Saints beat Colts 62-7
It was a day for the history books when the Saints and Colts met.

New Orleans had over 600 yards of offense despite resting most of its starters in the fourth quarter.

Mancester City beats Manchester United 6-1
The Manchester derby, to determine the top spot in the Premier League, was a clinic by the City team. United could not find a way to respond as Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko both scored twice. It is the worst home loss for United since 1955 and the first time they allow six goals at home since 1931.

Mexico beats Costa Rica 4-1
The final score does not reflect the humiliation Mexico gave its former coach Ricardo La Volpe in the Gold Cup. The Mexican team had a 4-0 lead at halftime, despite no goals from their attacking duo Giovani Dos Santos and Javier "El Chicharito" Hernandez. The team showed mercy in the second half, otherwise the score line could have easily read 8-0.

Mavericks beat Lakers 122-86
In the last day of Phil Jackson's legendary coaching career, the Lakers did everything possible to humiliate him. Not only did they lose by a margin of almost 40 points, to get swept in the series, but they did it with no class as both Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum were ejected. Jason Terry was the story of the game with 32 points, including a record-breaking nine 3-pointers in the game.
