The World’s been robbed because of another archaic golfing rule

Posted August 15, 2009 by bsd987

I understand the rules are there for a reason, but sometimes the rules should be broken. Like, for instance, when breaking the rules gives us what everyone wants to see. Alright, Y.E. Yang probably doesn’t want the rules changed, and nothing against him, but there’s probably only a few dozen people outside of South Korea [...]

Derrick Thomas a Hall of Famer for his work off the field, too

Posted August 9, 2009 by bsd987

Let me level with you: I don’t know how to start this article. I don’t. I’ve thought about it all week, and you know, I just could not figure it out. Maybe I’m just not good enough at what I do, or maybe I’m just not good enough yet, either way, I couldn’t figure it [...]

No such thing as the “right time” to reinstate Pete Rose

Posted July 27, 2009 by bsd987

It’s that time of year again. Boy, I say that a lot.   A couple of players get inducted into the Hall of Fame; Andre Dawson and Dale Murphy don’t because they played one era before their accomplished were rendered obsolete; ESPN speculates on who will get in next year; someone mentions that Pete Rose [...]

Only One Person To Blame for Old Man Watson’s Defeat

Posted July 19, 2009 by bsd987

I’m sorry, Tom. I truly am. You were all set to win your record-equalling sixth Open Championship, and I screwed it up. I’m truly, truly sorry. At the same time, I’m still waiting for my thanks from Stewart Cink Had it not been for me; had I not abandoned my well-conceived final-round strategy of not [...]

Facebook is a secondary, not primary, news source

Posted July 7, 2009 by bsd987

Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com has made a crusade against Twitter, and I cannot say I blame him. What is Twitter other than 140 characters of bumbling idiocy masquerading as “tweets?” Okay, I have a Twitter account, or had, not sure anymore. I beat the fad by six months because a friend asked me to set [...]

NBC sets new low at Wimbledon

Posted July 4, 2009 by bsd987

NBC did it, again. Congrats, I did not think it was possible. After providing terrible coverage of Roland Garros, NBC had to one-up itself at Wimbledon. Sure, I’ll cut NBC some slack for airing matches on tape delay while equally important matches were going on live; I’m used to that by now. If I want [...]

Federer and Sampras the most prolific, not greatest, of all-time

Posted June 7, 2009 by bsd987

Well, he’s the best, the greatest, the champion of all time, the legend. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Let the babbling commence. NBC couldn’t stress the fact that Federer is the greatest of all time any more than I’m stressing the word “fact.”

Gimmicky Hole Still Just As Gimmicky as the Tiger Diagnosed It

Posted May 5, 2009 by bsd987

It’s that time of the year again, the time where you might actually watch a golf tournament that is not a major. I know, I know, you’ll watch when Tiger is in contention. And you’ll root for Tiger, or against him, or both, it does not matter. But in your eyes, if Tiger has a [...]
