Tiger is playing golf…and Championship Weekend is here!

The World Challenge Golf Tournament is underway in Sherman Oaks, California (ah…California!) and is hosted by Tiger Woods.  This tournament benefits his foundation, so thus Tiger is playing golf as December is upon us.  Graeme McDowell has a 3 shot lead at -9, Van Pelt, Bradley and Furyk are tied at -6, and Tiger is four off the lead at -5.

In other sports news, Gregg Popovich decided to leave his best players behind when he took the Spurs to Miami to play the final game of a six game road trip.  David Stern did not take kindly to this and has announced today a $250 thousand dollar fine for Coach Popovich and the Spurs.  Ouch!

Saving the best for last, Championship Weekend in College Football is upon us!!!  Tonight in a rain soaked Palo Alto, 8 Stanford is hosting 16 UCLA in a rematch of last weekend’s game (which Stanford won) to decide who wins the Pac 12 along with a BCS berth and a trip to the Rose Bowl.  Just after the half, they are all tied up 17 – 17.

Updates later and/or tomorrow…Big games to look forward to tomorrow, especially the showdown in the Georgia Dome, the SEC Championship game between 2 Alabama and 3 UGA for the right to play 1 Notre Dame in the BCS Championship!

Cannot wait!!!
