Not quite a fairy tale ending


This week is like a movie filled with broken dreams.

Tiger Woods was welcomed with no holds-barred-cheering from the gallery of ardent fans eager to see him triumph over this major 'life changing chapter' in his life. It was all love and great vibes on the first day of the Augusta National Masters. Tiger was smiling, the icy demeanour was gone etc etc etc. He came to Augusta to win, one way or the other.

By the end of it all, the press, and fans, were eager to turn on him and label Tiger Woods as the Bad Boy of golf as opposed to human story Good Boy Mickelson. I think it's great that Mickelson finally achieved what he set out to do at Augusta, perhaps benefitting from the intense scrutiny Woods never enjoyed while on the golf course pre or post scandal. Great that in their moment of intense pain, the Mickelsons could savour a momentous moment. But let's not cheapen his victory and joy with Amy by spinning off a Bad Boy Good Boy pow wow.

The fairy tale ending did not happen. Don't deny we all secretly hoped for it so that this terrible black spot on one of golf's greatest will finally go away. Quit with the labels, the over simplication of people's lives.

I am glad the guy is reevaluating the whole scenario [I really wanted to say circus]




Another broken dream. I was looking forward to seeing Rooney as the toast of the season - with a Man-U victory. Now, even Ferguson was the first to admit its unlikelihood.

Ahhh, Berbatov. All you had to do was to take the lead, rise and shine.

I am still looking forward to the World Cup but the EPL ended for me two days ago.

Aunty Ninot,
Perhaps if the Woods had cats instead of dogs....wishful thinking. In sports, there's always next year, next season, next week. No worries, mate. purrr....meow!

See him in action in two weeks time. I am not a fan, just an observer.

Had a look at Aimy's blog - anyone else blogging?
