    It pains me to say be discussing postseason baseball at all since my Cubbies decided to have a lackluster year and not make the playoffs, but with the sheer strength of the field in this years playoffs I have a feeling I'll still have a lot of fun watching from the sidelines. With four 100-win teams in the playoffs and no runaway odds-on-favorite, it's going to be fun baseball for die-hard and casual fans alike to watch.

    The Dodgers, Yankees, Twins, and Astros all finished the regular season with over 100 wins and all have a legitimate chance to win it all this year. Vegas is giving the Astros the slightest of advantages in taking it all while not surprisingly giving the Dodgers the best chance to win the NL Pennant and almost as good of odds as the Astros as winning it all.

    It goes without saying that the Dodgers are the clear favorite to win the NL Pennant, but crazier things have happened before and I wouldn't be surprised in the least if the Cardinals or Braves, two storied teams in their own right, take the pennant away from them.

    However, the AL will be far more interesting with two 100-win teams playing against each other in the Division Series, which is just crazy. That series between the Twins and Yankees alone will be one of the most exciting to watch in the entire playoffs. And while there is always a chance that Houston can get knocked out in the ALDS, I have a feeling they will easily make the ALCS and we'll have yet another awesome series to watch between two powerhouse teams.

    Needless to say, this years playoffs are sure to bring a whole bunch of fireworks that will even get this die hard Cubs fan to tune into.

    What a great story! At first I thought I read that Serena was bested and was shocked, but then I realized it was Venus who lost. That's not to diminish Gauff's win, but it would have been a truly historic defeat if she beat the other Williams sister.

    I still can't wrap my head around this race and the ensuing aftermath.

    On one hand, I can't help but agree with the racing stewards decision to disqualify Maximum Security for interference. The interference was pretty clear and there could have been a potentially catastrophic pile up that would have wiped out half the field if it weren't for the quick thinking by jockey Tyler Gaffalione.

    On the other hand, it really sucks to see three faceless stewards decide the victor of the biggest horse race of the year.

    Dallasite Wrote: Where does Tiger go from here? Do you think this was a one-off or is Tiger, the Tiger of old, back and in full force?

    I honestly don't care if it's a one-off or not because I never thought I'd witness him winning another major ever again, let alone The Masters tournament!

    But I do have a strong feeling that we haven't seen the last of Tiger yet. He looked like his "old self" all weekend and especially so during the final round. It might be time to bring back the discussion that we dropped years ago - can he win three more major's to tie Jack Nicklaus or four to claim the most outright? After this weekend, I think we just might have to.

    All I can say is...that was awesome!

    I've been a Tiger fan since I was a young kid. It's so great to see him win a big tournament again, and even more so with it being The Masters.

    It's so awesome seeing him play this well after so many years of trials and tribulations. I hope he's able to keep it up reclaim his green jacket yet again.

    My dad is more of a casual NASCAR ran, but he always made sure to catch the Daytona 500 every year. Some of my earliest memories are of watching the race with him.

    The race that is forever etched in my memory is the 2001 Daytona 500 that Dale Earnhardt died in. It's one of those things that never leaves your memory if you watched it live.

    Thanks for sharing the link to be able to watch recent races. I'm looking forward to re-watching a bunch of them.

    Bud Light definitely outdid themselves this time by teaming up with HBO to promote the final season of Game of Thrones. They got a few "Dilly Dilly's" in there, but this 90 second commercial was a heck of a lot more than that. A jousting match turned into something far scarier after The Bud Knight defeated a mysterious opponent in a jousting match only to find out that the opponent was actually The Mountain from Game of Thrones. Needless to say, The Mountain got the final word.

    He coached them to a Super Bowl win and 9/13 years into the playoffs. You could argue that was mostly because of Rodgers and maybe even in spite of the coach.. but I think that's unfair. If you are going to blame him for the bad times, you have to credit him for his part when times were great.

    Yea, it just seems so disrespectful to me. It would be one thing if the Packers went five straight years with a losing record and management got fed up with it, but not with the record he's earned throughout the years.
