Just about 40 games left in baseball's regular season, Ducks/LSU is 3 weeks from Saturday, great PGA Championship this weekend and the NFL is kicking into high gear. It's the time of the year where you feel the sports gods really love us.
I know the needle moves more with Tiger in there, but I didn't give him a 2nd thought on Saturday or Sunday as I focused on the guys who actually made it to the weekend. What more can you saw about the pressure of trying to finish a slam event late Sunday. Jason Dufner had played 15 thru 18 on Thursday thru Saturday in 3 under par with no bogeys. On Sunday he bogeyed 15, 16 and 17 before managing a par on 18 to force the playoff he'd lose to Keegan Bradley. Bradley, by the by, is the nephew of LPGA Hall of Famer Pat Bradley who won the career Grand Slam as a player. This was the kid's 1st major and now of course the knuckleheads will try to figure out when he's going to catch Jack as the greatest player ever like they did with Rory.
Usually when a story is scrolling and making the rounds, I'm all over it as I think it could surface as a topic for either Crunch Time or SportsTalk but if you heard me late Friday, I wasn't buying on the Texas A & M to the SEC. We might not be aware, but A & M/Texas is one of the great rivalries in all of sports. It's Lone Star State big. Was kind of surprised this had the legs it did. Much ado about nothing. ZZZZZZ! Enjoy your Monday.
