Blue Monday For Real

It’s a Blue Monday for all who had to go back to work. Or school.

But nobody’s feeling as bad as Dustin Johnson. Who goes down in golfing history as the Roberto De Vicenzo of the 21st century.

Dustin, it was an obvious sand trap. Even I, who eschews every golf conversation of my pals David and Gail, inveterate linksters both, know you keep your club off the sand.

So Dustin’s blue.

How blue? Tell ‘em, Fats.

So too, Renee Gork.

Who, until a few days ago when she pulled out a Florida Gator blue ballcap and wore it to a Bobby Petrino press conference, worked for something called Hog Sports Radio.

No more Soooooey Pig Sooooey for Ms. Gork, who happens to be a Florida grad. She’s out of a job. At least in Arkansas.

No levity this Monday in Razorback Country.

Also blue, and I’m not talkin’ Indiana Pacer blue, is Larry Bird’s draft pick Lance Stephenson.

Seems the former Cincy Bearcat and Louisville Cardinal recruit greeted his girlfriend the other morning at 5:00 a.m. And proceeded to push her down a flight of steps.

Then, for emphasis, he banged her head against the bottom step.

The Denver Nuggets are blue too.

Seems star Carmelo Anthony is tired of his Rocky Mountain High, and wants out of Denver. Even though the Nuggets are offering him a three extension at over $20 mill per.

Which story is a boffo opportunity to cue the Bob Seger.

The New York Jets are blue.

Their secondary is getting chewed up and spit out by the Giants. And ace cornerback Darrelle Revis is sittin’ out. Looking for mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money.

* * * * *

Kentucky Wildcat fans are also blue.

Big Blue, that is.

Watching the Coach Cal’s Cats chew up those hosers north of the border has ‘em salivatin’ in the Bluegrass.

    It was not an obvious sand trap, however the PGA says it was a sand trap and that’s the end of that for Dustin Johnson. Having marshaled three PGA events, I can tell you that 40,000 people can easily turn green space into bare dirt over four days which, at first glance, is what the lie looked like. It’s also the first PGA event I’ve seen where spectators are allowed to stand in hazards. But, he broke the rule with an assist from the PGA which, instead of defining these areas as waste areas where you can ground the club, just dropped the whole thing on the players. Dustin Johnson got, hum, sandbagged.
