Sunday morning coffee

- The television clips this morning of Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, at Turnberry in 1977 and then playing together at St. Andrews during Jack's final tournament there, stirred up emotions of two great champions who dueled one another often and then became great friends. Watson's efforts during this weekend's British Open were enough to cause Nicklaus to send his first text message ever, to wish his good friend luck during the final round.

- You know you're a redneck when: 10,000 people attended the annual "Redneck Games" in Duluth, GA, which featured competitions like bobbing for pig's feet, spitting watermelon seeds, belly-flopping into a giant mud pit and making farting noises with your armpit.

- To all you Megan Fox fans out there (guys, this means you), she thinks you're "weak." Fox had this to say about the men who fawn over her. "Weak, ridiculous, retards--so pathetic."

- Quote of the day: In honor of tomorrow's 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon, and Neil Armstrong's first steps on the lunar surface, we give you this from President John Kennedy--"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." (May 25, 1961)

- USA Today reports that the average man owns seven pairs of shoes. The average woman? She owns 15. So, after you count the three sets of beat-up sneakers, the flip-flops, the golf shoes and the work boots, the average man has one set of dress shoes, right?
