Tiger Woods wins US Open. I hate watching golf, but Monday's playoff round in Torrey Pines was the most compelling golf since Adam Sandler tackled Bob Barker. So the 72 holes over the weekend wasn't enough to settle things between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate. Even the 18 playoff holes weren't enough. No, they played a sudden death hole where Mediate finally caved in hitting a bunker shot into the grandstand. All in all this was the best US Open in forever.
NY Mets defeat LA Angels 9-6. The Angels rallied in the seventh down 8-3 but fell short. It's funny how the Angels have similar problems as the Dodgers but still manage to win. I wonder if Hank Steinbrenner Jr will bitch about that too
