Finally, a NBA Finals game with some drama and tension.
And don't call it a comeback!
My four shooters - Bird (duh), Reggie Miller, Mark Price and here's one a little off the board, and just for you, 5 - The Rifleman, Chuck Person
The Braves have struck out 12 times through six innings of game one today. That's 12 more strikeouts than hits right now.
I've lost two friends to ALS in the last year and a half. The Mayhem in the AM crew can go ... you know what.
5, I hate to tell you this, but I think Hargis got you last night in the battle of the suits. He wins on points. Not a knockout.
Phil might win another PGA, maybe another Masters. His British Open record is mediocre, a T3 and a 2 (runner-up to Darren Clarke and that was an emotional Open Championship for the gregarious Mr. Clarke) and that's it. Phil might win at Pinehurst next year but if he doesn't take that U.S. Open, he might not get another chance. The Open returns to Shinnecock and Pebble Beach in 2018-19 and Winged Foot in 2020 and he's played well at all three. But he'll be 48, 49 and 50 by then.
Woods has won twice at St. Andrew's, twice at Medinah and two U.S. Opens in California. The British Open is at Royal Liverpool next year (where Woods won) and St. Andrews the following year. He might win at Valhalla in next year's PGA. But the way he played at Memorial and this past weekend, he's nowhere near winning another major.
5, you know Johnny Football is going to be great leading the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to a Grey Cup title.
I don't know that my octopus pants would go well with my killer whale shirt. Kind of a clash there.
Worst SEC coach or worst coach period? Because I could go all Brad Scott at South Carolina, Bill Lewis at Georgia Tech and Gerry Faust at ND. Met Faust one day. Nice guy. Bad coach.
You want to know what's not fun?
Trying laying on the pavement of a south Georgia parking lot with your head under a co-worker's van, trying to find the kitten that's crawled up into the undercarriage. That ... is not fun.
What's got me brain-freezed is three overtimes and a double deflection fluke goal at the end. Son of a ... heynow.
As 5 knows, I know a college head coach who happens to be a fair golfer on the side and we discussed slow play one day. His take? I'll give the redacted (i.e., FOIB) version, particularly on how long collegiate golfers take to line up a putt. "What are they looking at? How long does it take to line up a putt?"
Mind you, this is from somebody whose handicap was once down to a 2.
