I'm Torn on this One

That was some finish to Round 4 of the U.S. Open, as Tiger Woods nailed that final 10 footer to force a playoff between him and Rocco Mediate on Monday. Now, I also root for Tiger in these things, I love seeing the guy win. I'm a big fan of success, and dominance, I'm always up for a good dynasty. But I am really starting to like this Rocco guy.

There's nothing wrong with rooting for the underdog, and I'm really hooked on Rocco's story. I love that there is this guy that has been playing golf all his life, winning a few tournaments but never really sniffing a title in a major. All of a sudden, this father of three on Fathers Day finds himself leading the U.S. Open, trying to hold back none other than the greatest golfer in the world. I have no idea what to expect tomorrow, and I have no idea who to root for.

I'd take either of them over Lee Westwood though. Sorry Lee.

(On a side note, what a great sports day this has been for me. It started out with a Brewers victory over the Twins, mixed in with some Euro '08 including Turkey's comeback. Next up was the U.S. World Cup Qualifier, where they killed Barbados 8-0. Then you have the exciting finish of Round 4 in the U.S. Open. And now Game Five of the NBA Finals! What a day.)
