Natural-born brunette. She was discovered wearing a Labatt's Beer T-shirt when her image was transmitted on the stadium's widescreen at a BC Lions football game. The fans cheered the beautiful girl, and she was brought down to the 50-yard line and introduced to the appreciative crowd. Was signed to a commercial contract with Labatt's and became the company's Blue Zone girl. Playboy Playmate of the Month Feb 1990.
Past husbands; Tommy Lee and Kid Rock. Was earning $60,000 per Baywatch episode in 1989.
"I don't really think about anything too much. I live in the present. I move on. I don't think about what happened yesterday. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out."
"Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror."
We'd like to fondly remember her before plastic surgery ran amok.
The World Golf Rankings are flawed mainly since it's a two-year cycle. Compare the above rankings for the last six months vs. the official list. Via Nosferatu on Twitter.
The main moves are Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy switch places at the top, Bubba Watson drops from 3rd to 11th, Jimmy Walker (12th to 4th), Paul Casey (23rd to 7th) and J.B. Holmes (13th to 6th).
The hottest players should be ranked higher and a 6th month span is more than a fair assessment of a golfer's game.
BTW, Tiger Woods now drops to 220th entering the Greenbrier Classic this week.
GolfDigest.com posts a reassuring story that not every slow golfer is a clueless oaf on the course.
We can all agree that slow golf is the worst. There's nothing as painful as watching someone take four practice swings for every shot on their way to shooting 102. But there are a few situations that merit slow golf. The most obvious is people who are learning how to play. Whether they're juniors or adults picking the game up, you've got to cut them some slack when it comes to slow play on the course.
This Reddit user was out playing by himself, and had a couple in front of him who were clearly learning how to play. The course was busy, so he couldn't play through. Instead of getting frustrated, he played two balls and let the couple do their thing. When he got to the last hole, the sleeve of ProV1s was waiting for him, with a note thanking him for being patient. It read simply: "Thanks for being so patient! Have fun!"
A shining example for all the course snails to follow...
Tom Brady and wife Gisele are one of the highest-profile celeb couples around. Most golf clubs would love to admit them as members.
Except for maybe this one. The Boston Globe reports why the Country Club in Brookline could have reservations about welcoming them with open arms. The club is ranked 19th in Golf Digest's top-100 greatest courses.
Word around the club’s meticulously manicured grounds is that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, whose mansion is just an errant tee shot away, would like to join. But it’s not clear if the club famous for understatement and insularity will accept the glamorous power couple as members.
Why? Because the 133-year-old institution prizes privacy and discretion above all else. And Brady and Bundchen, trailed as they often are by paparazzi, and occasionally controversy, attract the sort of attention abhorred by the multimillionaires who belong to the primrose playground on Clyde Street in Chestnut Hill.
“I don’t know what they’ll do about Brady,” said a prominent Boston businessperson who is amused by the club’s predicament. Like any bastion of Brahmin privilege, “The Country Club believes your name should appear in the newspaper just two times: When you’re born and when you die.”
Besides the Pats quarterback and his wife, homeowners in the pricey neighborhood include real estate developer Jonathan Davis, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and Reebok founder Paul Fireman, who, in the late 1990s, built a sprawling, 25,000-square-foot mansion adjacent to the club, to much harrumphing by TCC members.
The club has a well-deserved reputation for being exclusive — some would say exclusionary — when it comes to its members. Consider this: No Jews were admitted until the 1970s, no women (as full members) until 1989, and no blacks until 1994. In his memoir, “A Reason To Believe,’’ former governor Deval Patrick revealed that he and his wife, Diane, were rejected — “blackballed,’’ he wrote — by The Country Club.
Somehow, I think the dynamic duo will manage just fine...

It's no secret Phil Mickelson loves to gamble. He and a syndicate are said to have put $20,000 down on the 2001 Super Bowl and won a reported $560,000. He also was reprimanded by the PGA Tour for betting Mike Weir $20, on 25-1 odds that Jim Furyk would sink a shot from the bunker while in the clubhouse at the NEC Invitational in 2001.
