The B/B Podcast - Phil Mickelson's Rally, Mariano Rivera's Greatness and Ryan Braun's Suspension

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we discuss Phil Mickelson's spectacular final round performance en route to his first ever British Open title, the legacy of 13-time All-Star Mariano Rivera, and the 65-game suspension handed down to Ryan Braun by Major League Baseball!

- Lefty's Round For the Ages: Phil Mickelson shot a 5-under 66 on Sunday to rally from five strokes back and win his first ever British Open championship. How did the 5-time major winner manage to overcome both the competition and fierce winds of Muirfield Golf Links to accomplish the feat? We break it down.

- Super Mariano: We look back at the stellar career of New York Yankee great Mariano Rivera, and tell you all the things that have come to make him the greatest closer in the history of baseball.

- Braun's Luck Runs Out: Last year, Ryan Braun avoided a 50-game suspension for use of PEDs on what was essentially a technicality. On Monday, his luck finally ran out, as Bud Selig announced the former NL MVP was banned from play for the remainder of the season for his ties to a biogenesis lab in Florida. What does this do to Braun's image moving forward, and will the steroid era ever truly come to an end in Major League Baseball? Hear our take.


We discuss whether or not Jason Garrett is really on the hot seat heading into this season, regardless of what owner Jerry Jones is saying publicly, and debate how right (or wrong) ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski's 2013 QB rankings are!

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
