Weekend follies.

A-Rod hits three home runs on Saturday, numbers 602, 603 and 604. Purists, however, say the homers should have an asterisks – they were hit against the Royals.

Meanwhile at the PGA Championship, this great line from Marc Ragovin: There was a disturbing moment Sunday as Tiger Woods blurted out “[bleep] me” after making a poor shot, and 15 women came running out of the gallery

President Obama’s Florida swim to prove the water was safe resulted in some mixed feelings from conservatives. Half of them said, “What a silly stunt, of course we know the oil won’t hurt anyone.” The other half said “Think he could go back and swim a few more times?””

Tim Tebow fans are convinced that his seven yard touchdown run in tonight’s game proves he can be an NFL quarterback. Realists point out that it was on the last play of a pre-season game against the Bengals, which means he probably means he faced a tougher defense in the Sugar Bowl against the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.

Are Las Vegas oddsmakers nuts? SF Giants are 6 to 1 odds to win NL pennant. Sounds reasonable but as of today the Mets are the SAME odds. Really.

When any reader finds somewhere giving 1-6 odds against the Mets winning the pennant, please let me know.

Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem was arrested Sunday for possession of marijuana following a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County. With all the expectations of Miami this year, let’s hope this isn’t the team’s high point.

Bizarre stat of the week: the item Walmart sells more of than any other is…bananas.

A few years ago, I was able to visit a Dole banana processing plant in Costa Rica.

Hmm, where have I heard that before?

    swimming in the gulf? but isn’t the guy already black?

    I might take that Giants’ bet and cheer them on the rest of the way. I missed “The Giants win the pennant!, The Giants win the pennant!” by one year and a few days. Would be neat to hear a re-make.
