Europeans Rally Past Americans To Take The Ryder Cup

Ryder CupWhat looked like a potential runaway for the Americans turned into a thrilling nail-biter as Europe, playing in memory of Seve Ballesteros, won the 39th Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club, 14 ½-13 ½.

Tom Benson Buys New Orleans HornetsTom Benson, the popular owner of the New Orleans Saints, has now endeared himself even more with local sports fans by purchasing the floundering New Orleans Hornets professional basket ball team.

Benson was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1927. He purchased the Saints from then owner John Mecom in 1985 after he learned from Governor Edwin Edwards that the team was on the verge of being sold to parties interested in moving the team to Jacksonville, Florida.
