Well, the most interesting story of the day award goes to T.J. Quinn, a former New York Daily News reporter who is now with ESPN.

It was 10 years ago today when Quinn, then at the Daily News, broke the story of Bonds' grand jury testimony in the BALCO scandal. He was never supposed to hear the testimony, of course, but he did nonetheless.

How did he do it?

Well, a little luck ... a little quick thinking ... and the rest is history.

He revealed the entire story through a series of tweets. Deadspin has already captured them, so we won't bother to do the same.

But trust us: go have a look-see.
