Monday Musings

Posted: April 11, 2016 in Uncategorized

And so the greatest sporting theatre of the year has once more come and gone and did not disappoint even if most people had to google the winner. Those last 9 holes at Augusta eh. The critical 10 minutes of course was Spieth who , as returning champ gets to choose the Champions dinner menu, but instead chose to make a meal of the short 12th. It gladdens the heart of all hackers to see a pro stuff up like that while at the same time feeling some pity momentarily. Cant really take to Spieth though as he seems to be the good old boy off course but does whine a lot on the course and has the charisma of a limp flag. Not too many limp flags at Augusta mind you over those first few days. Day shot his load in the first round losing those 5 shots. Even though he hung around you dont get over that momentum stopper. Scott was always going to struggle on these greens. Oost’s hole in one was simply unbelievable given its ricochet off another ball at first pushing it away from the hole

In other sporting news the Broncs continue to dawdle along by making few mistakes. Interesting to hear King Wally saying they are still doing 90% defensive work at training so lets hope their attack kicks in soon. The QT man of Rugby League clearly has a plan and not a big sharer. Of course what do we do if we are the NSW media and the QLD teams are daylight ahead of everyone else ? – flog the death out of the “rat “story. zzzzzzzzz The cross team circle prayer at end of Tigers Knights game was an interesting sight. Very American in a way and beyond my realms of comprehension but can’t be a bad thing really . Maybe the Tigers were in no rush to get to the dressing room….

In other theatre news we have of course the US elections. I think Trumpy Von Trump’s bubble has burst and while he will win NYC he wont get the 1237 needed and so we have a “contested convention” where there is a strong move to allow guns to be carried. What could go wrong ? The GOP contest of course sounds like you went in for that vasectomy reversal but there was a cock up (literally!) and you came out with a circumcision reversal instead. You just know there is a lot of pain ahead. So anyone rejoicing the downfall of Trump , as we all should, just take a closer look at Cruz. In other media commitments have already highlighted he has to be Eddie Munster grown up doesnt he ?

Kasich seems ok but then it is easy to be casual and free wheeling when no chance 🙂 On the other side Hil’s biggest problem could well be her last name while the one email she forgot to send was to Bernie telling him he’s dreamin! They let Slick Willy off the chain last week and it may bite them and her strong support amongst African Americans. Seems the strength behind Hillary, despite losing the last 7 primaries, are the famed Super Delegates. It would appear that like most men his age Bernie is only on Unleaded. You only have to listen to Obama speak though to know that whoever wins there will be an intellect void by comparison at 1600 Pennsylvania for next 4-8 years

Speaking of USA, CLP is nagging me to go back to USA one more time. She must have got two messages stuck together because it ended with “and dont come back “which of course does not make sense. So an idea is forming based on a famous Mamas and Papas song and no it does not involve the Mardi Gras in Sydney. But u r right , that is a great song to end on and does remind me time for some new clothes. But Im keeping the beanie ok…..

    I will add that Spieth has been a class act since the implosion and as usual Professional golfers show the rest of the sporting world how to deal with adversity just before they board their private jet to the next pot of gold
