A few years ago, University of Connecticut men's basketball coach earned criticism regarding his salary when details emerged post-2008 economic collapse. When asked if he would return any of the money he had been seemingly undeservedly compensated, he replied in a brusque manner, 'Not one cent.'

We have known for years now about the flaws and warts inherent in the awarding of Gold Gloves. Ask Adam Jones if he feels he should sign over his Gold Glove to Mike Trout and I'm sure you'll get a response similar to Mr. Calhoun's. Onward, to the links!

Maryland native, and rep'er of an Adam Jones jersey, Greg Merson currently (as of 7 am.) sits in 2nd place (out of 3 remaining players) in chips at the finale of the World Series of Poker Main Event. He retains about as many chips as he began play with last night. Good luck, dude!
