John Smoltz has a request.  Four days after he qualified to play in this month's U.S. Senior Open, he wants everyone to understand how excited he is to achieve a dream he's had for more than a quarter century.

The Waverly legend was practically screaming after qualifying for the U.S. Senior Open.  Smoltz said it was even better than earning his first win in the major leagues.

John Smoltz earned the trip to the Senior Open on June 28 at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., after his longest day of golf.  The Detroit Free Press has more information.
