It was a crazy week for golf with the return of Tiger Woods. All eyes were on The Masters, and it did not disappoint. Tiger did not end up placing very well; however, him simply playing brought much attention to the event.
We had terrific fights at UFC 273, a great start to the baseball season with several high-scoring games already, and we are just a few days away from the return of the USFL.
This week on Wise Kracks, my cohost, Jon Orlando, and I are joined by legendary UFC commentator Mike Goldberg (@GoldieOnTV). Mike goes down as one of the most recognizable voices in MMA next to Joe Rogan and has some fantastic insight this week.
This week, I gave some advice on the importance of shopping around when betting on golf. The odds for a golfer to win a tournament varies from book to book. There are small advantages you can gain by shopping around that will really add up. With golf, there are so many players in the field and it is challenging to pick a winner and very risky. For outright winner odds, “I don’t like betting anything 20 to 1 even.”
Getting Pulled out of a Perfect Game
In the history of Major League Baseball, there have only ever been 23 perfect games. Clayton Kershaw was on his way to becoming the 24th pitcher to hurl a perfect game, but Dave Roberts had other plans. Both Jon and I did not like the decision made by the Dodgers manager to pull Kershaw before the start of the eighth inning.
Jon made the point that, “The difference between 80 to 100 pitches is not that big of a deal.”
I also think that Baseball needs excitement and, “There is nothing more exciting than a perfect game.” Kershaw backed up his manager, but it did leave a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.

And Still UFC Champion?
UFC 273 was a fantastic event this past Saturday, adding more drama to the Bantamweight division. Aljamain Sterling was able to defend his UFC Bantamweight Championship against Petr Yan, winning the fight by split decision. Sterling won the belt due to a disqualification and people called him the “Paper Champion.” Jon told us it would be Sterling last week, and he squeaked by with the win.
