I love Jordan Spieth. If you follow golf, you probably do, too.
If you don’t know who Jordan is, he’s the best thing to happen to golf since Tiger Woods first entered the scene. (And keep your judgments to yourself — he who casts the first stone and all that…)
Jordan became a professional golfer after only one year of college, but no one has ever disparaged his decision to leave school early or lack of education or poor example to our youth.
I think Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari sees the irony…don’t you?

Oh, how everyone loves to poke fun at the French.
How rude they are, how lazy, how smug!
But at Roland Garros, the French crowds overwhelmingly supported #1 Novak Djokovic in his quest for his first French Open title and career grand slam.
It may have been Novak’s 12th major title, but it was the first time he didn’t have to battle the crowd as well.
I for one am loving all things French today.

Happy Birthday, Kentucky!
Thank you for being my birthplace, home of the #BBN and the state where…
Peanut butter was invented!
That’s right – – right in Lexington in 1958.
There is a little tear in the corner of my eye…
I got up at 3:30am to watch the men’s singles final at the Australian Open.
Djokovic is playing; of course I did.
There’s a video that has been shown repeatedly throughout the tournament featuring a poem by a native Aussie and images of the continent.
It’s very high brow and thoughtful.
Wimbledon produces similar films which befit its formal air and traditions. But I would love it if the US Open would follow the same format but make them funny.
Same earnest delivery. Same chamber music. Heck, you could show the same type of beauty shots.
But have Tina Fey and Amy Poehler voice them and add their hilarious takes.
That would be poetry.

I am so over this hashtag and how people throw it around:
Really? Are you really feeling blessed to get a fancy toilet?
Just Iike some folks on Facebook are blessed to find a parking spot or blessed to go out to dinner or blessed to do anything.
In the words of Inigo Montoya, “I do not think this word means what you think it means.”
Don’t wear it out, people…especially not on a toilet.

The New York City Marathon is being run today…
…and broadcast for five hours on ABC7.
And people make fun of me for watching golf on television.

I was waiting to board my flight to Chicago last night when I heard a fellow passenger utter the familiar phrase:
I bleed blue.
I immediately knew a UK Wildcats fan was at the gate, so I walked over and inserted myself into the conversation. What were the chances?
And can you guess how long it took before we were discussing the UK/Duke game of 1992?
