Donald Trump makes 150M sports purchase

From Comcast SportsNet
NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump is buying the Doral Hotel & Country Club, home of the Blue Monster golf course and host to numerous professional tournaments over the years, for 150 million. The Trump Organization said it is buying Doral, which has been in bankruptcy for about a year, from Paulson & Winthrop Realty. The Trump Organization said on Monday that it plans to make a major investment to renovate the Miami property and its golf courses. The Doral will be fully operational during renovations, which should finish in the fall of 2013. "The combination of the property's incredible location in the heart of Miami and our very significant investment in upgrading the resort will enable us to return Doral to its former glory if not surpass it," Trump said in a statement. He serves as chairman and president of The Trump Organization. The Blue Monster had been the site of the Doral Open from 1962 to 2006 and has served as home to the World Golf Championship since 2007. Golf course architect Gil Hanse will help with the Blue Monster's renovations. The Trump Organization's hotel management unit, Trump Hotel Collection, is expected to take over Doral's management by June. The Doral includes 700 hotel rooms, four golf courses, a spa, restaurants, a clubhouse, ballrooms, meeting and retail space.

It sounds like Jay Cutler is bored in retirement

It sounds like Jay Cutler is bored in retirement

After a week off the air, “Very Cavallari” was back with a new episode, which meant more Jay Cutler in retirement.

This week we were treated to Cutler being as sarcastic as ever and sulking about having nothing to do. Cutler’s first scene involved him and his wife, Kristin Cavallari, talking about their relationship and spending time with each other. Cavallari is going to do another pop-up shop for her fashion store, which means more travel. Jay, your thoughts?

“Oh, great,” Cutler said with his trademark sarcasm.

Later in the conversation we get a bleak look into Jay Cutler post-football.

“I just hang out and clean up,” Cutler said.

Sounds like he may want to hit up the announcing gig he had lined up before coming out of retirement and heading to the Dolphins for the 2017 season.

Next, we got Cutler shopping for birthday presents for their 3-year-old daughter. If nothing else, this was amusing to see Cutler shopping for gifts for little girls.

Watch the video above to see all of the best of Cutty, which also features him designing jewelry for some reason.
