This Weekend While I Was Battling the Plague

I was sick all weekend which made me fairly miserable but also granted me total control of the bedroom television all day. I was able to enjoy the full weekend coverage of the British Open and the Tour de France which both turned out to be American triumphs. In my last post I covered the [...]

And Tiger Cried…

Tiger Woods finished off a masterful performance Sunday winning the British Open at -18 two stokes ahead of fellow American Chris DiMarco. Woods, in his trademark final round red shirt, tapped in for par on 18, pump his fist in the air and then walked over, embrace his caddie and broke down in tears. It [...]

Tiger on the Prowl; ABC Rejoices

Undoubtedly the sound of unbridle joy heard this morning was coming from ABC executives who are positively giddy over the fact that Tiger Woods is at the top of the leaderboard going into the network’s weekend coverage of the British Open. Tiger’s disappointing outing at the U.S. Open where he failed to make the cut [...]

Quote of the Day

From Michelle Wie after shooting a six-over 77 in the first round of the PGA’s John Deere Classic:

“It was very uncharacteristic,” she said. “Considering that I had the water hazard penalties, considering that I had to call unplayable, considering that I hit my driver like 50 yards right, I felt like I played really [...]

Trevor Hoffman’s Big Night

I have spent the morning trying to figure out what kind of extravagant gift the American League Champion will send San Diego’s Trevor Hoffman for essentially handing World Series home field advantage to the AL during the All Star Game last night. The National League was one out away from ending nine years of futility [...]

All Star Caliber Thoughts

Well, not really.

We have more insight into what drove France’s Zinedine Zidane to head butt Italy’s Marco Materazzi in the chest drawing a red card during the World (Non)Cup Final Sunday in Germany.

Well actually we have conflicting accounts, one which says Materazzi called Zidane “the son of a terrorist whore” and also told [...]

Since Bashing the French is Cool…

….I think I will join in. Italy beat France on penalty kicks or some such nonsense as that to win the World Cup which is not actually a cup but a golden ball on top of some golden stand. I mean the Stanley Cup is an actual cup but now we find out the World [...]

Hot Dog!

Having now fully recovered from my harrowing run-in with that woman at the NC State Fairgrounds I caught up on some news from the holiday weekend which included the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest. The champion eater in what can be described as the most grotesque display of gluttony known [...]

Fireworks at State Fairgrounds; Traffic Chaos Ensues

So for the Fourth of July, Tar Heel Fan took the Tar Heel Family out to the North Carolina State Fairgrounds to witness the most impressive fireworks display involving no more than two explosions at a time in the country. Of course extracting yourself afterwards is a complete disaster leading me to wonder why, after [...]

Changing Your Mind

During the N.C. State coaching search, one name that was bantered about was Gregg Marshall, head coach at Winthrop. Marshall had built a great low major program at Rock Hill with six NCAA appearances in eight years all via the automatic bid. Some thought he was ready for the move to the big stage at [...]
