According to the Fex Ex Cup standings Tiger Woods is once again the best golfer in the world. With an impressive come from behind victory on Sunday Tiger won his 3rd tournament of the season and passed Jack Nicklaus to become 2nd all time in PGA tour wins. His 3 wins on tour this year are at Bay Hill (Arnold Palmer's tournament), The Memorial (Jack Nicklaus tournament), and the AT&T National (his own tournament). That's kinda gangster, but we all know Tiger's barometer for success is measured soley on winning majors. Until he wins one of those the journey back to the top isn't complete. When you're the athlete of the decade the level of expectation is enormous. We'll see if he gets one. Here are some observations over the weekend.
It looks like Lammy Kardashian will get his wish. The Los Angeles Clippers are interested in trading for the sensitive superstar retruning him to the city where he feels the most comfortable and plays his best ball. If the trade happens dare I say the Clippers might have more talent than the Lakers. What is the world coming to?
You may find this hard to believe, but there wasn't a single Seattle Mariner that made the all star team (extreme sarcasm). What's even harder to believe is baseball's highest paid player (Alex Rodriguez) didin't make the squad either. Think the Yankees are starting to feel like they overpaid for their 3rd basemen?
Jamaica's 100 meter team is real serious. When the world's fasest man comes in 2nd during Olympic qualifying you have to think a medal sweep in London is a definite possibility. The best the USA can hope for is a silver medal in the 4x100 meter relay. Yohan Blake, Usain Bolt, and Asafa Powell are too strong.
Without Chris Bosh, D Wade, Derrick Rose, and Dwight Howard USA Basketball is far from a lock to bring back the gold medal. Spain looks like the biggest challenge to upset the Red, White, and Blue with the Gasol brothers, Serge Ibaka, and Rudy Fernandez on their team. Team USA lacks the depth of years past, but CP3, Kobe, LeBron, KD, and Andrew Bynum should be able to hold down the fort. Stay tuned.
In 2014 the Seattle Seahawks will select running back Isaiah Crowell in the draft. How do I know this? Crowell was dismissed from the Georgia football team after being arrested on felony weapons charges. Crowell was slated to be one of the nation's leading rushers this season before his off the field issues. This guy has "Pete Carroll Special" written all over him. Pete will give him a second chance because of his talent and before you know it he'll be in the Pro Bowl. One team's loss is the Seahawks gain.
