TIGER IS BACKKKKKKKKK!!
Strap in folks. It might just be one of those memorable days in sports. After Tiger Woods needed to shoot something in the 65-67 range on Saturday to even have a chance in the Open Championship, he did just that with an electric 66.
On the prowl!

Yes, it has been 10 years since Tiger Woods won his last major championship, but he is at 5-under par right now and only four strokes away from the leader.
It’s been awhile since the sports world felt this, but there is just something downright magical about a Sunday in golf where Tiger is squarely in contention for another major as he wears his legendary red Nike polo.
Let me be clear on this: I will be rooting incredibly hard for Tiger today. We are talking about a 42-year old man who has been broken physically, mentally, and emotionally over his career.
Last time Tiger Woods led a major was 2012 PGA Championship. That weekend the #1 movie at box office was The Dark Knight Rises, when a super rich guy, presumed dead, climbs out of an impossibly deep hole despite an ailing back. Just saying… pic.twitter.com/CNsHwZITrP

Has he made mistakes? Of course, and we all know about them. But he has spent the last decade trying to atone for his past as the world of golf has patiently waited on his return to the top of the sport.
We are talking about one of the most dominant athletes in the history of sports trying to make one of the biggest career comebacks we have ever seen.
How can you not root for that? Think whatever you will about his mistakes. He deserves the criticism. However, root for this man to win the Open today. Root for what would be one amazing story.
Jared Lorenzen’s E:60 Special Aired This Morning
The former UK quarterback steps back into the spotlight today as he gets his own E:60 documentary titled “The Hefty Lefty.”
We all know Lorenzen is one of the most fascinating figures in the history of UK football, and it’s awesome that his story is continuing to be shared on a national stage.
The documentary covers his entire career from UK to his time with the River Monsters. We will also be given an in-depth look at his struggles with weight loss.
Similar to how I will be feeling towards Tiger today, I am rooting extremely hard for Lorenzen and his battle to stay healthy. Please, watch this special and support a good man who has shown continued support towards KSR.
Here is a preview for the documentary:

Terry Wilson Makes Appearance on Netflix Show “Last Chance U”
In episode three of the third season of “Last Chance U” on Netflix, UK quarterback Terry Wilson is heavily featured as the quarterback for his former team Garden City who plays the featured team Independence Community College.
During his time at Garden City, Wilson threw for 2,113 yards with 26 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. He also averaged 47 rushing yards per game and had five rushing touchdowns. Wilson is currently competing with Gunnar Hoak for Kentucky’s starting quarterback spot.
If you aren’t interested in watching the entire new season, I personally urge BBN to watch the last half of episode three as Wilson’s talent is on full display.
Same episode, Terry Wilson (who could be Kentucky’s starting QB this fall) is on the other team and slings a long TD late in a close game. https://t.co/6BMBMwQUhB

He shows great quickness running the ball, but more importantly he showcases some impressive arm strength as he attempts to lead his team to a huge fourth-quarter comeback. Even though his team doesn’t come out on top, he still looks very impressive.
However, be aware that this show is rated TV-MA. The featured coach for Independence is incredibly passionate and he literally has no filter. If you don’t care for a literal boatload of abrasive cursing, just fast forward to the last 20 minutes of this episode to watch Wilson.
