July 1 was a day where sports writers from the west coast to the east coast stayed by their computers and didn't budge an inch, fearing they'd miss the next big NBA free agent signing. Those of us here at Bleacher Report did the exact same thing, though I'm sure some of us moved a little more than others. We wanted to see what LeBron James was going to do next, where Dwayne Wade was going, and if Chris Bosh would join either of them. We didn't want to miss whatever breaking news was coming next.

I've learned a hard lesson over the last few days, a lesson that I should always have in my mind. Unfortunately, it took a tragedy to remind me what's really important in life. So often we turn to sports to get away from whatever is going onĀ in our lives, but there are also times where we hold sports as something more important than those around us.

By Todd Kaufmann On July - 24 - 2009
If you're taking a vacation to beautiful San Diego, CA and you've never been there before, take the time to go see things you've never seen, experience all San Diego has to offer.
