PLYMOUTH â€” Fuzzy Zoeller can lay claim to a U.S. Open and Masters championship. Now after a long and successful career as a golfer, Fuzzy is throwing his hat into another ring.
Fuzzy Vodka hit shelves in July 2009.
Zoeller was in Plymouth Thursday night to sign bottles and press the flesh for members and non-members alike as the local country club held its annual Fall Stag.
Zoeller recently played in the Champions circuit of golf, formerly known as the Seniors. Now, Zoeller, said, heâ€™s going to focus his attention on his vodka.
CGA wins opener vs Judson
Culver Girls Academyâ€™s swim team dove into the 2012 season with a dominant 126-38 win over visiting North Judson Thursday night at home.
The Lady Eagles swept the top spot in all events and went one-two in eight different races, including the 200 free and 400 free relays.
My counterpart, Mr. Ron Haramia, has done an exceptional job skewering Notre Dame fans and the team itself.
But in this weekâ€™s column, Ron seems to think that if Notre Dame ends up making a BCS game (which is almost assured at this point) or the title game, they would be run off the field.
Not just run off the field.
You would think that Notre Dame would encounter such a throttling that Dana White might buy the game and sell it on Pay-Per-View.
I spent my Saturday watching college football.
Now that all-mighty Alabama has lost, Notre Dameâ€™s path to college footballâ€™s national championship game has become less crowded. Just two teams â€” Kansas State and Oregon â€” stand in the way of one of the most storied college programs in history having a shot at the title.
ARGOS â€”Â On the heels of its repeat Northern Indiana Soccer Conference championship season, the Argos girls soccer team was awarded four first team and four second team All-NISC picks, it was announced Wednesday.
Senior forward Jami Patterson and senior goalkeeper Karlee VanDerWeele were both named to the leagueâ€™s first team, as were junior mid Raelynn LaFrance and junior back Shelby Sanders.

CMA â€” Gavin Walker (Phil Kreuser, Corey Taylor).
ARGOS â€” Triton girls basketball head coach Adam Heckaman expected a game of runs at Argos Tuesday.
The two highly-touted teams proved Heckaman right, with his Class A No. 6 squad delivering the decisive spurt in the second half on its way to a 54-47 win over the Class A No. 10 Dragons at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
After falling behind 29-26 with 2:51 left in the third quarter, the Trojans boosted the tempo and rattled off seven straight points to end the frame, taking the lead for good with Kylie Masonâ€™s triple in transition off a dish from Taylor Hatfield at the 2:10 mark.
BREMEN â€” Although it is still very early in the high school girls basketball season, Bremen and North Judson were antsy for that initial victory while facing off Tuesday at the Lions Den.
Both played well on this night, but it was the Lady Jays who reached the â€˜Wâ€™ column first after winning 70-60 in the non-league game that was much closer than the final score indicates.
ARGOS â€” The Argos boys soccer team was awarded six All-Northern Indiana Soccer Conference picks â€” including NISC Player of the Year honors â€” following the Dragonsâ€™ conference championship season, the team announced Tuesday.
Sophomore striker Damon Binkley was voted the leagueâ€™s player of the year, while fellow sophomores Josiah Osborn, Taylor Ogle and Zack Stockman were all named first team All-NISC. Senior Jordan Oâ€™Dell and junior Dominic Cataldo were selected for second team honors, meanwhile.
Lady Falcons down Eagles
Carah Ochs put up a game-high 23 points, and John Glenn held Andrijana Cvitkovic to eight as John Glenn earned its first win of the season while handing visiting Culver Girls Academy its first loss 72-60 at home at The Aerie Tuesday night.
Behind senior guard Ochs, sophomore Kyler Columbia put up 14 points for Glenn as the Lady Falconsâ€™ backcourt knocked down nine 3-pointers to trump the Eagles front line for the win.
