Bust a move, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

Fore . . .
Darren Clarke won the WGC-NEC Invitational tournament. It was a great win for the portly Irish golfer, but a staggering blow to the entire “Golfers are athletes” contingent.

Now that’s hot
*Man it has been hot. Today I was sweating like Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to say Gubernatorial.

Appreciative crowd
*Sprinter Jon Drummond played the ugly American in Paris lying down on the track in front of 58,000, refusing to leave the World Track & Field Championships after false starting out of the 100 meters. The French crowd applauded and cheered. Because when it comes to lying down in the face of adversity, nobody is more appreciative than the French.

That will do it
Singer Bobby Brown was arrested – again – for parole violation while having dinner with his wife, Whitney Houston. Authorities were notified when Bobby tried to order his coke by the pound instead of the glass.

Bust a move
What is the deal with gas prices in California? They are out the roof. Everybody’s attention has been on Arnold and Cruz “Bust a move” Bustamonte, nobody kept an eye on Gray Davis who snuck around raising gas prices.

A close one
In the Little League World Series, Japan defeated Florida 10-1. Or as the San Diego Padres call a 10-1 game, a cliff hanger.

So sad
After 43 years of blindness, Michael May of Nevada, can see again. The bad news? His sight returned while he was watching the movie “Gigli”
