So Who’s Your Pick to Win the FedEx Cup?

(Please note that today’s post is peppered with subcontext and subtle innuendo. This is my small but shameless attempt to help the struggling PGA Tour keep their so-called “buzz” about the FedEx Cup going. This took a great deal of effort on my part, so I hope you appreciate all the work I put into it.)

Today’s the day. (Finally!) The top 30 in the FedEx Cup race tee off on (or in, depending on how wet the tee boxes are) the East Lake course. To my great surprise, Tiger seems to be everyone’s favorite to win. (Note to readers: That was a tongue-in-cheek remark. I hope you caught it and showed proper appreciation for my great wit.)

Well, I’m going against the grain yet again with my pick. (The vogue these days is to refer to this as a “fantasy pick,” but I think he’s going to win so it’s not a fantasy to me. So there.) I’m choosing PADRAIG HARRINGTON, number 6 in the points race. I don’t know what the Top 5 have to do for him to win the Cup, but I think he can win the tournament. (Yeah, I know he let me down earlier in the playoffs when he chunked one coming down the stretch. But that was then and this is now… and I’m trying to build some EXCITEMENT here, for Pete’s sake!)

Anyway, I don’t think it matters. Paddy’s gonna take it all the way! (Hey, anybody who can get away with snatching the Claret Jug from Stewart Cink's locker ought to be able to win a simple tournament!)

(Whew! I’m glad that’s over. Now I can go watch the tournament and let the Tour worry about all this excitement stuff. Why can’t we just have a good tournament and let it go at that? The Tour just makes too much work out of a simple game…)
