A few thoughts and links to kick off the last week of traditional summer…
It’s great to see such an all-around good guy like Jason Day fulfill all the potential he’d been showing over the last few years. After lapping the field at The Barclays, he’s now won three of the last four tournaments he’s played, including that first major at the PGA Championship. As long as his health holds up there’s no reason in the world why he, Rory McIlroy, and Jorden Spieth can’t be golf’s new “Big Three”. Hopefully, all three can be in top form for the rest of the FedEx playoffs.
…speaking of which, I’m sure a few of the Goodboys will make next weekend’s Deutsche Bank Classic one of their Labor Day weekend venues. Ought to be a good one. Me? I’ll be spreading topsoil and planting clover in my back yard.
You want to know why I, and a lot of other people, are captivated by Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP presidential nomination polls? Because he’s not afraid to speak his mind, and he won’t let the mainstream media attempt to make their agenda his. Bet after Friday night that CNN reporter won’t try the same trick again.
This appears to be good news for Red Sox fans eager to see more of the outfield trio of Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. Me? I’m hoping they see the light and install JBJ as their every-day centerfielder – you just don’t find that combination of arm strength and ball-hawking athleticism too many places. I think Mookie is a natch for right field, but Fenway’s right field is one of the toughest in baseball. I think Mookie’s up to the challenge.
Is there anyone out there who doesn’t see Hillary Clinton’s latest strident and outrageous comments about Republican as anything but an obvious tactic to shift the attention away from her problems with the Justice Department and the FPI over he e-mail and e-mail server problems?
