Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. SOB STORY

It was quite a scene on the green after Bubba Watson's win at the Masters Sunday. No one has seen that much crying after a sporting event since the Bills' last Super Bowl loss.

2. WITH YOU WIN OR TIE

Arkansas football fans staged a rally to show their support for embattled football coach Bobby Petrino. Why do I think attendance was much higher to back a coach who went 11-2 than it would have been for a coach who went 2-11?

3. POPULAR OUTCOMES

The Yankees and Red Sox both got off to slow starts last weekend. If you listened carefully, you could hear the cheering in Toronto, Baltimore, Tampa Bay

4. SILENCE ON AIRWAVES

Radio 1230 AM has decided not to carry any major league baseball broadcasts this summer. Sounds like someone at Yankee Stadium might have a beef with WECK.

5. I GOT IT RIGHT

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld his own decision on suspensions to Saints' officials. That's a pretty interesting judicial system; the federal government could save a lot of money on appeals court judges if it adopted it.
