NFL QB Chokes Away Golf Match To 14-Year-Old

NFL quarterbacks represent the pinnacle of athletic ability. They are the golden boys of pro sports, gods walking among us mere mortals … the walking embodiment of what a man should be. So if they’re involved in an athletic competition - any athletic competition - against a 14-year-old kid, they should be able to brush aside the challenge like a rhino swatting away a fly.

Drew Olson and Carlos Briones

Unless, apparently, you are former UCLA star turned NFL back-up Drew Olson. As the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE reports, he made it to the semifinals of the San Francisco City Golf Championships before getting bounced by a 14-year-old kid named Carlos Briones. And for a player who made a name for himself by leading the Bruins to five double-digit comebacks his senior season, he folded under the pressure and blew a two-up lead with three holes to go. To a 14-year-old.

Lots going on behind the scenes for the good ship SbB the past month or so. So here’s a State of SbB address of sorts…

Brooks Broadcasting in Los Angeles

(I’m back on ESPN 710AM in Los Angeles tomorrow at 3:25 PT)

I’m about to dive into dishing sports celebrity gossip via regular radio appearances. Tomorrow, I’ll kick it off by appearing on two flame-throwing sports radio stations - in Los Angeles and Milwaukee.

Mason & Ireland ESPN Radio 710am

At 3:25 PT I’ll appear in L.A. on KSPN-AM’s (710) “Mason & Ireland Show,” with Steve Mason and John Ireland.

Drew Olson 540 AM ESPN Milwaukee The D-List

And at 9:05 AM PT I’ll be on 540 AM ESPN Radio in Milwaukee, appearing on Drew Olson’s show, “The D-List.”

Whenever I’m doing radio live, I’ll have a front page link to the audio (when available) - and the show’s web page. And we’ll have a special radio page linked in the Brooks box that will detail all the stations I’ll be appearing on regularly. I’ll have more details on the additional shows and stations that we have lined up for appearances shortly. Probably get that page up tonight.

We’re not screwing around, we’re going on with the top personalities and stations in North America. Can hardly wait to get it rolling. If you want me on your show, or have a suggestion on where I should appear, email me at Brooks@SPORTSbyBROOKS.com.

From the SbB BizDev Dept.: We’ve signed a deal to join the Yardbarker.com network.

Yardbarker.com Logo

As you may know, Yardbarker is a sports blog network of over 600 sites (including SbB favorites AA and EDSBS), and hosts the official blogs of athletes like Baron Davis and Greg Oden, Donovan McNabb and Darren McFadden. The network is undergoing scary growth, roughly doubling its audience in the past couple months.

(Yardbarker.com deal for SbB will help our bottom line. And our financials too.)

In case you’re wondering, the deal will not change the content or look of SbB one iota. I’m excited about the partnership as it should really help us grow SbB in more ways than one.

I’m also proud to present Barry’s Tickets and MyBoyBarry.com as the official ticket supplier of SPORTSbyBROOKS.com.

MyBoyBarry.com 888 820 8499 Buys And Sells Tickets Concerts Sports Theater

(Yeah, I know it’s an ad. And your point is?)

Like other countless Southern Californians, I’ve bought tickets on my own from Barry Rudin for years, many that I used for SbB events. So it’s pretty damn exciting to have him sponsoring the site.

Barry’s Tickets is the biggest ticket broker on the west coast, so you can count on him giving you the absolute best deal (and service) on tix to sporting events, concerts and theatre shows. And he’ll also buy your tickets. Just hit him at MyBoyBarry.com or 888 820 8499 (put that # in your phone, you WILL need it someday, trust me).

Again, I’ve been doing business with Barry’s Tickets for years now. He was my go-to well before I met him, and started doing business with him. Over the next 12 months, I will be attending some of the biggest sports events (and concerts) thanks to tickets from Barry - many times with the SbB Girls in tow (not a bad cargo, thank you very much).

In the case of the sporting events, I will live blog from the venue (like we did from the Final Four and the MLB All Star Game), and of course get plenty of pix for SbB posts. (Uh yeah, Barry rocks.) Read more…
