The Daily Buzz: Wednesday, July 3

Tuesday wasn’t just a busy day in sports, it was also a
historic one.

That, of course, is because, in Cincinnati, Homer Bailey
no-hit
the San Francisco Giants
just nine months after no-hitting the
Pirates in Pittsburgh,
making him just the sixth pitcher in MLB
history to be responsible for the league’s two most recent
no-nos.

Elsewhere,
Jay-Z
called out Scott Boras
(or “Boris,” as Hova put it)
in a new track, Nate Dogg’s son
verbally committed to Arizona, Dwight Howard,
who is
still
likely mulling Slim Thug’s sell job
on Houston,
heard the Mavs’ and Lakers’ recruiting pitches
and
Urban
Meyer snitched
on his old school.

As for the rest of the news…

• Speaking of Meyer, he has
refused to discuss Aaron Hernandez with
reporters, but he was more than happy to
talk some Tebow when given the chance.

reportedly
had ties
to Hernandez’ 2007 bar fight in Gainesville.
