Even if the Philadelphia Phillies blow this World Series take heart fat heads, there's still good golf
Sure, thanks to Mother Nature (that global warming sure disappears an awful lot) and the bungling incompetence of commissioner Bud Selig, the Philadelphia Phillies may just blow a World Series they should have already won. This will surely send all of Philadelphia’s fat fans (it’s the fattest major city in the U.S. if you hadn’t heard) into near apoplectic fits. (OK, forget the near). Considering how often Philadelphia fans cry about not having won a championship in any of the four major sports in 25 years.
But take heart Philadelphians.
Even if JRoll and Ryan Howard go down as members of one of the biggest choke teams in sports history (and that would be a shame and injustice in their case), there is a silver lining. And no, not the fact that if the Tampa Bay Rays come back and win a suspended Game 5 that is going to stretch over at least three days and then the series, you’ll have a fable to stack up with Cubs’ damn billy goat.
The real good news is that Philadelphia is finally being recognized for its good golf.
Tiger Woods is bringing his tournament, the AT&T National, to Philadelphia (or at least the suburbs) for two years starting in 2010. Thus, a city that actually has much more numerous good public golf options around it then New York City will host the PGA Tour for the first time since 2002 (albeit at a private course).
Still, the resulting publicity will certainly make more golfers at least aware of Philadelphia. It might even make them notice good Philly courses like Broad Run, one of my favorites - a rollicking Rees Jones design in West Chester that includes a 102-foot drop to the green on the par 3 17th.
Surely, that’s plenty of solace for a potentially blown championship. Right?
