The Loon stayed up to the wee hours to watch Adam Scott fluff the British Open (that’s golf people, golf!). Despite secretly hoping the Big Easy (Ernie Els) would hold up the cup, I would never have predicted the Aussie would stuff up the last 4 holes. Goddammit, you were leading by 4 shots, you only had four friggin holes to go, you just had to par ONE of them. Why Scott, why? Ernie, who looked decidedly sheepish to have won by someone else’s misfortune, came out of the clubhouse to accept the trophy. Meanwhile Scott will be trying to avoid picking up a newspaper or watching the news for at least a month. Hmm, no one wants to see “Biggest Choke in Sports History” next to their name!!!
….. Italian motorbike rider Riccardo Russo who made a booboo by celebrating his CIV Championship win a lap too early . Awkward. As he was celebrating the other 13 riders zoomed passed him . Needless to say he came in last.
Sheez, some reporters are just so precious!
Winning £9.7million in the lottery, priceless. Losing it all in an 8 year spending spree, even more friggin priceless.
