Do people still watch golf and/or cricket?

Sachin Tendulkar – best batsman in the world

North Scottsdale is buzzing with golf this weekend as the Waste Management Phoenix Open is in town. Some of the roads that I usually bike on are closed. Some 150,000+ people are at the tournament today to watch that mundane sport. I used to play golf twice a week back in the day and loved it, but times have changed. Once you get the triathlon bug, no other sport compares. Not even cricket! Eat your heart out, Sachin Tendulkar (no worries, I’m his HUGE fan).

My back still hurts. I was to do a 4-hour ride today, but cut it down to a 1.5 hour ride up Happy Valley and through Troon. It was slightly windy and the downhill portions were FAST (30-35 MPH). I rode alone today. If I feel better, Kristi and I will ride for. We’ll see…
