The teevee has been telling

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 01, 2000

The teevee has been telling me that the upcoming US Open is, and I quote, “Golf’s Greatest Championship.” In the past, that same television has told me that the British Open, the PGA Championship, and the Masters are each, and again I quote, “Golf’s Greatest Championship”. What am I, a simpleton when it comes to golf (among other things), supposed to believe? Will I ever be able to trust my teevee again? Well, word comes from Dack, the only golf enthusiast I know, that “Most Yanks would probably argue that the US Open is the greatest championship, but any golf fan living outside the US would argue that it’s the British Open. The [British Open] is truly the *world’s* golf championship.” Now I can sleep once more and watch teevee without impunity.
