Let's face it. when it comes to getting in trouble with law, the PGA Tour guys have long been rank amateurs. Their biggest crime is often their fashion sense (yes, you Sergio Garcia and those yellow pants). You don't even see many DUIs from this staid cr… more »

It's no secret that Duke basketball is the phoniest sports program in America led by the phoniest coach in the world. When Gerald Henderson went Blue Devil - common translation: acted like a baby - over North Carolina putting another pounding on Coach K'… more »

Tucson not as hard to get to from East Coast as you assume: Even on strand-you JetBlue

One of the things that always gave Phoenix-Scottsdale a major advantage over Tucson in the race for winter getaway golfers is the ease of getting direct flights into Phoenix Sky Harbor from almost anywhere. The Valley still holds a clear edge in this reg… more »

John Daly was minding his own business at the Honda Classic when disaster struck .... Someone clicked a camera. And we all know how crippling that can be right? No, actually we don't. Only Big John with the little heart does. For when Daly heard a… more »

PGA Tour needs more play-it-love-it courses like PGA National's Champion to draw non-Tiger interest

Send feedback »
I'll be tuning to catch some Honda Classic coverage over the next four days. Even with no Tiger Woods, no Phil Mickelson and nothing news worthy likely to take place. My viewership has nothing to do with a sudden love for all the Golf Channel's fancy… more »

Martin Scorsese's Oscar for Departed as much a sham as Mickelson being credited for Tigers' majors

6 feedbacks »
One more thing before this year's Oscars fade away, only to be recalled by insomniacs who need something more boring than sheep to conjure up. The only thing more egregious than Peter O'Toole being denied Oscar for the eighth time is Martin Scorsese fina… more »

Oscar farce: A world where Peter O'Toole can't win a big one any easier than Michelle Wie is out of whack

7 feedbacks »
In their infinite wisdom, the folks at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences elected to deny Peter O'Toole an Oscar for the eighth time. Which makes about as much sense as most of the lame acceptance speeches. Robbing one of the greatest act… more »

Thank heavens Tiger Woods' fraud of a streak is finally, mercifully "officially" over

Siena Golf Club continues its sandy intimidation in Las Vegas

Send feedback »
Siena Golf Club isn't one of the first courses you think about in Las Vegas golf. It's not one of the no-doubt showstoppers like Paiute Wolf, The Falls or TPC Canyons. But Siena just might intimidate you like no other. That's because it does bunker… more »

Paula Creamer now 5 times better than Michelle Wie, plus she doesn't cheat like NASCAR snakes

In a weekend when NASCAR's Skoal-smacking band of cheaters held their version of the Super Bowl - only shirts and showers are optional - it's only fitting that Paula Creamer won for the fifth time in her young professional career. After all, Creamer is t… more »

Strolling the restaurants along the Worth Avenue section of Palm Beach can bring sticker shock - not to mention suit shock - for even a former New Yorker. Forget the $30 entree. Try the $45 entree and the $20 appetizer. And everyone seems to be wea… more »
