Today in the bag I'm talking US Open golf, the NBA Finals, and the Euros.
Stay out of the heat, and click below for today's bag...
US Open Sunday Without Tiger -
The rush to say that Tiger Woods is 'back' reached a milestone Friday afternoon. With the former #1 not only in contention, but tied for the outright lead after two rounds, the hype machine began to churn its rusted-out wheels. "He's back," pundit's claimed, "he's a shoe-in to win." Then the weekend hit.

Heat take a 2-1 lead -
I thought the Thunder had a great chance to get their one in Miami Sunday night, but it was not to be. Some 3rd quarter foul trouble left the Thunder bench exposed, and a 10-point lead was quickly crushed by the Heat steamroller. I still think the Thunder win the series, but they have to win Game 4 to have any chance.

Netherlands and Russia out at Euros -
In rather curious fashion, two of the best teams in the world failed to advance in the Euros. Soccer super-power Netherlands failed to even get a single point out of their three games in Ukraine, and Russia suffered a massive upset at the hands of Greece, which sent them spinning out of the tournament.
