The core of HOG’s server move is done. The template and all text/posts are good to go. Now for the big PITA, the gallery. I started transferring the files to the gallery about 15 hours ago and they’re still going…

Oh man if you only knew how fried my brain is. I may have one brain cell left… HOG is back!

I don’t have time to write, I have more stuff to fix. But I’m glad to see the core of HOG is back online with the new server!

Seve Ballesteros is improving, which is a really good thing.  He’s slated to leave intensive care next week following three brain surgeries.

British Open exclusively on ESPN starting in 2010 – Boo-NO!

Great. All four days of the British Open will be aired on ESPN starting in 2010. First the Masters and now the British.  Isn’t anything sacred?   I have the same fears I’ve always had about ESPN doing golf.  I call it “ESPNification.”  I can’t wait to hear Chris Berman’s no-longer-funny sports names. I can hear it now…

Chris Berman: “Woop, woop. Mickelson just drained a putt. He’s one below par. Now let’s go to Roger Chocolate Malt-be.”

Stuart Scott: “Straight butta! Goosen is as cool as the other side of the pillow.”

Chris Berman: “Watch Tiger’s ball go rumblin’ bumblin’ stumblin’ deeep into the bottom of the cup.”

Stuart Scott: “Boo-yah! Tiger must be the bus driver cause he was takin’ Phil to school.”

Then Vijay Singh backs a wedge up…

Stuart Scott: “Yup yup. Call me big daddy when you back that thing up. Bubba Watson just hit a 342 yard drive. Wow! That as hardcore as the Wu-Tang Clan on steroids!”

I think I’m gonna be sick…

Note: All Scott and Berman quotes used here are REAL. Yes, even the stupid “one below par” quote… OMG. GAG ME.

Lots of talk about Sergio moving to #2. He’s #1 in some other categories though…

Yes, the blogs and golf media are buzzing with the Sergio love.  Garcia has moved up to #2 in the world past Phil Mickelson.  Good for Sergio.  The gap between #1 and #2 in the world is about as big as the 18th green at Bay Hill though.

Sergio is #1

  • There’s no doubt that Sergio is the #1 golfer without a major.  And I still bet anyone a frosty beer that he’ll never win a major.  Perhaps he’ll mature and find a way to get over that big hurdle like Phil did.  At that point I’ll owe a few people some beers.
  • Sergio is hands down the #1 “spitter in the hole” though.  And nobody denies the completely inconsiderate and classless act of spitting into a golf hole better than Sergio does. Yup. Golf is a game of honor…
