UPDATE 11:42 am: LeBron did indeed show up at the Summit County Courthouse near Akron for Jury duty, but he was not selected (shocking) and was set home with the rest of the jurors at 10:30 a.m., reports the Akron Beacon-Journal.
11:17 am: The odds of LeBron James actually getting put on a jury is about the same as Emily Ratajkowski calling to see what I’m up to tonight…
Nonetheless, nobody gets out of jury duty.
Much like getting the car registered or paying taxes, there are certain parts of the bureaucracy, certain parts of our civic duty nobody gets out of. Not LeBron, not anyone.
But again, expect the courthouse to let him go by lunch. He’s not going to be on a slip-and-fall civil case jury.

Dwyane Wade has spoken out about the Trayvon Martin case before, he even had written “RIP Trayvon” on his shoes during a game at one point. But he and his two sons took it to the next level posing for the cover of Ebony Magazine this month.
Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African-American, was shot and killed walking back to the house where he was staying in Stanford, Florida. Martin was confronted by neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman (despite police telling him to stay in his car), a struggle followed and Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. The case has drawn national coverage and focused attention on race relations and the “stand your ground” laws, which in Florida allowed Zimmerman to be found not guilty of any wrongdoing.
Wade’s image is a powerful statement.
I’d love for things like this to be a stepping off point to a thoughtful conversation about race…

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – If you’ve been living under a rock, the Nats and Braves nearly found themselves in a brawl after Julio Teheran plunked Bryce Harper on the first pitch of his first at-bat following his 3rd inning home run Tuesday night.
Both benches and both bullpens cleared as Harper tossed his bat and jawed vociferously at Teheran on his way to first base, but ultimately, no punches were thrown, a warning was issued to both sides, and play resumed in the fifth.
Nats’ manager Davey Johnson addressed the brawl with the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan Wednesday morning, and the overwhelming takeaway was: “things will even out.”
Here’s their conversation about the aftermath:
Lurch: Did you think about retaliating after that?
Davey: The way you retaliate is guys get pumped up, and Ryan Zimmerman almost did it. He almost hit one out. That’s the way you fire back…

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) — Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will miss this weekend’s road course race at Watkins Glen after breaking his right leg in a sprint car race Monday night at Southern Iowa Speedway.
A spokesman for Stewart said the 42-year-old driver broke his right tibia and fibula and had surgery after he was transported to a local hospital. An update was expected Tuesday afternoon, and Stewart-Haas Racing did not immediately announce a replacement driver for Stewart’s No. 14 Chevrolet at Watkins Glen, where Stewart is a five-time winner.

The sprint car accident came a day after Stewart finished ninth in the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway. He’s 11th in the Sprint Cup standings with five races to go until the Chase for the championship field is set.
Stewart was leading the 30-lap feature in a 360…
