Music's Greatest Golfers

I was listening to "Back in Time" this morning, the Back to the Future anthem made moderately famous by Huey Lewis, The News, and nostalgic 80s radio stations. And it made me wonder: who's a better golfer, Huey or Dweezil Zappa? Could Engelbert Humperdinck take them both?

Thanks to the upcoming issue of Golf Digest, I can wonder no more. They've ranked the "Top 100 in Music -- By Their Golf Handicaps."

Huey is tied for 18th with a 6.2 handicap; Dweezil is right behind him at 20th and a handicap of 6.3. Engelbert lands at #23 on this chart.

The most entertaining threesome ranks 62nd to 64th: Celine Dion, Bob Dylan and Snoop Dogg. Other music/golf double threats include Alice Cooper (#11), Justin Timberlake (tied for #15), Branford Marsalis (#29), American Idol Taylor Hicks (#58), Andre 3000 (#92) and Pink (#100).

The Top Ten looks like this: 1. Kenny G; 2. Vince Gill; 3. Marty Roe (of Diamond Rio); 4. Steve Azar; 5. Adrian Young (drummer for No Doubt); 6. Rudy Gatlin; 7. Larry Gatlin; 8. Steve Gatlin; 9. Josh Kelley; 10. Paul Brown

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
