Long live the King

 

golf_e_arnold_576

For a 40-year-old to write about the influence of Arnold Palmer on the game of golf seems a bit odd, but if you are a golf fan it makes perfect sense. Tonight we lost the legend, the great one, the leader of Arnie’s Army, to put it plainly we lost the King. Arnold brought the game of golf to the public in a way that everyone who has followed in his footsteps can only thank him for. He was a man of the people and a public favorite. When he and Jack were going head-to-head, people marveled at Jack’s talent but LOVED Arnie. I don’t have many memories of Arnie winning majors but I can tell you one memory I have of him.

RIP Jose Fernandez

I’m not going to pretend to have the words to write about the young life of a man I only knew from what I saw on the field and read online. He was a kid who risked it all to do what he loves for a better life for his family, and seemingly enjoyed every minute of it as evidenced by his infectious smile.

Wayniac Nation is terribly saddened by Fernandez’s passing and we wish our condolences to every life he touched.

NFL RUNDOWN WITH SBJ: I’M GLAD YOU BLEW YOUR COVER

Yeah. That’s right. I emotionally hedged the BEARS -3. What of it?

Look, I’m not an Eagles fan anymore. I’ve retired from that franchise for personal reasons, and I will expand on that exodus in a future post. But if you think I don’t want them to do well after my fandom departure, you are mistaken. I wish them the best. I love you guys. It’s just wasn’t in the cards for me to remain with Gang Green. I have a destiny to catch. Giddy up.

2016 Prospect Breakout Series: The Tampa Bay Rays Willy Adames

It’s hard to call a team’s top offensive prospect a breakout candidate, but that is precisely what Willy Adames did this past summer. While playing his first full season above A-Ball, Adames showed that the potential many saw in him was reality, as he had a career-year across the board.

2016 Prospect Breakout Series: Pittsburgh Pirates Kevin Newman

Kevin Newman entered 2016 with several question marks surrounding him. Would one of the best collegiate bats in the 2015 MLB Draft translate to professional pitching after an up-and-down debut? Would he be able to stick at shortstop? Just how high on the Pirates’ prospect — and overall prospect — lists was he?

This season answered many of those questions, as Newman skyrocketed to top-five status in the Pirates’ system, while sitting on the cusp of the top-50 overall.

So, who is Kevin Newman?

The Rome Braves Devan Watts has breakout 2016

The Rome Braves’ huge second half surge led them to their first South Atlantic League title in 13 years. The achievements of their heralded young pitching staff and the tremendous second half Austin Riley had with the bat have been well documented over the past few months. While Ray-Patrick Didder and Patrick Weigel made some waves as two of the Atlanta Braves’ breakout prospects, closer Devan Watts quietly slid under the radar and played a huge role in Rome’s SAL Championship.

FanDuel Fee – Your Week 3 DFS winning starts

So I missed the Thursday night game again.  No worries, FanDuel has now listed it’s main slate as Sunday only games.  I’m hoping that at some point this season, I’ll get to this prior to a Thursday night, but I’m not counting on it.

It also looks like I’m only going to get to Cash Plays this week.  I’ll try and update this with Tourney plays before Sunday, but don’t hold your breath.

Take a look at FanDuel Fee’s top picks for Week 3.

NFL Discussion: Who’s the best of the best?

Ahhh, it’s Week 3 of the NFL. Key players are beginning to get injured, while others are preparing to come back to help their team. Seems like the perfect time to initiate an absurdly early undefeated teams discussion, doesn’t it?

There are currently eight undefeated teams in the NFL, and by the time the majority of people read this, there will likely be seven, barring a tie in the New England Patriots and Houston Texans Thursday Night dandy. So, the question is, do any of them have a chance to go undefeated?
