Big Baby

Not a huge Johnny Miller fan but he channelled my thoughts exactly. 63 at Erin hills is not the same as a 63 at par 71 Oakmont. He even called it the Milwaukee Open like me. Dufner means well but he's trying too hard to sound smart.

CARRIE FISHER!!!

found in her system were ecstasy, heroin and cocaine, among other "stuff"; geez, that girl in star wars with the hgairbuns above her ears goes wild in the golden years! heroin and cocaine!! as lowell george, RIP, wrote "don't give me a speedbal, might die trying"! well both of them did

Big Baby,

nice compliment to say el tri is top 5 in the world! they are playing well, but they'd struggle to be top five in the western hemisphere.

Big Baby

That's my list shadow sticking with it.

Big Baby

You know how I feel about Fifa anyway.

Fzb3346

who's Fifa?..is that the name of your new poodle? just asking.

Big Baby

International Soccer federation. For the most part they are a bunch of poodles.

Big Baby

Add Jordan Spieth to the list of players out of touch with reality. Yes Jordan the course is too easy.

Big Baby

shadow let Russia fight that battle alone. I have a feeling this may escalate. I thought Putin and Trump were cordial as well if so not anymore. US needs to get out of there.

TROPICAL STORMS A-BREWIN!!!

well it os the season; it rained a great deal today and seems like another storm is on the way. rained non-stop between 11-2 this morning/afternoon.

Big Baby,

USA and russia on opposite sides of then syrian "civil war". worst move in my lifetime was the invasion of iraq and the complete breakdown of any semblance of "order" in the middle east. saddam hussein was bad, but at least with him there there was some degree of stability. those were the days. as trumpski's good pal putin stated, and he was right on this, the USA would be better off with dictators in place; in countries with no concept of democracy forcing it on them has led to the complete destabilization of the region.

OC Dolphin,

real good flub on brooks' girlfriend by fox/joe buck. she wasn't bad, but not a grade A WAG type. what's next? british open? or did i m miss that?

ANOTHER ROOKIE WITH 20 HRs BY JULY!!

who is this wunderkind bellringer of the dodgers? where do they have room to fit all these talented young white guys? Mr. Woodcock must be ready to throw himself off the manhattan beach pier with the dodgers, whom he loathes playing well.

20-20 CLUB:

you gotta be really great to average 20 points and 20 rebounds in college. add the really good artis gilmore to the list. although sidney wicks handled him in the 69-70 NCAA final, gilmore was fantastic the whole season. the eastern regional final against kentucky, with dan issel having fouled out, was one of the grittiest contests the ole shadow has ever seen. UK went into, i think, double overtime w/o issel, before finally giving way. id harris is not one of the 10m best centers ever, i can't imagine who is.

TOOK A LOOK AT THE LISTS, WHICH DON'T CONTAIN ARTIS!

it is hard to quarrel with the choices, but i would take george mikan out and put artis in.
i understand george mikan's unreal dominance, but he really had no competition in those halcyon years of the NBA. plus, i don't think patrick ewing was as great an NBAer as he was a collegian. he was ruined in the NBA by being made into a scorer primarily, with his defense and rebounding sacrificed for points. worst thing he ever did was hit that corner shot to open the title game against UNC-yes he could shoot, but he should have been playing a walton type game in the pros; instead they made hime the first option on terrible offensive teams that the knicks had. and you can blame riley for a big chunk of that-the fist in the air meant throw the ball to whichever center he had.

Jimbo

We're getting steady rain for the last 16 or so hours. Nothing to get excited about - yet.

WHAT A JOKE!!!!

greg oden is gonna be the student manager at ohio state; says he is gonna "mentor" some of the players!! greg oden!! a "mentor"?based on his years of experience!! make me gag

the shadow knows

Jimbo,

that is a lot of water!!

the shadow knows

HEY, I LIKE BASEBALL BUT....

when its takes an hour to get to the top of the 3rd, even an ardent admirer of the game loses patience. plus the non-stop babbling of the announcers makes the game seem secondary. CAN THEY PLEASE SHUT UP?

Jimbo

24 hours later & it's still raining. Cindy is one wet bitch.

IS ADRIAN GONZALEZ HURT?

saw that the HR hitting rookie bellringer plays 1st, and that he is a left-handed hitter. then dodgers have a very good and proven player in gonzalez. how'd he get into the line-up. 21 HRs and it is not even july, aaron judge 24 HRs. two rookies denting the bleachers? let's check the composition of the bristol, which seems to be flying out of every park thus far this season.

Big Baby

I had Gonzalez on my fantasy team and dropped him shadow. I think he's declining wasn't hitting for any power or average. Strange because he has had a solid career not sure what's going on.

STRANGE TACTIC HAS MEXICO READY TO BE ELIMINATED IN RUSSIA!!!!

osorio decided to start his "b" team against new zealand, who although wasn't thought to be much popped guys into the box at will, resulting in one goal in the 542nd minute and forcing mexico's goalkeeper into 2 or 3 big saves. the stars are sitting on the bench, and if the result holds, mexico will say hasta la vista to any chance of the next round. russia and portugal already have wins, and mexico needs something big to happen against a much bigger and stronger side from next to down under. guess osorio thought not too much of the kiwis, but his nalgas are on the hot seat barring an almost miracle comeback.

