Where have all the long streaks gone?
The current incarnation of SFTC is nearing the end of its third month without any Streaker reaching 25 straight wins. While that wouldn't have been a shocker in rounds one or two, the StreakMaster has been much more lenient this time around, listing many matchups that the sportsbooks saw as 3-1 or 4-1 favorites. Hmmm. The good news is, reaching the Streak Seven is quite attainable for all you would-be millionaires!

Monday's slate
A comparatively light day, but still plenty of opportunities to boost your Streak. MLB is again the mainstay, bolstered by the start of Wimbledon. We've also put up the end of the US Open golf, some Under-21 Eurosoccer, and the championship series for NCAA baseball.

Early risers can get their tennis fix from either ESPN2 or ESPN360. On the Streak, Almagro tries his luck against Monaco, while unseeded Malisse looks to take out Rainer Schuettler.

If you prefer America's pastime, the Cardinals visit the Mets in an ESPN2 matchup. Later on, the Giants cross the Bay to take on the A's, while the Rockies head to Anaheim to face the Angels.

College World Series - LSU Tigers versus Texas Longhorns
Only two teams remain in the CWS, and it's a best-of-three for the college baseball title. Game One is scheduled to begin at approximately 7 p.m. Monday evening between two legendary programs.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers broke even, with favorites Boston and the Sparks offset by losers Sri Lanka and Jeff Gordon
