Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports sunday.......... 13) If the PGA Tour makes a highlight film of the first two months of this season, they better title it "Choking Dogs" because thats what players in the lead have done on Sundays all this month. Sunday was Robert Allenby who gagged away a winner's paycheck, double-bogeying 18 when he had a two-stroke lead. Allenby had earned over $26M in his career, but he hasn't won a tournament on the PGA Tour in 11 years. 12) Allenby did an interview on Golf Channel before the playoff, which is unusual, then he signed autographs. How about hitting balls on the range? He seems like a great guy, but if you had him in a pool Sunday, chances are you'd like to smack him in the head right about now. 11) Robert Griffin III ran 4.41 40-yard dash at the Combine, Andrew Luck ran a 4.66, Kellen Moore ran a 4.94, none of which means a hill of beans when it comes to being an NFL quarterback. Anyone remember what a guy named Tom Brady ran in his 40-yard dash at the Combine? Try 5.23. 10) Craig Robinson is now 55-62 in four years at Oregon State, as Beavers have now lost five games in a row in another late-season swoon. If you're the AD at Oregon State, are you happy with Robinson, and if you're not, how do you go about firing the President's brother-in-law? I mean, the Pac-12 stinks this year, and in a year Oregon State was hyped to be improved, they're 5-11 in league play. Thats not progress. 9) If you like the Red Sox, there's a lot of good spring training coverage on the NESN channel, with a two-hour show live on Sunday mornings. Think they have a show on at 6pm weeknights. 8) Speaking of Boston, any Red Sox fan who has one ill word to say about Terry Francona is an ungrateful nitwit who chooses to forget what a joke the team was before Francona took over and won two world titles. Bobby Valentine will micro-manage and ban chicken in the clubhouse and let everyone know how smart he is, but he ain't won anything, except one NL title with the Mets; Francona owns two World Series rings. 7) NBA All-Star Game was 88-69 at the half, which means I didn't miss a damn thing by not watching. Just once, some billionaire should put up a huge sum of money and say winner takes all, and see how hard these guys play. Its insulting that they don't even try to play defense until the fourth quarter. Baseball is still the sport best-suited for All-Star play- its an individual sport. 6) Speaking of the NBA, how do they hold a 3-point shooting contest and not have Steve Novak in it? Kyle Korver? Steve Nash? How do they have a dunking contest without JaVale McGee? 5) I say this a lot, but its true; a 64-man 1-on-1 tournament over All-Star weekend would be very big. Two guys from each team, other four guys chosen from Internet vote. Who wouldn't watch this? 4) The 1949 Motor City Open had an 11-hole playoff, the longest playoff in PGA Tour history; Sunday's playoff at Mayakoba tied for 2nd all-time longest playoff, at eight holes. 3) If you like wagering on politics, Democrats are -$220 in the Presidential election in November; Republicans are +$200. 2) Greedy bastard update: At corner near my house, the price at the cruddy Mobil station is $3.95 a gallon; less than a mile away, at another cruddy Mobil station, it is $4.05. Can't wait to see what the price goes to when the weather gets better around the country. 1) Conference tournaments start this week; there are three in Las Vegas, one in Atlantic City, one in Hot Springs, AR, which apparently means it is fun to visit Hot Springs. Never been to Arkansas myself.
