Watch fans throw beer on the course after Francesco Molinari's hole-in-one

The fans at the TPC at Scottsdale are famous for being arguably the rowdiest in golf, a key result of the Waste Management Open being the best attended tournament on the PGA Tour year after year. The rowdiest seem to find themselves to the 16th hole. The par-3 hole is the only one completely surrounded by stands, giving it a completely unique environment, the likes of which we saw today when Francesco Molinari hit an ace. Let's go to the videotape.

My 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Ballot

The induction process for the Pro Football Hall of Fame generally does not see the rancor that surrounds its counterpart in baseball but it by no means is a flawless process. That said, there will be a newly inducted class headed to Canton that will be announced tomorrow evening ahead of Super Bowl XLIX. After nailing three of the inductees last year, here is my hypothetical ballot for this year's induction.

Super Bowl XLIX Predictions

Does it not seem like just yesterday that we were kicking off the 2014 NFL season back in September? Well that was five months ago and we have whittled down from 32 teams with hopes to win the Lombardi Trophy to only two. The New England Patriots are looking to win their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history and their first in a decade. The Seattle Seahawks are looking for their second Super Bowl in team history and to become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl since the Patriots did it in Super Bowl XXXIX. This is the second straight season where the top seeds in both conferences find themselves playing for it all.

There can only be one NFL champion, so who will win Super Bowl XLIX?

2015 NFL Mock Draft: 2nd Edition

All eyes this week are on Glendale, Arizona and rightfully so. That said, let's take a step outside the realm of Super Bowl XLIX and focus on all other NFL squads (or at least those with a first round selection) to see how they will position themselves to make a run for the Lombardi Trophy. It's the 2015 NFL Mock Draft, my second edition.

2015 NASCAR on Fox Announcers

2015 will mark a new era of sorts for NASCAR as it is the first year of a new television contract featuring Fox and NBC Sports. Fox is the holdover as they will be entering their 15th year of NASCAR coverage since debuting with the 2001 Budweiser Shootout but there will be some changes to their coverage as well. They will air three more Sprint Cup races and add Xfinity Series action as well as their continuing coverage of the Camping World Truck Series across Fox and Fox Sports 1, but there will also be some changes with their on-air presentation as well. Let's take a look.
