Fun With the TV Clicker

Fun with the TV clicker late this afternoon and early evening.

Went back and forth between NBC and watching Tiger Woods put the finishing touches on his WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral in Miami.

This was a wire-to-wire win for Woods.  It was his second win of the season and was his 76th career PGA Tour win, which is now only six behind Sam Snead's all time record of 82.  This is a record that Tiger is sure to bag, probably sometime in 2014 by the looks of how he has been playing so far this year.

The other programming being watched was the USA's 9-4 win over Canada in the World Baseball Classic.  This win advanced the USA out of pool play and into the second round of the WBC.

Nothing like a little jingoism to infuse some life and interest into the WBC.  I believe that the USA will play either Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic in the first round of a single elimination bracket-style tournament.  Single elimination is a tough way to go, and this is especially true in baseball.  Makes it a real crap shoot, but at least there is now some rooting interest in this event.

The other exciting news from this game is that Jameson Taillon was the starting pitcher for Team Canada and pitched four innings, struck out three, and gave up two runs, only one earned.  Those were real big league players he was pitching against for the USA, so that was indeed good news.
