Dunno, some people here might be fans of other teams in different sports, whatever...but if you've been a Redskins fan this whole time, you're not much of a fairweather fan.

I've lived in North Carolina my entire life. The Braves are the closest MLB team to me. They used to be on TBS every night, as I was growing up. I used to make trips to Fulton County Stadium in my youth to watch a team that, at that time, was routinely among the worst in baseball. It wasn't uncommon for the Braves to draw 5,000 then. Sorry, if you were under the assumption that I jumped on their wagon in the early 90s.
Btw, I started to PM you earlier about the Uptons. What are your thoughts on them coming to Atlanta?
Oh yeah, and before I forget. I'm sure you're gonna next ask me how I became a Redskins fan, since I've lived in NC all my life. Well, that's been explained many times over the years also. But I'll go there again: It's simple. Growing up, the Redskins were the team shown in this market nearly every Sunday. I started watching sports long before the Panthers arrived on the scene. Never once considered dropping the Redskins, for the Panthers. Do I blame the Redskins fans here that did? Nope. But at the same time, it's completely understandable how I stuck with them. And if you don't know, there are countless numbers of Redskins fans like me in this area, to this day. If you doubt that, then I recommend taking in a Redskins-Panthers game here sometime. It's like an extra home game, those years.
For the record, yes, I was a big Murphy fan growing up. He was pretty much the ONLY positive thing about that franchise in those days. Why is that funny?

What, no Tiger Woods bump this weekend?
Didn't hear anything about it
Heard something about Rory doing something in his free time since he failed but whatever. Haters just hate. Tiger is elite
As most of you know, I'm not a fan of Tiger's. But at least he didn't pull that stunt Rory did. Rory was on his way to missing the cut. But instead of finishing his round, he chose to take the wimpy way out and withdraw. Which would have been fine, had he actually had a legit reason to WD. But he claimed it was because of a "toothache". Ok, lame, but accepetable. But the toothache excuse came after he had already told one reporter that he was WD-ing because "he wasn't in a good place, mentally". Weak.

You haters are just going to pounce on every negative story, but when he does well, "WAIT TILL IT'S A MAJOR!" "NON-MAJOR EVENTS DON'T COUNT"
That in no way means I think he's going to continue playing like this, going forward. All golfers go through ruts like this. Relax.
Who cares? He missed the cut with Rory at Dubai too. It's irrelevant.
When he struggles, everyone wants to come out and criticize, but when he's doing well, everyone is quiet or dismisses it as "luck" or "it's not a real event". The memorial was a real event. Let's not jump the gun a few weeks into the season.

Like I said, relax. You're getting bent out of shape for nothing.

But like I said, I give him props for at least toughing it out. Rory won this same tourney last year, yet pussed out this year. He was on his way to possibly shooting an 80 on Friday and missing the cut. Tiger actually picked a good week to be awful. Because of what Rory did, that's all anyone really wants to talk about.

For the record, Tiger was T37. Also, only 4 guys shot under par Sunday, in rough conditions. 74 wasn't an awful score.

Did you just say Tiger is on fire? Getting bounced in the match play, now this? Dude might pull another major out of his ass, but as a week end, week out threat to win every tourney, those days are gone.

And as for the last part you bolded. I was talking about giving him props for "toughing it out" at the Honda Classic. In other words, instead of packing up and leaving like Rory did, he took his lumps.
