Random Thoughts

°I watched some of the U.S. Open yesterday afternoon and today at lunch, at it is absolutely unbelievable to watch these pros who are usually amazing hack away out there. This course is so tough that ball are just going everywhere and its almost impossible to get an approach shot to stay on the green. I'm not a huge fan of golf but this is actually fun to watch because it makes them look like actual humans as opposed to robots who hit ridiculous shots reminding me that I suck at golf.

When Big Phil was asked what he was going to do after finishing his horrific round today he said, "Go back back and watch the carnage on tv." When asked if he was rooting for carnage he replied, "I don't have to, its just going to happen."

°Daris showed me this pretty cool artcle that ranks the top ten fighters for every division. Its kind of sad how much the quality of the heavyweight division has suffered. But on the bright side, James Toney made the top ten!

No division is more intriguing than the welterweights. I think the best case scenario would be Miguel Cotto attempting to defend his title against the winner of Antonio Margarito-Paul Williams, and maybe Sugar Shane Mosley after that. If those fights are exciting and generate some more interest it might be enough to lure Mayweather out of retirement. Or at least we can hope.

°Not that anyone really cares but the Giants are coming to Boston this weekend and the Red Sox are really struggling. Big Papi sums it up best when he says, "We haven't been hitting for shit."

°I'm going to be gone next week but the other contributors will still be posting articles, so check back regularly.
