John Daly apologizes for nothing, so if you don't like his latest venture into the country music genre, we can only assume he'll tell you where to put that opinion. Athletes branching into the music industry is usually a formula for disaster, and Daly doing anything at all is also a formula for disaster, and yet, this isn't bad at all. We're going to spend the rest of the day trying to figure out what this means.

Michael Jordan was one of Roger Federer's idols as a boy, so last night at the U.S. Open was probably a thrill for the Swiss tennis star. Not only did he cruise to a first round win in front of Jordan, but he also debuted the sneaker they collaborated on.

We'll never grow tired of manager tirades on the baseball field, so we have to thank Tommy Thompson of Class A Winston-Salem for this beauty, which featured him placing his shoes on home plate and then masterfully tossing his helmet into the stands.
