Sunday Sports Wrap - February 22, 2009

Golf: Today is the final day of the Northern Trust Open. I actually went yesterday and had a blast! It was the first golf-related event that I had been to in quite some time that I was not working as press. It was very nice to sit back and enjoy the event without worrying about missing a shot or interview. Learnings of the day include that Phil Mickelson can really swing a club at an amazing speed and Rocco Mediate truly is a nice guy. If you get a chance to go to a PGA Tour event this year I would highly recommend it.

NFL: The NFL Combine continues today. Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers work out today.

NBA: The Lakers are on STILL ON FIRE and remain the best in the NBA. Minnesota hosts the team tonight.

Must've been nice to just go and enjoy an event without having to stress out about interviews and everything.

I can't tell you just how much fun it was! I ran into a colleague that asked, "Oh are you writing something?" I was delighted to say, "No, I am enjoying the event and some adult beverages!"

You mean you don't drink on the job?
