Sports ‘n Stuff!

Fans are going nuts again. This time in golf. A fan was ejected from the Scottish Open on Friday morning after removing a club from Rory Mcllroy’s  bag and taking some practice swings.

The spectator walked up to McIlroy on the 10th tee at the European Tour event, at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, before removing a club from the Northern Irishman’s bag. McIlroy and his caddie looked on in confusion at the spectator, who was taken away by security soon after.

A spokesperson for the European Tour told ESPN “the matter is now in the hands of Police Scotland.”

Louis Vuitton has partnered with Wilson, they’ve come up with something truly special…a designer basketball that’ll run you $2,210. The limited-edition LVxNBA basketball features the fashion house’s iconic monogram, the NBA insignia, and uses the same brown leather they use for their classic luggage.

Even though recreational weed’s been legalized in California, the illegal stuff is still big business. That business took a serious hit, however, when authorities were able to confiscate a reported 373K plants during a ten-day operation. On the street, that pot would’ve had a value in excess of $1 billion, making it the largest illegal marijuana bust in the history of Los Angeles County.

Lucky Stiff Man of the day. In Jacksonville, Florida, one lucky S.O.B bought a Powerball ticket in April at a local grocery store…and then completely forgot about it. Then, this week, he decided to give his house a good cleaning during which he found the forgotten ticket. It was a good thing, too. It turns out that ticket was one that matched the five white balls…making it worth $1 million.
