1860 1st British Open Men's Golf, Prestwick GC: Willie Park Sr. wins inaugural event by 2 strokes from fellow Scot Tom Morris Sr
15 years ago tonight. The entire balance of the universe was thrown irrevocably outta whack. The filthy Red Sox won the first of four games in a row, with the help of a ketchup packet stuffed into a sock, after being down three games to none to the heroic NY Yankees. Mariano Rivera was proven to be human after all, I never stopped hating Curt Schilling, and @Covemastah got a huge woody on this historical date.
PS- the ketchup covered sock didn’t happen on this date, but needs to be mentioned nonetheless as Schilling is a huge dooshcanoe.
The Sox just spotted the Yankees three games just to make it interesting, and then swept the rest.
Deal with it.
Don’t make me bring Mike Mussina over for some brisket.
My 4 hr woody has lasted for 15 yrs and still loving it !!!!!
