Great weekend: fun evening with Meg and Matt, followed by a pool party this afternoon. Now, watching golf and playing w/Powerpoint.
I’m sure I shouldn’t say this, but I can’t help myself: I’m very disappointed in the way the PGA Championship ended. I’m a huge homer. I admit it. I root for the Tigers, the Lions, the Pistons, and the Red Wings because I grew up in Detroit. I root for Michigan State because I went to school there. I root for Duke for the same reason (as long as they’re not playing against Michigan State). I’ve even started rooting for the Huskers.
Basically, I want the home team to win. And, in golf, I think of Tiger Woods as the home team. I don’t want a sentimental underdog story. I don’t want a triumph over adversity. I just want to see the best golfer in the world, golfing to the best of his ability. I actually like it best when he wins by a mile.
So to watch Tiger drop the lead to Y.E. Yang because his putting was just terrible…well, that made me sad. When you win two weeks in a row and you hold the lead for four days AND you’re Tiger Woods, then you don’t lose to Y.E. Yang. No sir.
