It seems like every year, championship rings in professional sports aim to out-do the previous years model. The collection of diamonds is greater, as is the overall weight and size. I've seen rings that swallow knuckles!
A couple weeks ago I posted a blog regarding the "Boomstick" -- the 2 pound hot dog sold at Texas Rangers games. Not to be outdone, the Washington Nationals have come up with a concession item that weighs in a bit heavier.
Bubba Watson made headlines with his Masters win on Sunday. His boomerang of a wedge-shot out of the pine needles on the second playoff hole will go down as one of the great shots in the history of the tournament.
With the NFL draft just over two weeks out, I thought it would be a good time to profile players who have been linked to the Packers in recent mock drafts.

The Milwaukee Brewers will formally announce their 25-man roster before their spring training finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks. After choosing to keep reserve Travis Ishikawa over Brooks Conrad, it's expected the roster will look like this:
The life of former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has taken another downturn. The number 2 pick in the 1998 NFL draft out of Washington State University, Leaf's football career never lived up to expectations. He is widely regarded as one of the biggest busts in NFL history.

With opening day right around the corner, one can practically smell the scent of freshly cooked brats and dogs when driving by Miller Park. To some, new concession items are nearly as exciting as the new season of ball. We usually learn the new items at Miller Park a couple days before the opener...so stand by for that.
The office NCAA pool is about as American as baseball and apple pie. Even those who have no vested interest in college basketball tend to get involved. All of these pool are...(cough)...for entertainment purposes only...(cough, cough).
