Asking Questions and Doing Things

A Mother’s Day Visit to the Water Cooler

Your schedule is an action packed juggling act of home, daycare, work, husband, bills, parents, laundry, grocery store. Life.

Here’s me encouraging you to take a minute for yourself today. Eat a healthy snack, take a walk and clear your head. And don’t forget to visit the water cooler.

Here’s a summary of what’s been going on in the world of sports while you were busy living being awesome. Happy Mother’s Day!


PGA Golf: PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.– Tiger Woods, usually uncomfortable at TPC Sawgrass, showed complete control of his game during a pressure-packed closing stretch to win “The Players Championship” for the second time yesterday. It was Woods 78th career win. Tied for the lead with two holes to play, Woods kept his shots on land and made two pars. Sergio Garcia stood on the 17th tee tied for the lead before hitting three balls into the water for a quadruple-bogey-double-bogey finish. It was the quickest Woods has reached four wins in a year. The only other time he did it before June 1 came in 2000, when he proceeded to win the next four majors.

Baseball: Atlanta Braves have lost 3 in a row, but still lead division by 1 game. Outfielder Justin Upton, who joined the team via trade in January, is off to an MVP start to 2013. Upton was named the National League’s top player for April, finishing the month atop the ESPN Player Rater and leading the majors in home runs with 12.

SEC Football: Florida State QB EJ Manual was the first quarterback selected in the NFL Draft, when he was taken as #16 pick in the first round by the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago.

NFL Football: LAS VEGAS, NV — Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson will be back in court today when he will try to convince a judge that his former attorney botched his armed robbery and kidnapping defense in 2008 and an appeal two years later. Simpson, who was arrested in 2007 in Las Vegas because of his role in an armed robbery to get back memorabilia he said was wrongfully taken from him. Simpson initially sought new trial citing his transgressions were caused by head trauma by concussions received during his playing days.

Horse Racing: Pre-race favorite Orb, won 139th Kentucky Derby last Saturday on sloppy, rainy track. Rosie Napravnik’s bid to become the first woman jockey to win ended with a fifth-place finish aboard Mylute. It was still the highest finish by a woman rider, bettering her ninth-place showing two years ago.

Basketball: Lebron James of Miami Heat won his fourth MVP award last week as NBA Playoffs entered second round.

Hockey: Stanley Cup Playoffs underway. Boston Bruins – Toronto Maple Leafs series tied 3 – 3. Game 7 in Boston tonight.
