Saturday

What do you figure the over/under is on how many #PGATour events #Tiger wins this year? I say 2. (Unless he wins Sunday. Then it’s 4.)

SEE RELATED:


Nice shot, Don Cheadle. You know what would be funny? If he hit it in the ocean on a hole — and took an 11. #PGATour #Oceans11

Faldo just told Bob Stoops that a backswing should be like reaching out to shake hands with somebody behind you… . #PGATour

… That’s how it always was with me. Of course, that “somebody” behind me was usually asking to play through. #PGATour

I love how they’re critiquing the swings of celebrities (e.g. Stoops, Aaron Rodgers) on the Pebble telecast… . #PGATour

… Wish they’d done that in the Buddy Hackett Era. #PGATour

Buddy probably would have said, “You should only be allowed to critique a swing if a guy actually has one.” #PGATour

Huey Lewis’ year is off to a flying start. Sings national anthem at #49ers#Saints playoff game and has golf swing critiqued on TV. #PGATour

As Terrell Stoglin was reminded tonight, Twitter doesn’t have recallable waivers. Once something’s out there, it’s out there. #Terps #ACC

Sunday

#Tiger and #Phil, the week after Super Sunday, paired in the final round. What a treat. I mean, how many more times is it going to happen?

That’s my way of saying that #Lefty (gasp) turns 42 this year. If he wins five more tournaments, he’ll be doing well. #Tiger #PGATour

#Phil just took a divot the size of my side lawn on No. 4. Hit the green, though. #Tiger #PGATour

#Tiger + #Phil are trying to win a golf tournament, + #CBS thinks we’d rather be watching the end of the Illinois-Michigan game. The horror.

What’s next, Heidi? #Tiger #Phil #PGATour

#Tiger has that “My life is a living hell” look on his face. Down 6 strokes in his head-to-head with #Phil, tee ball in a divot. #PGATour

For a second there, I thought that approach shot by Bill Belichick was going to be intercepted by Chase Blackburn. #Pats #Giants #PGATour

What #Phil is doing to #Tiger is a beatdown on the order of Faldo-Norman in the 3rd round of the British years ago. #PGATour

Hope that doesn’t mean that, at some future point, #Tiger will marry Chris Evert. #PGATour

And that, ladies and germs, was the worst Top 15 in #Tiger Woods history (and, of course, one of #Phil’s finest hours). #PGATour

About the only way it could have been worse for #Tiger is if the Jimmy Walker he finished behind was the guy from “Good Times.” #PGATour

If #Tiger and #Phil had been playing match play, it would have been over on the 14th green — #Lefty 6 and 4. #PGATour

#Lefty trounces #Tiger to win at Pebble Beach”? (ESPN.com) Try “disembowels.” #PGATour

Would have given anything, by the way, to have Tony Romo Mic’d Up for his final round with #Tiger. Probably was a real bleepfest. #PGATour

The Jessica Korda who just won the Aussie golf Open is the daughter of Petr, 3-time finalist in D.C.’s #tennis tourney. #LeggMason

Petr won the ‘92 D.C. title (over Henrik Holm) and was runner-up in ‘91 (to Andre Agassi) and ‘97 (to Michael Chang). #LeggMason #tennis

In a year in which the #Giants stumbled onto Victor Cruz, the #Knicks shouldn’t be allowed to stumble onto Jeremy Lin. It’s just unfair. #NBA

Every time I see a male country/western star on the Grammys, I think: Bum Phillips never wore his cowboy hat in a dome. #NFL #HoustonOilers

Read the interview with #NotreDame hoops star Skylar Diggins in today’s NYT. You’ll love her. http://nyti.ms/A6E1bG #Irish

Monday

That’s two half-court shots that have gone in against the #Caps in the last five days. What is this, the Harlem Globetrotters? #NHL

I honestly think, after this season, Dale Hunter is going to have a strong urge to jump on a tractor and ride off into the sunset. #Caps

R.I.P., Freddie Solomon. Little-known fact: 9 of his first 10 NFL TDs measured 50+ yards (58, 58, 50, 79, 53, 59, 90, 54, 58). #49ers #NFL

Solomon is also one of the handful of players who scored a TD 3 different ways in a game. Here’s the box. http://bit.ly/y9NSPh #49ers #NFL

Freddie accomplished the feat with his first team, the #Dolphins. Scored on a punt return (79 yds), reception (53) and end around (59). #NFL

In the same game, the #Bills‘ O.J. Simpson rushed for 203 yards. That got more attention than Freddie’s 3 TDs. #Dolphins #49ers #NFL

Another little-known Freddie Solomon fact: He played in eight postseason games and scored a TD in six of them. #49ers #NFL

My point is simply: For a guy who never played in the Pro Bowl, Solomon had a real impact on two #49ers championship teams (‘81,‘84). #NFL

One of those postseason TDs, by the way, came vs. the #Redskinsin the ‘83 NFC title game. A 76-yard bomb from Joe Montana.#49ers #NFL

Isn’t it great that people who get punched in the head for a living (e.g. Floyd Mayweather) get to spout off about Jeremy Lin? #NBA #Knicks

I can hardly wait to hear what Floyd has to say about the Kellogg-Briand Pact. #NBA #Knicks

When was the last time the #Caps got goals from three different defensemen? The Hatcher-Iafrate-Johansson-Cote years?

