Is this the beginning of a Deflategate revenge tour for Brady and the Patriots? And boy does he have one Sunday at Cleveland. If that was the best way to do it, just not do anything for four weeks and just go do push-ups, I think that's maybe what we'd do.

Of course Scully didn't leave baseball fans without one unlikely play call. The Los Angeles Dodgers have released a video commemorating and honoring their legendary announcer Vin Scully . The Giants are only as good as Saturday's starter, Ty Blach , can be against Los Angeles' Clayton Kershaw; only as good as their ability to make a small rally turn into a conga line, as they did in the seven-run sixth inning off Brandon McCarthy; only as good as their ability not to let the Dodgers hold ...

Johnson led by as many as four shots when he ran off three straight birdies on the front nine, and he really didn't do much wrong to give up the size of that lead.
