Did you see John Daly hit a tee shot off a beer can during the Buick Open pro-am last week? Boy, that’s a bad combination - drinking and driving.

Actually, the can belonged to his playing partner, Kid Rock. Turns out they’re good friends. Kid has given Daly guidance in his singing career and Daly has given Kid help with his golf game … for all the good it’s done.

You’ve gotta love John. He gives new meaning to the term “six-pack abs.”

Neal from Gaithersburg e-mails: “On [Friday night’s] Orioles-Nationals game, the boobs in the booth are talking about how the O’s are looking for a shortstop. Bob Carpenter says, ‘I don’t suppose Mark Belanger has any eligibility left.’

“Well, no, Bob, considering Belanger is dead.”

The more I think about it, being dead probably wouldn’t be that big a drawback - not the way the Orioles’ shortstops have been playing the position.
