It’s nice to see big corporations work things out so that someone like Craig Sager, who is battling acute myeloid leukemia, can work his first ever NBA Final. He was given a standing ovation by the Cleveland crowd and every interview he did was a real treat.

Catch Ball. Drink Beer

Sometimes you just gotta catch a foul ball in your beer and pound it down.

Lee Westwood is in the thick of it at the 116th US Open. Part of the reason is because he holed out from the fairway for an eagle at 14.

It’s called the ‘beautiful game’ for a reason. While it very much has an ugly side to it, sometimes it truly is beautiful as Spain showed us on Friday.
