The Host Wins ...

>> Sunday, July 5, 2009







On the same day his friend, Roger Federer, won Wimbledon, Tiger Woods won the AT&T National. The win gives Woods his 3rd PGA victory of the season. Woods overcame Hunter Mahon's record-tying 62 with a final round 3 under 67 for a one shot victory. Woods finished the tournament at 13 under par 267 and like any other gracious host, interviewed himself. I guess if I was Tiger Woods I would interview myself as well.

With his 68th PGA tour career win, Tiger moved to the top of the FedEx Cup standings for the first time this year. Today, two of the world's most dominant athletes showcased why they stand alone in their respective sports.

So Close ...






In arguably one of the greatest Wimbledon finals ever, Andy Roddick was left with a tray that has became all to common for him when playing Roger Federer ... the runner's-up tray. Federer is now 19-2 all time when facing Roddick. Today, Roddick certainly played like a champion and gave Federer a run for his money. At one point, I seriously thought Roddick was going to take the fifth set when he back-handed one down the line to lead 15-40 and looked to force break-point. Then Roddick didn't score another point and Roger won the game. Then I knew calm and collective Federer would probably win the match.

I hated to see either player lose today because both played their hearts out. Roger striving to be the greatest of all time and Andy desperately trying to just beat Roger, something he can't see to do. In the end, Roddick displayed the utmost respect to the champion and accepted defeat knowing Federer outplayed him in the final set. One thing we can all say about Roddick is he never gave up. Congrats to both players for a truly remarkable final match.

Incredible...





While I sat here with a Post-Independence Day hangover, I was able to witness one of the greatest fifth sets in the history of professional tennis. Yesterday I was of the belief that Roger would dominate Andy Roddick from the outset of the match and cruise to his fifteenth grand slam victory, but I was wrong.

Andy Roddick provided more than a valiant effort and it was upsetting to see either man have to lose such an amazing match. Roddick was 100% class in the post-championship festivities, showing a grace and attitude that is well beyond his years. That maturity has been an integral part of his recent improvement on the the court.

However, Federer once again proved to be to tough of an opponent and he now rest atop the tennis record books as the most successful tennis player of all time. It will be interesting to see how many championships Federer will eventually retire with in his possession. It's not impossible for him to reach 20, especially with his nemesis Rafael Nadal on the sidelines.

Once again, just an amazing match that will be worthy of all the talk it receives today.

The Death of Air McNair...





Yesterday the sports world was shocked to find out the news regarding Steve "Air" McNair's sudden death in Nashville, TN. McNair's death appears to be one of very, very sketchy circumstances, but that shouldn't take away from his contributions to the game.

McNair was the consummate gentleman throughout his entire career and played through injuries that would make Earl Campbell proud. While his stats may not have always been the flashiest, there is a reason he was named Co-MVP in 2003 with Peyton Manning, because of his incredible leadership abilities and a willingness to win.



RIP, Air McNair.
