Yesterday was a big day. Of course, I got in 6.5 hours of CLE, but that wasn't the best part of my day. My wife texted me before getting into my CLE that we have moved up to #11 for boys and #18 for girls in our Ethiopian adoption. We were #22 for boys just a couple of weeks ago, so we're moving up fast. And to answer your questions, there are more people that want girls, whereas my wife and I don't care if it's a boy or a girl (not that there's anything wrong with wanting a girl). Then, at 1:57 p.m. my brother-in-law (Red Raider) and his wife (Aggie) welcomed a new baby girl into the world, Emery. Finally, I got an email from a friend who has a ticket to game #3 of tonight's World Series with my name on it. Since most likely I'll miss the tail end of the game, I've got open threads scheduled for 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. and consider this your morning open thread.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Day 1 of the of the Gridiron Kings is in the books and the players are prepared for tomorrow's 7-on-7 competition that will match up the country's four regions -- Southeast, Southwest, West and Midwest to determine a champion. There are 64 players in all and they represent some of the elite football talent in the country. In fact, 22 ESPNU 150 prospects are in this event. One of the most impressive offensive players in today's practice session was Texas Tech quarterback commitment Michael Brewer (Austin, Texas/Lake Travis). He will lead the Southwest squad and Brewer's plan is to lead them to the championship. "This is awesome," Brewer said. "There are some incredible athletes out here that are so talented. Sure it will take a bit to get used to everyone. But I think if I am patient this offense will be great tomorrow. We can win this whole thing."

"We played well in the first quarter. Then (McRoy) started to put some points on the board, and we ran into some adversity. We had some guys who started putting their heads down." — Tarpon Springs coach Atif Austin Lakeland running back Javares McRoy, a speedster who has already committed to Texas Tech, was the star of the game, rushing for 285 yards on nine carries and scoring three touchdowns.

"That people were expecting Bellamy to win, that just pushed me more because I'm not a loser," McRoy said. "I work hard to win in everything I do." Coming into the race, McRoy, who was undefeated in the event this year, had the fastest seed time, 21.43 to Bellamy's 21.53. "I really wanted it," McRoy, who has signed with Texas Tech as a running back, said. "I can't explain how much I wanted it. This year, I slacked a little bit, but I picked it up when I could. I always wanted to win state."

Every summer at Dallas Cowboys training camp, little boys line the fence, cry out for autographs and maybe dream of someday playing for their favorite team. Years ago, Jamar Wall was one of those little kids. This summer, he’ll be one of the big guys inside the fence. The Texas Tech cornerback was taken by the Cowboys in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday. "It’s a great feeling,’’ Wall said. "Going anywhere would have been a great feeling. But staying in Dallas, it’s even better. It’s still close to home. My family can come to every home game, and playing with (Cowboys linebacker) Brandon Williams again, who’s a great friend, I’m looking forward to that also.’’
