NFL news, and the Los Angeles Rams continue to make big moves this offseason. Multiple reports yesterday indicate the Rams have traded with the New England Patriots to acquire wide receiver Brandin Cooks in exchange for a pair of draft picks. Cooks totaled 65 catches for nearly eleven hundred yards and seven touchdowns for the Patriots last season. The Patriots obtain the 23rd pick in the NFL Draft, scheduled for later this month.

TBS coverage of men's finals not scoring well

TV ratings came in for Monday night’s men’s national championship game, and quite frankly, they’re not good. Yes, the result of the game became a foregone conclusion early in the second half but even the early returns were discouraging. The tournament is doing itself no favors airing the Final Four and title game on TBS considering the popularity of the two schools. 

A Tradition Unlike Any Other

Every year at this time, the sports world stops and takes a collective moment to reflect on the Masters. It doesn't matter how hardcore you like your sports. There's simply something about the tournament that makes almost every sports fan pause and take in the scene.

As picturesque the surroundings of Augusta, Georgia are, there is a sense of chaos and added excitement this week as Tiger Woods appears to be one of the favorites to don another green jacket.

Win or lose this weekend, quite frankly isn't the biggest splash Woods could make on the event. Just being on the leaderboard going into Sunday's final round almost assures we'll all be taking in the scene and basking in the moment.

The sport has tried to move on from Woods. The sport has tried to promote, market, even focus their presentations around the up-and-coming superstars of the sport.

Woods still has all of our attention, and it may have some amazing results this week.
