Back From Kentucky

Kentucky Wiskey

And, after a nice bit of escapism to the fine state of Kentucky — one of the only places in the world where you can find that libation called “WISKEY,” which I’m sure is an inbred cousin of the state’s more famous beverage, Bourbon. I, apparently, missed quite a bit during my excursion to see John Calipari’s house. I’m not going to start on the Air McNair business, because I think plenty has already been said — too much, in some cases. But because ours is a business of speculation and guessing, a lot of blogs — even the more popular ones — aren’t above making speculative statements that have no supporting information.

Perhaps I’m too old to join in the National Enquirer approach to unfortunate sports events. Instead, I’d rather remember McNair for being such a warrior.

And then there’s Andy Roddick. What can you say about that fifth set? Incredible? Heartbreaking? Would’ve beaten any other player in the world except Federer? Sounds about accurate to me. But hey, while some are trying to equate last Sunday’s epic loss as perhaps one of the worst a competitor can make, at least there’s the Brooklyn Decker consolation prize.

Anyway, I’m back, meaning IF is back as well. I hope you all had a brilliant Fourth of July holiday, with lots of Kentucky Wiskey to enjoy.

Vacation Time!!!

The Fourth of July weekend is approaching and I’ll be out of the loop until next week. I’ll be traveling back to Lexington to see friends and family, enjoy some fireworks and eat until I pop. I hope all of you have a safe a Independence Day — Go, Andy Roddick — and please, don’t blow yourselves up like that factory in the lead video.

Thanks for your continued support of IntentionalFoul.

Follow-up: Kelly Tilghman Suspended

See YaKelly Tilghman–or that Mouth that Goofed–has been suspended from the Golf Channel for two weeks. Tilghman’s off-handed comments about Tiger Woods have resonated throughout the sports media universe, giving her employer justification for the suspension.

The Golf Channel released a statement, saying:

The GOLF CHANNEL regrets the poorly chosen remarks made by Kelly Tilghman on a recent broadcast and, again, extends our apologies to anyone who was offended.

There is simply no place on our network for offensive language like this.

While we believe that Kelly’s choice of words were inadvertent and that she did not intend them in an offensive manner, the words were hurtful and grossly inappropriate.

Tilghman’s suspension is effective immediately. The Big Lead has some good ideas on how Kelly can spend her time during her “vacation.” Awesomely enough, her Wikipedia page has already been updated.
