Weekend recap

June 22, 2009

Just one week ago we were laughing and talking about how the Penguins won the Stanley Cup. That seems like a distant memory now, and we must move on from that concert of luck to see what’s going on in the rest of the sports world. Oh and this effing rain can cut the shit and go away for a while. Like after July 11th.

1. Tiger Woods is not doing well (relatively) at Bethpage. As we speak, Lucas Glover and Ricky Barnes are through 1 and tied at -7. Update again at the end of this post. Mickelson is also not doing great, but he isn’t out of it yet, tied for 3rd at -2 through 2.

2. On a related note, our boy Drew Weaver made the cut on the second day, and currently t40 at +7. What? You want to make fun? You go +7 at Bethpage. No, don’t apologize to me, apologize to Drew. Dick.

3. Red Sox won. Yankees lost. Mets lost. Pirates played. Everyone was happy. Well not everyone, namely NY fans, but who the hell cares about them? Not me! I say. Sox take on your precious Nationals tonight, who seem to have a uncharacteristic winning streak of sorts going. Now the interesting thing here is who are the fairweather DC fans to root for? Their precious bandwagon Red Sox, or their suddenly “not craptacular” hometown Nationals? What to do, what to do? Aww hell, just root for the Caps, no one will know the difference.

4. Wimbledon opens today, yes we know this isn’t weekend news, but with baseball and golf being the only sports going on right now, it’s tough to get enough news here. Will Federer win? Yes. Nadal is gone due to injury, so who will beat him? Roddick? Blake? The Williams sisters? Ha!

5. The US advanced in the Confederations Cup by beating Egypt 3-nil. After the US got crushed by Italy and Brazil, the only way they could advance was by beating Egypt by (take a guess) 3 goals, AND Italy losing to Brazil by at least 3 goals. Guess how much Italy lost by. WRONG. Italy did in fact lose by 3 goals, and we get to go to the semis. Oh, I already said that so you probably did guess Italy lost by three. Sorry, you were right. My b.

6. US Open Update: Nothing has changed. These guys are making a liar out of me. Barnes and Glover are still through 1 tied at -7, Mickelson is through 2 at -2, and Woods is through 7 at E. Drew Weaver is through 10 at +7 overall and +2 on the day. Go Drew!
