Big Sydney - Golf pushed back another week

These lousy kids.

Last year they cooperated. Only one team even made it to the playoffs last year, and they did me a favor by losing in the first round.

That gave me a chance to join the Washington professional sports teams in their favorite pastime ... early tee times!

And take a look this year. They're all on their way to the same fate this season.

Redskins: They stink, even though they've won four in a row.

Capitals: They stink, even though they paid a lot of money for Mick Jagr.

Wizards: They stink, even though they paid just a little bit of money for Michael Jordan, who gave it away along with his leaping ability.

Yes sir, last year I was fighting those guys for the prime 12:10 tee time at Congressional. But the locals decided to put up a fight this year and show for the postseason, and thus, I must continue with the prognostication.


However, even football can't keep me away from the Thanksgiving table for long. I'm cutting this one short to get back to my turkey and gravy and stuffing and potatoes and gravy and relish and cranberry sauce and ham and gravy and pork and bacon and gravy and rice and spam and gravy and biscuits and gravy and pumpkin pie and sweet po ... wait a minute, did I say rice?

Well, you gotta start thinking healthy at some point.

On with the predictions. Last week 7-4 (.636). Season 186-73 (.718).
