Wake N’ Blog For August 17th: The Tiny Polish Village Of Rumin Must Have A Problem Only A Used-Up, Overrated Skank Can Fix

wake-n-blogPGA Championship. 37-year-old Y.E. Yang, who didn’t begin playing golf in his native South Korea until he was 19, won the PGA Championship (-8) at Hazeltine National, beating Tiger Woods by three strokes. A combination of Yang’s chip in eagle at No. 14, birdie at No. 18 and Tiger’s terrible putting sealed the deal. This is the first time Woods has lost a major after heading into the final round with the lead – he was 14-0 in those situation heading into Sunday. []

Sorry, residents of Rumin, Madonna will only visit your town if you have children she can exploit by adopting. Mariusz Ciszak, the brains behind Rumin’s goal to bring Madonna to their tiny city 143 miles east of Warsaw, believes Madonna should visit the town because “Rumin is like Madonna, Rumin is top. Rumin is trendy, Rumin is fashion. That’s the general idea and we want to underline that Rumin is very similar to Madonna. And we want Madonna to join Rumin by accepting honorary citizenship.” I see. To sweeten the deal, citizens have offered to name a street after the ghoulish pop star if she makes an appearance, which makes sense, since a road in a small Polish town is probably as uncomfortable to ride as Madonna.
