Celebrity status is often associated with wealth (commonly referred to as fame and fortune'), while fame often provides opportunities to earn revenue.

    The Open 2019: Nick Dougherty assesses the leading contenders to lift the Claret Jug

    Former Alfred Dunhill Links Champion and Sky Sports Golf presenter at the Open Nick Dougherty assesses the top 10 contenders to lift the Claret Jug.  Brooks Koepka  Why he can win... Has become a major titan, the man to beat. Tiger Woods has been the benchmark in the modern era and Koepka shares many of the same characteristics, in major golf at least. A great asset for him is Northern Irish caddie Ricky Elliott who knows the course like the back of his hand.  Why he might not...  Links golf is a very different discipline and he is yet to win an Open. There has been a lot of American success at Opens, but it often comes with experience and Koepka's rise has been rapid. Rory McIlroy  Why he can win... If there has ever been a criticism of Rory it's that he lacked consistency but he's had that in abundance this season. Multiple top 10s and chances to win, and lets not forget two titles at the Players Championship and the Canadian Open. A golf course he knows well where he smashed the course record aged 16. Why he might not... Expectation. He said himself it would be the greatest achievement in his career to win an Open in Northern Ireland and for someone who has achieved as much as him that is a huge thing to carry round with you. You can want it too much sometimes.  Rory McIlroy will be the star attraction at Royal Portrush Credit: PA Dustin Johnson  Why he can win... Has played well at Opens before. Very good at manipulating ball flight and accurate off the tee - at Portrush it's going to be all about keeping out of the bunkers. Second at the Masters and USPGA this year already.  Why he might not... Has only won one major, which is unbelievable when you think how many regular wins he has amassed. They don't seem to come in the ones he desperately wants though, while his good pal Brooks Koepka is the opposite.  Jon Rahm Why he can win... Has just won the Irish Open for the second time on links. Has said it feels like playing at home in Ireland and he adores playing in this part of the world. There or thereabouts most of the time.  Why he might not... At majors the big questions are as much emotional as they are technical. He's fiery and we talk about the being positive but it feels like a couple of tournaments in the past might have slipped by through beating himself up too much. Links courses are set up to catch you if you push too hard.  Tiger Woods Why he can win... He's Tiger. The 'can he do it again' question was answered at the Masters. Many would say he should be defending the Claret Jug after leading with eight holes to play at Carnoustie last year. Why he might not... Sometimes it looks like he is battling physically, particularly if the weather is cold. Has not played much golf and has he put in enough repetitions? Back in the day he won tournaments with his B game or even C game, but he needs his best stuff now.  The Open | Groups to watch Justin Rose  Why he can win... No weaknesses in his game and this year he has really started putting well - it was his big strength at the US Open at Pebble Beach. It's the best he has ever been on the greens, and that was the only doubt about him. Great at managing the course and himself.  Why he might not... Everyone thought an Open win was a certainty for Justin after his fourth-place finish as a 17-year-old at Royal Birkdale in 1998, but surprisingly has had only two top-10s since. One of those was a T2 last year though.  Francesco Molinari  Why he can win... Defending champion and generally a very good driver off the ball which will be important to keep out the thick rough and bunkers. Had a great win at Bay Hill with a closing 64.  Why he might not... Adjusting to being a major champion can be hard and it often takes players a little bit of time to come to terms with their new stature in the game has. He has played decent this year, but I'm not sure he has played his very best stuff. Francesco Molinari held off the challenge of Tiger Woods at Carnoustie last year Credit: Getty Images Jordan Spieth Why he can win... His Open win at Royal Birkdale was amazing. His putting has started to show real glimpses of promise recently and getting back to being a strength. His creativity around the greens is dynamite and he is one of those Americans who seems to relish adapting his game.  Why he might not... While there are signs, there is no real consistent form to suggest he is ready to win and the driving can be erratic.  Tommy Fleetwood Why he can win... Ball-striking up there with the very best in the game. If you find the greens at Portrush you have done the lion share of the work, so for Tommy it is about how many chances he can give himself. He usually sets up plenty.  Why he might not... Not quite as fast out of the blocks this year. His form is not bad by any means but he would have liked a couple of wins under his belt by now.  Rickie Fowler Why he can win... My pick for the Open. Great finishes in Opens before  and has won the Scottish Open plus four other top 10s at that event. Loves links golf, knows how to flight down shots, is great around the greens and putts well.  Why he might not... He hasn't done it before, that's the only negative. Some have questioned his ability to close out tournaments but he did win at Phoenix earlier this year. Sky Sports is the only place to see live coverage of The Open at Royal Portrush.

