Remember the good old days, when the family went to a Major League Baseball game content to see a Major League Baseball game? No more. If you bring the station wagon to Citi Field Saturday, not only will see you the Mets play the Reds, but if you stay...

Worthiness of the winner? Chambers Bay: check.
Historical value? Chambers Bay: check.

No one does visual bling like Fox Sports, which offers a snazzy, sometimes-too-ornate jewelry box of special effects.
This week, Fox has brought all that jazz to the U.S. Open. Drones. Topo maps. Microphones in cups. Around the golf hole, they've...

Give me a three-shot lead down the stretch of an important golf tournament and I likely would have done exactly as Jordan Spieth did Sunday at the U.S. Open. Which is to say I, too, would have cut my tee shot on the 17th hole way right into a gnarly lie...
