Starting next week we’ll be introducing a new Sports Bog feature.
Send me an email or a message on the Sports Bog Facebook page and include a question you have for a specific player. I’ll pick some of the best ones and get them answered for you.
Please keep the questions interesting but respectful. No clown questions. Also, keep the current season in mind. You have a better chance of getting your Gio Gonzalez questions answered right now than questions for Ovi, who is clearly living it up in London.
The first step is to go like our super fun Facebook page. Do this for two reasons. One, questions from our Facebook friends will get priority. Two, we’ll be posting the answers we get on the page.
And yes, this is clearly a devious way to get you to join in on our social networking fun. But it will be worth it.
Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
*Sally Jenkins on Michael Phelps’s legacy.
* Kayla Harrison has overcome some terrible things to become the first American to win and Olympic gold in judo.
* Ryan Lochte fell just a bit short of the six gold medals he was after.
* Jason Reid says RGIII has “re-energized” Shanahan.
* Jayson Werth is back and the Nats shut out the Phillies.

This has made the rounds in the last day or two, but it makes me laugh, so happy Friday.
