Quick, If You're At Home, Put on the Golf Channel -- Phil Mickleson is Two Birdies Away from a 58

Jan 31, 2013 12:16 PM PT

Would be the first 58 in PGA history. He's in range for the first of the two birdies.

Update: Damnit, he shorted it, I think he's trying for par now from inches away. 

Sorry, looks like I put out an alert and it's not going to happen.
 
Okay, so unless he gets an eagle (two under par on a par 4) he can't do it.  A birdie now gets him 59, par gets 60.

Dr. Phil: Te'o hoaxer 'deeply, romantically in love' with Te'o

Jan 30, 2013 1:04 PM PT

So, Dr. Phil is now doing what Dr. Phil does best: injecting maudlin romance into a pathetic and degraded story. According to Dr. Phil, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who pretended to be a woman in order to seduce Notre Dame star Manti Te’o online, then hoaxed Te’o into claiming that this fake girlfriend had died of leukemia, was “deeply, romantically in love” with Te’o. Said Dr. Phil: “I asked him straight up, ‘Was this a romantic relationship with you?’ And he says yes. I said, ‘Are you then therefore gay?’ And he said, ‘When you put it that way, yes.’ And then he caught himself and said, ‘I am confused.’”

The attempt to grant airtime to a pathetic specimen of humanity has become knee-jerk with the media. Tuiasosopo is a twisted individual no matter how you slice it. Had Te’o been a female and had Tuaisosopo masqueraded as a male and pursued the same shtick, there is little doubt that the media would label Tuaisosopo a predator. But in true Jim McGreevey fashion, claiming you’re gay rights all wrongs and makes you a victim rather than a perpetrator.

Emasculating America

Jan 27, 2013 7:09 PM PT

Discouraging scorekeeping wasn’t enough for high-minded elites looking to bring fairness to the competitive world of little league football. No. The crusade to diminish the meanness that comes with losing is out. In is the question of whether America’s moral standing is made moot by our passionate devotion to the dangerous game of football.

Showboating

In response to Why are journalists ignoring Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk?:

Regardless of where one stands on the marriage issue, I think the coaches and team mates of Brendon Ayabadejo are the people who should really be angry.  Birk, on the other hand, made his views known, but doesn't seem to view his participation in the Super Bowl as a stage for anything other than playing football.  Ayabadejo basically told the world he wants to use the Super Bowl to further his political beliefs.  It's pure showboating that does nothing to actually help his team win the game.  If a player said he wanted to use the spotlight to do anything other than win the Super Bowl I would bench him. 

Why are journalists ignoring Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk?

Rhetorical question, as they'd clearly rather debate linebacker Brendon Ayabadejo's supposedly controversial view in favor of gay marriage (in a state that has already passed it) than draw attention to the fact that Baltimore center (and Harvard alum, and future Hall of Fame candidate) Matt Birk is for traditional marriage--a truly risky view.
