Tiger got "Munson'ed" by the officials (Although I like the new "Mickelsoned"). Part of me is still perturbed by the fact that a Johnny Armchair can call in and affect the tournament that much. Their input needs to be limited to the authenticity of the indigenous bird noises. I'm a sore Tiger fan.
The other part of me is glad he didnt win, because sweet Oden's raven, could you have imagined the backlash and asterisk talk that would have filled the air if he had won regardless of the penalty. The golf snob purists on the Golf Channel were making me sick with their talk regarding him withdrawing as a gentleman surrounding such controversy. Dude just got caught with his hand in the "nookie jar", you really think he is concerned with maintaining his gentlemanly status over a golf rule? Uhhh...not so much.
What did a 74 win you in the Masterly Masterson Contest? One year free subscription to the 5@10? Really? Youre the best.
I think the television viewers input on the tournament should be limited to busting CBS's chops on playing non-indigenous bird noises during the telecast. Johnny Armchair should never have the ability to incite a re-review that affects the outcome of this tournament this much. And how do any of these "officials" still have their jobs after this? Shenanigans. If Tiger loses this tournament by two or less strokes I may never eat another Pimento Cheese Sammich. Baseball should follow suit and allow a text message based tally system to determine strikes and balls in between pitches. Basketball could do the same thing to determine if its a flagrant one and two.
Saturday post with only the post cut contest update would be really cool, but might not be justified with the time consumption for your part. I am sure your days are pretty full with dipping pimento cheese sandwiches in your beer while aimlessly wandering between the pines, or at least thats what i'd be doing while screaming "Get in the hole!"
JMC- No soup for you.
"So I got that going for me, which is nice."
"Your uncle molests collies."
"The crowd has gone deadly silent, Cinderella story, outta nowhere, a former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a miracle....It's in the hole, It's in the hole."
"You'll get nothing and like it!"
"Welcome to The Faces for Radio Show, hosted by TFP Football Ace, David Paschall, and the other guy, Blockhead Greeson." Were you waiting to see who the first person to drop that one was? Are you bumping Van Peezy and the Riz from our listening pleasure? Big shoes to fill. I hope you have been polishing up on your witty banter and obscure Maryland Crabcake references, cause they were my source of fulfillment for both of those things.
This question made me oddly gloom, but Geno is going to surpass Pat. He is probably a better coach when measured by success and eventually wins. Some of her early efforts likely paved the way for much of his successes in the sport though and it doesn't make her any less of a legend in the sport that he will pass her. Its not as though his program is churning out better woman than Tennessee did in her time, despite the fact that they may have had some more jewelry.
I'll take Schwartzel, Luke Donald, Jason Dufner, and Tiger for the win. Jay, with you being a fellow Auburn grad with Dufner, what are your thoughts on the new trend of "Dufnering"? Has the photo op phenomenon swept into the TFP offices yet? If he were to win the Masters this weekend it could catapult it up there with the likes of Tebowing, planking, and various other things people regret doing in public.
Many people's perception is skewed by the color of the Kool-Aid they choose to drink. The Vern and Gary theory is funny stuff. But remember, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you...
Are we allowed to talk about "the spice" or "fanj" on a FOIB column?
My generation's mental projection of the 80's is not likely the most accurate portrayal of what was the reality back then. That is unless of course you spent most of your time wearing leg warmers, something neon, had a red Devo hat on top of your perm, and marched around singing "You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind...." And that song goes on my list of one.
The Bull's "Ding the King" theory seemed to be effective. You dont see Lebron lose his cool too often, like he did attempting to truck Boozer intentionally. That being said, you would just hope he doesnt develop the "Rocky Syndrome" where you beat him around for 3/4 of the game and then he gets mad enough to unleash the beast within. "Lebron angry, Lebron smash!"
Watched the Rutger coach video at lunch, understandable firing, but it got me thinking. I experienced a few tongue lashings in my day. Dont remember any that brought my sexual preference into question, but profanity was being thrown around in copious amounts many times. I also remember being redirected by the back of my jersey a hand full of times as well. We use to run a drill in soccer practice that involved freshman being in the wall for direct kicks and not a whole lot of those balls made it past the wall....almost intentionally you might say.... So am I a victim? I dont feel like one. Are the slurs what really got him fired? Probably was a pretty big chunk. Should our coach have been fired for having his players blast balls at us instead of the himself? Why didnt I feel much remorse four years later when the kicked became the kicker? Possibility of hazing? Wussification of America? Any similar experiences? Thoughts?
Spy, I have seen the Joe T break many times, and in pulling it up to watch it, I was anticipating the horror because it already happened, you knew it was coming. My list was compiled of ones I saw live, where you're watching along, watching along, watching along, SNAP, oh my God...(new guys in the corner puking his guts). The ones I experienced on the field were memorable because everyone quickly gravitated towards the injured players only to turn and run away from them at twice the speed screaming for help. Doctor! Mommy! Somebody!
For all you sadomasochists out there, the video of the leg break was on Youtube within minutes of happening and is still on there for your sick and twisted viewing pleasure. They were talking about it on the radio this morning on my way to work and I felt genuine stomach sickness. Having been first hand witness to a couple of those in my playing days I cant handle hearing of another without wincing in reminiscence. Wherever you are Westminster soccer player whose shin bone was poking out of your sock, you still haunt me...
It enters my Rushmore with McGahee, Lattimore, and Corey Hill of the UFC who leg kicked a fella, went to replant on said leg, and there was no more leg to be had, it had been placed by a noodle. Theismann doesn't make my list because I hadn't been born yet, but he gets an honorable gag reflex.
