Sergio Garcia at the 2017 Masters Tournament

This is going to be a very exciting final day of the Masters Tournament. To see Sergio Garcia as joint leader – with Justin Rose – on Day 3, within sight of the coveted Green Jacket.

Day 3 Leaderboard

There are so many top players up there within one or two shots of each other. A crowded leaderboard that opens up to any one of them could be this year’s champion. We cannot count off Lee Westwood although he is at 1-under. There is also no guarantee for Jordan Spieth even when he is just 2 strokes off the lead. And so no one can confidently say that Justin Rose or Sergio Garcia or Rickie Fowler will emerge victorious.

The winner for 2017

So it’s difficult to say who will be this year’s winner. But then, well, one hopes very much that come late Sunday afternoon tomorrow Sergio Garcia will be wearing the Green Jacket. For his first time ever.

Amending the Minor Offences Act

I wish to put on record that I am 100% in support of the moves by the government to amend the Minor Offences Act. It is about time.

My only comment is: Nobody bothered about the Act until a pig came along.

Yes, it took a pig to draw everybody’s attention to this major thing. Because only when this particular lady who was suffering from anaemia wrote her name down as “BABI” (Malay for “pig”) on the summons notice issued by a traffic policeman to her that we came to realise that the maximum fine provided for by the Act is only RM100.

One hundred ringgit at the time when, for example, a teacher’s pay was RM300.00 was of course huge in value. And therefore a fine of RM100 would have made an offender very poor. But not now when – again, as an example – a teacher’s pay is around RM3,000.

And so, thank you Mr Pig, for being the reason behind a major change to be done on one of our laws.

Newcastle United and the Championship League

As at the time when this story is being typed, the tale and the story about Newcastle United in the Championship League is quite encouraging to any soul who has read it. In case you missed it, let’s do a bit of copypasting for you:

Of course it would be true that anybody with a weak heart should not look at the Table of Standings for too long. So what if we are leading by only one miserable point? We are leading, ain’t we?

Anyway, for you sour grapes, eat your heart out: the White-Black-Striped Seahorse team are standing on top of the heap right now. And if you have some spare time, and curious to know which teams are sitting right at the bottom, you may want to go here:

Meanwhile, many, many people – be they supporters, fans, or mere observers – are of the opinion (of course they are quite right) that when this season ends and the new one begins, this team will no longer be playing in this present league.

And let me say this: Newcastle will not embarrass their fans and supporters any more.
