Here it is.
If you'd like to read the lyrics I painfully transcribed, check it out here.
Human nature is not always very flattering when you look in the mirror, and it’s
obvious some of the visible wrinkles come from taking perverse pleasure in
another man’s failures.
That other man is, in this case, LeBron James. It’s fairly obvious that I’m not
the only one cheering for his defeat.

SAN FRANCISCO – Thanks Graeme McDowell.
The 2010 U.S. Open champ’s missed putt that failed to force an 18-hole playoff allowed the USGA to offer six tee times on Monday after the U.S. Open for some media members to play The Olympic Club.
Some friends have suggested that I was a lucky winner with a 12:20 p.m. tee time. You be the judge.

SAN FRANCISCO – The heavyweight marquee grouping of the U.S. Open on Thursday morning looked more like a Wednesday pro-am. Playing the role of the high handicappers were the last two Masters Tournament champions.
While Tiger Woods cruised along the back 10 at the Olympic Club with a steady dose of surgical golf that looked very familiar, partners Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson flailed away like a couple of amateurs.
The best story at this U.S. Open isn’t Tiger Woods.
It isn’t defending champion Rory McIlroy.
It isn’t major-deprived world No. 1 Luke Donald.
It isn’t Lee Westwood, Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner or any of the so-called favorites taking on The Olympic Club.
The best story of the 2012 U.S. Open is – as he himself calls it – “a disabled 40-year-old golf coach.”
Funny thing, it was also one of the best stories at the last U.S. Open at Olympic in 1998.

There is nothing random about U.S. Open pairings. The blue coats at the USGA have long had fun trying to come up with creative threesomes, and were way ahead of the PGA Tour’s curve in creating the marquee matchups.
Next week when the 2012 U.S. Open tees off on the first and ninth holes (that’s not a mistake, the split tees will include the ninth hole because of its proximity to the clubhouse compared to the 10th), some eye-opening and thought-provoking groups will be sent forth to wage battle against par at The Olympic Club.
I was warned within five minutes of sitting down at the dinner table.
Earlier this month I was given an 11th hour invite to crash a longstanding tournament at Yeaman's Hall Club. Having heard countless testimonials about the Seth Raynor classic near Charleston, S.C., it was a no brainer to rearrange my schedule to fit in a few days with a bunch of strangers.
Perhaps I spoke too soon about the future of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
In a week when speculation about Florida State and Clemson possibly abandoning the ACC for the football-first Big 12 seemed far-fetched, suddenly it might make sense for Virginia Tech and Miami to join them in jumping ship.
Well, at least if football relevance is the driving financial force (which it is). You can also kiss Notre Dame goodbye, commissioner John Swofford.
