I've always wondered why golf & tennis were "special" and needed quiet.

Consider the noise and stuff yelled at baseball players during a game... and they manage to hit the ball. Basketball players manage to make shots and free throws with noise & distraction.

So I've always wondered why they make a big point of asking for quiet during golf & tennis.

Good points. I just hope golf never turns into Caddyshack 2.

Clearly two separate standards for two very different screen resolutions. I prefer to be more accurate and call 720p what it really is: ED. It just needs a little Cialis to be HD.

Woods played great, the crowd was a little subdued for him, no more insane love from the peanut gallery. Just polite applause and some muted cheers. Nothing like the old days. You can see lots of folks with folded arms refusing to applaud him. 2 plane banners flew by insulting him. And he lost it twice, almost screaming a curse, but he choked it down, barely.

All in all, a good day. He went out of his way to acknowledge encouragement from the crowd. Hit a few of his drop-dead no human can hit that shots.


I wonder if Shooter McGavin was in one of those planes.:lol:
