Before we get to this week's contest, here are the results from last week.
Billy Horschel won the Bryon Nelson tournament in a one-hole playoff against Jason Day. Both golfers finished at -12, but Horschel was able to par the 18th hole in the playoff, while Day settled for a bogey and second place in the tournament. This was Horschel’s first win at the Byron Nelson and his first win during the current PGA Tour FedEx Cup season.
These are the results of this week’s Steemit Scramble:
The 2x multiplier was Sergio Garcia’s final score in relation to par, which was -4. The closest to that total was @thebeesknees, who guessed -5. So, @thebeesknees was able to doub
Do you believe me that the first time I heard for word SELF-CONFIDANCE was when I was 25?!
I had beautiful childhood. Always great in school and praised from all around. That's why I didn't have problems with self-confidence (until one woman came into my life :D).
Always in sport, never cigarettes, drugs or alcohol (now only beers with my friend @buzzbeergeek or my friends bikers sometimes).
But this school yard marked my childhood. When I didn't have books in my hands, I was there. Any kind of sport, especially football (soccer) was for me.
This is it - my school yard. And my old home school is behind it. Enjoy it!
Grab a beer and enjoy!
The welterweight division is one of the most exciting in the sport today, and a very important matchup is taking place in it next weekend.
Kell Brook is still a welterweight title holder, his last fight was a KO loss to the much bigger Gennady Golovkin at 160lbs where Brook had never fought before.
Now’s he’s back down to his natural weight, but Spence isn’t exactly a small welterweight himself. I hope he’s had enough time to properly recover from the GGG fight since he suffered a broken orbital bone during it.
Errol Spence Jr. is an American prospect who has a record of 21-0-0 with 18 KOs. He was a former Olympian and decorated amateur who has now arisen as the top boxer to emerge from the 2012 Olympic team. Spence is a very skilled puncher who has shown a tremendous body attack, which is one of his greatest strengths.
His best w
Kawhi Leonard has been ruled out of yet another game.
He was expected to play in Game 3 but not only did he not play in Game 3, he is now being held out of Game 4 as well.
In related news, this man has officially been declared the MVP of Golden State after his cheap shot on Kawhi Leonard:
All that being said, be sure to check the odds line tonight in Vegas. They looked pretty silly the other night when Boston pulled out a win after getting something like 16 points.
As of right now, it looks like the Spurs are getting 11 points. I think they cover that easily, even if they don't win the game.
If Boston can beat Cleveland without IT, anything c
Crawford was definitely considered the favorite but we wanted to see if a technical guy like Diaz could provide any challenge for him, and it ended up looking like a now typical dominant performance by Crawford. Crawford came out southpaw from the start, and used his boxer/puncher style to out fight the gold medalist Diaz.
Bud’s ability to adapt during the fight is one of the key reasons why he is a top pound-for-pound fighter today. You might be able to tag him a handful of times in the early parts of a fight but Crawford has so far always found a way to make the proper adjustments and proceed to win decisively.

Will that luck continue into Game 4 which is just now underway?
The good people in Vegas don't seem to think so as the spread was 15.5 in favor of Cleveland at the time of tip-off.
I got burned taking the points with the Spurs, but it's hard not to take 15.5 points in a series where Boston actually won the game outright a few nights before.
Boston getting no respect.
I think Boston may have caught the Cavs off guard a bit on their home floor, but I don't think they will make that same mistake again. I have my doubts if Boston will win another game this series, but I do think they can stay within the spread.
For that reason I took Boston with the points.
Who you guys got tonight?
I already posted about this event a few months ago, since my marketing agency WeCare4u was in charge of the marketing and social media aspect.
The event took place at the Barclaycard Arena - the biggest venue in Hamburg, where superstars like Justin Bieber or Rihanna usually perform.
The arena was remodeled with the boxing ring in the middle, and around it at floor level were several tables where VIP guests had dinner.
The Celtics were coming off the most lopsided loss by a number 1 seed in NBA history.
A game that saw them lose by 46 points.
And, it really wasn't even that close as they were down by more than that for much of the game.
Then, to add insult to injury (literally), Isaiah Tomas was ruled out for the rest of the Series with a hip injury shortly after the game.
Somehow Boston pulled themselves together, played good team basketball, and was able to squeak out a victory at the very end.
It likely won't be the start of something and quite possibly the only win they will enjoy the rest of this season, but it was shocking and welcome none the less.

오늘은 제 취미를 소개해드릴까 합니다. 바로 골프입니다.
저의 골프의 시작은 지인의 추천이었습니다. 사실 시작하기 전에는 돈이 많이 든다, 어렵다, 어른들이나 하는 운동이다 라고 생각했는데 직접 해보니 왜 골프에 빠져서 부부싸움이 나는 지 등짝을 맞는 지 알 수 있었습니다.
I would like to introduce my hobby today. It is golf.
The beginning of my golf was the recommendation of my acquaintance. In fact, I thought it require a lot of money before starting, it was difficult, I thought it was an exercise for adults, but when I did it myself, I could see why the golf caused the couple to fight.

I am actually so surprised and impressed by the will, dedication and skill of these kids, ages 7-11.
It's amazing to see how fast kids learn, and how excitable they are!
These kids are so energized and just want to move and challenge themselves.
Seeing the smiles on their faces is priceless!
Os quiero contar mi primera experiencia haciendo yoga y explicaros en qué consisten algunas de las posturas que he aprendido.
En primer lugar quiero hablaros de la postura del Loto.
He de deciros que es un postura que parece fácil, pero engaña, es complicado conseguirla y sobretodo estar en una posición cómoda. La comodidad en esta postura es muy importante porque es una postura que se hace para la meditación.
Para lograr esta postura tienes que estar sentado y llevar el pie izquierdo hacia la ingle derecha y viceversa. Es muy importante que mantengas la espalda recta y apoyes tis manos sobre los muslos (como podéis ver en la foto, la posición de las manos no es correcta pero era mi primera vez).
Los beneficios de esta posición son: fortalecer la pelvis, relajar los abdominales y fortalecer lkas articulaciones de tobillos, caderas y rodillas.
La siguiente postura es Bhujangasana (también denominada Cobra).
The Celtics came back from 21 points in the third quarter and pulled out the single biggest playoff upset since 2005.
Boston covered a 15.5 point spread by winning Game 3 outright!
Impossible you might think!?
Well, here we are again, the Celtics are getting no respect by the sportsbooks and the betting public in tonight's Game 4. Cleveland opened as 15 point favorites. I've seen it as high as 15.5.
Clearly, the betting public who lost money on the Cavs in Game 3 are looking to recoup their losses here in almost an identical spot. Or is it?
I mean, the Celtics won the game, one would think that the spread would adjust between Game 3 and Game 4 after seeing that Boston can hang around, make it close, or like we saw Sunday, pull out a victory.
Personally, I know bettors who will be on Boston and I know bettors who will be on Cleveland. I don't think
