    This was the second story on Sportscenter after all the Rory at the U.S. Open stuff. And so it goes, and so it goes.

    Reason No. 7,892 why I don't watch SportsCenter any longer.

    Shouldn't SportsCenter really be called AthleteCenter now? Or CelebrityCenter?

    LBJ remains an oblivious tool, until demonstrated otherwise.

    Not holding my breath.

    ESPN continues to misplay this hand -- badly.

    It's less fawning over athletes than fawning over sports which ESPN (and ABC) broadcast and therefore need to be promoted, however subtly.

    ESPN decided after friday's round that the theme for Friday night was, "How many ways can we beat into the ground the chance that Rory could blow this US Open... just like the Masters!!"

    That jowly jackoff Reilly hammered it... then the bald guy and Andy North...

    It was disgusting. Little to no analysis of WHY Rory was playing so well to get the huge lead. Only that he could BLOW IT!!!

    To be fair, it'll swung the other way now, to "He's a sure bet to win more more majors than Tiger, that's a given. But what about Nicklaus? 90 percent chance or only 87?"

    I try to watch espn as little as I possibly can, and I hate myself every time I do.
