Post Mortem Monday: Megan, Darren

Revised 7/19. 6:58 am.

The Claret is Darren’s. Good for Darren Clarke.

We love when one of these old farts, a guy who has always been on the verge, but no higher, succeeds. Don’t we?

He stayed steady. Dustin Johnson gagged. Phil Mickelson did, well, a Phil Mickelson. But, oh my, did Lefty toy with us, or what? I saw his opening hole, then turned over to watch the Tour de France for a bit. When I returned to the links, PM was tied at the top of the leaderboard.

Then he turned to dust in the wind.

Interesting to me that 12 different linksters have won the last 12 majors. And several have come from Northern Ireland, where playing golf is the equivalent of a Sunday night game at Soldier’s Field in December.

It is said that the champ likes his vino. If so, he’s now got the jug to quaff it from.

Hope for President, but . . . my fantasy is Megan Rapinoe for prom date.

Abby Wambach scores the goals. But Ms. Rapinoe is the one who controlled the games for the U.S. of A..

Unfortunately she didn’t have enough yesterday. And was pulled late, because ????

As much as the women’s soccer team grabbed the country’s attention, they were really never on a roll. Never dominant. Always on the brink of what happened yesterday.

Which is letting the game slip away.

I’m still not sure how that Japanese gal scored that tying goal in regulation? But the stunner was essentially a Golden Goal. The Americans were beaten at that point.

Same Story, Different Season. A bunch of folks have inquired whether there’s more to the story about Kevin Ware’s and Wayne Blackshear’s academic situation than The Rick is telling us?

I do not know.

What I do know is that it’s not a good thing. If it’s July, with college matriculation but a month away, and these player’s haven’t yet fully completed their prep academic resposibilities, something’s amiss.

Wacked in Waco. Mark Morefield is an assistant to Scott Drew at Baylor no more.

He’s pursuing other opportunities, the story goes.

Well, mark my words, he fell on the sword. There could be trouble in the Lone Star State.

The buzz among college hoops recruiting cognoscenti is that Drew’s program is one of the two dirtiest in the game, a major NCAA punchout in waiting. (The other: Thad Matta’s Ohio State Buckeyes.)

    Don’t look down. You have the wrong Johnson.

    Indeed I do, or did. Dustin’s first name is now correct.
