High Noon Highlights: Gundy’s Birthday, Another Hype Video and Rickie Talks the PGA Championship

PGA: WGC - Bridgestone Invitational - Final Round Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Gundy’s Birthday:

Jake Trotter shared a story this morning by ESPN’s Ryan McGee:

This is a great read. Gundy and McGee reminisce on the famous "I’m a man, I’m 40!" speech almost 10 years later in Gundy’s office in Boone Pickens a few weeks after he was recognized by some non-Oklahoma State fans for the rant on a trip to the College World Series. Here’s a great quote from Gundy on his thoughts about the rant:

"I see that guy on that video and I see a guy who was going to work every single day with his fists clenched, feeling like he's gotta scrap for every single inch every single day," Gundy says now. He can't recall the last time he watched the clip voluntarily, but he doesn't have to. That stalking, shouting, pointing man is permanently embedded on the memory card of his mind. "Don't misunderstand, we're still fighting for everything we get around here. But if you could go back in time, I would want to put my arm around that guy and say, 'Hey dude, it's going to be OK.' Because here we are a decade later, and you know what?" Gundy pauses and points out the window of his office into the stadium below. "It is pretty OK, isn't it?"

Whether he likes it it or not, it's something he’s known for and probably will be known for for a long time. Now he’s a man! he’s 50!

Hype video:

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a sucker for a good hype video. Well today Joel dropped a hype video in our Slack message that I couldn't go without showing you guys. It’s from Alexander Beiersdorf on YouTube and it’s dope.

*Editor's note: The original video was pulled from YouTube. It was found on Twitter and embedded here. This is the original video, but you can not find it on YouTube any longer.

This guy makes these videos every year and they’re always solid. 3 WEEKS TILL FOOTBALL YA’LL WHOO GO POKES!

Rickie Fowler talks the PGA Championship:

Rickie Fowler fan account @rickielegion posted a video the PGA put out throwing it back to 2012 (long haired Rickie is the best Rickie) where the young golfer talks about his round that day at the championship. Then current Rickie talks about his expectations for this year.

Fowler starts his first round at 12:35 p.m. CST on TNT. Here’s his pairing:
