The Players Championship is turning in to appointment viewing Sunday. Tiger is in contention. We can only hope he and Sergio are paired together in the final round. The two don’t like each other. We need a good Sunday showdown, golf needs a good Sunday showdown. Tiger vs Sergio, lets see it. Please.
Rough 3rd round for Iowa native and Drake alum Zach Johnson. Johnson cards a 4-over 76. He’s now at -3 for the tournament in a tie for 38th.
Want to see Lee Westwood whiff? Here you go. I know how you feel Lee…
The Barnstormers finally win their first game at home, and not just win, but put a beatdown on the New Orleans VooDoo. 62-16. That’s one of the largest margins of victory I’ve seen in arena football. Stormers are now 4-4, two straight wins. Let’s keep it going, the summer will be a lot more fun when the Well is rockin.’
Norwalk native and Red Sox pitcher Joel Hanrahan is done for the season. Hanrahan will have season ending surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. Ouch. He’ll miss 6-9 months, possibly more. Hanrahan signed a 1 year $7-million deal with Boston in the off-season, it’s doubtful he will be back with the Sox. Hanrahan is a free-agent in the winter.
Finally some good news for the Drake basketball program. After promising Freshman Joey King transfers the Dogs get a solid commitment on Saturday. Iowa Falls Alden forward Casey Schlatter, 6’9″ verbally commits to Drake. Schlatter picks the Bulldogs over Creighton. He averaged 26 points a game last season.
By now everyone has heard of Charles Ramsey, the man who rescued the 3 girls in Cleveland. What a surprise, he already has a song about him. Here it is.
The Powerball is $270 million. I really want to win.
CBS cancels ‘CSI: NY.’ I liked that show.
Congrats to all the recent graduates. I graduated high school 13 years ago, college 9 years ago. Man, time flies. I remember all of it like it was yesterday.
I’M not that guy who goes around showing pictures of his kids all day long, but my wife text-ed me this tonight. My 2 month old son Jack looks confused/bewildered beyond belief while my daughter Adrienne looks wild and crazy, which she is. They crack me up.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there. You deserve to have a great Sunday.
