    I know this years Super Bowl was less than memorable...but no comments at all.....????

    I was hoping the Rams would win.However what played out has happened with many sporting codes over the years, when an exciting talented team lacked the experience for the big occasion.

    I'm just glad that the lucky cheating (on the Saint's infamous no call) Rams didn't win.:);)

    Had anyone seen the new American football league yet (AAF)? I've seen a few games on t.v. and it's not too bad. I don't know how this league will compete as the new XFL will be arriving next year as well. The games like the AAF will be played right after the Super Bowl. I know Houston and Dallas will have an XFL teams but no nick names yet. :)

    I agree it's not too bad...but it's not good either. Just mediocre. The NFL is enough for me and I hardly watch that.

    Tiger Woods wins his fifth Green Jacket symbolic of winning The Masters at Augusta.

    Tiger Woods earned his first major victory in more than a decade, winning the Masters for the fifth time in his storied career.

    Woods, who last won at Augusta National Golf Club in 2005, became only the second player to win the Masters five times. It marks his second professional win since returning from a career-threatening back injury in late 2017.

    The roar was back at Augusta on Sunday after Woods put on a performance reminiscent of his glory days from the early 2000s to outlast several contenders who made pushes up the leaderboard over the final nine holes of the tournament.

    A teary-eyed Woods celebrated with his family and friends immediately after his final putt, hugging his 10-year-old son, Charlie, who was born after his last major win during the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in 2008. He then walked to the clubhouse amid cheers and chants of Tiger, Tiger, Tiger!

    “It's overwhelming, just because of what has transpired,” Woods said. “Last year I was lucky to be playing again. At the previous year's dinner, I was really struggling. I missed a couple of years not playing this great tournament. To now be the champion 22 years between wins is a long time. It's unreal to experience this.”

    Woods finished the tournament at 13 under after posting a two-under-par 70 in the final round. He finished ahead of Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka, who finished tied for second at 12 under for the tournament.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think none of the other ten players placed below him was his competitor two decades ago. One factoid: His first Major win came one year before Viagra.

    Lewis Hamilton won his SIXTH Chinese Grand Prix yesterday in Shanghai. The Englishman took first place to his Mercedes teammate, Bottas, in the initial meters. And he clung to that position until the end of the race. Lewis Hamilton believes Mercedes will have to operate with maximum effort to maintain a competitive edge in their fight with Ferrari this season – but he expects greater performance advances from his team.

    Lewis Hamilton took a comfortable victory in the Chinese Grand Prix to hold the championship lead for the first time in 2019.

    The Mercedes driver passed team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who started from pole position, off the line and controlled Formula 1's 1,000th race from there.

    Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel took third, after the team ordered team-mate Charles Leclerc to let him by in the opening laps.

    The decision led to Leclerc losing fourth place to Max Verstappen's Red Bull.

    It was Hamilton's 75th career victory, and it came on a weekend on which he had struggled throughout practice but pulled a lap out of the bag to grab a front-row spot, which proved the foundation for his win.

    We need the fatherly voice of James Earl Jones exhorting, "Son, practice makes perfect!".
