Give the kid a break….

Johnny Manziel got bashed by the media this week for partying in Las Vegas over the weekend. Seriously? He’s a 20-year old kid straight out of college and he’s about to start a career in the NFL. Isn’t he allowed to have a little fun?

Said Manziel this week:

“I don’t live my life according to you guys or according to what other people think of me. I’m going to live my life to the fullest and continue to be committed to this game and committed to what I need to be doing here.”  Good for him.

Some people take break-ups

 harder than others….

Last week Rory McIlroy announced he and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki had broken off their engagement.

A few days later, McIlroy won the BMW Championship.

After the opening round of the Memorial on Thursday, he has a three-shot lead.

His ex-fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki, lost her opening round match at the French Open.

Turning it around….

Maybe this is the turning point for the Red Sox? Boston ended its 10-game losing streak with an 8-6 win over Atlanta on Monday and they are currently riding a 4-game winning streak (all wins against Atlanta).

Yeah, you’re good, but we’re 

going in a different direction…

The U.S. soccer team named its roster for the upcoming World Cup and one familiar name was left off the list…..Landon Donovan. He’s only the face of American soccer and the all-time U.S. leader in goals and assists.

If you remember, at the last World Cup it was Donovan’s goal against Algeria that enabled the U.S. to win its group for the first time in 80 years.

How did Donovan react to the snub? He scored two goals last night for the Los Angeles Galaxy breaking the all-time record for regular season goals in MLS history.

What can you buy for $2 Billion?

Former Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, has reportedly bought the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 Billion dollars, ….yes that’s $2 BILLION (almost four times the highest previous NBA franchise price of $550 Million paid earlier this month for the Milwaukee Bucks ) and thus officially ended the Donald Sterling era.

I guess $2 Billion is cheap for a guy who is worth approximately $20 Billion. The good news is that the Clippers can finally move on from the Donald Sterling drama, and get back to playing basketball.
