Rain at the U.S. Open

Posted on: June 18, 2009 9:12 am
 
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- The media just met a few minutes ago with Jim Hyler, the USGA's championship committee chairman, and he had a few interesting things to say:

1. The greens are starting to puddle which is what you'd expect during a freaking rain storm.

2. There are two to four people with squeegees at each green. Hey, it's a tough economy. Someone's got to squeegee and isn't "squeegee" a perfect word for golf?

3. The real issues are going to be the first and 18th hole, said Hyler.

He doesn't expect today to be a washout since the heaviest rain is expected to come in waves.

I don't recall seeing a meteorology degree on your resume.It's New England...you don't need a meteorology degree...the weather men just throw darts for the forecast.

I know...NY does not consider themselves a part of NE (too good for us) but the weather is the same.

And all this time I thought it was Bradymania who taught us to obsess about your resume.  I can never keep those upper echelon Freeman stalkers straight...

You're funny Warpy. That was actually a pretty good line. You're learning from Tater Tot.

I get you two confused.

That's cold, man.  Dunno whether to take that as a compliment or an insult.  ha ha.  I guess that's why they call ya the dichotomous delicious/malicious one, eh?  Speaking of "delicious", I notice that your blog is no longer advertised as "delicious, sexy ramblings".  Lemme guess: ya took out the word "sexy" after seeing how virile Gregg Doyel is?  And what's with the weather report?  I don't recall seeing a meteorology degree on your resume..Tongue out

How come when you're looking forward to something of this magnitude, Mommy Nature can't just cooperate and make things easy? Puddles and Squeegee men and issues.....NOT the way to start one of the greatest weekends of golf!

Relax Warpy. Just a little weather info and where is Tater Tot? Doesn't his probation kick in this month? Or was that yours? I get you two confused.

Wow, that was some inspired stuff, Mikey.  I made a last minute tweak to my U.S. Open fantasy lineup to take full advantage of this information.  What an awesome display of raw golf knowledge.  If Terry Tate could only see you now..
