  • Tee Time: How well do you know...

    By Dennis George

    Figures lie.
    Liars figure.
    That’s an old saying that I’ve used many times when people have spouted out numbers that I wasn’t sure that I could agree with.
    And just as many professional and collegiate teams use statistics to plot which player to foul in certain situations or ask, is now the time for a hit and run, golfers too should be able check out their numbers.

    We should.

  • Woods and Waers: When fishing,...

    Now I’ll admit that I’m the type of viewer the sponsors want to appeal to. First, I love to fish. And secondly, I’m inclined to … or used to be … buy anything I see somebody else catch a bass on!
    What I ended up with was box after box of lures that, even though they worked for the pros, didn’t work for me.

    By Larry Vaught

    In four years with the Green Bay Packers, Randall Cobb  has had 335 receptions for 4,214 yards and 33 touchdowns. Cobb also has a 108-yard kickoff return for the Packers.
    The former University of Kentucky star signed a four-year, $40 million contract to stay with the Packers before the 2015 season. Yet you might be surprised to know that his mother, Tina Cobb, still thinks it was more exciting to watch him play when he was at UK than it is in the NBA.
