    The greatest head to head battle i ever witnessed was Phil Hellmuth and Johnny Chan heads up no-limit hold’em at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles 1989. I was the dealer. Before the flop Chan bet $50,000 (real money not a tournament). Phil thought about it for 20 minutes while i held the sweaty deck in my hand. After 20 minutes Hellmuth folded pocket kings. Chan showed pocket aces. What are the chances? How did he know? You are the best Gary V., don’t ever change!

    Gary – Once again you confuse me (but then again, that’s not all that difficult). “tremendous integration of the alcohol” and “a little to much heat for me right now.”

    QOTD – It was the only fight I ever went to but it was awesome.

    Do you think he’s trapped underneath all those wristbands?

    Maybe we should send someone with a forklift to WL…

    Say it ain’t so Gary. Is that a Boston or Brooklyn “B”? I could forgive a Mets Fan with a flare for the old school, but a red sox fan, never.

    QofD: Don Zimmer Charging Pedro. He’s 100 years old taking on an Athlete in the prime of his life. Gotta live the Zim.

  • Shotgun

    QOD– Watson v. Nicklaus, Turnberry British Open Championship 1977. The first Open that I can remember seeing on TV, and still the best. Watson beat Jack by shooting 66-65 the final two rounds to Nicklaus’s 66-66, on a damned hard course, playing together for those final two rounds. I forget the 3rd place finisher, but I think he was 7 or 8 strokes back of those two. Notable also in that it inspired one of the best pieces of sports literature ever, the account written by Herbert Warren Wind for the New Yorker magazine.

    1. I think the ratings were a cop out, I mean can’t you pick a winner? Head to heads can’t end in a tie (unless, ugh soccer or hockey – but not anymore)

    2.1999 U Conn vs Duke

    The question of the day? NO QUESTION! The greatest head to head match up I can remember was Easy Goer vs. Sunday Silence for the 89 Triple Crown. It had it all. East coast vs. west coast, breeding vs. tenacity, style vs. power, and stride for stride, nose to nose, stretch run thrills. I think everyone that has ever competed in any sport can learn the meaning of “heart” watching those two horses duke it out in that series.

    Best battle: Sampras, sich as a dog, defeats Alex Corretja US Open QF 7-6, 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6

    I bought a bottle of the 03 Rutherford Pine Ridge from you. For 30 bucks, it was a polished and smooth effort, but I felt it still had too much oak…How much better are the big boys than the Rutherford?

    Sorry for the late reply from a casual lurker.

    QOTD: I just saw the NCAA 2007 hockey final–Michigan State vs. Boston College. Best hockey game I’ve seen in a long time. And since hockey is the best sport there is, that’s my vote for best head-to-head.

    Funny you should do this Pine Ridge tasting the same day I did a mini vertical of PR Rutherford ’95, ’96, and ’97. No clear winner there, either, except those of us who were drinking!
