Hurricane Isaac May Come Towards U.S.

The U.S. southeast coast may want to prepare, a tropical storm or hurricane may soon track your way for the first time in 2012. Be it Tropical Storm Isaac or Hurricane Isaac, the storm's path holds high potential for impacting the United States, according to the latest forecast models.

At the moment, it's a yet-to-be named storm, but that's expected to change by Tuesday.

A new tropical depression -- expected to be named Tropical Storm Isaac with potential to become Hurricane Isaac -- formed in the Atlantic Monday, prompting tropical storm warnings to be issued across a swath of islands in the Caribbean.

Ryder Cup: Capt. Pavin Should Stay Away

The U.S.Ryder Cup Team is in trouble.  The European team has the momentum, and the lead heading into the singles matches at Celtic Manor.

This Ryder Cup has been nothing short of a disaster for the team from America.  The clothing the team was wearing no only looked horrible, but wasn't even functional in the rain.  Some of Corey Pavin's picks as a captain have been questionable, and the team looks uninspired.

What is a captain supposed to do at this point?  Give a rousing "Win one for the Gipper" speech?  Get President Obama to make a call to each of the players?  No, none of that will work at this point.

The best thing Pavin can do at this point is to not show up.  That also includes the vice-captains or whatever they are called.  Let the players figure it out for themselves.

The matches have been set, so there is nothing else foe the captains to do.  let the players and caddies get out their on their own and play.  It may break all the tension and let the players relax.  Isn't that what these individuals on the U.S. Team do best, fend for the themselves? 

Monday is it, we are out of time and there is no margin for error.  Corey, stay away and let them players win or lose at this point on their own.  You haven't done anything to help up to now, what are you going to say to change the fortune of this bunch.

U.S. With A lot of Work to Do in Ryder Cup

The U.S, may currently lead 6-4 in Ryder Cup matches completed, but that's just on paper.

Team Europe was leading all six matches when darkness stopped play at Celtic Manor. The Americans still had the lead. It just didn’t feel that way. And with so much European blue on the scoreboard, it didn’t even look that way.

No points are awarded until a match is over, but it was looking good for Europe—especially with Lee Westwood and Luke Donald handing Tiger Woods one of his worst beatings ever in a Ryder Cup. They were 4 up over Woods and Steve Stricker through nine holes.

The weather for Sunday looks wet, and that could also favor the European team.   Any stoppage in play on Sunday, would result in the first Monday finish in Ryder Cup history.

In order to keep the cup, the USA will have to comeback and steal a couple of the matches currently underway.  It's going to be a tough task.  If the Americans lose, look for Corey Pavin to feel the wrath of the worldwide press.

Earl Heading to U.S.

Hurricane Earl, now a powerful Category 4 storm, barreled toward the U.S. coast early Tuesday after battering tiny islands across the northeastern Caribbean with heavy rain and winds that damaged homes and toppled power lines.

Earl is forecast to potentially brush the U.S. East Coast late Thursday, before curving back out to sea, potentially swiping New England or far-eastern Canada. The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned coastal residents from North Carolina to Maine to watch the storm closely.

In the Caribbean, Earl caused flooding in low-lying areas and damaged homes on islands including Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla and St. Maarten. Several countries and territories reported power outages. Cruise ships were diverted and flights canceled across the region.

The storm's center passed just north of the British Virgin Islands on Monday afternoon. By nighttime, the hurricane was pulling away from the Caribbean, but heavy downpours still threatened to cause flash floods and mudslides in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands by drenching already saturated ground.

The Hurricane Center said it was too early to say what effect Earl would have in the U.S., but warned it could at least kick up dangerous rip currents. A surfer died in Florida and a Maryland swimmer had been missing since Saturday in waves spawned by former Hurricane Danielle, which weakened to a tropical storm Monday far out in the north Atlantic.

Tennis fans are watching Hurrican Earl as it could impact play at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships late this week.
