This weekend a NFL Combine prospect had one of the most embarrassing job interviews of all time that you don’t want to see.
'Leap' into The Daily Report,
The Last Night’s Game Team
PGA (Professional Golfers' Association)
- Belly be gone. Adam Scott won the Honda Classic yesterday. Scott’s win is significant because this is his first win since the PGA banned belly putters. The PGA claimed the belly putter gave the golfers who used them an unfair advantage.
- No pants dance. Golfer Gary Woodland's tee shot landed near the water. As opposed to getting his white pants dirty, he stripped down to his skivvies for the shot. Four!
NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing)
- Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Jimmie Johnson, driver of the #48 car, won the second race of the NASCAR season in Atlanta. This was more than just another victory; it tied him with legendary driver Dale Earnhardt with 76 career wins.
NFL (National Football League)
In NFL Combine news:
- Bet is off. Remember when Adidas offered $1 million to any prospect who could beat 40-yard dash record of 4.24 seconds while wearing Adidas shoes? Surprise, surprise, Adidas holds on to their $1 million. (For the record, no one broke that time while not wearing Adidas either).
- Wardrobe malfunction. During the job interview of a lifetime (the Combine), Mississippi State lineman Chris Jones left it all out there on the field. Jones ran the 40-yard dash and then at the end his pants fell off. He flashed everyone and then he fell down. Ego (and more) bruised.
UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship)
- Down but not out. Michael Bisping beat Anderson Silva with a unanimous decision on Saturday night. (Unanimous decision is when the three judges score the fight for the same winner). In a bizarre turn of events, during the fight Bisping’s mouthpiece fell out. The ref can stop the fight and return the mouthpiece. Bisping thought that was happening. Well guess again. He received a knee that knocked him out but not out of the fight. Bisping came back to win.
- New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes signed a huge contract in the off-season. It appears he is spending that money on variety of vehicles. Cespedes showed up to Mets spring training in a different car each day last week. Some of the cars included a Lamborghini (that’s been customized to shoot flames out of the tailpipe) and an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (valued at an estimated $250,000). According to Mets beat writer, Anthony DiComo, Cespedes said he rode a bike in Cuba and walked. "After I got here I saw the possibilities that I can have I want, so I worked hard for it." He sure did. Check out the car show here.
- Saturday night’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors was a classic. Warriors beat the Thunder in overtime. Warriors’ Stephen Curry broke his own record of three-point shots made in a season and scored the game winning shot from 38 feet away (essentially half court).
- What the heck is a belly putter? A belly putter has a longer than normal shaft/handle allowing the golfer to anchor the club against his belly (hence the name belly putter). These putters give the golfers an advantage because they allow the golfer to stabilize their wrists during the putt.
