Power Rankings - Arnold Palmer Invitational

I'm going to take a typical golfer reaction to last week and blame everyone but myself for how my teams performed. I've noticed a marked decline in my points since I've restarted writing here and it has absolutely nothing to do with my terrible picks despite having the winner in my rankings for many of the weeks thus far. Death by analysis. Also, I've got entirely too much cultural...

In an attempt to replace DeMarco Murray and his 392 carries, the Dallas Cowboys have added veteran RB Darren McFadden.  McFadden joins Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar in the Cowboys backfield and his injury history alone will prevent him from from seeing 225 carries, something he has never done in his 7 year career before!  Last season was the first time he played in all 16...

Risk and Reward - Valspar Championship

I've got to try to keep this one fairly short, so I apologize if this post is somewhat bereft of humorous references to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines controversy and Jeremy Clarkson's fracas. Mid-terms are here, so that means I've got to spend some of my few brain cells working toward that end. What does that all mean for you? Nothing really, in fact, I'm sure you're quite relieved...
