Oh, look. It’s US Open week. Let the fluffing begin.
And away we go.
Today the top story is that Tiger won the tournament a long time ago.
If Tiger wins this week, that will be the top story. If he finishes 30th, the story will be that he’s the reason the winner won. If we nuke Canada, the story will be how he played in Canada once.
If Jesus returns, the story will be that he came back to watch Tiger.
And now, the daily wagering proposition: if Tiger isn’t in first after the third round, how many paragraphs into the ESPN recap will you have to read to find out who’s leading?
Official S&R over/under: 3½.
