Count your blessings

The holiday weekend might be over, but here are a few fun things to celebrate in sports this week:

The Yankees are looking more and more certain to miss the postseason.

The I-AA Southeast Missouri State Redhawks get their first ever shot at the Silver Ball.

The New Orleans Saints still have a home.

We have one more week of grand slam tennis to enjoy this season.

The US men's soccer team is going to play in Cuba for the first time since 1947.

Pitcher Cliff Lee is currently 20-2 on the 66-70 Cleveland Indians, a feat looking a little like Steve Carlton's ridiculous 1972 season with the Phillies.

Two players hit for the cycle on the same day for the first time since 1920.
