>>"Having an end-of-year tournament is a great idea. Long overdue."

What do you call the PGA Grand Slam of Golf?

I'm talking about a tournament that crowns a more formal, season-long champion. The Grand Slam winner gets little more really than the winner of the John Deere or any other non-major. I think the points system with a finale is a better solution than voting a "Player of the Year" for sure.

"Jack Nicklaus wins his 4th Wheaties Green Jacket!"
"Tom Watson dominates the field at T-Mobile's St. Andrews!"
"Red Wings hoist 11th Tim Horton's Stanley Cup!"

This will eventually happen.

Jeez, Booger, what a horrid thought.
Lord Stanley would have a cow.
But the reality is that I can see exactly that happening. No wonder Gretzky moved to LA. Who would want to play in the Sky-Reach Center?
Tim Hortons Stanley cup? Yech!


Oh for the days of the original six NHL teams and Foster Hewitt doing play-by-play on Hockey Night in Canada on a Saturdy Night.

The Western Open being prefaced by a hard-on stimulant (Cialis) was the worst offender, but now the degenerate Western Golf Association is totally erasing it by turning it into the BMW Championship, one of the absurd "playoffs" ahead of the FedEx Cup final. The Western Open, one of our most historically significant tournaments has effectively ceased to exist. The ruling caste of golf are all about money, not golf. Degenerates! Bums!!!!!

Brandie,

Your musings smack of a contemptible disdain for tradition. Yes, I think old photos can very well be a "big deal" because they, like other things, remind us of our past, of where we came from.

And there are many important reasons to remember the past; ever hear of "history"? "He who forgets the mistakes of the past is damned to repeat them" and, to paraphrase C.S. Lewis, the forces of evil do want to disassociate the generations from each other because then the characteristic strengths of one generation will not be able to correct the characteristic faults of another.

You remind me of Mao Tse-tung, who tore down hundreds of miles of the Great Wall so he could use the stone for some communist project. Thank God he's six feet under; it's just too bad it didn't happen sooner.

I'm not that old, but when I read your philosophically bankrupt commentary I'm reminded of what Shaw said: "What a pity it is that youth is wasted on the young."

Seek Truth, Brandie, because wisdom doesn't always come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.

Americans angry at FexEx Schedule.

The PGA of America reads my blog apparently :-) - now they say the FedEx Cup isn't as important as the Ryder Cup and are angry at the scheduling.

Yes the name is terrible. I can't stand corporate sponsored names. Doesn't matter if they are tours or venues. Sorry I got here late, but just found you.
