- This Sunday is the 2nd annual Tour de Brooklyn, which is part of Bike Month from Transportation Alternatives. Tour de Brooklyn is 18 miles long and starts and ends in Bed-Stuy's Herbert Von King Park after going through several Brooklyn neighborhoods. While pre-registration is over, you can still ride in the race by registering from 8-9 a.m. at the starting point Sunday morning. The race starts at 9:30 a.m.

- If it wasn't clear enough when it first came out, lots of fans are telling the Mets that the new song they have blows. The song, titled "Our Team. Our Time." was written by two people not affiliated with the Mets and is supposed to be catchy and hip, but clearly it's not catchy at all. Z100 told the Post that one of the writers is actually getting death threats because the song is so ill-received. For his part, the writer denies it.

- At Shea this weekend, there are two items of historical significance - Barry Bonds and the Negro League Museum. While you can question the legitimacy of the former (Bonds sits at #2 on the career home runs list), there's no doubt that the Negro Leagues exhibit called "Times of Greatness" deserves your attention. Besides, what better way is there to spend your weekend by going to the exhibit before you chant Barroids with the rest of the fans at Shea. The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
