Andy Murray won Wimbledon Sunday, ousting Novak Djokovic and giving Great Britain its first home-grown champion of tennis' biggest event in 77 years.

Murray, the tournament's #2 seed, bested #1 seed Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

With Kate Middleton due any day now ... quite a week for the UK!

Fred Perry was the last British man to win Wimbledon in 1936. Queen Elizabeth II was 10 years old and may actually remember that, but few others do.

Andy Murray, 26, hails from Dunblane, Scotland ... which is currently setting the record for most pints consumed by a single town in a single day.

He won the 2012 U.S. Open as well as the Olympics, which were held at Wimbledon, but had yet to break through in the tournament he coveted most.

Andy had been knocking on the proverbial door for some time, reaching the semifinals each year from 2009-2011, then losing 2012's final to Roger Federer.

Today he was finally able to get it done, despite facing the world's top-ranked player (and 2011 Wimbledon champion) in Djokovic. Congratulations, Andy!

Alexander Bradley, the man who claims that Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face earlier this year, has been ordered to appear before a grand jury.

This is separate from the murder of Olin Lloyd, for which Hernandez is charged, and a 2012 Boston double homicide in which he is a person of interest.

Hernandez

Bradley has been ordered by a judge in Massachusetts to testify before a grand jury later this month; it's unclear if police are trying establish any link.

He is scheduled to appear July 17. Bradley had been actively fighting the interstate subpoena, claiming that he required medical treatment in Florida.

Houston, you have a center.

According to multiple reports, Dwight Howard will sign a contract with the Houston Rockets in the coming days, putting an end to one of the more irritating free agent periods in recent memory.

Dwight Howard, Rockets

Howard led the league in rebounding last season with the Lakers, but he never meshed well with Kobe Bryant or Coach Mike D'Antoni.

At least Joey Chestnut is overeating today more than you are. By a lot.

Crushing his fellow gluttons at the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Competition on Coney Island, Joey devoured 69 franks, a new personal record.

The moment where he tops his personal best of 68 ... magical.

Matt Stone finished in second place with a paltry 51 in 10 minutes.

Chestnut triumphed last year with 62 hot dogs devoured, but outdid himself here in 2013, capturing the $10,000 prize and coveted mustard-yellow championship belt.

Which will probably need to be resized ASAP.

Jay-Z disses Scott Boras in his new song "Crown," calling the uber-sports agent "over" and bragging about pilfering one of his biggest clients.

The Grammy-winning rapper, who now represents MLB and NBA players as an agent, recently signed New York Yankees all-star Robinson Cano.

Until recently, Cano was repped by Bora$, perhaps the biggest and most successful agent in the biz. So it was without a doubt quite a coup for Jay-Z.

In the song from his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail, Jay name-checks both, rapping “Scott Boras, you over baby. Robinson Cano, you coming with me.”

Asked if he had a reply to Jay-Z's "Crown" lyrics, Boras told ESPN:

NFL star turned murder suspect Aaron Hernandez is believed to have rented a secret "flop house" near his home for storage, according to police.

A. Hernandez

After Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder for the execution-style shooting of Odin Lloyd, more and more information has come out.

The latest revelation? A $1,200/month apartment he leased in Franklin, Mass., with boxes of ammunition and other items of interest inside.

Police found out about it from Carlos Ortiz, one of Hernandez’s friends, who said he was with the athlete the night he allegedly made plans to shoot Lloyd.

Articles of clothing recovered from the apartment are similar to what Hernandez had worn the night of the crime, June 17, according to law enforcement.

Chad Johnson is out of jail and making the most of his free time. Sort of. Kind of. Depending on how you look at it.

A day after Arizona Cardinals rookie Robert Gill shocked the universe by running 25 miles per hour on a treadmill, the former NFL wideout has released a video of himself trying to one-up the undrafted 29-year old.

By running 24 miles per hour... with a 2.5% incline... from a standing start. Watch the impressive display of speed here:
