Today's Sports News
Wednesday, 2005 July 13 - 11:06 pm
There's so much happening today, even enough to warrant a series of sports-related mini-posts.

Michelle Wie won her first-round match play event at the U.S. Amateur Public Links tournament. Hooray! Five more wins would get her an invitation to the Masters next year. Can you imagine that? I looked into getting tickets, though, and it's next to impossible. I should probably just find an LPGA event to go watch; I hate to say it, but the LPGA is pretty hard up for spectators. I think I read somewhere that for the last LPGA event, if you spent $30 at a local grocery store, you could get two free tickets. Um.

Hockey is back. There's a ton of changes and the league will seem totally different, but at least they're going to play. I gotta tell you, going to watch redneck Carolina Hurricanes hockey is a blast, even if the beer does cost eight bucks a pop.

Lance Armstrong is kicking ass. Again. That guy is superhuman. I think it'll be great to watch him retire at his peak, after a glorious seventh win. That's definitely the way to go out.

I've gotten invited to join a fantasy football league. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a way to pretend that you're a football owner and coach... you pick real NFL players and you have statistics-based "games" against other teams. It's kind of like Dungeons and Dragons, except with football players instead of wizards and stuff. In other words, it's just a little bit geeky. People try to brush off the geek factor by saying Look! It involves sports! But anything that involves competing to see who's the best at statistical precognition isn't exactly a sport.

I'll probably join just for the camaraderie. And I'll probably lose. But that's okay.

My mom is an LPGA groupie; she and her friend Betty, and sometimes even my dad, fly off all over the place, at least a couple of times a year, to follow Lori Kane (or whoever her latest favourite is) around the course and cheer.

They even went to the Dinah Shore tournament this year! Since I'd just watched the L Word episode about this event, I was highly amused.
