In the middle of the final round of The Masters, Stuart Appleby drove his tee shot straight into the bunker. Needless to say, Appleby wasn't happy about it. Listen in closely to hear Appleby drop two f-bombs under the announcer's voice, and a third right afterwards. You have to listen carefully to catch it.

Former Team USA and Arizona softball stud Jennie Finch was on ESPNEWS making her debut as a fantasy baseball analyst Tuesday. The uber-hottie picked a handful of players she expected to have bounce-back years. Her list included names such as Gary Sheffield, AJ Burnett, Mark Teixeira, and Randy Johnson.
Here was Jennie Finch's analysis on why Randy Johnson will improve in '07, and the name Casey is in reference to her husband, Diamondbacks pitcher Casey Daigle (with audio below):
"Casey's been hanging out with Randy, he's working harder than ever. He's going to have a great season next year. He's moving from the NL to the AL he'll get to face pitchers this year. I'm looking for a good strong year from Randy Johnson."
I'm sure it was just a silly error that happened in the moment, but it's still kinda funny. On the bright side, she's still hot, so all she needs to do now is practice.

Illinois basketball coach Bruce Weber hasn't had the swellest run of it lately; two of his players were recently involved in a car accident, one of whom, Jamar Smith, is being charged on two felony counts. Prior to that incident, there were a few other problems within the program.
That's probably why a media member brought up the idea of a zero-tolerance policy for the athletic department. Needless to say Weber was not to happy about the suggestion, and in turn, he criticized the media for not doing their jobs. Here's a brief transcript of his rant, which you hear by pressing the play button below.
"There was a kid in a program that got arrested a couple weeks ago and he played on another team. I don't read the paper and I don't turn on the news, nothing against you guys but there's a lot of stuff that doesn't get printed so I don't bother…you're going to hold us to high standards why don't you hold somebody else?"
My quick hit: Cleaning up a program has to start somewhere, and maybe with Weber and Illinois. And in case Weber is wondering why they're getting picked on, which he is, it's because of the car accident and the felony charges on Smith.
While appearing on the Mike North Show Morning Show on WSCR in Chicago, Bears LB Lance Briggs made it abundantly clear that he is not happy with the Bears organization, and that he wants nothing to do with them. His words are very powerful, and you can listen to a snippet of the interview below. But first, the following is a brief transcript of his remarks:
"I'll do everything that's within my power in order to not be with this organization…after this 4th year, I played out a four year deal from a 3rd round pick at league minimum and this is the thanks."
My quick hit on this – I know it sucks if you're out-performing your contract, but sorry, if you willingly signed the deal, then you must live up to it. Lance, think back to the days in your first training camp. Were you just happy to be on the team? If so, then appreciate the fact that they gave you a contract. Just mind your business, play hard, and you'll get a big deal next off-season.
Did you really expected the Bears not to franchise tag you? Also, sorry to say, but EVERYBODY looks better playing alongside Brian Urlacher. Let's see how you do without him around.
