On Paper
Aaron Hill Cylces
The Diamondbacks, Aaron Hill, has done something that is amazingly rare. Hitting for the cycle is on the same level as a no hitter. 294 times a player has hit for a cycle in a game and 276 times has a pitcher accomplished a no-no. On Friday night, Hill’s triple in the 6th clinched the cycle for Arizona 2nd baseman. The cycle is a great feat yet what Hill has accomplished in the last 12 days is one of the rarest baseball accomplishments in MLB history. On the 18th Hill hit for the cycle against the Mariners, which by having 2 cycles in the same season, he has become just the fourth player in history to accomplish that feat. 4 is coincidentally the number of pitchers who have had multiple no-hitters in the same season! Congrats to Hill and his amazing feat.

Upset Potential
Worlds Fastest Man
We remeber the summer of 2008 for Phelps golds and Usain Bolt’s ridiculous speed, yet what has happened since then? Many may not have been paying attention but Bolt didn’t win the most recent World Championship, due to a false start, and now he has been beaten on his own island! World Champion Yohan Blake defeated Bolt in the 100M by running a pedistrian 9.75! This type of rivalry makes for an even more exciting London. People who haven’t paid attention will be wondering how early Bolt will be able to celebrate during the 100M finals. The same people will be even more surprised if Blake blows by him with a gold medal on the line.

Don’t Bother
Staying Cool
Listen with the temps hitting triple digits, I will give you most important information. If you are under the age of 1, stay inside. If you are 12, go outside and take a water bottle and drink water often. If you are 90, stay inside. If you are between the ages of 17-50, does anyone have to tell you how to survive in the heat? Oh and don’t ask the Thunder how to survive the Heat!!
