In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ It won’t be cheap for Segway to hire Usain Bolt as a spokesperson.

▪ As timeliness goes, the Giants acquisition of Marlon Byrd is spot on.

▪ Golf doesn’t care if you are Jordan Spieth.

▪ When it comes to high school football, De La Salle is De La Salle, but Texas is still Texas.

▪ An eight-run lead is not enough against Japan’s Little League champion.
