U.S. Open Thursday

Posted by Matt on June 14, 2007

As everybody knows the 2007 edition of the men’s U.S. Open golf championship gets rolling today and if you haven’t gotten a chance to check out “Charlie Hustle” preview, there is no time like the present. The link is on the left and you can follow all of the action live online with the USGA’s FREE webcast.

The Cincinnati Reds fell to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of California of Kansas City last night by a score of 3-6. That ended a ‘run’ of sorts where the Reds had won four of their last five. Freshman phenom Homer Bailey takes the hill for today’s rubber-match in Cincinnati. First pitch is at 12:35PM EST.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is reportedly giving slugger Jason Giambi an ultimatum: talk or be suspended. The absurdity of this cannot be explained in mere words, Selig is merely looking for a scapegoat as if Giambi is the only player to have taken steroids in recent history. More to come on this story as it develops, possibly with the third incarnation of “You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me.” The MLB still isn’t in everybody’s good graces these days and it is on the verge of shambles.

Cincinnati Reds’ free-swinger Adam Dunn is being shopped around for a possible trade with some of the top possibilities being San Diego, Los Angeles, Detroit, Atlanta, Houston, and Chicago (AL). With Dunn’s defensive abilities, or lack thereof, the Reds may not get much for him but it is apparent that his days as a Redleg are numbered. Ken Griffey, Junior is also coming up in trade talks with nothing being confirmed. Junior, of course, has to approve any trade but would allegedly approve a move to Atlanta or Chicago (AL). This, however, is all heresay but with the trade deadline still six weeks off, things may get interesting in the ‘Queen City.’

Game 4 of the NBA Finals is tonight and coverage begins at 8:30PM EST but I am assuming nobody will be tuning in as this series is effectively over. The Cleveland Cavaliers might pull one out at home to record the team’s first NBA Finals victory in front of the home town crowd but that will probably be it. I am sure the San Antonio Spurs want to seal the deal in front of their own crowd but one win is all the Cavs will get, if they get any at all as they’re as good as done, and the Finals will end in Cleveland.

UPDATE: The greatest stadium promotion EVER. Minor League Baseball team to mimic Billy D.’s decision making, allowing you to try to get out of the agreed ticket price and negotiate a new one. Oh, how I love Minor League Baseball…

Things are relatively slow in the world of sports but the U.S. Open should make for an exciting weekend and things are really starting to heat up in the MLB between Bud Selig and Jason Giambi. As always, stay tuned as we’ll be on the horn if anything breaks.
