British Open Collapse Follow-up

Submitted Wednesday, July 15, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Sports
While searching for video I stumbled on this rather amusing short film done a couple years later, with Van de Velde revisiting the site of his collapse and showing that he at least has a good sense of humor about the whole thing as he tries to replay the infamous hole with only a putter.

10 Year Anniversary of (Maybe) the Most Epic Collapse in Modern Sports

Submitted Wednesday, July 15, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Sports
As the British Open approaches, which is pretty much the only golf tournament I ever watch during the year, I was reminded that this is the 10 year anniversary of the most amazing epic collapse in a sporting event I have ever witnessed. The range of emotions I recalled while watching this covered the spectrum. First, some comedy as you watch the Frenchman inexplicably use a driver on the tee, then anger at the pure stupidity of the man in going for the green in two, to utter jaw-dropping amazement at realizing the epic meltdown I am witnessing as he wades into the creek thinking he can still make a shot on his submerged ball. Eventually sadness overcame me when I realized what this meant for the poor fellow, followed finally by fist-pumping joy as he sinks a 10 foot putt to save triple bogey.

Perhaps the Moonwalk Would Have Been a Better Idea

Submitted Thursday, July 02, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Sports
I'm curious as to how anyone was able to determine he was mimicing a dead Michael Jackson. Personally I think it was a tribute to Ed McMahon, but all those racist Canadians think it was Michael just because he's black.

Tamil Tiger leader killed, but did his brother Luigi manage to escape with Princess Toadstool???

Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Headlines
In all seriousness, three cheers that MAYBE this bloody mess is finally over. The Sri Lankan government is far from blameless, but with all the bloody mess' going on around the world I think it's worth noting the few occasions when things go in the right direction.

The World's Longest Par 3

Submitted Monday, April 06, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Sports
The name on the link "The Most Amazing Golf Hole On the Planet" about sums it up. I think I'd be shaking like a leaf on the tee, though.

Big Al's Great Big Stimulus Package

Submitted Friday, February 13, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Business
First off, I'll offer a critique of the just-passed $800 billion package. The ultimate question is whether it will work or not. After six years of school, a master's degree in economics and $40k of student debt, my expert opinion is....maybe.

Single Fan Storms the Court

Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2009 by 3tyAL | Category: Sports
Old worn-out cliche: Students storm the court to celebrate a big win. New version: Guy storms the court...by himself...while the game is still going on.
