The View from the Cheap Seats

Wasn’t really worried too much about the Giants’ three game losing streak heading into last Sunday’s game against San Diego. Despite the skid, they were still just a game behind Dallas and Philadelphia with divisional matchups with each remaining on the schedule. While the defense had been suffering ever since Safety Kenny Phillips was lost for the season, talented pass rushers like Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora were certainly talented enough to make the necessary adjustments and, oh yeah, there was still a Super Bowl MVP calling signals. There was every reason to believe the October skein was merely a hiccup. Until the Giants last possession.

Say this for the 109th US Open at Bethpage; it certainly wasn’t boring. There was Lucas Glover, the surprise winner whose steadiness belied the fact that he had but one previous Tour victory on his resume. Ricky Barnes, another unknown who set a thirty-six hole Open scoring record, collapsed in the final round and finished tied for second. David Duval, the best player in the world before Tiger, found some of his old magic and was one of three runners-up; his first top ten finish in seven years. The third to finish two shots off the pace, Phil Mickelson, enjoyed a weekend long outpouring of love and support from New York fans sympathetic to his wife Amy’s battle against breast cancer. And, then, there was the rain. Rain that postponed play, soaked fans, diverted parking, moved tee boxes and, mostly, exposed the USGA as an organization that really doesn’t think well on its feet.
