It's cold up in Lancashire. Bring a sweater. Oh! I see you already did, golf pros. As de facto ruler of this blog, I say Tiger wins, because I'm into the off-white vibe with a flash of pink. But putting aside personal and sartorial preferences, I thought I should bring some experts into the fold here — David Cho and Robert Mays — to discuss the sweater game of the golfers at the British Open.

Chris Ryan: This guy is wilding out with this Le Coq Sportif thing. He's got the little badges on it.
Overtime is an interesting phenomenon. There's no way to go into a sporting event expecting it. If you think about it, two teams or individuals getting the exact same score, be it over 48 minutes, nine innings, or four days, is kind of crazy. Anyway, for the invested sports fan, this whole overtime thing usually becomes a point of great stress. Yes, if your team was down and fought back, then you're ecstatic, because at the very least, you have the momentum going into extra time. But it's still stressful. For someone who is simply a fan of sports and has no real investment in the competitors, teams, or event, however, there's nothing better.
One of my earliest basketball memories is going to an Atlanta Hawks game at the Omni (RIP), watching the game go to overtime, and hearing a guy behind me and my mother stand up and scream, "FREE BASKETBALL." That's always stuck with me, because that's exactly what it is. Extra sports weren't included in the original package, and essentially, this additional time spent watching the game was on the house.
There were two opportunities to catch free sports on Sunday. Due to a weird cocktail of high theatrics and Carmelo Anthony, the New York Knicks rallied late to force overtime against the Chicago Bulls. And down at Augusta National, Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson forced a playoff at the Masters.
