TODAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Tonight on HBO

NEWSMAKERS

Michael Phelps

Eight gold medals, seven world records. Not bad, kid. As for what’s next, I hear the Ravens are still searching for a QB.

Usain Bolt

Best. Name. Ever. At least for a sprinter. The 100-meter world record holder takes his shot at the 200 this morning.

Chris Henry

He’s back in the NFL … for now. Replacing one injured head case with an oft-suspended one only makes sense to the Bengals.

Rafael Nadal

Bring on the U.S. Open for Rafa. He ascended to the ATP’s No. 1 spot a day after winning an Olympic gold medal.

Greg Maddux

Another late-season deal landed the future Hall of Famer on the Dodgers again. He needs two more wins to pass Roger Clemens.

TWT FIVE “ FANTASY FOOTBALL SLEEPERS

1. Steve Slaton, RB - Former WVU back slated to get playing time with the Texans regulars this weekend.

2. Mike Martz calling the shots, former top pick could take next step.

3. Cincinnati.

4. Brett Favre touchdown pass may have raised his profile a bit.

5. Brandon Lloyd, WR - Believe it or not, the former Redskins bust starts for the Bears.
