U. S. Open - Strokes, Pokes and Notes

A hacker's perspective of the U.S. Open:

  • Bethpage Black-best golf course name ever; take note thrash metal bands
  • NBC = all Tiger, all the time
  • how can a commentator say "that putt was perfectly struck" when it didn't go in?
  • Johnny Miller busted Al Roker's chops.
  • Phil M's pinstrip britches were cool.
  • I've seen better putting on a public course in Richardson.
  • Pro golfers (I'm looking at you, Tiger) dropping the f-bomb lowers your Q rating; asking your god to damn something you just did moves you to "within the leather" of hell.
  • Sound bites of the day - "just drop the club on it and poop it out", "hope he's not starting to leak oil", "how many balls to these guys have", "we're waiting on Tiger to finish so we can signoff".
  • Fantasy Twitter: thetiger @coach_butch you gotta opening? Need help, miss you.
  • I may be the only guy in the universe to have picked Tiger to NOT finish in the top ten, how'd that work out? (written on Sunday evening)
  • USGA...why not play the full eighteen on Monday?
  • Anyone else think Verve! is a sparkling wine?
  • Best golf story of the Open = David Duval
