Pretty sure you cay say fairly that Mickelson choked yesterday. He is recognized as one of the best golfers in the world and performed worse than expected. It's a tough course, but he bugled a few shots that shouldn't have been a problem for him.

to be fair we did sorta touch this already - but it had bears. If it had beets or battlestar galactica, we'd be on the next TaN already.

About halfway through season 3 of The Sopranos. I am hooked. I watched six episodes yesterday. Highlight was Christopher's high "speech" at Tony's mom's funeral.

It's not like he missed a 2 foot putt for a playoff on 18.

Your accusing him of choking while playing what was actually a fairly solid round on his part simply because he was in the lead at the start - this makes zero mathematical sense.

Did the 35 out of 70 golfers who shot a 73 or higher yesterday also choke or were they just not even trying since they didnt start the day in 1st place?

Alternatively, there were only SEVEN out of 73 golfers who were even capable of shooting par or better yesterday!

Sorry to question your expert knowledge on the subject statistics.
The overwhelming majority of those golfers were not in the hunt. To choke means to blow your opportunity at winning when it is right there in front of you. Phil had it in front of him for all 72 holes. Its even more in front of you when you're leading after 54 holes, and even at points in the final 18. Take all of the golfers you want from yesterday and all of their scores and they still have no relevance to this discussion, as they weren't even in the hunt for the win. It was a 4 man race at best for the last 2 hours of the tournament. The other guys were just there, playing their rounds.

If you want to get into your whole statistical nonsense viewpoint again, not all golfers were subject to the same trials, so the population average doesn't tell the whole story. A number of golfers finished their rounds prior to any changes in weather, be it temperature, humidity, or even the period of rain that hit just a shade before 6, right in the back stretch of the final few groups. Totally changes the course and the way it plays. Sometimes for the better, sometimes worse, depending on the hole and lie of the ball at the given time. You can't compare someone in the last group to someone in the first group as they were subject to different trials.

It is logically impossible to so ignorantly put all trials on a level playing field. Not all of sports are explained by statistics. I'm sorry you're so mad about someone calling you on your ramblings.

Nice thanks.

I'm watching the episode where Paulie and Christopher get lost in the Pine Barrens. It's hilarious

That is considered one of the best shows of the entire series and you'll see

Spoil:
Paulie and Tony's relationship isn't the same afterward

One of my favorite scenes from that episode is when Tony goes to pick Bobby up and looses it after seeing his outfit

Btw I read the imdb summary of that other show and it sounds like a nice premise. Looking forward to it.

When my ex was trying to get me hooked on the show, that was the episode she showed me. It was a very good one.

And I know I wasn't the only one who thought of the Russian when they announced the Boston bombing suspects were Chechens.

"He killed 16 Czechoslovakians! He was an interior decorator!"
"His house looked like ****."
