Saturday Sports Open Comment Thread: Golf, Soccer, And Bulldogs Winning Stuff All Over The Place.

Chris Brunskill

I don't know that anyone really hates Martin Kaymer. But if you are that one person who really, really doesn't want Kaymer to win the U.S. Open at Pinehurst it's worth noting that former Georgia Bulldog Brendon Todd is basically your best shot at avoiding that outcome. Todd starts the day alone in second, a mere 6 shots behind the leader.

If soccer is more your thing, and I have it on good authority that for some of you that's the case, it is of course also that time for the beautiful game's World Cup. Yesterday saw Holland beat Spain on an unbelievable goal (and four more). Today Colombia takes on Greece at noon, Costa Rica and Uruguay do battle at 3 p.m., England takes on Italy at 6 in a game that will pit the pessimistic force versus the geriatric object, and Ivory Coast will man the pitch against Japan to cap the action at 9.

In other Bulldog sports news, the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships are going on in Eugene, Oregon, where Georgia's Kendall Williams won a national title in the heptathlon yesterday. As a true freshman, I look for big things from Williams in the future. The men sit in third place going into Saturday behind Oregon and Florida (I hate Florida), but the men have no more competitors left to put points on the board, so that position is likely to be ceded to the field. The women are fifth but have two competitors in this afternoon's high jump event, including Leontia Kallenou, who won this year's indoor title and finished fourth in last year's outdoor meet.

So here's your assignment for the day: kick back, grab a beverage, root on the 'Dawgs, enjoy the strange ways of soccer fans from all around the world (like putting mayonnaise on french fries and letting chickens pick the winners) and . . .
