It’s all about the ¥.E.N

Korea's little master

Korea's little master

Y.E. Yang’s victory of Tiger Woods in the US PGA was unthinkable, unfathomable and unbelievable. I mean come on, Tiger was wearing his power red, he was in front after the 3rd round, he’s never been beaten from this position at a major in 15 attempts.

What the?

Tiger is only half asian, what chance did he have?

But the little man from Korea was able to take it out.

It shows the shifting centre of the sports world further to the East. And why is this good news for Golf? The East has a number of important things to offer sport, but the most attractive? M.O.N.E.Y

In a time when world economies are facing negative growth, emerging Asian markets are a beacon of light for sports. They offer a previously untapped consumer base with an increasing discretionary income and Athletes that are rising to be the best in the world.

In by-gone eras, the aristocracy of golf with their country club rules and xenophobic views would’ve found the emergence of Asian players intolerable, but their growing acceptance has paved the way for the development of golf courses throughout Asia and increased prominence of the Asian tour.

Tiger struggled in the early part of his career for acceptance (infamously Fuzzy Zoeller made racist remarks during the 1997 US Masters) and it seemed that his ability and skill couldn’t swing the conservatives.

But now the victory of Yang is being described as the dawn of a new era, a brave new world. It seems in sport, as in life, its all about the ¥.E.N (and the Yuan, and the Won and the Rupee and the Baht…)

White guys finish last

Enough to scare any team off drafting a white guy

Enough to scare any team off drafting a white guy

Q. When was the last time a white, American college star, has been a starter on an NBA Champion?

A. John Paxon (1992 Bulls)

Why is it that white guys coming out of college just can’t cut it in the NBA anymore? Look at the amount of great white players over the last 30 years: McHale, Bird, Stockton, West, Walton…but now?

Think of some of the lottery picks!

2006 – Pick 3 Adam Morrison (Charlotte)

Pick 11 J.J. Redick (Orlando)

2004 – Pick 8 Luke Jackson (Cleveland)

Pick 12 Robert Swift (Seattle)

Pick 14 Kris Humphries (Minnesota)

YIKES! What a year!!!

2000 – Pick 7 Chris Mihm (Chicago)

Pick 9 Joel Przybilla (Houston)

It seems white guys, in the NBA, do indeed, finish last..

Indiana knew all this and still drafted this guy?

Take two

Michael Vick’s heading to Philly, well, well, well – from this sports fan, that’s great news! Sure enough he has done some bad things, if by bad you think, not paying a parking ticket, stealing from the locker room, even DUI… then I’m afraid you are so far off the mark its not worth mentioning, however he is back, he’s done his time, he’s remorseful for what he’s done, and more importantly he’s getting a second chance!

Vick in happier days

Yes, the great second chance, does everyone deserve one, probably not, do sports stars that bring fans to the games, inspire kids to get up and do something, and achieve that goal all commissioners desire, turn the sport they play into entertainment, then yes, they deserve a second chance!  If Michael Vick is getting the biggest second chance then who else playing elite sport has also been given a second chance? Lets have a look, from a down under perspective.

A name that springs immediately to mind is Ben Cousins of the AFL. MVP, Premiership medal, club captain, cast out of the game he loves for 12 months due to drug addiction he hung on for dear life as his name was the last read out on pre-season draft day.  In true champion style he has been the shinning light of a dismal team enduring a dismal year!

Ricky Pointing isn’t a name you immediately think of when considering second chances, but the fiery Tasmania with the second most important job in Australia was at a cross roads when he decided to let his fists do the talking at the Bourban and Beef House a number of years back, calls for his baggy green to be handed in at the time look a little misconceived now!

A nasty bouncer…

Sticking with the willow, how many second chances can one star performer get? Just ask Shane Warne, the man capable of turning a ball on, let alone making it spin was afforded several second chances during his career that was sprinkled with text message controversy and marriage breakdown – did Australia’s ‘sporting’ public care? No, they didn’t!

At the end of the day, socially and morally everyone is responsible for their own actions. This is essentially what society is built upon, the second chance is what makes sport, and sports stars enjoyable to watch!

tote and ham and eggs

There comes a time in everyman’s life when one has to chose a European soccer team.. I chose Tottenham and NOT one of the top 4 like most Douche bags do..

MANUfans

First game of the season was on monday and the totes beat Liverpool..! what, no details!?

Ok heres some…Liverpool looked strong and tried to  gain early control of the match, but the Super Spurs are no longer the team of old! And thus the spirit crushing mind blowing upset ensued..
