Since Father’s Day is all about eating and sleeping and not mowing the lawn and eating some more – oh yeah, and watching golf – doesn’t it officially spill over into today?

Thought so.

No one in sports delivers more dramatic success than Dallas golf guru Hank Haney’s pet project, and this morning, thanks to a heart-pounding birdie putt on the U.S. Open’s 72nd hole last night, we get 18 more holes and four more hours of Tiger Woods. Balky knee and all, any doubt Tiger is going to bury Rocco Mediate before Torrey Pines' marine layer burns off?

Update: Barely.

If you’re not into golf but you own a TV and wanna be drunk by noon, try this game me and some buddies stumbled onto Saturday afternoon. Pour your favorite libation. Every time one of NBC’s chatty announcers refers to another by name, take a swig.

Trust me, you’ll (Roger) be (Dottie) passed (Mark) out (Johnny) by (Roger) the (Dottie) back (Johnny) nine (Roger). -- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
