Sports Illustrated columnist Joe Posnanski had a meeting scheduled Thursday with NBC Sports & Olympics chairman Dick Ebersol to discuss the network’s golf coverage.

Little did Posnanski know that his meeting would be cut short because Ebersol was on his way to resign from NBC Sports:

Los Angeles Dodgers Offering Free Tickets To Military Members During The Month Of May

Looking for some positive publicity, Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda announced Monday that the Los Angeles Dodgers were offering free tickets to all military members during the month of May.

All members of the joint services with a valid military ID, including active, reserve and retired veterans as well as their dependents, may take advantage of this offer by showing their military ID at any Dodger Stadium ticket booth day of game. Each military ID will be good for two complimentary tickets, based on availability, and more details are listed at www.dodgers.com/military.

Lasorda, who served in the Army from 1945-1947, made the announcement one day after President Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden.
