Golfer Rahm Removed from Tournament after Positive Test: Covid Tyranny at Its Worst? (Enrique Torner, USA, 06/07/21 2:54 am)

Spanish golfer Jon Rahm, after finishing his third round at the Memorial tournament Saturday, where he was leading by 6 strokes, was told by some official that his COVID-19 test had come back positive. He was forced to quit. He was suffering no symptoms apparently. He had been informed of having been in contact with somebody who was positive before starting the competition, but allowed to compete under certain restrictions. By this action he is losing his likely chance at a $1.7M trophy: Covid tyranny at its worst!

Here is a link with a video worth watching:

JE comments:  Missing an almost certain $1.7 million payday is tyrannical when it happens to you!  Until he got the bad news, Rahm was having a splendid run, including a hole-in-one in the second round. The last time I wagered on a sporting contest was when I lost to WAISer Ed Jajko in the 2012 World Series (San Francisco vs Detroit), but I'd bet here that Rahm's lawyers will get involved.

  • A Forgotten Wager... (David Duggan, USA 06/08/21 3:53 AM)
    How quickly we forget. John E won the bet for Michigan's 2018 NCAA semi-final victory over Chicago's Loyola, getting a ticket to the Cubs-Cards game later that year. That game resulted in Dr. Bob Schenck's membership in WAIS.

    JE comments: David, thank you for the memory jog.  I fondly recall getting to know Dr Schenck (with the bonus of a Cubs victory), but I had forgotten the original cause of that fine day--a winning basketball bet!


    Possibly I should have filed this post under psychology.  Why do I remember my losing bets, but not the winning ones?
