MURPHY’S LAW: Big game Barnes, Sergio collapses, Farewell ‘Office’
By: John Sears
Tiger, Tiger, Woods ya’ll. Tiger is back. Woods wins the Players Championship. That’s 4 wins already this year for Tiger, #78 for his career. Where are all the people who thought Tiger would never make it back? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sundays are 100X better when Woods is in contention.
To quote Tiger, “Am I surprised? No. I know many people in this room thought I was done. I’m not.”
Sergio Garcia had an epic collapse. Garcia dunked 2 tee shots in the water on the par 3 17th, ala Kevin Costner in Tin Cup. Quadruple bogey 7. Garcia then puts his tee shot on 18 in the water. +6 in the final 2 holes, that’s choking.
I love the Tiger-Sergio beef. It adds a little drama to the game. Now, the only way this ‘fun/beef/drama’ continues is if Sergio continues to play well. We need a Tiger-Sergio, same group pairing on Sunday at the U.S. Open.
Iowa native Zach Johnson finished in a tie for 19th. Johnson carded two triple-bogeys on the weekend to derail his hopes of winning. Outside of those 2 holes, Johnson played really well.
It was a career night for Harrison Barnes. The Ames native scored 26 points in the Warriors’ game 4 win against the Spurs. Now full disclosure, the 26 points came on 26 shots, not a great shooting percentage. None the less, with Steph Curry injured someone had to shoot, and Barnes stepped up with 26. Barnes shows flashes of how great he can be, remember he was playing at Ames High just 3 years ago.. I love watching the Warriors, and hope they meet the Heat in the finals.
I sent in my ‘Umpire’ application this week. Haven’t heard back yet.
The Hawkeyes are picked to finish last in the Legends division this upcoming football season. Coming off a 4-8 year, new QB, lack of playmakers…I can see why no outsider has faith in the Hawks. I hope they prove the doubters wrong, but I also have my doubts. I’m going with 6-6.
Detroit Lions WR Titus Young is having a bad week. Young was arrested 3 times in one week, that’s just dumb X 3.
Not able to stay up and watch Soundoff? Good news, you can now sign up for email alerts to see all segments from the show. Here’s a link to sign up. Do it.
‘The Office’ show comes to an end on Thursday. 9 years, it was a good run. The show started in 2005, my first year out of college. This is one of my all-time favorite shows. It took a bit of a dive when Steve Carell left, but it’s still good. Thursday is a 2-hour series finale, it has to be good. Farewell ‘Office,’ it was fun.
Happy Mothers day to all the moms out there. Hope you had a great day. Thanks for all you do, we can’t say it enough and probably don’t.
94 degrees on Tuesday!?!?!?!?! Holy weather.
