Quote of the day
"Poor Elin must be shaking her head ruefully, texting [Scott] McCarron to say: 'You don’t know what cheating is, homeboy.' " -- Yahoo sports writer Brian Murphy, commenting on MaCarron’s accusation that Phil Mickelson’s use of pre-1990 Ping wedges is “cheating”
The calendar has lapped over to February, and perhaps the biggest incoming developments in fantasy hoops are the injuries to Carlos Boozer and Chris Paul. Boozer’s is only a hamstring strain, but his past history suggests that his recuperative powers are not well developed. Paul’s is a cartilage tear in his left knee, with surgery required. The public prognosis is that he’ll be out for "one to two months." It’s worth noting that the regular season only lasts for another 2˝ months. Those who took Paul as the opening pick in their roto draft last fall are now hurtin’ puppies.
The GuruGolf preseason tournament seems to have run smoothly. More than 100 teams were entered. But all that is now moot, as rosters have been cleared, trades have been reset, and the season now begins “for keeps”. Get you team set up and your foursomes in place by Thursday morning’s tee time.
