It was only a matter of time before the NHL Players Association released a statement on the league s decision to forgo the 2018 Winter Olympics. Considering their hopes for Olympic participation in the past, the statement wasn t likely going to be a positive one.
But oh boy is it a doozy.
It s not an end to a friendship. I don t look upon death as a tragedy. It s a time to rejoice because you re going to a better place. I said last week, Make sure you got a good course up there. Make sure it s good conditions. Jack and I will be there. We re not in a hurry to tee off but be the head pro in the meantime.
What s the biggest difference at the Masters between your win in 1978 and today?
Well, the biggest difference is the prize money. You think about it I won three times. Placed second three times. Top 10 14 times. Most number of cuts Fred Couples and I had the most number of cuts in a row. Most number of times in the tournament. And I don t know if I won $300,000. I mean, my three victories alone were 20-20-40, OK, that s $80,000. Now it s $1.5 or 6 million or something. So the prize money is the biggest difference.
The Texans are as close to having a Super Bowl roster as any team but are missing the one piece that can make them feel truly comfortable about their chances. Sure, Bill O Brien says the team is excited to have Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden, but it s hard to imagine Houston is going to be OK with the pair and not want to add at least one more player who can compete for a starting role.
There s still a few veterans who could fit the bill if the Texans don t address the position early in the draft Cheap Kids NHL Jerseys *cough cough* Tony Romo Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys but the Texans could certainly pull the trigger on a passer if one they like is on the board at No. 25 overall.