    Review: NECA's 'Karate Kid' Tournament Two-Pack

    It's remarkable just how long lived John G. Avildsen's 1984 movie — that was basically a remake of his own Rocky, with kids and karate in place of adults and boxing — has lasted in the culture. To the point that when an episode of How I Met Your Mother included cameos by leads Ralph macchio and William Zabka, and included a fan theory about how antagonist Johnny was actually the real hero of Karate Kid...it stuck. It stuck so well that YouTube greenlit an entire sequel series, Cobra Kai, based on the premise that Johnny ultimately was the victim after all. Funko made retro-figures, Icon Heroes is making super-poseable sculpted figures, and NECA has just released its "retro-style" 8-inch figures with cloth outfits.

    Hulu stops Kristen Bell from swearing in 'Veronica Mars' reboot. Here's why

    SALT LAKE CITY — Hulu doesn't want Kristen Bell swearing in the “Veronica Mars” reboot on the streaming service. Bell, who played the teenage detective on the original “Veronica Mars,” wanted to curse in the new season — which sees Bell return as an adult version of the character — but Hulu nixed the idea. “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas explained why in an interview with TVLine. “I understand Hulu's decision,” he told TVLine. “They bought (streaming rights) to all three seasons of 'Veronica Mars.' And because those three seasons are built to appeal to younger people, they want them to be able to watch the first three seasons (seamlessly) with season 4. That was their thinking on it.” Bell

    Scooter Braun Hints the Taylor Swift Drama Has Taken a ''Toll'' on Him

    Scooter Braun is breaking his silence... The 38-year-old music manager is making light of his recent drama with Taylor Swift on social media. "Last couple of weeks have really taken a toll on me," he shared on Instagram, alongside an altered photo of himself looking a lot older. If anything, he playfully joined the recent online trend of celebs transforming themselves into old people. Naturally, the entertainment executive's 3.1 million followers took notice, including some of his famous friends. "Handsome," Sam Smith commented on Braun's post. "Bruhhhhhhhh," Graham Bunn wrote. While Scooter has yet to publicly address his drama with the 29-year-old blonde beauty, this comes pretty darn close.

    The Rolling Stones — 'Bridges to Bremen'

    The presence and power of the Rolling Stones is undeniable, regardless of what era of their illustrious career is placed under the microscope by means of archival releases or feature-length documentaries. But, in many ways, the Rolling Stones literally owned the nineties. Their Bridges to Babylon tour—spanning a year in length, featuring 97 shows across four continents—was the second highest-grossing tour of that decade, which is second only to their own Voodoo Lounge tour of 1994-1995; It's a remarkable achievement, especially in a decade when major acts such as U2, the Eagles, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, and Madonna all staged major productions of their own. But, as remarkable as those artists

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harry Styles is "in talks" to play Prince Eric in the upcoming live-action version of Disney's The Little Mermaid. Per a source close to the subject, the conversation around the Prince Eric casting is still in "early talks." However, this potential casting is still pretty buzzy: Styles made his film debut in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk in 2017, but has yet to score another movie role. Earlier this week, rumours that Styles would portray Elvis Presley in an upcoming biopic from Baz Luhrmann were shot down when Austin Butler nabbed the role instead.

One of the eight runs was unearned. Carl Edwards Jr. pitched an inning in a rehab assignment. Edwards loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a walk, but he struck out the other three batters he faced in the inning, so no runs were scored.
