A great Father's Day weekend, the Phils not withstanding

Don't look now but that great start by the Phillies is starting to disappear in the rear-view window.

Remember when the Phils were stunningly seven games over .500? This morning they've reversed course. They now sit seven games under .500 at 30-37. That matches their season low-point.

Last night they got hammered again by the Blue Jays. But it wasn't just the numbers that were ugly in the 13-2 loss. The Phillies for one of the few times looked like a team that had lost interest. They committed four errors, including the sight of Odubel Herrera flinging a ball into the seats under the mistaken belief that he had just recorded the third out of the inning. Unfortunately, that was only the second out.

Maybe that's one manager Pete Mackanin decided to hold a team meeting after the game.

This is where everyone expected the rebuilding Phillies to be this season.

It's just hurts a little more after that surprising start.

But there is salvation, especially is you are, like me a golf nut.

Father's Day weekend always means one thing.

It's time for the U.S. Open Golf Championship.

Most of yesterday's Round One at Oakmont Country Club outside Pittsburgh got rained out.

But the weekend forecast is looking good for one of the great sports events of the year. And this Sunday you'll probably be able to go straight from watching the Open to the opening tip of what should be a riveting Game Seven of the NBA Finals pitting Steph Curry and Golden State vs. LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

Happy Father's Day!
