(Torrey Pines, CA) – Tiger Woods has made a career of doing the incredible – and making it look easy. Yesterday, he won the U.S. Open, his third, after a 19-hole playoff. That, alone, was not incredible. Afterall, everyone knows Tiger is a fierce competitor. What is incredible is that he was able to do this in his first tournament – indeed his first few rounds of golf – since knee surgery just weeks ago. As Tiger winced and limped around the course, his performance was reminiscent of Willis Reed for the New York Knicks many years ago.
But the doctors who performed Tiger’s knee surgery have admitted that maybe he doesn’t deserve all of the credit. Read more

(Elmont, NY) – The Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the throroughbred Triple Crown following the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, is held annually in Elmont, New York.

Fortunately for organizers of the race, taking place June 7th this year, the horse Big Brown won the Derby and then also the Preakness. Instantly, the event was transformed into “the Belmont Stakes” from “that horsey race that nobody gives a shit about.”
