Chip off the ol' block by Rocky


Tiger sat down with Scott Van Pelt for one of the more candid interviews I have ever heard regarding Woods and insight into his life. Woods for the first time I can truly remember came off what sports fans may consider "arrogant". For the most part I believe Tiger has been more on the invisible side then the in your face Barry Bonds/Curt Schilling/TO athlete who demands you pay attention, most of the time by throwing a tantrum with or through the media. Tiger has his quirks on the course, plays head games with his competition much like Jordan or Deon Sanders once did, but besides marrying his hottie babysitter, we know little about the man...again compared to these other men and sometimes women who insist we turn the cameras on every time they breathe. No Tiger has always been good with us, good with the fans, good with the country. (OK I know he went off on someone for clicking his camera phone during his backswing, but that's another rant altogether...Lets leave it at this, if the guy didnt stick up for himself, who am I to?) But he came out and said he has to bet on himself, he IS better than Jack, and 19 is more important than 100... And here we are again, ready to miss work to watch him play, something in the past reserved for the NCAA's. It's a sign we havent seen so far and I tell you this...if he has been playing this well without this chip, I fear for Rory and the rest of 'em!

A Love Jones

And with the power vested in me..I now pronounce you...Pacman and wife. Yes...that Pacman! The proverbial "wife" in this saga turned circus are the Tennessee Titans, and this has all the makings of a classic love story. Let's be honest, we've all heard the sayings...opposites attract...nice guys finish last...and all work and no play makes you...well..the Titans. Maybe it was the super bowl that got away. Maybe it was the sting of dating Kevin Dyson instead of Randy Moss..(yes..that Randy Moss!) What ever the reason, she just couldn't help herself when given the chance of finally going steady with that bad boy. You know the guy..the one who is spontaneous and electrifying...mysterious and misunderstood. I can hear the Titans now as they chose their mate.."I know he's rough around the edges but he'll change for me. All he needs is a structured environment and some encouragement." (sound familiar?) So numbers are exchanged and vows are made. She's so in love that that either she can not see or refuses to see the obvious warning signs. Friends and family voice their concerns only to be turned away by the same response..."Just give it time. I know he'll change for me. He loves me!" Foolish pride will not allow her to admit that she's made a terrible mistake and who could blame her? The most devastating words to the human psyche are "I told you so." Trapped, embarrassed, and betrayed, she has no choice but to utter those deadly relationship words..."I think we should see other people." I'm sure she though her ultimatum would trigger that never before seen remorseful side of Pacman...but oh no...not this bad boy. Not only does he oblige her request, he has the audacity to tell anyone who would listen about the new object of his affection...enter the Dallas Cowboys. Now, being that it's the Cowboys is bad enough with their cocky cavalier attitude, but to make matters worse..they are just as vocal in saying the feeling is mutual. The nerve of this guy!! Whether she admits it or not, a feeling of jealousy and resentment must be festering on the inside as he nonchalantly moves on to the next girl. I mean c'mon...any body but the Cowboys...those home wreckers?!? This messy breakup has become so public that any though of a reconciliation is out the door...right? "Go ahead...you can have Dallas" says the jilted lover.."but I'm taking back everything...and I mean EVERYTHING I ever gave you before you do!" (sound familiar?) So here we are...maybe one day they'll kiss and make up. I doubt it but hey...we've all done that before.

Can we get a blog post about how absolutely horrible of a call was made by the replay ref in the BC/Notre Dame hockey championship game Saturday night? If Charles Barkley had been in the booth, he would have said the ref's reversal was a "turrible" call.

How could you waste so much of your precious free time on that degenerate?

He is a bum, it didnt take arrest number 19 for me to figure that out, it shouldnt have taken that long for anyone else to come to that conclusion. They reap what they sow...
