• Jason Giambi finally admitted to steroid use. He will now meet with MLB steroid czar George Mitchell, thus becoming the only current player to cooperate with the probe. [NYDN]
• The Haywards — a wealthy Native American family, who built the Foxwoods casino — say they're being "shunned" and "pushed out" of the 800-person Connecticut tribe. Which makes them the Trumps of the Pequot. [NYT]
• And the city credits its "hard-hitting" TV ads (starring Ronaldo the Hole-in-the-Throat Guy) with reducing the local smoking rates to a historic low. Could be that. Or could be the fact that you can't smoke anywhere. [NY Metro]
