Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  

BROADCAST HIGHLIGHT

Celtics vs. Suns, 1976 NBA Finals, 3 OT classic on NBC Sports Boston, 8 p.m.

INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN?

Frank Gore says the AFC East will be wide open. Jim Kelly said Bills win East. Really?

THE MATCH IS GONNA BE LIT

You want Tom Brady. You get Tom Brady, albeit on a golf course. He is partnering up with Phil Mickelson to stare down Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods. But this is going to be about Brady, who is evidently pretty decent at this sport, as well.

IF ONLY WE MADE THIS UP ... 

We've highlighted previously the methods some teams overseas have practiced to put "fans" in the stands of people-free games. Like the cardboard cutout fans in Germany. But this takes the spectator cake. A South Korean football team has been fined for placing...sex dolls...that's not a typo...in the stands in absence of actual humans. 

BECAUSE YOU NEED THIS

Can't go to an amusmeent park or your favorite playgrouns this Memorial Day weekend? Then get resourceful, like this fellow did! Seriously, this is a humblebrag worth charging admission to...from a safe social distance.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

On this day in 1884 a one-armed pitcher named Hugh Daily struck out 13 batters for the Chicago Browns. One note on Daily: He once punched his catcher for throwing the ball back too the mound with a bit too much gusto.
