Happy Birthday Dad!


Today would've been 75, but since it's only the 2nd since you've been gone, this will go on for a few years. We miss you, but we also know you're celebrating in style.

Spurs update

Home & home with the Utah Jazz Sunday & Monday. First one here, second one in Salt Lake City. Both games were terribly officiated. Here are the boxscores: Sunday 4/8: @SA-114 Uta-104 F -- Monday 4/9: @Uta-91 SA-84 F.

Pop chose to leave Tony, Manu, & Timmy at home for that second one. And we still almost won, despite the huge disparity at the free throw line. The night before we got the better end of the calls to the FT line, but they also missed tons of calls, and made so many bad calls, I was ready to scream.

I was also prepared for the previous limited post for those two games - but based upon the LA Lakers coming to town Wednesday. No doubt we'd have a great game hosting them for the first time this season, right? Not the case. Even without Kobe playing, we came out

sluggish, worried, and as Sean Elliott said, "over-respecting" this team. Gary Neal didn't play due to a stomach issue, and Tony Parker seemed like he was either thinking abut his new French hottie, or dreaming about memories with Eva.

Bynum was huge in this game. Absolutely huge. 16 points & 30 rebounds. He had 19 at the half. Crazy stat #2: Metta World Peace led the Lakers in scoring with 26, including 5 of 8 from three. So as we were out-rebounded 60-33, and dominated inside most of the game, we still kept it reasonable for the most part - chipping away at the lead throughout. But it was the 3rd-Q that was our downfall. LA quickly increased the 5-pt. halftime lead to 13 in just over 3 minutes. We would close to within 9, but then go completely cold from the field, and fall to a 20-pt. deficit. Wow! Then later, down by 26 with 7+ left, the Spurs went on a 16-1 run to come within 11... but by that time, it was clear Pop was going to concede the loss with only 2 minutes to go. Lakers win 98-84.

In 24 minutes Duncan had 14 pts. 3 blocks, but 2 rebounds. In 26 minutes Manu had 9 pts., 4 reb., and 5 assists on 3 of 8 shooting. Most importantly, Tony had only 4 pts. on 2 of 12 shooting, with 8 assists. We simply got out-played, but I can guarantee it won't happen again. Every now & then the whole team is gonna have a bad game against a good team. This was one of those nights. Here is the boxscore.

Pantera - I'm Broken


Probably my all-time favorite Pantera tune. I used to crank on this song as I entered Kyle Seale Parkway on the way to Cedar Creek Golf Course in San Antonio. I know Rick Trevino knows the feeling of driving to Cedar Creek. It's a special place.

It's weird how things connect with other things, but Cedar Creek was my favorite course for a long, long time. I love music, and will always be listening to something good whenever I'm in the car. I usually make it a point to put on something great before a golf round, and I'm Broken & Cedar Creek just stuck together many times.

Yeah I know it's -shopped. But it's hilarious! Now we need a picture of Yao wearing this picture on his t-shirt.

May as well take pictures of signs, because you sure can't do anything else here.

Middle Class Rut - New Low


Probably a Re-port, but I love this song, and most of what these two guys come up with. Credit to MJH for turning me onto them!

I saw this immediately after it happened, when they replayed the shot in very slow motion. I laughed instantly, and HAD to go back and find it for you guys. It's a ton better in the video, which you can see by going to, and clicking on "leaderboard", then clicking on Ooosthuizen's "4" on hole #18 (the first playoff hole) inside the sudden-death playoff mini-scorecard. A 2½ minute video will play, showing Oosthuizen's 4 shots for that hole.

Miss you Dad!

Yeah Masters Sunday was always a special day for me & my Dad. His birthday was April 13th, and his and my Mom's anniversary was April 6th. We were always golfing, at least up until about 2008. Whenever it was Masters weekend, or also U.S. Open weekend, the time with my father was incredibly special. The U.S. Open almost always coincided with Father's Day. Any major as a matter of fact got us going. The British Open is usually right around my birthday, too.

I have no doubt that the most beautiful golf course in the world, Augusta National, probably pales in comparison with the most beautiful golf courses Dad's been playing.

I love you, and I miss you!
