TIME TO MOVE ON? THE SPORTS NETWORK's Jim Brighters wrote the PGA Tour "should bid a permanent goodbye aloha to opening the season in Hawaii." The Hyundai Tournament of Champions and Sony Open in Hawaii "are things of the past; hopefully, the permanent past." With each "passing year, the tour's top stars have skipped it more frequently." Hawaii is "beautiful, but who wants to travel that far?" (THE SPORTS NETWORK, 1/16).
BACK TO THE SALT MINES: On Long Island, Ken Davidoff noted with his two-year contract extension, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig "has three years to solve the messes in Flushing, Oakland and Tampa Bay and somehow keep more problems from sprouting (which naturally won't happen)." Selig is "going down in baseball history as one of the most active commissioners, and most of his innovations have succeeded." Davidoff wrote, "One hope: If Ryan Braun can't beat his appeal for the failed illegal PED test, then Selig needs to stop bragging about his work with illegal PEDs and, more specifically, touting the young generation of players as clean. It just can't lead to any good" (NEWSDAY.com, 1/16).
