If you're looking for a topic this week.. Sergio (stupid Sergio) got me thinking about the Top Five (or is it bottom five?) golfers who failed to live up to their true potential. I was thinking Sergio, Daly, Norman, and Michelle Wie, but I couldn't come up with a fifth name. Any suggestions?
Jay - put me down for the Dale Earnhardt Inc franchise. I think it's worth a couple bucks. Top 5 list for next week - name your top 5 non traditional sporting events you would like attend in person. Have a good vacation.
Jay - got just a moment between lunch and my next meeting to read the 5 at 10. I'm no expert, but I think you've got to put Patsy Cine on any country music Rushmore. Don't know who you drop, but Patsy set the standard for females followed by Loretta Lynn.
Jay - in the contest. Orb to win and Fear the Kitten in last.
Jay - just finished watching 30 for 30. Elway to Marino. Loved it. Tom Selleck was an awesome narrator. Didn't realize the rumors about Marino before the draft. I wonder how serious Elway was about the Yankees and how successful he might have been in baseball if the Colts had not traded him. Marino was statistically a great QB, but as a GA Tech friend of mine used to say about Eric Zeier at UGA, "statistics are for losers."
Jay - been busy. Loved, Loved, LOVED the Masters. Extra holes in the rain. Anything could have happened. Congrats to A Scott. I told you to watch out for Sergio. Maybe one of the three remaining majors will be his. For the mailbag. Yes, I know it's late. There's a fairly big bike race coming to town next month. Is the TFP going to do anything to help educate their readers about the event and who and what to look for during the event? I saw some riders checking out the course recently near the VW plant, so it appears the riders are taking it seriously. Will Chattanooga?
Jay - I told you to watch out for Sergio. I shoulda picked him in the contest. Stupid Sergio...
Jay - Friday mailbag query...Rushmore of Masters experience? Put me down for the Par-3 Tourney, pimento cheese sandwiches, skipping balls across the pond at 16 during practice rounds, and the awesome in its awesomeness of the grounds.
Jay - I know nothing of this gentleman's club establishment that the entire 5 at 10 crew refers to. As W.C. Fields stated once, "I wouldn't join a club that would have me as a member." That being said, it's my opinion that the ugly state of basketball has something to do with the officiating. Allowing muggings on the court and then getting all ticky tacky drives me away from watching on the flat screen more often than anything else. Put me down for Lee Westwood, Adam Scott, Bo Van Pelt, Justin Rose, and Fred Couples in the Masters contest. Freddie is ranked 503 in the World Golf Rankings, but he's finished in the top 20 the last 3 tournaments. Watch our for Sergio though...
Jay - I realize it's last minute but if you have time for the mailbag...if you had an unlimited budget and Mrs Fiver had no veto power, what's your Rushmore of cars you'd like to park in your driveway? Put me down for Magnum's Ferrari, a Mini Cooper, a 1956 Vette (ragtop), and the Batmobile (just for fun).
