Welcome to the new week, everyone. Over the weekend I watched the U.S. Open and took some delight in seeing Dustin Johnson wrest the title of “the Tony Romo of the PGA” from Jordan Speith by three-putting the final hole. I chatted with my dad while watching the tournament, and we agreed that it was the worst-looking golf course we’d ever seen on television and possibly even in person. A lot of assholes out there are clamoring that all the players are dealing with the same conditions, which is true, but asking the best golfers in the world to play on such a garbage surface is like asking that the NBA finals be played on a school playground court with inconsistent basket heights and bent rims. Nobody watched that 3-0 sludgefest in Pittsburgh a few years ago and insisted that it really “tested” the participants. It just sucked – as did the U.S. Open.
Anyhow, that’s enough of a rant to start the week. I could go on about how Apple got caught with their hand in the cookie jar and now everybody seems eager to praise them for taking it out, but instead let’s start the week on a positive note with not one, but TWO editions of KSK radio – the first is the standard Friday post fare, and the second is culled from KSK’s Classic Rock Songs mock draft last spring. Enjoy, and have a great week!
P.S. Joe Buck is as bad at announcing golf as he is at everything else.
P.P.S. Auto-embed of the playlists? Fuck yeah! Nice work, Chris!
