It’s a battle of the sexes at the 139th Belmont Stakes, as filly Rags to Riches takes on the boys, including Preakness winner Curlin. Post time is 6:25 PM.
P.S. If you can’t tell from the title of this post, I miss Dave Johnson.
UPDATE: Rags to Riches wins!!! The first filly to win the Belmont in 102 years, and the first ever at a mile-and-a-half! And she won even after stumbling out of the starting gate.
The wearing o’ the green will honor the 30th anniversary of the 1977 national-championship team that wore green in a 49-19 victory over USC, with Weis looking on from the student section. Unfortunately for Weis and the Irish, I’m thinking that the similarities between the two games will pretty much end with the color of the jerseys.

Professor William Kelley is returning to Notre Dame Law School after more than two years as deputy counsel to the president. Replacing him at the White House will be former Xerox general counsel J. Michael Farren. (Hat tip: Brian Foster.)
It isn’t easy being green.
