The Social: Good returns, bad ideas

first_imgThe fallout from Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest gets all kinds of reaction from both sides, Jason Dufner poses with his newest trophy (and girlfriend) and a Paige Spiranac trick shot goes oh-so wrong for her volunteer. All that and more in this edition of The Social. Tiger Woods dominated the golf news cycle last week after getting busted for DUI near his home in Jupiter, Fla. By now, you know the details, have seen the videos and digested the takes. Oh the takes. Some copy editor has been waiting patiently their whole career for this exact Tiger Woods moment, so they could write this headline… pic.twitter.com/U1rAtYPswz— Name cannot be blank (@Burgerboxx) May 30, 2017 But perhaps the most telling opinions came from Tiger’s peers. Much like the average fan, they idolized this guy, he inspired them, and they just want to see him get batter and back on the golf course. Hey @TigerWoods, all of us who grew up watching you still love you. Everyone messes up. No one is perfect and we are still pulling for you.— John Peterson (@JohnPetersonPGA) June 2, 2017 Hard to argue that having a mentally and physically healthy Woods back on the course wouldn’t be best for everyone. What a story of redemption it would be. Once upon a time (four years ago), Jason Dufner was one of golf’s dullest stars, and we mean that in the most complimentary way. He was fresh off a major win, part of golf’s “IT” couple and using his wide-range of emotions to star in hilarious Funny or Die videos. Over the weekend he got some of that mojo back, looking very much like his old self, with a Memorial trophy in hand, a new girl on his arm and even something resembling a smile on his face. So who is this mystery women? Well, they once attended a Cleveland Cavaliers game together and according to CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz, her name is Jessica and … that’s all we know. So since our investigation has hit a roadblock, now seems like as good a time as any to look back on some of Duf Daddy’s finest moments, like, Vacation Duf. (Click here for more photos) Ever find yourself tossing and turning at night wondering what ever happened to that adorable dog Dufner used to parent. Yeah, he’s still living a pretty decent life. Adam Scott has politely asked the USGA to lighten up when it comes to setting up Erin Hills for next week’s U.S Open, saying “maybe it’s time to do away with the even-par target.” While the USGA hasn’t verbally responded, some recent photos and videos that have surfaced speak volumes. Holy wow! Here’s your @usopengolf previewpic.twitter.com/VDLUdYiF4o— Wesley Bryan (@wesleybryangolf) May 30, 2017 Yeah, 2-feet tall rough, nearly 700-yard holes. Good luck with that, guys. Maybe Phil Mickleson has the best strategy after all. Smoothest dude in the game. Try not to watch that more than once. You can’t. This just in. The President of the United States likes to play golf, a lot. And he’s not big on getting after it alone. In his short time in office, Donald Trump has played with the likes of Ernie Els, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, and over the weekend, he added two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Peyton Manning to the list of partners. You’re not going to believe this, but people were not happy. And then other people were not happy that those people weren’t happy. And all of these people met up at this awful place called Twitter to air their grievances. Here’s a sampling: Peyton Manning golfed with President Trump today and Dems are losing their minds.Another GREAT day in America#SundayFunday— Collin Rugg (@CollinRugg) June 4, 2017 Just a reminder that this won’t end until somebody pins Frank Costanza. Your semi-weekly reminder to not volunteer to be a tee, even for a professional golfer. Paige Spiranac teamed up with Barstool Sports and attempted a trick shot off of Barstool Trent’s backside. From the looks of the “after” photo, we’re guessing things didn’t go exactly as planned: This same guy volunteered his face for Spiranac last year, so all things considered, things could be worse, much worse. Genius! Sabatoge your best chance to win an event in over three years so that you can get more face time on TV, because contending and winning wouldn’t have done that. Our readers are onto you, Paula. On. To. You.last_img read more

Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ National playoffs start on July 27

first_img… Seating accommodation being made for fansIT’S a fact that the street football phenomenon, known as the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ competition, is the most anticipated event in the shorter version of the sport, and the 9th Edition is shaping up to provide a wonderful experience for the fans.The Guinness brand under Manager Lee Baptiste has every intention to make this year’s national playoffs as inclusive as possible and all the stops are being pulled out to ensure that the tournament’s legacy is enhanced and made secure.Organiser Banks DIH has attempted every year since the tournament’s inauguration to improve some aspect of the experience for the fans and players and this year’s national playoffs will be bigger and better.Last year saw the introduction of colourful uniforms and balls in keeping with the new trend seen internationally and, apart from a duplication of that effort, the organisers are planning to make seating accommodation available for fans so that more persons could share the wonderful experience of witnessing the games.Teams have begun to intensify preparations and as usual the quality on display over the three nights is nothing short of fantastic.With the Bartica Zone just concluded and its representatives decided, players now have the opportunity to showcase the talent of that community against the more established communities of Georgetown, East Coast, Linden and West Demerara and the early whispers are that the newcomers will adequately acquit themselves, judging from the performance of zone winner Disconnection Crew who have a few Brazilians in their lineup.They will definitely want to prove something against the opposition and vindicate their presence in the tournament.Linden’s Dave & Celena All Stars who became the first team outside of Georgetown to win the national Guinness will no doubt be aiming to prove that last year’s performance was no fluke, while the Georgetown entries will be looking to reclaim lost glory.Then there are the dark horses from the other communities who are yet to stamp their authority in the big tournament; but just as the reigning champions showed, the gap is closing among all the teams.This year could prove to be a blockbuster extravaganza and one that fans will truly enjoy.At this point it is anyone’s guess what will be the outcome of this tournament with all the teams raring and ready to rumble.The tournament opens on July 27, at Pouderoyen tarmac, West Demerara and then moves to Haslington tarmac, East Coast Demerara on July 1, before the final showdown set for July 4, at the Guyana National Stadium.The teams that have qualified are listed below:Georgetown: Gold is Money (champions), Sparta Boss, Leopold Street and Bent Street.East Coast: Uprising (champions), Paradise, Melanie-B and Buxton Diamond.West Demerara: Showstoppers (champions), ESPN and West Side BallersLinden: Silver Bullets (champions), Dave and Celina’s All-Stars (National champions) and Swag Entertainment.Berbice: Trafalgar (champions)Bartica: Disconnection Crew (champions)last_img read more

Cisse set to eclipse Yeboah’s record

first_imgAnthony Yeboah’s long standing Bundesliga record for the most goals scored by an African player could be eclipsed by Senegal’s Papiss Demba Cisse on Sunday.The Freiburg striker will take his season’s tally to 21 if he scores against Borrusia Dortmund on Sunday and eclipse Yeboah’s tally of 20 set in the 1993/94 season during his time with Eintracht Frankfurt.He is also eyeing the top scorer’s award in Germany which Yeboah shared with other strikers twice.Cisse says he is delighted that he is now tied with Yeboah for the most goals scored by an African but wants more.“I didn’t know I had equalled Yeboah’s record and was only told on the evening of the match,” Cisse told BBC blogger Piers Edwards.“I was very happy but with five matches left, I still want to achieve more.” Source; Kickoff.comlast_img read more
