FARMINGDALE, N.Y. --
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.
