British Open pick: Sergio Garcia (as usual)
Sergio Garcia. He’s gotta do it this time.
Okay, I picked Sergio to win the U.S. Open. I’ve picked Sergio to win a lot of tournaments. In fact, I’m going to pick him to win every tournament as long as he’s playing or I’m writing about golf.
I’m not picking him for his newfound putting stroke or his Players Championship win or his new mindset. I’m picking him for my own selfish reasons. I envision a world where Tiger is No. 1 and Sergio is No. 2. This is how the order of golf is supposed to be.
Add Garcia’s stellar Ryder Cup record versus Woods’ pedestrian record, and with a couple more majors from Sergio you can start some pretty good debates. I also like my antagonists to have a foreign accent.
I’m tired of a world where Phil Mickelson is No. 2. Lefty doesn’t seem to cherish his role there, doing stupid things like not using his driver at the U.S. Open and not playing in all of the FedEx Cup events when he had Tiger on the ropes.
Nor is he cocky enough. He’s sheepish and polite, which I’m not cool with. I like Sergio’s feisty attitude. Bashful doesn’t beat Tiger Woods very often. And if it does, it’s not as captivating as a bold dresser and arrogant sound bite.
Dammit Sergio, I’ve been waiting for your breakthrough since 1999 and I’m getting impatient. Viva El Nino!!!

Wee Wee Mon Capiton..
I know I am quite limited and look stupid, but it keeps the bills paid and keeps me from getting a job where I am looking at you and asking you if "you want fries with that?"
You have entirely too much time on your hands. It's a great big world out there.
Not really. I am busy writing on Romo and his follies and felt sorry for my fellow bloggers as yourself for not getting as much attention as I do.
You know the attention tramp I am ;0)
Hopefully he will win today or we will have to sadly concede to Chris somewhere.
So far college at Eastern Illinois his playoff record in Division 1AA
was 0-3 after great seasons.
So far in the NFL, his playoff record is 0-2 after great seasons.
So far in golf, his winning tournament record is 0 for ? overall and 0-2 this year after having leads in initial rounds.
