The Toronto Argonauts (CFL – Canadian Football League) signed a new player and he’s drumming up a lot of attention. Not only because of his play on the field, but because his nickname is Poop.

This could be the most controversial topic since Laurel and Yanny. Golfer Matt Kuchar decided to enter a tournament last minute and his regular caddie was unable to make it. Kuchar hired a caddie from the local course in Mexico with an agreement that he would make $3,000. Kuchar ended up winning the tournament and nearly $1.3 million in prize money. He tipped his caddie $5,000. PGA (Professional Golfers Association) Tour caddies make 10% of the golfer's earnings and while many have said he didn’t do all the work the regular caddies typically do to warrant 10%, that he should’ve tipped him a bit more. DID HE GET THE SHAFT?
