Adam Scott reaction to
letting the Claret Jug
slip away

Cough, cough, cough. That’s what happened to Adam Scott at the 141st British Open on Sunday as Scott was four shots ahead with only four holes to play and Scott did the un-thinkable.  He bogeyed them all.  Not one, not two, not three, but all four holes and had to fight back from crying a river on the 18th hole as Ernie Els made his charge earlier and was already in the clubhouse as Els finished with a 7 under par thus claiming his second Claret Jug.  The aforementioned Scott came in 2nd with a 6 under par and Tiger Woods and Brandt Snedeker finished 3 under par tied for third.

The Boys of Summer were swinging their bats in the American League in Major League Baseball as the Toronto Blue Jays literally spanked the Boston Red Sox 15-7 with back-to-back homers for a total of four, the Minnesota Twins got past the Kansas City Royals 7-5 as Ryan Doumit had double homers, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Cleveland Indians 4-3 with a homer from Wilson Betemit, the New York Yankees lost in 12 innings to the Oakland A’s 5-4 in come from behind win, while the Texas Rangers were crushed the LA Angels 7-4 as Albert Pujos went yard for the 18th time, the Chicago White Sox was defeated by two runs 6-4 against the Detroit Tigers as Miguel Cabrera belted his 299th and his 300th homers and the Seattle Mariners got past the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 Blake Beaven allow only 4 hits over 8 innings to capture the win.
USA Basketball continued their tune-up with a formidable opponent in Argentina as they have Manu Ginobili, Carlos Delfino and Luis Scola, all NBA players on their roster and USA Basketball gave the appearance they would cruise to an easy win but the Argentinians had other plans late in the 4th as they trimmed the lead to 78-74 before Kevin Durant and Chris Paul knocked in 3 pointers to extend the lead and take the in for good 86-80.
Calgary, Alberta was the landing pad for the octagon in UFC 149 as they had a plethora of fights starting with Renan Barao used all his physical advantages to claim to get the unanimous win over Urijah Faber to claim interim bantamweight title, Hector Lombard picked a fine time to have his 25 fight win streak come to an end in his highly anticipated UFC debut as he lost a split decision against Tim Boetsch, while veteran Cheick Kongo captured the unanimous decision over Shawn Jordan.  Take down after takedown by welterweight Brian Ebersole was thwarted by James Head to give Ebersole his first Octagon loss, Matt Clements used his phenomenal grabbling to secure the win over Chris Clements in the 3rd round, while the re-match between middleweight Courts McGee proved to be another loss against Nick Ring in a unanimous decision, and it didn’t take long for Francisco Rivera to honor his mom as his KNOCKED OUT Roland Delorme at the 4:19 mark in the 1st round, Bryan Caraway extended his win streak by three against Mitch Gagnon with a submission in the 3rd and finally, it was the 7 second KNOCK OUT as light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo KNOCK OUT Anthony Perosh in only in 7 seconds and after the fight proceeded to do the robot….and was getting it too!
In sporting news, Mark Emmert, President of the NCAA is expected to dole out the detailed punishment against Penn State at a 9a EST press conference this morning.  Although it’s expected not to be the so called ‘death penalty’ which would have suspended the program for a year, penalties will most likely include, according to sources, significant loss of scholarships and loss of multiple bowl games.  However, with these penalties being so severe, the death penalty would be preferred.
