--YANKEES OR RED SOX As a fan of the underdog, I'd have to say
--LPGA'S SLOW-PLAY RULE Good idea. Slow play can kill
--BELLY PUTTER A ban would be very hard to enforce.
--SENIOR CARTS Necessary evil.
--SHINNECOCK VS. BETHPAGE I'll go with Bethpage because it's the people's course.
--LONG ISLAND GOLF The best.
--MICHELLE WIE Good for the game. It's too bad she's so young. She
could help the LPGA now.
--TIGER WOODS He should get back together with Butch.
--OPEN WINNER Phil Mickelson. He has the best short game.
