The Barclays Picks Are Up!
Thirty one golfers and 13 uniques is pretty sweet...
Let's Get It On!
When I was a young boy I sniffed a lot of glue
Mom sent me to rehab, they told me what to do
We didn't have much money; the lord picked up the tab
They made me write him love songs, sitting in my room

Now I just drink whiskey and drive around my friends
Get a haircut, get a job, maybe born again
And if you're living badly, we'll tell you how to live
Dead, drunk, and naked...

If you're out there listening, I just want you to know
I been doing just fine, psychiatrists tell me so
My scars are patched up; my arms have almost healed
My demons almost tranquilized, my pains almost killed

Me and old Jack Daniel's, become the best of friends
We got all them Baptist's to die for our sins
I know the lord is coming
The South will rise again! (Dead, drunk, and naked)

Daddy used to tell me, everything comes down to what they say about you when you're not around
And I wish that he was here now, I'm sure he would be proud
No one talks about me; the voices are too loud.

So if you come to see me, I'm sure you'll be impressed
By how well I'm behaving and how well I'm dressed
If you come to see me, hope you're coming soon

Dead, drunk, and naked...

- Drive By Truckers

Yea, that's pretty much the way I felt making my picks this week.  Still feel that way after round one. No hope but hey, just happy to be here... more or less.

Enough of me and the Truckers.  We chose 31 golfers for this first playoff tourney.  Fellow competitors, at least for the first two rounds, Rory and Tiger, tied for most popular, showing up 13 times each.  Adam Scott was next in line, making the cut for 9 players.  Bubba and Keegan are on 7 teams each.  Carl Pettersson, the man with far too many unnecessary letters in his name, got the nod 6 times.  Van Pelt and Kuchar were chosen 5 times each.  Phucking Phil is the lone four-bagger.  Dustin, Justin, Ernie, Sergio and Gray-me are the treys.  The deuces are Stricker, Westwood, Senden and Poulter.

Thirteen uniques.  Hugh is the clear leader with six.  Mike M. has 2.  Chris, Dan, Randy, Bill and Dave A. have one each.  The other 8 of us are Dead, Drunk and Uniqueless.

The Playoffs.  Isn't this too early for such a thing?  The NBA waits until it's warm to do theirs; MLB waits until it's cold... what should golf wait for?  Hurricanes?  Actually they did that last year and didn't have the balls to play through it.  Just Do it and get to the Ryder Cup.  Nobody really cares what lucky clown wins $50 billion or whatever this thing pays.  Aw well, we've still got a golf pool to play the next three weeks and we've got a nice set of picks going this week... and the uniques are going to make the difference.  They certainly are after round one.  And no matter how loud the voices are, I still think it's gonna be a good one...

Let's get it on!
