This was the tweet that 21-year-old Jordan Spieth sent out just hours after winning the 79th Masters. Actually, “winning” just doesn’t encapsulate exactly what Spieth did this weekend at Augusta National.
Spieth led wire-to-wire, set a new 36-hole scoring record for the most storied golf course in the United States, hit the most birdies in tournament history, and tied an all-time Masters scoring record. So, yeah, “winning” doesn’t quite cut it.
What he did win or earn was America’s attention.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 21-year-old Spieth is finding success this early in his career. He’s got a near-flawless technique, he’s incredibly intelligent, he’s strong between the ears, and he has a respect for the game that extends far beyond his years.
Of course, comparisons are already being made to Tiger Woods, especially since Spieth is the youngest player to win the Masters since…well, Tiger in 1997. Read the rest of this entry »

On April 20th, Nashville rockers Turbo Fruits are set to release their fourth studio album, “No Control”. This album is a bit more toned down from some of their previous releases, but it’s far from mellow.

In a happy and well deserved twist, Loyola will be dedicating the new tennis center to the man who has been at the helm of the tennis program since 1979, and has earned over 700 wins during his tenure, Rick McClure.
The McClure Tennis Center is a stunning eight-court, lighted facility on the grounds of Ridley Athletic Complex. This new complex is only possible thanks to a generous, anonymous $3.2-million donation.
An opening reception will take place at 11:30am, and the dedication ceremony itself will start at 12:30pm. After the festivities end, the Hounds will play their first matches ever in the new complex when they play host to Bucknell.
All who attend are welcome to join McClure and the players in a post-match reception in the Class of 1968 Suite at Ridley.

O’s fans will shake off the pain of how last season ended, and proudly welcome the birds back to Baltimore on Friday when Bud Norris will take the mound against Mark Buehrle. Read the rest of this entry »

The stage is set. It’s next stop: Indianapolis for Kentucky, Wisconsin, Duke, and Michigan State.
While these may be the Final Four teams, the true Final Four consists of four men who have proven themselves to be experts of their coaching craft for years. These greats are John Calipari, Bo Ryan, Mike Krzyzewski, and Tom Izzo.
Four men that have ascended to the top of college basketball, all using completely different styles, and all taking very different paths to get to this year’s Final Four.