BIG COMEBACK, BIGGER RUMBLE!!!!

well inserting hector herrera made el tri a much better presence on the field, but the teams rumbled after a shirt hold by mexico that went without a card until after the rumble and a review by the assistants. well, el tri need a result (read at least a draw) against the home team or they will be history unless portugal falls apart against an already eliminated new zealand. believe they will be playing the russkis on sunday 11 EDT.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

the "b" team had hector herrera in the second half and he seemed to get things to open up for them. they've now got a young player named jurgen damm who was pretty good. tomorrow it is chile against germany, and both will advance. if el tri holds up against russia, it would be a semis of mexico, portugal, chile and germany, and el tri would be a real underdog against either of the top teams in the other bracket.

Big Baby

Both goals for Mexico nicely done. Mexico hasn't lost a game since the Copa America last year. I would put them right there to beat anyone right now.

Big Baby

4th Selke award for the great Patrice Bergeron tying Bob Gainey. Kid from Montreal has had a pretty good career.

OC Dolphin

shadow,

Next up is The Open, or The British Open, as was once known before those tea sipping snobs declared that there was only ONE Open.

The Open Championship returns to Royal Birkdale. Birkdale will actually be a return to England for this tournament after a two-year hiatus in Scotland. Just over 7,000 yards, it's a short course whose only defense is the winds. Advantage Texans.

OC Dolphin

That's a month from now- July 20-23.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

don't think i will watch germany and chile as they will probably meet in the final and i am having a long day today. heard that osorio subbed 8 players from the 11 that tied portugal. they were way better in the second half yesterday with quite a few "cheeky" chances in the box. they just couldn't contain chris wood (not the guy that played with traffic)

the shadow knows

OC Dolphin,

thanks for the information regarding the open. isn't this the one where the frenchy put his ball in the lake and watched something like a seven stroke lead dissipate?was in the Holy Land at the time and they don't show golf on TV in a country with one golf course!

Fzb3346

I guess we'll have something to watch tonight, the NBA draft is on, yeah We are scrapping the bottom of the barrel people.

when does football starts again?

OC Dolphin

shadow,

The "Frenchy" screwup Open actually took place in Carnoustie, where Jean van de Velde was trying to become the first Frenchman since 1907 to win the tournament. "Frenchy" had a three stroke lead going into the final hole and entertained a multitude of golfers everywhere but France, where his bravado (hardheadedness) crushed his dream.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

changed my mind and am watching chile play germany's youth team. chile started off pressing them with a very high line-and alexis sanchez- the classiest, most noble player in the futbol world, just put chile up with a very early goal, 6& 1/2 minutes into the match.

the shadow knows

OC Dolphin,

"van de Velde" sounds dutch-was the guy from belgium, where half the country is french and the other half dutch. belgium is the poland of western europe, except their gfutbol club of late is world class. their last match at the WC with the USA was a game for the ages, and maybe tim howard's finest hour. am not a big fan of his, but in that game he sparkled.

Big Baby

Good that Germany is young a WC is not in their future next year. Chile is a good team as evidenced when they beat albicelestes in the tourney a few years ago. It's lining up for an Argentinian run in 2018 if fifa doesn't get involved which is of most interest to me.

the shadow knows

OC Dolphin,

google did a good job describing his arrogance that cost him a major title, just as you described. the british open is my favorite tournament, and i think that john daly won the title once, way after his "fall from grace" owing to his incessant drinking.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

chile is the reigning champion of the americas, and until your guys in blue and white defeats them, i'd say that they are well-lined up for the WC next summer with a talented and experienced squad in their red, white, and blue.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

chile dominant and just hit one off the crossbar. they are all over the young krauts.

Big Baby

Looking at the current fifa ranking (which are a joke of course) Argentina #2 Chile # 4. Mexico at 17 is nonsense there are at least 5 or more teams ahead of them that shouldn't be.

the shadow knows

ONE BREAK, AND 1-1 IT IS!!!

#14 for germany really hustled the ball up the pitch, got it into the corner where an excellent cross found stindl (?) who bounced it into the net. an excellent match that chile really had in control until that one breakout into chile's side of the field.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

well, i guess el tri will need a draw or better to move on. they had most of the "A" team sitting for new zealand, but me thinks they will get the draw they need, even though playing in russia. i trust your assessment on how good they are, and if so they should be able to handle the russkis.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

your team picks a duke player who is not despicable!!! jayson tatum is a decent fella, not your basic laettner or grayson allen from the little that i have seen of him. his mom is young and if she lost 30 lbs. she'd be a model; musta had him conceived when she was in her teens

the shadow knows

NO SURPRISE HERE:

ifs the refs hadn't fouled zach collins out of the NCAA final, the zags would have cut down the nets. the guy showed a ton of talent and i don't go out on a limb for NBA talent, but the ole shadow gave you kawhi leonard and methinks that zach collins will make it in the pros.
