AUGUSTA — CBS didn’t know what to do with Patrick Reed on Sunday, dodging around his unpopularity as the brash 27-year-old made his way around Augusta National. But Reed knows what to do to extend the discomfort level from here on: win more majors to go with his new green jacket.
Apparently, there’s a movie remake in the works featuring the one-and-only Mary Poppins. According to the ad I saw, the movie is due for a Christmas release. You tell me … if it’s not Julie Andrews, then can it really be Mary Poppins? If the chimney sweep is not Dick Van Dyke, then does it r…

Through the years, this column has included my fondness for a variety of different foods. From biscuits to boiled peanuts and from rice with any meal to Moonpies, I’ve not been afraid to reveal that my taste buds have not really evolved. As a matter of fact, they often resemble the food pref…

SAN DIEGO – So to summarize what’s happened in the San Diego bracket of the NCAA Tournament: The NCAA essentially admitted College of Charleston should be playing Clemson on Sunday and one of the most epic sports battles in West Virginia state history will take place no less than 2,370 miles…
SAN DIEGO – When you’re a player in the NCAA Tournament, you don’t go to Chipotle, Chipotle goes to you. But getting lunch delivered to the team hotel for a group meal is far from the San Diego highlight for Lyles Davis, a Clemson junior walk-on guard from James Island.
SAN DIEGO — There will be a lot of eyes on the College of Charleston-Auburn matchup Friday night at San Diego State’s Viejas Arena, and what a treat. College basketball fans and fellow travelers with temporary NCAA Tournament bracket interest will get a prime-time contrast to make “The Voice…
