Edwin and Eldrick, Who Would Have Thunk It? Oh, John Daly's Pants Too!

It's a crazy thing when Edwin Encarnacion is having a better week than Tiger Woods. Edwin storms out of the All-Star break with seven hits in two games. Bronson was big again too, as the Reds beat the Brewers 4-0 Friday night.

While Edwin was racking up seven hits, Eldrick "Tiger" Woods was suffering big-time at the British Open. He gets back to even par, then ends up 5-over, and just missing the cut. Soooooo, you think they may as well take in the pins and close up the pro shop since NOBODY cares about a tournament without Tiger? Enter Tom Watson, and the man with the crazy pants. If the 59-year old Watson is still hanging with the leaders going into Sunday, this will be unreal. If he wins the British Open, it will be the biggest sports story of the year. He would smash the record for the oldest player to win a major championship. Julius Boros was 48 when he won the PGA Championship back in 1968.
Meanwhile, how can you not get a charge out of John Daly? Those Loudmouth Golf pants must have some of those stoic British blokes blowing tea out their noses. Just for fun, let's take a look at some of John's drawers:
