NASCAR goes for a Gotham
theme on Sunday, June 19th when the drivers of the
Nextel Cup Series take to the track at Michigan International
Speedway in the Batman Begins 400.
Last weekend, Carl Edwards won
in a green-white-checker finish, holding off Brian
Vickers to take the Pocono 500 at Pocono Raceway in
Long Pond, Pennsylvania. Joe Nemechek, Kyle Bush,
and Michael Waltrip rounded out the top five. Jimmie
Johnson, Mark Martin, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon,
and Jamie McMurray made up the rest of the top 10.
The win moved Edwards up five
places in the drivers standings to fourth, behind
Johnson, Greg Biffle, and Elliott Sadler. Martin,
Ryan Newman, Harvick, Rusty Wallace, Gordon, Tony
Stewart, Kurt Busch, and McMurray are the rest of
the current contenders for the Chase for the Nextel
Biffle and Newman won at Michigan
International Speedway in 2004, while Newman and Kurt
Busch picked up victories on the track in 2003. Gordon,
Martin, Wallace, Dale Jarrett, and Bobby Labonte each
have multiple Michigan wins in their career.
On Sunday, June 26th, the drivers
of NASCAR head to Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California
for the Dodge/Save Mart 350.

|The US Open at Pinehurst
States Golf Association, Golf House, Far Hills, NJ
105 United States Open Championship
Pinehurst Resort & Country Club, Village of Pinehurst,
PAR AND YARDAGE – Pinehurst’s
No. 2 Course is set up at 7,214 yards and plays to
a par of 35-35—70.
ARCHITECT – All 18 holes of
this Donald Ross masterpiece were opened in 1907 at
5,870 yards. The first nine holes were completed in
1901. Ross would fine-tune the layout several times
through 1946. More recently, Rees Jones did renovations
prior to the 1999 U.S. Open there. In 2004, bunkering
was repaired and the course was lengthened by about
U.S. OPEN PHILOSOPHY– The
USGA intends to make the U.S. Open the most rigorous,
yet fair, examination of golf skills, testing all
forms of shot-making. The USGA prepares the course
after careful consideration of 14 different factors.
The complete philosophy statement can be found on
DISTANCE – This layout is
92 yards more than was laid out for the 1999 U.S.
Open at Pinehurst (7,122 yards in 1999).
HARDEST HOLES FROM 1999 –
The hardest holes of the 1999 Championship proved
to be numbers 5, 8 and 16, all par 4s. Hole 5, a 482-yarder,
played to an average of 4.54 followed by the 16th,
a 489-yarder, at 4.50. The easiest hole was the fourth,
a 566-yard par 5, which averaged 4.92 strokes. For
2005, the fifth hole will play 10 yards shorter while
three yards have been added to the 16th hole.
COURSE INFORMATION – The No.
2 Course at Pinehurst has 52 fairway bunkers, 57 greenside
bunkers and one water hazard (on hole 16). The average
size of the greens is 6,000 square feet, about what
the players see weekly on the PGA Tour.
2004 CHAMPION – Retief Goosen
used just 11 putts over the final nine holes and withstood
a challenge from Phil Mickelson to win his second
U.S. Open title, by two strokes, with a 4-under-par
276. Goosen began the final round with a two-shot
lead over Mickelson and Ernie Els. But, when Els fell
off the pace early, it became a two-man race. Goosen
led by three after he birdied the 11th and Mickelson
bogeyed the 12th just ahead. But Mickelson birdied
three of the next four holes to take a momentary one-stroke
lead as he headed to the 17th tee. Goosen joined Mickelson
at 4 under par when he also birdied the par-5 16th.
But, Mickelson three-putted the par-3 17th for double
bogey and Goosen safely parred the final two holes
for the win. His final round of 1-over-par 71 was
the second best score of the day. His 69 on Saturday
was the third best of the day.

