NEWSMAKERS " WHO'S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK
Everyone, including Jack Nicklaus, keeps saying this British Open belongs to the 59-year-old for almost winning, except...
... Watson didn't win. Cink did, making what would ordinarily be a cool story of a guy winning his first major into a side note.
Like the fish in "Finding Nemo," it's time to wonder, "Now what?" Vick must sit and wait for Roger Goodell to hand down his ruling.
Welcome back to L.A., Mr. Beckham. Boos and signs calling him a fraud are not the way a soccer star wants to be greeted.
He finished 13th in a NASCAR Camping World West Series race over the weekend. Oh, and by the way, he's 81 years old.
TWT FIVE " MOON-SHOT HOMERS
In honor of the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, here's a look at some of the biggest moon-shot home runs in the past four decades:
1. Albert Pujols, 2005 NLCS - Had Pujols' blast off Brad Lidge not hit the train tracks above the left-field stands, it might be in the stratosphere right now.
2. Reggie Jackson, 1971 All-Star Game - He hit the light tower in right field at Tiger Stadium.
3. Mark McGwire, June 24, 1997 - The myth is that McGwire smacked Randy Johnson's pitch 538 feet at Kingdome.
4. Barry Bonds, 2002 World Series - With two outs in the ninth, Bonds crushed Troy Percival's pitch, leaving the Giants down by one.
5. Jose Canseco, 1989 ALCS - Perhaps with some outside assistance, he drilled the ball into the fifth deck at SkyDome.
