Sports Outside the Beltway


NBC and Dan Hicks are idiots. The golf broadcast starts at 3 p.m. But first we have to hear from the NBC sports desk.

Who cares if Michael Campbell is leading the French Open? I don’t and I’m a golf fan.

Two minutes play 3 p.m. the real broadcast starts. NBC shows Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie making putts. Fine.

Then we get a video of the course and some of its history etc. All fluff, where’s the leaderboard and better yet where is the golf.

When that’s over, we get a highlight reel. Dan Hicks and NBC need their heads examined for this.

First they show Annika and Michelle making the EXACT same shots they did at the beginning of the broadcast.

I feel a Paul Dooley Breaking Away moment coming on me. Instead of “Refund? Refund??”

Repeat? Repeat?? Repeat??? Repeat????……..

We also got to see Lorena Ochoa make a birdie. She is four shots back! I know Lorena is the leading money winner this year.


NBC’s highlights didn’t show one shot from Se Ri Pak. Se Ri is tied for the lead.

They’ve shown Birdie Kim’s bunker shot from 2005 twice in the first twenty minutes of golf.

Repeat? Repeat?? Repeat??? Repeat????……..

You won’t believe what I’m about to say.

TGC please come back. All is forgiven.(Well almost)
