August 16th 2010: Daily Sports News – Gossip – Headlines

Water Cooler – August 16th, 2010

Here we go with today’s sports water cooler talk. Here, you won’t just find the straight news; you’ll find the stuff everyone is talking about – the ice breakers, the Twitter Sports Picks and topics…well, basically all the stuff you discuss at the water cooler.


The daily news gets an ugly start this week, as a gross rule technicality and a trade that wasn’t to be are the top headline makers today.

PGA news: Dustin Johnson eliminated from PGA Championship playoff on technicality

Dustin Johnson's Two-Stroke Penalty Costs Him The PGA

Nothing against Martin Kaymer. He played a great 75 holes of golf over the weekend and deserves his PGA Championship title.

But you have to feel for Dustin Johnson. He qualified for a three-hole playoff with Kaymer and Bubba Watson after finishing at 11-under on Sunday. Then, disaster struck. PGA rules officials claimed Johnson grounded his club in a bunker on the 18th hole, docked him two strokes and eliminated him from contention.

Johnson didn’t protest anything to do with grounding his club. He did let it rest for a moment or two before hitting his approach on 18. But a bunker? I’m sorry. No lip, no rake, and it was FULL OF SPECTATORS. No way that’s a bunker. Nevertheless, the PGA claimed it was and slapped Johnson on the wrist. What an embarrassment for the sport.

NHL news: Leafs fail to move Kaberle before deadline

After months of talking the talk, Brian Burke couldn’t walk the walk with Tomas Kaberle. The outspoken Toronto Maple Leafs GM had until midnight to move his puck-moving defenseman – preferably for a top-six forward or possibly for future assets – before Kaberle’s no-trade clause reactivated. Burke failed.

Burks says he never received an offer worth accepting. What he failed to realize was that getting anything for Kaberle probably would’ve been smart since Kaberle’s contract ends after 2010-11 and he can walk, leaving Toronto with nothing in return.

NFL news: Tebow scores touchdown in debut; Chris Chambers marries his own stalker

Is it news? Maybe not. But most football fans have an eye on Tim Tebow’s NFL career whether they admit it or not.

For anyone who wants to know: Tebow went 8 of 13 for 105 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals over the weekend. He didn’t throw a touchdown pass but he flashed his vintage form, ending the game by scrambling seven yards, running over safety Kyries Hebert and scoring a touchdown.

Yes, the Ohio faithful in attendance booed him passionately. They haven’t forgotten.

And yes, Chris Chambers married his own stalker. Wait – what!?

Technically, it’s true. The Chiefs wideout married Stacey Bernice Saunders last month. Saunders was his former mistress – the same former mistress who terrorized his wife with harassing phone calls. Chambers eventually asked for a temporary restraining order on Saunders. Then he divorced his wife and married Saunders two days after that.

So I guess they’ll live, uh, happily ever after?

And I suppose Saunders has given hope to stalkers everywhere.
