Double Drivel 5/13/14

Sean Foust recently connected on his first career hole in one.  He aced the 166 yard 15TH hole at Butler Country Club using a 7 iron.  Rumor has it Sean’s uncle Gary Whittington has been working with Sean on his swing. 
Wandy Rodriguez is 0-1 with a 10.38 ERA at AA Altoona.  Can’t wait to see him back in the bigs. 
Floyd Money Matweather was paid $32 million for his fight with Marcos Maidana.   The fight went 12 rounds so that was 36 minutes.  Floyd pocketed $2,666,667 per round, or $888,889 per minute, or $14,815 per second.  There are also reports than when the pay per view dollars are added in Floyd’s total could reach $70 million.
In 1972 baseball teams used an average of 2.94 relievers per game.  In 1992 it was up to 4.29.  Today the number is up to 5.96.  No wonder some games seem to go on forever. 
The Steelers first round pick Ryan Shazier may turn out to be a good one, but I think they had other needs that could have been addressed.  Shazier played outside linebacker at OSU and now will have to move inside since the Steelers paid big money to Jason Worilds and drafted Jarvis Jones last year.  The Steelers could have drafted C J Moseley from Alabama who is an inside linebacker.  I thought they would have either tried to find a replacement for aging Ike Taylor at cornerback or found a lineman to replace trouble Mike Adams.  After back to back 8-8 seasons I thought Kevin Colbert could have done better. 
The Steelers home opener might be much more appealing if Johnny Manziel wins the Browns starting quarterback job. 
Kentucky recently gave raises to 2 assistant basketball coaches now paying them $350,000 per year.  14 head coaches of teams that made the NCAA tournament last year don’t get paid that much. 
Thought of the week:  Eventually all things fall into place.  Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.
