Golf influencer Isabelle Shee, sister team up on new project

The next move for golf influencer Isabelle Shee is a sister act.

Isabelle — also known as “Sock Girl” to her 154K Instagram followers — is veering in a new direction with her younger sister Kat, as the duo is behind the emerging YouTube channel “Shee Golfs.” Featuring an array of golf-centric vlogs, the idea for the siblings to join forces creatively came about during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“My sister and I were just quarantining together and the only thing we could do while quarantining was to play golf and take cute photos and film silly videos together,” Kat recently told The Post. “So we started off one day just going to a golf course and just filming a golf vlog together.”

Kat, 22, who played golf for four years at St. John’s University in New York, said she and Isabelle, 25, later added their footage to YouTube and were stunned by the response.

“It really took off. It got like 130K views on our first video, and it was so surprising to us, and we were like, ‘Wow, that’s really cool,’ and we can actually turn it into something big potentially,” Kat said.

With over 18K subscribers and counting, Isabelle and Kat’s YouTube channel includes videos such as “The 4 Emotions of Golf” to “Breaking Putts Made Simple,” as well as cameos from their “Golf Sister” friends, Tisha Alyn and Maiya Tanaka.

Strategizing content for their channel, however, is more strenuous in comparison to Instagram.

“To plan content on YouTube, it takes a lot of effort and a lot of editing versus Instagram. You can just take really quick swing videos and nice photos, and you can really plan that out,” Isabelle said.

“I personally would not have been able to do YouTube alone cause it’s just so much work, and so, it’s really refreshing to be on this journey together with Kat because we literally spent our childhood together on the golf course and to be able to relive that as adults is really cool,” she continued. 

Although golf content is the current focus, Isabelle and Kat hope to eventually segue into different areas of interest. 

“We have very similar goals, so we’ve always wanted to showcase our passion for golf just because it’s really been the platform we’ve had and it’s been such a big part of our lives, but I think we both agree that we want to expand out of golf,” Isabelle said, noting the process is gradual.

“We started off with just golf vlogs. We start at the golf course, and then we start incorporating maybe a two-minute thing that starts at the beginning of the video that’s of us getting there, in the car, and then after that, we start expanding, ‘what you eat before you go,’ and ‘what you make,’ and then you start incorporating more of your life into it. And I think that’s part of the reason why we’ve been able to slowly grow out of golf instead of it being so abrupt,” she continued.

No matter where the next chapter leads them, Isabelle and Kat are enjoying the creative journey together.

“We didn’t spend that much time together in the last four years cause she [Kat] really was at school, and sometimes, more social media, I feel like it’s hard to motivate yourself and just hold yourself accountable, but with us, we always divvy up the work and bounce ideas off of each other, and we really just make sure we have consistent videos coming out,” Isabelle said.

“It’s really nice to have that teamwork,” she added.

Bob Baffert banned from entering Medina Spirit in Belmont Stakes

Bob Baffert banned from entering Medina Spirit in Belmont Stakes

The New York Racing Association (NYRA) on Monday banned Medina Spirit trainer Bob Baffert from entering horses in races or stabling them at Belmont Park, Saratoga Race Course or Aqueduct Racetrack.

That means Medina Spirit, which won a now-contested Kentucky Derby and finished third in the Preakness Stakes, will not run in the Belmont Stakes on June 5. NYRA said its final determination for the length and terms of Babbert’s suspension depends on whether Churchill Downs receives a second test confirming an initial positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone for the horse on the day of the Derby.

That would also invalidate Medina Spirit’s first-place finish in the first leg of the Triple Crown.

“In order to maintain a successful thoroughbred racing industry in New York, NYRA must protect the integrity of the sport for our fans, the betting public and racing participants,” NYRA President and CEO Dave O’Rourke said in a statement. “That responsibility demands the action taken today in the best interests of thoroughbred racing.”

Medina Spirit was allowed to run the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course after passing three pre-race drug tests. Baffert, who did not attend the Preakness Stakes on Saturday, has five medication-involved violations over the past 13 months. NYRA said its decision also took into account other horses trained by Baffert that produced failed tests in thoroughbred races in Arkansas, California and Kentucky.

Craig Robertson, who represents Baffert, told the Associated Press that he will review NYRA’s decision and discuss the situation with his client before making any formal statement.

Adam Sandler spotted dropping dimes in pick-up basketball game, earns respect of NBA Twitter

Adam Sandler spotted dropping dimes in pick-up basketball game, earns respect of NBA Twitter

Now starting at point guard: Happy Gilmore.

Actor and comedian Adam Sandler is a massive hoops fan; his love for basketball has a tendency to make it into his movies, and he’s actually pretty good, too. Or, at least, better than your average YMCA hooper.

In videos that surfaced on Monday, Sandler reminded folks of that. Showing up in a polo shirt and shorts that were maybe three or four sizes too big, Sandler dropped a couple of beautiful passes to teammates and set the internet on fire.

Unfortunately for Sandler, a few of the on-point passes were actually bricked, even with wide-open looks. Such is the life of pick-up games.

Sandler is an avid Knicks fan who can be found courtside at New York games, often with fellow superfan Spike Lee. Sandler starred in 2019’s “Uncut Gems” portraying a gambling addict and jewelry store owner who gets into deep water with Kevin Garnett over a bet placed on the 2012 Eastern Conference semifinals between the Celtics and the 76ers.

Needless to say, Sandler’s attire and play caught the eye of NBA Twitter

If Sandler can keep this up, maybe he’ll start at point guard for the Knicks in 2021-22.

Watch an indy wrestler get crotch set on fire, run for life in spot gone wrong

Watch an indy wrestler get crotch set on fire, run for life in spot gone wrong

A couple of independent wrestlers changed the definition of “getting heat” over the weekend.

Independent wrestling is still the wild west of the grappling scene, with plenty of promotions across the country continuously pushing the envelope between extreme and stupidity.

The latest example: indy wrestler and veteran stuntman JJ Allin getting his nether-regions lit on fire, with his opponent stoking the flames with a weed whacker. Yes, that is an actual sentence that was written in 2021.

The spot, which took place under the Pro Wrestling Trainwreck banner during the 2021 Southern Sickness Cup, was caught on video and was eerily (and frighteningly) reminiscent of the ’90s ECW days.

(Warning: Video and tweets contain disturbing images and offensive language.)

Allin took to Facebook not long afterward to say that he was doing just fine — well, relatively, at least. Allin said he had second-degree burns on his legs, and that the main issue was that his water crew wasn’t where it should have been.

Allin also said that the promoter or organization shouldn’t be held at fault for the spot gone wrong.

Other photos from the event include gallons of blood shed, dozens of light tubes destroyed and a general reminder that pro wrestling is not fake. The preferred vernacular is “scripted.”

And another friendly reminder: If you are ever set on fire at an independent wrestling event, stop, drop and roll is the suggested method of fire deterrent — not a weed whacker.
