Father’s Day gave dads everywhere a chance to spend quality time with their kids, and pro athletes were no different. For example, Phil Mickelson and his daughters played putt-putt, and Barry Bonds and his son went fishing. It should be noted that by “putt-putt”, I mean miniature golf, and by “went fishing”, I mean injected designer steroids, dodged questions, and in general was a gigantic asshole.

Ford Motor Company is providing customers with an incentive program that gives new buyers a debit card of $1,000 good at gas stations nationwide. That’s good for about 330 gallons of regular unleaded, but I think we all know that some schmo out there is going home with 1,000 Powerball tickets.

The record breakers topped off their day by looking a gift horse in the mouth and then pissing in the wind.
