David Slays Goliath!

I was shocked!  After the way the judges were slobbering over Adam and declaring him the winner, when Ryan announced Kris' name, Beverly and I both jumped up cheering.  I think the best song I have heard him sing this year was last night with Keith Urban.  It was great!

I must say that my opinion of Adam softened last night.  I don't think he could have been more gracious in his loss.  Perhaps he realizes that he hasn't lost.  He will no doubt be a superstar -- just not my style.

Interesting to hear the spin the media is already putting on this:  "America is not ready for the 1st gay idol."  How patronizing is that?  "Not ready."  "Not nearly as enlightened as we media people."

I was saddened to hear that Phil Michelson has had to withdraw from the two local PGA stops because his wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Phil has always put his family 1st.  I remember in 1999 when he was in the final group on Sunday in the U.S. Open.  His wife was expecting their 1st child, and he had a beeper with him.  He said before the round that if she beeped him to alert him that she had gone into labor -- he was withdrawing.

I pray that everything goes well for the Mickelsons, and that his wife is totally healed.

I hope all goes well with the Mickelsons. While I don't watch much golf, Phil is my guy since he swings from the left side.

I'm not so sure the media thinks they are more enlightened as they know it will be a lightning rod that keeps content coming that keeps them employed. Their stuff is sensationalized just so people will read/listen/watch.

Phil will be missed, but he is where he needs to be.

Adam will have a good career...I still don't think it will be GREAT, but good.
