Japan Open 2014

Fantastic coverage of the 2014 Japan Open. This tournament is probably the best tournament in all of disc golf and is held every two years. It did not happen in 2012 because of the earthquake and all the players were really glad it was back.

The Sentinel

This guy watches over hole 15 on my home course. No pencil whippers on this hole.

Weird Al is back

Had to post this. This man is a parody genius. I have always liked his stuff and he is on a roll with his new album "Mandatory Fun." Enjoy.

Citigroup to pay 7 billion...

You knew it was coming. Although several other banks got bigger haircuts than this, Citi has agreed to pay USD 7 billion in the their mortgage settlement. As is usual in these types of settlements it's more than they wanted to pay and less than the Justice Department wanted.

It's over...

Wow! What a tournament. What a month. Well done Germany (champions of the world and well deserved), well done Argentina (you came close, so very close), well done Netherlands (you were a great team and showed poise, creativity and mental as well as physical strength throughout your run) and well done Brazil (without your best player you looked lost and you need to retool at the club level, but you are still the fourth best team in the world). 

Well done to the Ticos (Costa Rica) who were amongst the 8 best teams in the world and well done USA for surviving the group of death and making it into the round of 16. Well done young James Rodriguez for winning the golden boot. You scored in every match you played. Well done Miroslav Klose for becoming the tournament's all time leading scorer with 16 goals. 

Above all, well done Brazil for hosting a month long orgy of viewing pleasure for those of us who love futbol. You did a great job and I for one am sad that it is over. I love the World Cup!
