    The legendary coach passed Saturday at age 83. As much as Smith was known as the longtime coach at North Carolina, many knew little or nothing of his civil rights’ stands. An appreciation.

    One of the country’s few black sports columnists and an outstanding writer with a colorful personality to boot, Burwell passed Thursday morning from cancer. He was only 59.

Is that a golf ball in Phil Mickelson’s pants or is he just stoked to see Tiger gag, particularly after Woods was jumping up and down about being in the mix after Saturday’s round?

Hey, Some Of His Best Friends…

    Sergio Garcia wish some of you would just go away. Please. He would love for you to know that he’s not like some of those racist European soccer hooligans who foam at the mouth with venom and scream shit the moment they wake. Nah, ain’t like that bro.
    Of course then Sergio gets a little help from his friends. In this case, it’s George O’Grady, chief of the European Tour.
