Here’s a quick peek at what APIAS writer’s are wondering this afternoon. Step into their brains for a moment.
TGC wonders, “will Tiger make a come back at the Open?” Well Mike Weir is eating Beth Page Black up with a 6 under 64 in his first round and Phil is one under. Tiger’s opening round +4 leaves him a lot of work but we’ve all seen the guy catch fire before and the playing conditions for his first round were not ideal. The magic eight ball says “outlook not likely” but we say don’t count that man out until Sunday comes and goes.
Smoothron ponders, “now that Kobe has finished off the Magic what will I do with my sports viewing time?” Well Smooth you’ll just have to tune in to the Metros games a bit more often. But with them sitting at 4-6 their last ten you might as well watch A’s games with myself because it’s going to be a long summer for us both if this continues.
eDay thinks to himself, “why are elephants scared of the National League?” That’s simple, the A’s are 8-3 against the AL in the month of June and 1-5 against the NL. The bats put up only 14 runs in 6 games on the NL road trip. That will not win you ball games no matter how good your young pitching is (only given up 27 in that time frame).
2SL would like to know, “how sweet are the beaches in San Diego and is Iowa really that boring?” Our fourth writer is about to hit the road for a couple weeks so you won’t be hearing from him much over that time. But to answer his questions, the beach in San Diego is about as awesome as the California burritos and I had a brother that lived in Cedar Rapids so yes, Iowa is that boring.
