    If you have access to HBO don't miss Frank DeFord's update on the kid from this month's show. It's a tearjerker for all times.

    Between this piece and the lede piece that Bryant Gumbel worked himself, a particular good month for the show.

    It's become "can't miss" viewing for me, and I'm not much for programs besides films and live sports broadcasts.

    Best show on television... by a mile.

    And, BTW, where the fuck is Tiger Woods in all this?

    He should have played a round with the kid by now.

    Probably a good thing he's not around. Tiger would've bet the kid $50 a hole, then had Stevie Williams throw the kid's big wheel in a lake when he didn't pay up.

    Sigh. My phone will ring any second and my Dad and I will have the same conversation we have every couple weeks:

    Dad: "Did you watch Gumbel the other night?" (he never calls it Real Sports)
    Me: "I don't get HBO."
    Dad: "Well (pause) ... you gotta punch up the story on the kid golfer." (as a journalist I apparently get some outer space all-inclusive TV feed.)
    Me: "I don't get HBO."
    Dad: "Isn't it on the computer somewhere?" (not online, "on the computer")
    Me: "Um, sure Dad. I'll go look." (white lie)

    Yeah, things got dusty in the Appgrad05 Manor when Dad/Caddie came home.

    Haven't seen the update yet, but I'm sure it will be around shortly.
