Angel Cabrera holds off Tiger Woods to win U.S. Open - Score one for Argentina
Cabrera, chain-smoking, husky, nervous as could be, against Woods, whose abs you can clean clothes on and who seemed calmer than ever before.
And the husky, chain-smoking nervous wreck beats the chill, body-beautiful golf genius. The guy with no PGA Tour wins tops the guy who has 57 of them. Such is our game.
One interesting fact: Since 1999, Argentinians have won more golf majors than Europeans. It’s true. Look it up.

of a sport. There is NO need to hit the gym to play
the bowlers to smoke while they're bowling. To make matters worse, while showing Cabrera smoking, the commentators at NBC tells their audience (incl. millions of kids) that
smoking calms the nerves, which is not the truth at all.
Nicotine is a stimulant and it's only calming effects are to ease the symptoms of withdrawal pangs that the body goes through every few minutes. What the heck is wrong with the PGA and the USGA that in 2007, they still allow their members to smoke WHILE participating and role modeling for millions of wannabe golfers who are watching intently. Apologies and changes are in order and should be addressed by NBC and the PGA/USGA very soon.
