I love Tiger (in that manly DEAN RASMUSSEN way), but I hope Rocco wins.

I sat around and watched almost all the golf yesterday and it was an outstanding day of vegetation. It was rainy up here in Maine, so outside activities were limited, so I didn't feel too guilty about it, either.

The only part that pains me is that even if Rocco Mediate wins, the media will claim that it was because Tiger's knee bothered him.

Go Rocco! Win one for the Italian-Americans (if in fact, he is Italian-American)!! He's only two years younger than me and has my exact body type!

I am listening on XM146 who have some talking heads describing the action. But they just finished 9 and I think I am leaving work ill right now. I think lying down on my couch at home with NBC on the screen might alleviate my illness.

Bastard!
We've been listening to the radio here at work and it just cut out for news on the hour just as were lining up on the 18th. Go, Rocco!!!!!


-EDIT - SUDDEN DEATH! Tiger birdied the 18th and I think they're heading to the 7th hole to start sudden death.

-edit 2 - Rocco missed the putt so Tiger wins his 14th major. There you have it.

When they headed for the 18th, I ran out to my car and fired up the XM channel.

What an ending. Drama all the way.

I'm not a big golf fan, but man this was one amazing match to watch between Tiger & Rocco. Unfortunely, I was rooting for Rocco, so it wasn't quite the ending I was hoping for. Still, you got to admire Tiger being able to hit every clutch shot and doing it on one good leg, too.

If you are still interested, NBC.com had shot by shot action of Tiger on Sunday, as well as the entire playoff round to be viewed online.

Most every other golfer would probably be happy to take the rest of the year off if they'd already finished 1st and 2nd in the first two majors. (And most every other golfer is secretly thrilled about having a better chance. TV people, not so much.)

The article makes it seem as though Tiger probably only did the tournament to see if he could go on like this (and might as well test it out on the toughest major) and he was going to be done regardless how the US Open was going to turn it. Winning it makes it worth it.

Even with the injury, it was totally worth it. Not just because Tiger won the major, but because he did with one leg and with clutch shots, too. He's always been a winner, but at times I have heard some people question how he would do if faced with adversity. They sure as hell can never ask those questions again after seeing him gut it out an extra 19 holes on a torn ACL to win the US open.

SI.com's Top 10 Playing With Pain Moments (from 2004, all on one page) if you want to compare..

Willis Reed - made a couple of early jumpers, his team did most of the heavy lifting
Kirk Gibson - never would have been able to get around on the cheese
Jack Youngblood - played in the Pro Bowl the week after the game. Nuff said.

Stevie Yzerman playing 23 playoff games on a blown out knee is probably the closest, but I imagine he was able to use a brace. Sorry MJ, heroic though the effort was, "the flu" really doesn't fit this list.

I wonder if Tiger got a shot between nines on Sunday (is cortizone even legal anymore?), it really didn't seem like there was more than a couple of "wince" moments over his last 28 holes. Guess that explains why he was so anxious for that last putt to end it.

Oh, and how about giving Tiger's Ryder Cup spot to Rocco as a Captain's pick?
