Hour 2 began with golf expert Brad Faxon. John Dennis asked about the dullness of the British Open, and how the sport does not have a leading figure right now, exacerbated by the mediocre play of Tiger Woods.
Said Faxon: “I don’t see an end for him yet. ‘¦ He’s got some work to do.”
Halfway through the hour, the guys brought up Don Banks’ column on SI.com, mentioning highlights of the piece, extracting that most of it revolved around quarterbacks and their impact on the league.
Talking about Wes Welker, Banks says in the article that the Patriots receiver could play in the opening game of the season in September. The guys talked about the “eerie sense of calm” the fan base always has felt with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady at the helm, but how this year could be challenging for the Patriots. They also brought up Logan Mankins and the contract issues he is dealing with.
Caller of the Hour: Steve from Worcester called in to say he was “glued to the TV” for the British Open, explaining that watching a new face come in and grab his attention was good for the game of golf.

Dennis & Callahan opened up the first hour talking about Mel Gibson and the recent news that he plans on moving back to Australia with his ex-wife Robyn. Next, they brought up the disappointment of the British Open Sunday, noting that nothing of significance happened.
They discussed how “dull and predictable” the final round was, and how the biggest story of the weekend was Tiger Woods and his once-again below-average performance in a major tournament. Somehow, the best golfer in the world is now considered an underdog, with very few experts picking him to win any major championship. The guys questioned whether he could possibly win four more majors to tie Jack Nicklaus for most all-time.
Next, they discussed Meterparel’s chances of winning the Sexiest Man Alive award, citing Mel Gibson’s victory in 1985. They also questioned why no sports figures are ever included in the annual award, mentioning Tom Brady.
Regarding the Red Sox, the guys referenced Steve Buckley’s article in the Herald, speculating that after this 10-game road trip to the West Coast, the hometown team could be out of playoff contention.
Meterparel mentioned Mike Cameron’s solo home run in the ninth Sunday afternoon, sarcastically stating that the oft-injured outfielder has the potential to carry the team offensively on the upcoming trip.
Michael Jordan‘s recent comments about LeBron James joining the Miami Heat were brought up, leading the guys to discuss Adrian Wojnarowski’s recent column about it being a premeditated coup. Meterparel brought up the point in the column that indicated Doc Rivers would at some point join the Heat.
Quote of the Hour: “Not one of them wants to be a one-man wolf pack.” ‘ Jon Meterparel joking about the new Big Three in Miami, referencing the movie “The Hangover”
