Friends, The winner of the 2018 US Open for golf this year was Shinnecock Hills.  Yes, Brooks Koepka took home the trophy for the second straight year – which is amazing and rare – but the course really was the overall winner, proving tougher than even many of the greatest players in the world could […]

Friends, What a sports weekend….  C-A-P-S, Caps, Caps, Caps.  As you know, I am a Detroit guy but kudos to my second hometown who won their first Stanley Cup ever on Thursday and it was a thrilling ride for DC.  The WaPo has the Day-In-The-Life and the Caps after-party details with Cup.  And the party […]

Friends, Well it was rainy, but the Preakness was about as exciting a race as we’ve seen that had a 2/5 favorite. The sloppy track made for a real mess on the infield, but Justify ran through it, taking early pressure from Derby runner-up Good Magic and then holding off the late-charging Bravazo.  And for […]

Friends, Well, it seemed Scott Pruitt was getting a rough ride last Thursday on Capitol Hill but the White House Correspondents Dinner speaker Michelle Wolf may have underperformed him Saturday. Apparently, many didn’t particularly like a number of her jokes and her coverage was worse that NRDC’s coverage of Pruitt.  I am sad I missed […]

Friends, I launch today on the 18th anniversary of one of SNL’s best sketches EVER: Christopher Walken and “More Cowbell.” I’ve got fever… and the prescription is… What an end to the Masters as Patrick Reed held off the charging Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth to win his first Major. Reed, often seen as one […]
