SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Phil Mickelson is celebrating his first PGA Tour victory of the year with a wire-to-wire win in the Phoenix Open that included an opening-round 11-under 60. Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 to finish at 28-under 256, two strokes off the PGA Tour record set by Tommy Armour III in the 2003 Texas Open.

The Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl champs after holding off the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31 last night in New Orleans. Ravens quarterback was the game’s Most Valuable Player after passing for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns. Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones added a 56-yard TD reception and a 108-yard kickoff return for a score and the longest play in Super Bowl history.

Anheuser [[ ANN-HYE-zur ]] Busch had the best commercial in last night’s Super Bowl broadcast, according to “USA Today’s” Ad Meter.  The ad with a heart-warming storyline of the bond between a trainer and the Budweiser Clydesdale he raised narrowly edged Procter & Gamble’s Tide ad, in the online survey of more than 76-hundred panelists.  The Tide commercial shows a salsa stain that looks like Niners legend Joe Montana on a San Francisco fan’s jersey.  The fan’s wife, a Baltimore Ravens fan, washes out the stain, and maybe the Niners’ chances since they lost.
