Mickelson pulls a Norman
  • I shut off the TV because Lefty had it won. He's the only leader left on the course. A par on 18 wins it outright. Even a bogey puts him in a playoff. He puts up a double bogey. Monty had also double-bogeyed 18 earlier, allowing Geoff Ogilvy to enter the roster of U.S. Open winners - through the back door.

  • The bad news: less humor than Kant's Critique of Pure Reason.
  • The good news: funnier than Doonesbury.

Weekend Box Office Results for June 16-18, 2006
  • I didn't see any great surprises in the results. As of Friday, it appeared that Cars would dip to third, but the full weekend's results showed a different picture. Cars and three of the four new releases performed on target. The only disappointment was Garfield, which opened in sixth place with $7 milion, about half of the expectation. The "kiddie" field was a bit overcrowded, as Garfield had to scratch and claw against Cars, PG-rated Nacho Libre, and Over the Hedge, so they all suffered a bit from that congestion. Garfield took the biggest hit as the worst film of the four.
  • Tokyo Drift probably benefited a bit from the opposite situation in the action film category, where it was the only choice among films released in the past three weeks.
  • The Top 12 were 7% above last year, and that result was entirely consistent with the results from the previous three weeks.
