Welcome to the Monday Scramble, feeling rather super this morning as you are about to find out.
Q. What’s the only thing better than having a ticket to Super Bowl XLIV?
A. Actually being a part of the victory celebration, like the Monday Scramble was Sunday night in Miami.
As you can tell from the pictures below (the first 100-percent authentic photos we’ve had here since Henrik Stenson went skinny-dipping at Doral), we are so insanely connected within the world of professional sports and entertainment that we were able to get a couple first-class shoutouts straight from ground-level at the big game.
You know what they say: Why have your name in lights when you can have it written it in marker on a piece of cardboard? (And yes, that is the same confetti that Peyton Manning had to angrily bat away from his face as he exited the stadium.)
However, what started as just dumb fun actually ended in another big story for us…
Q. Besides tearing up in his interview with Roger Maltbie, what did the PGA Tour’s poster good boy Steve Stricker do after winning the Northern Trust Open – and Tour victory No. 8 – Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles?
A. According to exclusive pictures below, looks like Stricksy took the fastest B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber to South Beach.
Boy, does he know how to celebrate.
Take that Tiger-fistpump!
(Side note: According to the AP’s Doug Ferguson, the only time Stricker has not cried after a victory was at last year’s Shark Shootout during the silly season.)
But really, folks, with four wins in his last 15 starts on the PGA Tour – wait for it, wait for it – Stricker is really on a tear.
The Indianapolis Colts, on the other hand, have already hit the links as you can see from the picture below.
(We could have been honest and told you that this is really just the University of Indianapolis golf team on the range Sunday before the first round at Golfweek’s Spring Invitational at Reunion (Fla.) Resort, but what would have been the fun in that?)
