Reaction on the death of Wade Belak

Wade Belak blows his wife and daughter a kiss

The sun has set and I'm still crying. As I write this piece, tears fall from my face and hit my keyboard. The feeling in my stomach is familiar to the one I had when my Uncle Archie died. It's gut-wrenching.

Earlier today, retired NHLer Wade Belak was found dead in his Toronto home, leaving the hockey world speechless. Numerous reports coming from multiple outlets are saying different things, but we have no way of knowing forsure at this time what happened to the former Maple Leaf.

Tiger's back, and not a moment too soon

Can Eldrick return to old form?

Well, it's not spectacular, but it's better than nothing.

Tiger Woods just shot 72 in the third round of the WBC Bridgestone Invitational, putting him at +1 overall, tied for 38th. After firing off a first round 68, he has now shot two straight rounds over par, including yesterday's 71. Woods is missing putts that you would normally assume he would make with ease, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. While he hasn't limped or shown pain like we have been accustomed to seeing the past few years, the frustration from every bad shot or missed opportunity is hard to watch.