Thus, it really comes as no surprise that Phil the Thrill is now tied to a large gambling transaction that involves money laundering as reported by ESPN.
Mickelson, a five-time major winner and one of the PGA Tour's wealthiest and most popular players, has not been charged with a crime and is not under federal investigation. But a 56-year-old former sports gambling handicapper, acting as a conduit for an offshore gambling operation, pleaded guilty last week to laundering approximately $2.75 million of money that two sources told Outside the Lines belonged to Mickelson.
According to court documents, in March 2010, Silveira -- a participant in "an illegal gambling operation which accepted and placed bets on sporting events" -- accepted a wire transfer of $2.75 million, which he knew was part of "illegal sports betting." The money, according to the documents, came from a "gambling client" and had been transferred into Silveira's Wells Fargo Bank account. Three days later, Silveira transferred $2.475 million and then $275,000 into another of his Wells Fargo accounts. The next day, Silveira transferred the $2.475 million to another account he controlled at JPMorgan Chase Bank.
However, ESPN legal expert Lester Munson believes Mickelson won't be charged in the case.
There are many possibilities, but chief among them is that federal gambling laws are directed at gambling enterprises and not at individual bettors.
Enacted in 1970 as part of a package of legislation known as the Organized Crime Control Act, federal gambling statutes are aimed at businesses with more than five employees and those who "finance, manage, supervise, direct or own" them.
Mickelson likes to live on the edge, but he's also very shrewd. My thinking is he knew exactly what he could--and shouldn't do when involved in these scenarios.
With his wife Roothie at his side, Peter Oosterhuis announced that he has early onset Alzheimer’s during a fundraiser in May for Jim Nantz’s National Alzheimer Center.
A very sad story here about ex-CBS broadcaster Peter Oosterhuis battling the onslaught of Alzheimers. As one who has a parent stricken with the disease, this is a tough, heartbreaking read.
Oosterhuis has a hard time saying the official name of his diagnosis: early- onset Alzheimer’s. The disease is one in which proteins that form a destructive plaque progressively take over brain cells, causing the afflicted to lose memory and other mental functions. One of every three seniors in the United States dies of Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, and there are projections that the disease will have grown to epidemic proportions by 2050. Currently, there is no cure.
Now 67, Oosterhuis was given the bad news by a Charlotte neurologist last July. He had been aware of some memory loss that was affecting his commentary on CBS and Golf Channel. “Maybe in the course of my commentary, I wasn’t giving a lot of information like I used to; I would just talk about what’s on the screen,” he said. “But I didn’t feel like I had those things ready in my mind to call on to make a point, like I used to.” Still, he was surprised at the severity of the diagnosis.
“There is no sweeter, kinder, more humble person in all of golf,” says Ian Baker-Finch. “I’m sure he is sad, but when we get together, he doesn’t dwell, and we follow his lead. But sure, we miss him, and he misses us.”
He still broadcasts on Sirius/XM radio Saturday mornings and appears fairly normal--but without his usual understated wit.
As stated, this is one of the worst, most frustrating illnesses we face. The victim still appears normal, but just can't remember much or communicate. Our thoughts go out to him and his family.
Oh brother. Just when you think you've seen it all...
A 49-year-old golfer Dave Sayers tried to trash his clubs after a terrible round at a charity golf tournament in England. Cue the comedy.
The 49-year-old said the booze-fuelled stunt was the result of a failed attempted to throw away his golf clubs.
“We were coming to the end of the day and I had been losing it a bit with a few bad shots. We’d all had a few beers." "I said, ‘I’m going to bin these clubs’ but they wouldn’t fit. I decided to go a step further ... I went to put my head in the bin, but then I couldn’t get it out.”
That's some mighty symbolism for ya. What price fame, huh?