|Tyson Quits - Rome's
is this how it ends for Mike Tyson? Who would have imaged
the formerly nastiest man on the planet, would quit
after six rounds against Kevin McBride? Or was it Kevin
Gilbride? At least I've heard of Gilbride and he didn’t
quit in that brawl he had with Buddy Ryan.
has been called a lot of things, but never a quitter;
until now. Mike didn’t want to be there Saturday
night. Even his head-buts and attempts to break McBride’s
arm were half-hearted. He didn’t even try to
bite the guy. Not once did he threaten to eat McBride's
children. You could tell by looking at Tyson, that
he had no intention to make McBride his girlfriend
Bottom Line: As sorry as the
heavyweight division is, we’re all going to
have to find someone else to save it, because Tyson
is finished. He has lost 3 of his last 4 fights and
while I can deal with him not being competitive, the
one thing I can’t handle is him not being interesting.
Mike, I thought you were going
to gut him like fish, not quit after the sixth round.

|The NBA Finals
NBA Finals are shifting to Detroit. The Pistons have
to find a way for the momentum to shift as well. In
the first two games at San Antonio, the Pistons did
not make shots, had no plan of containment for Spurs
guard Manu Ginobili and repeatedly lost their cool
- not exactly what PA announcer John Mason would call
"DEE-troit BASS-ket-ball." In fact, several
Spurs seem almost perplexed by how easy it has been
to dispatch the defending champions in Games One and
Two. They have held huge double-digit leads in both
games and have yet to allow 80 points.
San Antonio (59-23) at

To Gamble On The NBA

|NBA Mock Draft
Bucks - Andrew Bogut, PF , Utah (7'0", 242 lbs.)
Despite their poor record in 2004-05, the Bucks should
be just a healthy T.J. Ford and re-signed Michael Redd
away from respectability. Andrew Bogut is coming off
a great season at Utah and should be able to step right
in and contribute at centre.
Atlanta Hawks - Chris Paul, PG, Wake Forest (6'0",
Chris Paul is one of the more highly touted point
guard prospects in years - seemingly able to do everything,
but his size is his one area of concern. A team with
glaring needs at centre and point guard, GM Billy
Knight picks the best available player at one of those
positions. They will likely use free agency to try
and add a centre.
3. Portland Trail Blazers
- Marvin Williams, SF, North Carolina (6'9",
Portland's most glaring need is shooting guard, but
there isn't one worth picking this high in the draft
that can help them next year. Marvin Williams may
have the most pro potential of any player in the draft
and could be too much for the Blazers to pass up.
4. New Orleans Hornets
- Gerald Green, SG/SF, Texas HS (6'8", 200 lbs.)
Like any athletic high school wing man, Gerald Green's
game gets compared to Tracy McGrady's. While that
is a gross overstatement at this point, he is a high
flyer that boasts star potential - an area where the
Hornets are sorely lacking.
5. Charlotte Bobcats
- Deron Williams, PG, Illinois (6'3", 210 lbs.)
Though Brevin Knight did a solid job last year, the
Bobcats would like a long-term solution at the point
and Deron Williams is the best one left on the board.
Williams is a big, strong point guard that plays great
defence and should be able to contribute right away.
6. Utah Jazz - Fran Vazquez,
PF, Spain (6'10", 235)
Fran Vazquez is the most NBA-ready of the Europeans
and should help the Jazz frontcourt rotation right
away. He needs to get stronger to play power forward
in North America, but is a skilled and well-rounded
7. Toronto Raptors -
Chris Taft, PF/C, Pittsburgh (6'10", 250 lbs.)
Though it is too early to completely write off Rafael
Araujo, the Raptors need help in the paint soon and
Taft can give them that. Taft is big, strong and very
athletic, but doesn't always look like he's giving
100%, which could rub Raptor fans the wrong way.
8. New York Knicks -
Danny Granger, SF, New Mexico (6'8", 215 lbs.)
Danny Granger is a versatile player that played power
forward in college, but figures to be an effective-rebounding
small forward in the NBA. The Knicks could use more
size, but Granger - who played four years of college
basketball - should be an immediate upgrade over Tim
9. Golden State Warriors
- Charlie Villanueva, F, Connecticut (6'11",
Charlie Villanueva is able to play all three front
court positions. He's a very talented player, but
can be a little passive at times. He won't have to
play a lot of minutes in his rookie year, but could
be a nice option as a reserve.
10. Los Angeles
Lakers - Raymond Felton, PG, North Carolina (6'1",
Raymond Felton is a confident floor general who will
add speed to the Lakers' up-tempo attack. The Lakers
need to get better at the point and Felton's improved
jump shot this season at North Carolina will make
his transition to the pros easier.
