Phil Mickelson win his
1st Open Championship
It was the one of the biggest comebacks and perhaps the biggest choke jobs of the year as the 2013 Open Championship concluded in Scotland with Phil “Lefty” Mickelson being 5 back of the leader at the start of the fourth round but in unbelievable fashion surged past and won his first British Open and 5th major championship with a 3 under par while Steve Westwood and Tiger Woods faltered and finished tied for 3rd and tied for 6th respectfully.

Mike Napoli belts
a walk-off homer
The Boys of Summer were swinging their bats on Sunday as I run down a couple few scores in Major League Baseball as the New York Mets SHUT OUT the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 as Matt Harvey was stellar on the mound with 10 strikes, the LA Dodgers blasted, bamboozled and beat up, Alliteration, I Love It, the Washington Nationals 9-2 as Matt Kemp homered and garnered 3 RBI’s as the Dodgers got the sweep and the San Diego Padres lost by a run 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals as pitcher Adam Wainwright won his National League leading 13th win and in the American League, the Oakland A’s SHUT OUT and manhandled the LA Angels 6-0, 6-ZIP, 6-NOTHING as Bartolo Colon reached 13 wins, the Seattle Mariners literally spanked the Houston Astros 12-5 as Nick Franklin launched a Grand Slam and in one of the oldest baseball  rivalries, the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees were embroiled in an epic battle with 11 innings played until Mike Napoli belted his 2nd homer of the night in walk-off fashion to oust the Bronx Bombers 8-7.

Glory Johnson
was ballin' 
for the Shock
The Ladies of Summer were running their plays on the hard-court on Sunday as the Indiana Fever trounced the Washington Mystics 65-52 as Tamika Catchings notched a double-double with 23 points and 10 boards, the Atlanta Dream had a nightmare as they were literally smacked upside the head 90-63 by the Tulsa Shock as Glory Johnson poured in 24 points and grabbed 10 boards and the Minnesota Lynx got past the Phoenix Mercury 82-77 as Maya Moore came up HUGE when her team needed her most with a 3 pointer, a stolen inbounds pass and a made layup all in the final minute of the game.

Antonio Morrison aka 
The Barking Gator was 
arrested for a 2nd
For your Quick News & Notes, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees will not return from the disabled list because of a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps, the United States Men’s Soccer team rolled past El Salvador 5-1 to earn a spot in the Gold Cup semi-finals, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was able to practice Sunday for the first time since undergoing a surgical procedure to remove a cyst in his back in April, Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill has pulled out of this week's Team USA camp in Las Vegas due to an unknown scheduling conflict and finally, Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison has been arrested for allegedly barking at a police dog and resisting arrest and will miss at least the first two games of the season.  And it gets better, his defense for barking at the dog was the dog barked first…..hmmm, I wonder if he was a Q Dawg….HUH?!
