Talking about the U.S. Open without Saying Anything About Golf
I know that the U.S. Open is going on, one of the four majors and probably the toughest test of golf in the world.
Well, that is exactly why there isn’t much to say about the golf – a few players have finished with just a smidge more birdies than bogeys, but most people are hovering around the 73-74 mark. Tiger shot 71, and if I was a betting man, I’d say Phil Mickelson will be done playing golf before signing his scorecard come Friday afternoon.
But, two things that are probably the most interesting subplots – Ian Poulter is probably the most interesting dresser in any sport. Think about it – some of the things he wears (check above photo) make Clinton Portis look like he sports Grandma’s Sunday best.
Also, look at this photo of Tiger Woods.
You say golfers aren’t athletes? You say that golf is in the same conversation as poker or bowling? Really? Does this guy look like a dude you’d pick on at the driving range? He’s ENORMOUS! When do you think “Balco” and “Double Bogey” begin to be found in the same sentences?