#Sharks 5, #Caps 3. If you listen closely, you can almost hear George McPhee backing up the truck. #NHL

Wednesday

Reading Kolzig’s “rock star” comment about Ovechkin makes me cringe. Keith Richard on skates? #Caps #NHL

If Olie is indeed right about Ovie, chalk up another one for La Dolce Vita Americana. #Caps #NHL #Ovechkin

Number of the Day: $67 million. That’s reportedly how much cap space the #Bucs have, now that Albert Haynesworth is gone. #NFL

Things that cost $67 million: 1. Nene’s 5-year contract with the #Nuggets. 2. The Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey aircraft. #Bucs #NFL

Just caught the last few rounds of Ali’s 9th pro fight on ESPN Classic. Vs. some nobody named Alex Miteff. Beautiful to behold. #boxing

The only downer: I was reminded we have a tape of Ali’s 9th pro fight (Oct. ‘61), but not one of Super Bowl I (Jan. ‘67). #NFL #boxing

Ali trivia question: Who was the last boxer he defeated? Answer coming up. #boxing

Answer: Ali’s last victory was over Leon Spinks in their Sept. ‘78 title rematch. A 15-round unanimous decision at the Superdome.  #boxing

At least 3 #TCU players arrested for dealing drugs. The happiest guy in the world right now has to be the #BigEast communications director.

I’m 100 percent behind Josh Hamilton’s “makeover,” I truly am. I just hope he doesn’t wind up looking like Joan Rivers. #Rangers #MLB

And to think the #Warriors and #Rockets both got rid of Jeremy Lin. Their faces must be crimson. #Harvard #Knicks #NBA

Celebrated No. 17s: John Havlicek, Doug Williams, Billy Kilmer, Harold Carmichael, Jeremy Lin. Who else? #Knicks #NBA #Redskins #NFL

A few other celebrated No. 17s: “Jefferson Street” Joe Gilliam, “Dandy Don” Meredith, Denny McLain. #Knicks #Redskins #NBA #NFL #MLB

Speaking of 17s, the #Redskins won Super Bowl 17, 27-17 over the #Dolphinshttp://bit.ly/z0IF0U #NFL

Report: “Measles outbreak [in Indiana] linked to #SuperBowl.” This sounds like a job for Dustin Hoffman and Cuba Gooding Jr. #NFL

Thursday

Any day now, there’ll be a report that Peyton Manning had ANOTHER undisclosed surgery — hereafter known as Peyton Manning Surgery. #NFL

It’s a delicate procedure that involves the switching of person’s right and left arms. #NFL

The biggest drawback is that it requires a quarterback to face away from the defense, making him more susceptible to sacks. #NFL

TNT’s guys told @ckpeay the #Wizards need “adult supervision.” Great. #Caps have George McPhee, Wiz need Nanny McPhee. http://bit.ly/xPfMGI

Here’s hoping ex-CFLer Jerome Messam, the 6-3, 245-lb RB signed by the #Dolphins, is the next Cookie Gilchrist. http://bit.ly/y7oDVd #NFL

Cookie went to CFL straight out of HS (after going to camp with #Browns in 1954 — at the age of 19). Rushed for 243 yds in game w/ #Bills.

Cookie was an incredible talent. Led AFL in rushing in 1962 (1,096 yards) AND booted 8 FGs/14 PATs. Try that sometime. #NFL #Dolphins #Bills

Here’s a classic game of Cookie’s from ‘62: 143 yards rushing, 2 TDs, 2 FGs, 2 PATs. Scored every #Bills point. http://bit.ly/fng23P #NFL

The #IFL sounds like a perfect fit for Randy Moss. After all, there’s no “I” in team, but there is one in “IFL.” #Vikings #Pats #NFL

Friday

LeBron could envision returning to #Cavs? Yeah, if global warming washes out Eastern seaboard and Cleveland becomes new Atlantic City. #NBA

#NFL should add a franchise, put it in L.A. + stock it with all these ex-stars looking to get back in league (Moss, T.O., Portis). #Redskins

#ESPN query: Will Randy Moss play professional football in 2012? The better question is: Did Moss play football professionally in 2010? #NFL

Dying to know what’s going on in the Peyton Manning deliberations. In fact, I’ve put out a few calls to some “4 finger circus clowns.”#NFL

Looks like for the second straight week, Jeremy #Lin is going to be #Harvard‘s #NBA Player of the Week. #Linsanity #Knicks
