We’ve got a muy caliente weekend on tap here in the Valley of the Sun, I’m sharing the house with three women (the twins and my sister-in law’s 17-year old daughter) so I feel like I’m in the middle of the world’s largest chick sleep-over. Wonder if I can sneak out and find a place to watch a little baseball and golf over a Sam Summer or two.

How many thought both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson would miss the cut at the Greenbriar Classic? Phil doesn’t surprise me – his game has looked like crap ever since winning at Pebble Beach earlier this year, and I’m wondering if his health issues, age, and outside interests are starting to catch up with him. Unlike Goodboys Steve “Killer” Kowalski and Pat “Doggy Duval” McLaughlin, you can’t just show up, flip a switch, and expect your game to be there. Tiger, on the other hand, is just a small surprise. In his case, I think it really was more of an off week – after all, he scheduled attending this event a couple of months ago when he was struggling, figuring he’d need all the work he could get prior to the British Open. Now, after winning the Memorial and the AT&T, his motivation level just wasn’t there. He should be in the thick of things two weeks hence at Royal Lytham St. Anne.

The Red Sox look like crap. This team is ready for a major trade or two. I don’t see Josh Beckett making iot past the All-Star break. Get some young talent for him or package him with either Carl Crawford or Jacoby Ellsbury and go after some big fish.

Everyone knows I’ve been a little hard on Michelle Wie in the past, but she looked damned good on Friday at the U.S. Women’s Open. After a long midnight chat about three months ago we decided to bury the hatchet, and I’m now pulling for her almost as much as I do for the Paula “Pink Panther” Creamer whenever she’s in the field. Both a great kids, and I’d love to do a foursome that involves Killer, me, Michelle, and Paula. Put some bets down for drinks afterwards and watch us tear ’em apart on their choice of venue. Michelle, Paula – any takers?

Not sure what’s more beautiful to watch: golf at Pebble Beach, or John Cook’s golf swing. He’s a great guy who was tutored a bit by the great Ken Venturi, always had a nice swing, but he’s really playing great now. Both he and Tom Kite are a couple of class acts, and there are more than a couple-two-three players on the PGA Tour who could learn a lesson or two about dignity and class.

Thank you, Ray Allen. It was great to have you in Boston. Best wishes for the rest of your career.
