Sunday Afternoon Update: The San Diego Open is providing some pretty compelling viewing due to some weather moving in. This might be fun!
Don’t forget to keep an eye on Golf Channel. I am pretty sure they’ll pick up the finish of the Singapore Open, where Jordan Spieth still has a chance in the weather-delayed conclusion. He has one hole to play, the leader has three. Jordan trails by two. Click here to get Singapore local time.
Super Bowl: This needs to be said. We have the first interesting Super Bowl in years. Peyton Manning. Cam Newton. Nothing more needs to be said.
But the media hates this matchup. To them, there is “little interest” in the game because there is no team with ties to a major media market. So what did the media do? Why, they turned the game into a race issue, of course. All based on one offhand remark from Cam.
Charles Barkley once again hits the nail on the head:
Also, Barkley aimed some of his strong opinions at ESPN, saying the network is using race to frame its Super Bowl 50 pregame narrative.
“ESPN has already started their crap about black versus white, good versus evil and I know a lot of those fools over there got radio talk shows,” he said. “It really annoys the hell out of me.”
There was a saying about pickup trucks I heard when growing up: “I’d rather my sister be a whore than my brother drive a Dodge.” Well, I’d rather my sister be a whore than my brother be a sports reporter.
Jordan: We’ll have to wait until tonight to see what happens. A weather delay stopped play with one hole to go for Jordan, who trails by two. The leader still had several holes yet to play and has shown some signs of nerves. If Jordan doesn’t win, I hope Song does.
Mickelson’s Woes: This isn’t going away. The kid played as an amateur on Dec 6 in the Aussie Masters. He “won” 5 grand from Mickelson on Dec 21. He signed with Nike on Jan 15.
What part of “Phil Mickelson handed the kid $5,000 while recruiting him” don’t you understand?
