It almost feels like golf is just a sideshow at the U.S. Open, what with the civil war raging inside the sport. But I will nevertheless suspend disbelief, plop down on the couch, pop open a cold one and get deep into what has always been my favorite golf tournament. I’m picking Collin Morikawa. Or maybe Billy Horschel. Or…
Safeties have not always “gotten paid” in the NFL. They do now. The Steelers now have Minkah Fitzpatrick locked up for the next five years. Fitz will make $18.3 million per year and received $36 million up front. If you think that is the biggest haul for a safety in league history, you are correct.

Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder has announced he will not testify at a Congressional hearing later this month because he’ll be “out of the country.”

It’s a legitimate question to ask whether this should be a Congressional matter. But there is no doubt the Commanders are the NFL’s pariah.
And speaking of cesspools, take a dip in the WWE. Damn, Vince McMahon, if that hush money stuff is true, it doesn’t look good.
Another night, another near no-no in MLB. This time it was the Dodgers’ Tyler Anderson who got all the way to the ninth before the Angels’ Shohei Ohtani ruined the party with a one-out triple. Anderson still got the win.
But the Astros? They weren’t only clean, they were immaculate. Twice. Houston starter Luis Garcia struck out the side on nine pitches in the second, then reliever Phil Maton did the same thing—to the same three batters—in the seventh. You can’t recall two previous immaculate innings in the same game in MLB history? That’s because it had never happened before. Perhaps this feat warrants an asterisk, since it was accomplished against the Texas Rangers.
