Guess Who's Back?

Of course this would be Brett Favre! He's the most indecisive player EVER in the history of sports. It's ironic that he's so indecisive, a horrible quality for a quarterback. Actually, I wanted to bring up something else; ESPN has changed into a melodramatic news station. They milked the hell out of LeBron going to the heat, report on Tim Tebow everyday, and talk about Brett Favre's indecision every single day! ESPN's analysts constantly changed their predictions about where LeBron would go, and this just added to unnecessary hype and drama, which ultimately will cost the city of Cleveland millions of dollars and heartbreaks. Tim Tebow is a third string quarterback, yet he gets a story every day. Brett Favre is a crazy old redneck who can't decide whether he wants to retire or not, but I DO NOT want to hear about any of this EVERY day. Why can't ESPN be like it used to be, analyzing the sports themselves. I liked when highlights of a game weren't just a one minute clip and that was the end of it. Now, they're focused on these drama queens. It would be OK if they weren't shown every day, but ESPN is focusing on them too much. The anchors are still doing great though, this problem is with the producers or whoever it concerns. I wrote this poorly so you might not understand or be completely against this, so that's fine, but if you understand what I'm getting at then that's great.

Kaymer Wins at Whisting Straits

Martin Kaymer won the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in a three hole playoff. This playoff included Bubba Watson, but did not include Dustin Johnson, who was assessed a two stroke penalty after the final hole in which he was tied for the lead. The penalty was for grounding his club, but the spot where he hit from was not clearly a bunker, as it was trampled by the masses the entire tournament. The course has over 1,000 bunkers, so it is very difficult to determine the difference between a bunker and not a bunker sometimes. Watson birdied the first hole of the playoff with a Kaymer par. Kaymer birdied the second playoff hole, and Watson hit a par. The final playoff hole was a five tough 500 yard par four. Both drove right, and Watson went for it on his second shot and hit it into the water. Kaymer won the tourney with a bogey, while Watson double bogeyed. Tiger and Phil both finished in the middle of the pack.
Any thoughts? What do you think of the year of the twenty year old golfer?

Revis sitting out

In an interview, Jets owner Woody Johnson said his gut feeling is that Darrelle Revis will not be on the field this season. His current deal is for one million this year. He wants to be the highest paid corner in the league, which is fifteen million a year. He is holding out of training camp, and has accumulated 148,000 dollars in fines already. All signs say a deal is not close. This would be a huge hurt to a great Jets defense, which may be the best in the league. Without Revis island, the Jets super bowl chances take a huge hit.
Any predictions as to what will happen?

Tiger Struggles

Tiger Woods participated in the Bridgestone Invitational this weekend at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, and had his worst performance of his career. Since there is no cut at the Bridgestone, Tiger played all four rounds, and shot an 18 over. This also included a final round 77. Prior to this weekend, he had played this invitational ten times, and won it seven times. He had also finished in the top ten all ten times. This weekend he finished 78th, second to last. He played so poorly, it is tough to think he will ever return to form. Please post your comments or insight on this shocking turn of events.

Favre Retires!?

Is Brett Favre actually retired? That is what reports are saying, as he has reportedly texted some teammates and coaches from the team. This is certainly not the first time he has retired, and until I actually see him not on the field week one. The Iron Man has played the most consecutive games by a quarterback in NFL history by more than 100 games over Peyton Manning. The Iron Man also has the most wins all time by a quarterback.
Share your opinions on whether or not he will be on the field week one.
