Weekend Update


-On the 2nd playoff hole, Angel Cabrera captured his first green jacket Sunday at The Masters. Cabrera defeated Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry in the playoff to win his 2nd career major. Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson put on a show for the first 16 holes before collapsing on 17 and 18. The world's #1 and #2 golfers came from out of nowhere to finish 5th and tied for 6th respectively.

-In what has become and underrated rivalry, the Angels won a wild game Sunday to take 2 out of 3 from the Red Sox. After Josh Beckett uncorked a pitch over Bobby Abreu's head, two different bench clearing brawls ensued. For the Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher, outfielder Torii Hunter, pitcher Justin Speier, and manager Mike Scioscia were all ejected. Hopefully the Angels can translate some of their regular season success to the playoffs should these two teams meet again.


-Woody Harrelson attacked a TMZ photographer last week, claiming that he mistook the man for a zombie. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! HAHAHA! Oh, boy, I smell a moron of the week nominee. His publicist issued a statement that Woody was still in character from shooting a zombie movie. Maybe Woody should have realized that there was no catering department at the airport. What a great story!

-After making a surprise visits in 2 different movie theaters, including one in my home state, Miley Cyrus captured the box office crown for the weekend by bringing in $34 million.

-For what it's worth, I saw Adventureland over the weekend. I give it two very enthusiastic thumbs down.


-Captain Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama has been rescued by U.S. Navy SEAL snipers. In a daring rescue effort, snipers were able to fatally shoot 3 pirates that were holding Captain Phillips, and rescue him after he gave himself up as a hostage in order to free his crew. I'm thinking that next time, the pirates probably won't be as cordial to whomever it is that they capture.

-According to the top U.S. military commander in Iraq, the United States should be out of Iraq by late 2011. General Ray Odierno told CNN's John King, that on a scale of 1 to 10 that it is a 10 that the US will be out of the country by 2011.
