On sports and the applicable cartoon reaction

From Mike Kern's U.S. Open story in the Daily News:
"Mickelson stood on the final tee holding a one-shot lead. So even a bogey would have left him in an 18-hole playoff today. But he proceeded to push his drive way left. His next shot caught a tree and came down in the rough in front of him. His third again went left into a greenside sand trap. His blast out rolled all the way across the putting surface and into more nasty stuff. From there, the best he could do was pitch it back 10 feet past the cup. At least he made the putt for double bogey."

From the Edmonton Journal, tonight's Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 aka the finest event in all of sports:
"They have done it, without a doubt. They haven't merely elevated their game, they've lifted an entire, hockey-wild city. One more similar performance and the Oilers will have elevated Edmonton back where it belongs, smack on top of the hockey world."

And, on Marcus Hayes' story that the Phils are standing behind Charlie Manuel:
Pat Gillick considered the question, glided to a halt and smoothly uttered: "The manager's status? There's no change."
