Mayor says me "might have tacos" for dinner in support of Latinos. // Players' social-media activity is being tracked. // In the history of American economy, no company made more money in one quarter than Apple did in the wake of Steve Jobs' death. // Arresting images of homeless people. // Where morality flows in your brain ...

★ I try to read everything you see in the Wakeup Call before I link it. I've not yet gotten to Pablo Torre's Herb Pope piece, but I know it's going to be good.

★ The details of San Diego State's hellish trip to Laramie, Wyo., are a headache and a half.

★ Loving your Bottom 10, Eamonn.

★ This Gary Williams tribute on the side of the Comcast Center needs to never get turned off during the night.

★ Goodman's Tuesday catch-all column is mandatory weekly reading, folks.

★ I read the entirety of this blog post on the value of "air" with that awful Chris Brown/Jordin Sparks song in my head the whole time. And it's still on repeat. Blast you, Pomeroy.

★ Brutally honest headline from The Onion. It hurts -- but it's true!

★ When you're Kentucky hoops and you're not slaying pawns nightly, people will being to write things like this. The expectations are that high.

★ An upstart blog called Gotham Hoops passed along a post about Javon McCrea, so I'm happy to oblige them with a link this morning. McCrea's maybe the best mid-major player you know nothing about.

★ The quality work keeps coming from Rob Dauster as he and Troy Machir trek the nation on their #BIAHRoadTrip.

★ Missed this Monday -- Jereme Richmond, the Illinois miscreant, got 18 months' probation.

★ Wyoming boy can fly!

★ I did some legwork on my Gregg Marshall feature from yesterday, so allow me to get incest-like with the linkage here.

► Hey, look, it's UConn assistant Kevin Ollie in a local car commercial.
