In "honor" of Tiger Woods' return to golf at The Masters
« on: April 06, 2022, 04:33:51 PM »
The video kinda stinks, but with Carlin only the audio is really important.

For those who don't wish to watch or listen, the gist from George is "I'm tired of being told who to admire in this country".  Which I wholeheartedly agree with.

I am one of those people who couldn't care less about whether Tiger plays in the Masters.

He's hanging-in like usual, before the injury.  No awkward hulking. 

Scottie Scheffler is running away with the Tournament. 

CBS/ESPN better recalibrate their ball-flight animation...  I must've seen 12-shots that veered wildly into the trees, only to have the player hitting the next shot from a perfectly unobstructed vista.
Too deplorable to fail.

Had the ESPN+ (more on that in a minute) feed on my laptop and glanced over out of curiosity on occasion Thursday and Friday. Was dubious about his health and walking ability on that hilly course. He was a bit gimpy like some of the 60-70 year old's I often play with, but clearly his golf skills haven't diminished.

Scheffler is on quite a roll, rocketing to world #1 with three wins in recent months. But Augusta National can play tricks on the mind and still has 36 holes to navigate.

As for ESPN+, it is the only subscription service that I have (no Netflix/Apple+/Hulu, etc.).  While I'm feeding the Disney mouse, the ESPN+ package provides tons of college basketball/baseball and the PGA tour that is unavailable elsewhere.

The days of a cadre of great golfers that EVERYONE knew like Palmer, Hogan, Ballasteros, Norman, etc. are gone forever. Woods was the last one. For the last 5 or 10 years it has been a bunch of faceless names.

The same is true in tennis.

Makes me think of the original version of Rollerball from back in the seventies. "No man is bigger than the game."

Except James Caan.  He was a badass.
