A giant mess...and fans take a bath


This is going to be a loooonngggg U.S. Open.

Several USGA officials said the weather Saturday might be just like it was on Thursday. Which means by the time it's done raining here the course will have floated away.

There hasn't been this much precipitation since Terrell Owens defended Tony Romo.

Apparently the same meteorologists who are giving the USGA its weather updates are the same ones who provided Bud Selig his Accu-Weather reports during last year's World Series. One minute the USGA says the weather will clear; the next they're predicting tee shots from an ark.

The one common thread in this? The fans get screwed. Unlike with baseball, there is little the USGA can do, except hire 7,000 squeegee people. Fans are stuck for the next few days waiting in the rain for news.

While they're at it maybe they can pick up a squeegee and help.

Rain at the U.S. Open

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.
