Golf Channel's hit reality competition show, The Big Break starts another season tonight, this time set in the exotic locale of Riviera Maya, Mexico.
The show will feature 12 professional golfers ready to pursue their dreams of playing on either the PGA or LPGA Tours. Six men and six women will be competing in a mixed team format with the ultimate prize being an exemption to play either on the 2013 OHL Classic for the men or the 2013 Lorena Ochoa Invitational for the women.
The youngest cast member this season at just 22 years old is former University Colorado golfer Emily Talley. While playing for CU, Talley won the athlete of the year honors for the University, as well as an All-American Honorable Mention for 2012.
The Big Break premieres tonight at 7pm MST on the Golf Channel. Check it out, show some support for the local lady and while you're at it, give her a follow @emtal on Twittter.
"Sure, it’s great to know what plays are being run and what one’s role is
while “Green Frog Left” is going down. Building chemistry with teammates
is understandably a solid thing to work on as well. However, nothing is
more important than the real knowledge gained on the list below. "
"Folks were basically gathering up their chairs, selecting spots on the parade route and putting in their PTO days to plan accordingly. The Super Bowl was a done deal in the minds of Bronco Country because the team had given us no reason to think anything other than total domination in the post season."
"There are activities for pets and their owners to participate in as well. You have the ol’ pet/person lookalike contest, always a bit frightening and amusing at the same time. There is also an agility course that dogs can take a run through if they are feeling fast and nimble. There is even a best pet kisser contest: for real."
" What we can tell from this draft is that Denver wants to be prepared for anything this season. Depth at every position is crucial down the stretch and into the postseason if a team wants the best chance at hoisting that elusive Lombardi Trophy. "
"Don’t get me wrong. I am certainly not saying that there is any excuse for driving while intoxicated and endangering the lives of not only yourself but innocent drivers and pedestrians around you. But when you have access to the services and finances that come with a legendary career like Michaels’, it is even more frustrating to process."
The game looked like an episode of the Three Stooges, as neither team was able to move the football and put any points on the board amid the cold and snow, until five minutes remaining in regulation.
Realistically Manning only has a few good years of high physicality left in his 37 year old body. What happens if Denver fails to get to a championship game in that small timeframe? Riots in Boulder? Couch torching on Capitol Hill?
"I have a four year old son. Yes, he is technically too young to even know what sexuality is but as soon as he starts asking questions we will be there to answer them as openly and honestly as we can. If he is curious about the sexuality of his favorite athletes I sure hope to be able to have a candid and real answer for him."
Over the years, the Denver Broncos have had their share of great late-round picks and even undrafted free agents who have added major contributions to the legacy of the franchise. Here are my power rankings of the 11 guys that got passed over and proved everyone wrong. Why 11? Because at SSDF, ours goes to 11.
