Helmets Off


Jan 30, 2018

Tiger Woods returned to competitive golf.  He played 4 rounds at Torrey Pines, the last course where he won his last major.  He has been stuck at 14 majors for what seems like forever.  He is in his early 40’s and can still compete.  Scott hopes that he can win another major or two.  Some positives to look at is that he shot under par and his short game is very good.  But he needs to fix his long game.  Their was a moment in the final round where he was trying to hit an easy putt.  On the back swing, a fan shouted and it completely threw him off.

Now onto the Pro Bowl.  It is brutal to watch.  Scott thinks that they should get rid of it.  But if you are going to keep it, Scott thinks that they should take a page out of the NBA’s book.  The NBA is now giving the winning team in the all-star game $100,000 and the losing team takes home $25,000.  But another idea is to let the young guys play.  Also, why not let the players play an 11 on 11 flag football game with players playing different positions just for fun.  Scott also notes that the NBA should have a dunk contest with players that are 6 feet or shorter.

A full disclosure, Scott is not into gambling and has never gambled.  Just a nice note for you gamblers, it is set up for you to lose.  Las Vegas has over 400 prop bets during the Super Bowl.  Over 100 million dollars was placed on bets in the 2017 Super Bowl.  You have the obvious bets like the point spread.  But then you have some crazy ones like will the coin toss land on, heads or tails?  Will Nick Foles first pass of the game be complete or incomplete?  Will either team score three straight times?  The bizarre ones include which flavor of Gatorade will be dumped on the winning head coach.  Will Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving’s point total on Super Bowl Sunday be higher than the highest passing yard completion to Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski.

Helmets Off is one year old.  Scott started the show the week of the Super Bowl in 2017.  Thank you all who have tuned in and keep tuning in.  Great things are coming!  Share with your friends!
