In this era when ESPN saturates with superlatives like Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons, there are very few sporting events that live up to their hype. In fact, the only individual games that come to mind from the last few years are the Texas/USC Rose Bowl and Colts/Patriots from the '06/'07 playoffs. Well, add Tiger/Rocco at the '08 U.S. Open to the list. As if yesterday's matchup was not enough, the two Americans played 18 holes, ending just as they began, tied. Personally, I thought Tiger would lose after he missed a 50 ft. putt on 16 by about 3 inches. Shows what I know. Either way, props to Tiger and Rocco for making the average sports fan legitimately care about golf, if only for a few hours.
