Billy Crystal joins the Yankees.

Whats the fun being rich and famous if you can't use it to do all the cool stuff us working slobs always dreamed of doing? I say go Billy go! Lay down a killer bunt, and pull a hamstring on the way to first base to honor all the guys who will never get the chance.

Tiki Barber joins NBC.

I've always liked Tiki Barber, he seems like a nice guy. I wish him well in his new carreer. I have a feeling he'll be good at it. Also, i really like his torches, I have a few on my deck

Geoff Ogilvy Wins 106th U.S. Open!

After the first shot that hit the tree. Mickleson should have snaped his fingers at bones, and held out his hand for another ball, aka Roy McElvoy in Tin Cup....now that would have been priceless! The result would have been about the same anyway.

This isn't the first time, and probably not the last, that Mickelson has made a bonehead decision on a sunday afternoon. I don't begrudge him for hitting driver, it was the second bonehead shot that did him in.He could have still salvaged bogey, and lived to play another day. Still, no matter who you are, they were all pressure shots.

Tiger's Weekend May Be Cut Short

Ican't imagine having to return to work, no matter what my job , after losing a parent, and having 50 microphones stuck in my face. I thought Tiger handaled himself quite well considering how he played.

Marketing the Grief [flash]

The first time i saw a Nike product was back in the mid '70's. One of the track guys (i played baseball) brought in a pair of shoes that were light, cheap, and well made.Curiously the logo looked similar to puma's logo, who were one of the most popular athletic shoe companies of that time. Fast forward about 15 years, i was coaching a HS base ball team, and it seemed everything these kids had on , from there shoes to there hat, to include there gloves, had the Nike swoosh on it. I wonder how Puma's doing these days?

I think it's a nice tribute to Tiger and his father. I prefer Nikes well thought out ad , to the cheesy voiceover piece i'm sure CBS will run numerous times on sunday while i'm trying to watch the tournement.

So it really was the putter that deralied Tiger at the Masters

Golf clubs are delicate instruments, the loft and lie change gradualy over time,even with just normal play. The shaft flex also becomes looser, and allows more twist, and the grips become worn. they should be tuned up at least once a year. In my case, being left handed, its usually cheaper just to buy new. at least thats the line i feed my wife, and sofar she's none the wiser

Is this really the right guy to be working with youth ballplayers? Perhaps a better community service would have been to umpire some games.See how the other half lives

Johnson Waxes Off:

There are 4500 private golf clubs, of which 24 are male only nationwide. This doesn't even take into account the puplic courses out there. I don't really think women are missing out with this ratio. The bigger issue is premium tee times being reserved for men at clubs both public and private. It's getting better, but, i've still seen this policy at a public course within the last year. Prehaps this is where more energy should be focused in regards to equal access to women at golf clubs.

Johnson Waxes Off:

-lets not talk about the Red Sox or Yankees...- They ARE private businesses, and, they CAN do what they want. How many women have ever played for either team? Why is that? Does that mean we can't talk about them? I guess i don't understand what you mean by your comments

if we are going to see a female in a major, it will probably be the U.S. Open, where you can qualify at a regional site.

its still a private club. start your own club and let in who YOU want.

posted by yankee0758 at 06:32 PM on May 06

Johnson Waxes Off:

as a private club they can include or exclude anyone they want. Having a major tournament at there club exposes them to the forces of public opinion, Augusta allows black members because the negative press was too much to bear for the club, and the PGAtour when Martha threatened the club, Hootie,decided that they could weather that storm bynot selling ads for the broadcast, avoiding a boycot by there sponsors. It was a brilliant move on Hooties part, as it defused the whole issue. In the process making Burke look like the fool. There are many clubs that exclude entire groups of people. They just don't have the media exposure of augusta national.
