    Judges order John Daly to pay damages

    You know when John Daly crops up in this blog it won't be good news. Well, maybe one day. But until hell freezes over, have some typical Daly bad-luck/self destruction.

    The big hitting golfer was ordered this week to pay the nearly $272,000 in legal expenses for his unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against the Times-Union and its parent company.

    Daly sued Morris Publishing Company, the newspaper, and former columnist Mike Freeman for a 2005 column that accused him of smacking women and a general thug lifestyle.

    He turned down a $5,000 settlement proposal from the newspaper, a reasonable offer in light of the facts, Carithers said in his order.
