|1 week 6 days ago||Meh||
Of course not horrible, but I was expecting a better effort. Maybe that's not fair. It was a wonderful tribute, but still leaves me waiting for more.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Final 4||
Just trying to sneak this in somewhere, so that I can harken back to it later. I think we get the 8 seed, upset the 1 in round 2, and take their seed, Irvin comes alive, and Walton and Wagner go bananas in taking us to the final 4. Sound too crazy?!?. Crazy, yes, but not insane. The offense is becoming wicked good!
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Unreal!||
So good. What a match!
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Breaks back!!!||
Nobody's better, when he doesn't think so much
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Huge point!||
Fed's last stand
|12 weeks 2 days ago||And that'll do it boys||
Nadal just too much. Roger's heading swimming as always.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Violent momentum swings||
Danger time now for Roger. Ridiculous point from Nadal!
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Huge!||
By far the best set he's played against Rafa that I can remember. Taking his backhand earlier is making all the difference. Nadal's tried and true game plan isn't working so far. I'd still say Fed has to get this 4th set. Hard to bet against Rafa in the 5th.

Both guys bringing it now
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Wicked cross court backhand||
Fed starting to roll a bit
|12 weeks 2 days ago||!!!!!!!||
Roger with an insane half volley winner from the baseline to get a break point, and gets the early break in the 3rd. Now, can he consolidate?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Damn. You're right.||
Huge few aces there, but we've seen this refrain before. Nadal just relentlessly stays in points until Roger makes the error in the biggest spots. At least he held.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Not yet my friend!||
I love him too, and worry about that as well, but he seems a bit more free than usual against Rafa.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think so||
I know his psyche is so fragile against Nadal, but if the forehand is the problem, he should be able to regroup. Great break there!
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Fed's famous forehand is a mess so far||
Crazy that his backhand is money so far, and he's hitting unforced errors all over the place with his moneymaker. You can almost take a quick nap for the second set, knowing Rafa will tie up the match going into the 3rd.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Huge for Fed to get the first set||
Had to get the first set. I get so nervous when Nadal just keeps pounding those high balls to Roger's backhand, but Fed's handling them well so far.

Golf lesson for my 11 year old daughter, then sitting down with her to let her finally enjoy one of these games! Go Blue
|33 weeks 4 days ago||moneyline plays||
For what it's worth, play the moneyline guys. Those are the only plays I ever woried about back in the day. 11 for 10 will never win long run. Never. 3 team, moneyline parlays timed out, for the late games, with hedges, drive bookies insane. Or so I've heard.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Good grief!||
All of you kids still at school, please go get laid. All of them. Don't judge if it's a good idea or if they are hot enough. Just do it. You'll be 45, like tomorrow, and you'll think all of em are hot.. Because they are! Just bang em. Bang em all.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Hmm. Married I see?||
Sex is stupid
|34 weeks 3 days ago||Yost is right||
I think it could have been presented better.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Thx XtraMelanin||
Finally 5:30 now, so I can start getting ready without my wife thinking I'm too, too, too much of a lunatic!
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you. Golf is an amazing game.||
My favorite thing is when she shakes me off a 7, and asks for the 8. I sit and wonder at how she became so self sufficient!
|50 weeks 2 days ago||Congrats to coach Dowling and the girls.||
This would seem unfathomable only a month ago. Well done! My daughter is over the moon!

It's becoming like a U.S. Open out there. Going to be so fun to watch.

Go ahead and pencil in some championship points for Women's golf in 2023, when my daughter gets there.

That was my High School. We come with a hard edge in those parts! Hope we get him.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||My Dad won it for me||
I invited my semi retired dad to be my assistant coach a number of years ago. I thought it would be something we could talk about and do together. Of course he slowly took over the whole thing, and I only pay attention in the playoffs, but I must say the guy is kind of a savant. He cashed again for me and brought home the trophy this year!

Well done, Ace!
I'm a bit older than you, so my throw it in the air and imagine memories are of Anthony Carter, but I have a faintly amusing story for the Woodson tribute.. I was living in Columbus in 95. Kirk Herbstreit had a radio show that was actually pretty good. He was just getting sideline jobs back then and had yet to become an ESPN star. For some reason I called in the week of The Game to tell him that an upset was possible. OSU was an offensive juggernaut that year, but I thought we may be able to run it on them a bit. I then told him about our stud freshman that would shadow Terry Glenn. He knew not of Mr. Woodson yet, but his quote was " If you put a freshman out on an island with Terry Glenn, it will get really ugly, really quick!" ...I made it up for that game, and I remember chants of "Eddie,Eddie,Eddie" everywhere in our Ann Arbor bars the night before the game. Needless to say, the trip back down 23 was so wonderful that year! Biakabutuka was amazing, but I'll always remember that game as the day that Charles became my favorite Wolverine.
