We fans will never forgot that season and neither did Calvin. Calvin Johnson, selected in his first year of eligibility, became just the third player to […]

What I do believe is that he […]

Fat Guy Corner

The British Open champion is 24-year-old Collin Morikawa, who has now won two majors. Collin won the PGA Championship last year in front of zero fans, which was not the case at Royal St. George’s last Sunday. Collin won this event in front of 32,000 fans, claiming a two-shot victory over Jordan Spieth. I want you to think of this: […]
