When Caddies Go Wild

Sunday at the 2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship Paul Casey got a hole-in-one on the 15th hole. His caddie, Craig Connelly, though it won him a car. That elicited the reaction below.

Sadly for Connelly, he did not win a car. But he will be YouTube famous forever now.

"He's always been a great ball striker." Oh really?

The Redskins are back in the news for something other than being adept at the game of football. What are the chances they can fight and win the league's cap-stripping? If there was no written edict prohibiting the deals they signed, and if the league approved every contract, it seems like there is at least grounds for contesting the decision. No doubt Snyder will try.

Geoff said...

Calling someone a great ball striker is akin to saying a QB is a "pure passer".

As to the Skins, there seems to be almost unanimity in the belief that the Skins/Cowboys were completely hosed here. If the league approved each deal, I don't see how they have a leg to stand on here. And, informing them of the cap hit 24 hours before free agency begins is complete bull shit.

Like they aren't going to fuck it up regardless of how much cap room they have?

Carlos Rogers' performance this year sealed it for me. The Redskins have such a toxic atmosphere, no one can truly be successful here. Rogers sucked for seven years. He leaves for SF and all of the sudden he's a pro bowl starter and he knows how to catch any everything.

According to Phillip Daniels, the reason Carlos Rogers couldn't catch anything -- and he really couldn't... the guy couldn't catch crabs on Greg's dating circuit -- is that his eyes were bad. And in the first week of camp with the 49ers, they checked his eyes and they gave him contact lenses. And now he can see. And catch. And the Redskins are still scratching their head.

Deadspin and a few other places are casting the NFL in a very bad light over this Skins/Boys debacle. I enjoyed the mention that the executive committee that handed down this punishment is chaired by the owner of the Giants.

i've always been a great ball striker.

translation: i can't putt for dick.

haven't been around much because on top of work, dog, and life, i'm taking a 9 hour "F license" course so that i can coach my son's U-8 soccer team. last night was the three hour classroom session. i felt really smart because i answered the question: "how many rules are there?" correctly.

















the answer is seventeen.

Dave said...

In the 90's the Bullets still played 4 games a year in the old Baltimore arena. Those games were always extra fun b/c the crowd was loud, the building is like an old high school gym, and we would stay out late at the bars post-game and then stop at the Double T Diner at 3am on the way home.

At a time out during one of those Bmore games, we had a half-court shot for a car and this frumpy middle-aged dude hurled the ball at the basket and it went in. It was awesome. The crowd went nuts. He was jumping around like a Price Is Right contestant. I think it was a Buick.

I have never been inside of a Buick.

It's like being inside an Oldsmobile.
