We take a look at the World Cup where, Tuesday, Uruguay beat Italy 1-0, sending the Italians home. But that news was trumped by the teeth marks left on Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder after he collided with Uruguay's Luis Suarez. And in soccer news closer to home, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has expressed interest in the construction of a soccer stadium in Boston for the New England Revolution. Also, we discuss NBA star LeBron James opting out of his deal with the Miami Heat.
