This weekend was a weekend of learning. What we learned is the more things change, the more things stay the same.
What we learned…
… Greg Norman is still the Joe Borowski of the PGA. I think everyone was rooting for The Shark to pull out the British Open. Norman entered the final round with a two stroke lead and a good chance to become the oldest golfer to ever win a major. Of course, everyone knew after the first three holes that wouldn’t happen. Bogey, bogey, bogey is not the way to start a final round. So we learned the Greg Norman is still Greg Norman and that golf, as much as it a chance yesterday to be a classic ending, needs Tiger for exciting majors. Ian Poulter tried to make it interesting but he was wearing pink pants. But congratulations to Padraig Harrington on becoming the first repeat Open champion that no one will remember in five years.
… Cy Young winners can come from the worst team. Cliff Lee is going to be the Cy Young winner unless he turns in to Greg Norman over the next two months. The Indians are horrible but Lee somehow continues to win games in impressive fashion. I know yesterday’s complete game was against the horrible Mariners but it was still a complete game win. That was Lee’s 13 win of the year. The team only has 43. That means Lee has 30% of the Indians win. Safe to say that’s the highest percentage in baseball. Imagine where the Tribe would be without him.
… As much as a woman tries to act like a man around men, she is a women, and will act like it. Danica Patrick is at it again. She caused another confrontation on pit row. This time she went up to the slowest driver, Milka Duno, before yesterday’s race. Not sure what was said, but like all women, Patrick refused to leave win Duno told her too and still didn’t leave when Duno threw a towel at her. Maybe Duno wasn’t throwing the towel to get her to leave, maybe he was throwing in the white towel saying, I can’t take this anymore; You win Danica; You are better than all of us. I’m sick of Danica parading around like she is the best thing to happen to racing since Busch Light. Why is she always confronting people in the pit? She’s not even good. People should be complaining about her and bitching about her driving. After all, we all know women are horrible drivers.
… Teamwork is key in winning a golf scramble. At the first annual Kimberly S. Denholmn Charities golf outing on Saturday, the team of J Beanie, Seal, Bub and JP, finished at nine-under. A very solid score. We had chances to be better than that but the golf gods were not looking down with smiles on us. I think it was because Seal and Bub refused to wear the purple and pink shirts I got for the team.
On a programming note; just a today, tomorrow and possibly Wednesday post for the week. Then it’s off to Orlando to catch up with the F and her family.
