Quote of the day
"I'm going to come back tonight and blow this hole up with dynamite.” -- Robert Garrigus, after blowing a 3-stroke lead on the final hole to lose the St. Jude Classic
I settled on the above Robert Garrigus quote as the quote of the day, but was tempted to go with this more hopeful one instead: “I play golf for a living. I'll be OK.”.
The question I have, however, is “Why did Garrigus have that big wet spot on the seat of his pants?” Sweat, I assume. In that case, he probably should have worn black.
But I digress. In GuruGolf, a pair of teams tied for the top best ball score of -47, while a pair of teams also tied for the top worst ball score, although they were both managed by the same person (and curiously, had only one golfer in common.) In addition, here are the winners of the "Spring to the Open" contest, spanning all tournaments between the Masters and the U.S. Open:
Best ball: Balrog
Worst ball: Ping Me
I didn’t watch any of the US-England World Cup game live, but I did see the replay of the U.S. goal. Two of my three kids played quite a bit of goalie in their soccer playing days, and I’m quite sure I’ve seen them both make similar muffs. Of course, neither of them was asked to play on a national team. As someone mentioned in the RotoGuru message forum, the English goalie can think his lucky stars that he doesn’t play for the Colombian team.
