Stage 13: A 135-mile, mainly flat ride from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to the Mediterranean seaside resort of Le Cap D'Agde. It featured a short but incredibly steep Mont Saint-Clair climb just 14 miles from the finish that eliminated top sprinters such as Mark Cavendish, Matt Goss and Tyler Farrar from the pack contending for the win. Winner: Andre Greipel of Germany. The Lotto-Belisol sprinter scored his third stage win of the Tour by beating a pack that included all the top overall contenders, including yellow jersey holder Bradley Wiggins of Britain.

Nets guard Deron Williams figures to be the blue chip free agent this summer. "People get traded all the time," he told Yahoo. "[Teams] don't get backlash as an organization. If [players] leave, we are not loyal, we are ungrateful.... On Twitter … they are out there bashing me, saying to me I'm a traitor. I didn't ask to be here. I got traded. " Wizards guard Jordan Crawford scored 28 points in a recent loss to Indiana, but on a fastbreak, he uncorked a bad lob pass that was grabbed by Pacers guard Paul George . The official scorer put it down as a blocked shot.

David Edwards, a 42-year-old from Anaheim, and David Contreras, a 25-year-old from Huntington Beach, stood together Thursday morning proudly holding up their new purchases.

Happy Aaron Rodgers Day Eve, everyone! Ah, don't you just love the holiday season. Thanksgiving just last month, Christmas a mere two weeks away, New Year's Day right after that. And this year is very special because we get a day to honor the Green Bay Packers' Super Bowl-winning quarterback smack dab in the middle of all that, on Dec. 12! That's 12/12/12 -- a.k.a. Rodgers' jersey number/Rodgers' jersey number/Rodgers' jersey number. Get it?

But just what does one do to celebrate Aaron Rodgers Day?
