I'll tell you what to watch for this weekend: heat. Remember to take it easy outdoors.

Tar Heels in the Pros

NBA

In case you haven't heard, the Suns traded Steve Nash and signed Goran Dragic. Adam talked to Phoenix's XTRA 910 about Kendall Marshall.

MLB

It's the last MLB weekend before the All-Star Break, and Dusty, Kyle and the Mariners are in Oakland.

MiLB

Greg Holt, Colin Bates, Brian Goodwin and the Hagerstown Suns are in Greensboro next week, July 10-13.

Here's an update on recently drafted Diamond Heels:

Michael Morin (Angels) is 1-0 with a save and 13 strikeouts with the Orem Owlz.

Jacob Stallings (Pirates) has nine hits with the State College Spikes. Here's some video of a couple of at-bats and Jake (surprise) gunning down a runner.

 

Here's a story on Rays draftee Tommy Coyle's adjustment to the pro game, and learning from younger brother Sean (who committed to Carolina but signed with the Red Sox). 'Ninja' is hitting .250 for the Hudson Valley Renegades.

Cody Penny (Indians) is 0-1 in four relief appearances for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.

R.C. Orlan (Nationals) has signed, but may still be rehabbing from injury as he is not yet on a roster.

Entertainment

Tuesday, we said goodbye to a North Carolina legend, Andy Griffith. This weekend, WRAL2 will have marathons of The Andy Griffith Show from 1 pm to 1 am on Saturday and Sunday. Netflix is streaming the show as well. Here is one of my favorite scenes from the show:

 

And remember when Aunt Bee's freezer acted up and she didn't want to "call the man?"

 

UNC New Media put together a terrific presentation of Griffith's 'What It Was, Was Football' set to images and video of Carolina football.

 

The Amazing Spider-Man opened this week. Are you excited for this? Feel's like we've seen it before.

This weekend also brings Katy Perry's new 3D movie. So, there's that.

Make your plans now: The Zombies come to Cat's Cradle on July 29.

Stay cool, folks.
