. Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS TUESDAY, JUNE 17- THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008 31 Hook Continued from page 29 caustically witty and intelligent and not afraid to take a joke if it comes across the fiat screen in- side his forehead. Last week on a sports talk program the mod- erator read an email to a panel of sportswriters. Raul of V'meland writes, "Do you think the Eagles will be more successful this season now that Andy Reid is parting his hair differently?" Conlin quickly retorted, "I can't believe he left the blueberry harvest to write that email." Conlin was later suspended for what was considered a racially insen- sitive remark. You know I liked the joke and believe that any group offered blanket immunity from jokes has suf- fered the ulti- Dame Edna mate insult. Barry Humphries, who dresses up as the character Dame Edna, had several small countries after him a few years ago when he said, "The only reason to learn Spanish is to talk to the man running your leaf blower" A firestorm of criticism fol- lowed the comment and Humphries said in his defense, "I'm a comedian!" TIGER IS HUMAN! I just want- ed to write those three words, which represent a truism and fallacy at the same time, because tigers are not human. Back off, all the "Tiger Woods is from another planet" hype. I like the guy. I don't play golf- so I don't do air swings in causal conversation - but I'U watch the drama of everyone in the word trying to derail the Tiger circus train from its ultimate destiny. On Sunday, June 15, Tiger gen- fly stroked a putt to send The U.S. Open into overtime and some loser in the gallery pierced the silence of the tense air, screaming, "Get in the hole!" I thought, "What a freakin' loser boy." Is Tiger Woods the most fit and well-conditioned athlete in any sport? No, he ain't! I'd have to put him up against my dog Rafael Nadal who ran Roger "Rabbit" Federer - Tiger's best buddy - all over the court as Nadal dominated, winning his fourth straight French Open. Nadal's fitness level has been described as just plain crazy. SNIPPETS - The 53rd Annual Blue-Gold All-Star Football Game is Saturday,June 21, at the University of Delaware.

Marshall, a Lewes boy from way back, went on to a very success- ful career at C.W. Post as the head football coach and since I had this column I always fol- lowed his careen I was fortunate to have known Coach Marshall in a casual-con- versation-sports-guy kind of way since his return to Lewes, and always found him to be such a gracious person willing to share stories of his coaching years and to offer insight into the direction the game was trav- eling. Godspeed to Coach Tom Marshall!
