Well, for once I am ahead of the group. I find watching sports, all and any sports, from golf to car racing, intolerable, obnoxious, and loathsome.

Have to agree, Randall.  That "go in the hole!" business got old about 10 squares back.

Comment by Randall Smith on Sunday

Beware! Here comes another gripe. (The older I get , the less tolerant I become.)

Upon watching the U.S. Open on the telly, I've noticed some spectators have become quite vocally obnoxious. They yell something--usually, "GO IN THE HOLE!"-- after each and every shot, even if it's a drive. It gets very tiresome--and loathsome.

It's no longer a "gentleman's game"--at least as far as the fans go.

To me, the Golden State Warriors have become the hated Yankees of professional basketball.

On the court, they whine and cry about every foul--called or not. Draymond Green is the worst of all.

Seth Curry chewing on his mouth piece is disgusting.

The team interview on 60 Minutes recently cemented my negative feelings about the players. They were totally obnoxious, save one.

I can hardly stand to watch the playoffs. I'm a Hoosier--a basketball purist. The fouling, travels and double dribbling, the lack of team play, etc., make it difficult to enjoy. If I cared that much, I would have watched the last quarter last night. I went to bed. Happy I didn't see Golden State win by one point.

I don't usually watch baseball games on TV (boring), but with nothing else on (unless you're interested in the Trump saga), I watched a White Sox game last night. They were my team growing up in South Bend. Somewhere along the line, I switched allegiance to the Cubs.

Anyway, the game had several rarities: one was a triple play (plus 4 double plays), the other a grand slam on the batter's first ever home run. Pretty neat!

Quite a weekend of upsets, particularly highlighting the Kentucky Derby and the PGA Wells Fargo golf tourney. 65 to 1 odds winner Country Time wins the K.D. in a disqualification. And a guy ranked 417th in the world beats a tough field by 3 strokes.

Oh, and the Cubs swept the first place Cardinals!

I watched almost all of the final day Masters coverage, and I have to say, Tiger Woods was just Mr. Steady throughout, particularly on the back nine.  He managed a par on 12 when Finau and Mollanari took a swim and got birdies where he needed them, which allowed him to relax, if only slightly on 18.

Frankly, I thought his play was brilliant, and I doubt mightily that we've heard the last of Tiger.

Ah Ha! So there's still hope for my degenerating golf game, eh? If Tiger can do it at his "advanced" age, perhaps I can too. Doubtful.

I continue to be surprised at the outpouring of support for Tiger. His personal life is (was) nothing to be proud of. His personality doesn't please many people. And, above all, in this racist society, he's black. But the crowds were adoring. I was glad he won.

"A game of inches", a phrase often heard in so many sports. I can certainly attest to that when my putt rims out. But, in this case, it's basketball.

How many times did the game come down to a matter of inches, whether literally or figuratively? Virginia's last two wins (over Purdue and Auburn) were nothing short of miraculous. I'd say luck had a lot to do with it. Of course, others would credit prayer. We know how foolish that is.

Heartbreaking--that's all I can say. Purdue loses in overtime.
