Will Steve Elling please pick up the blue courtesy phone

The CBSSports.com writer whines about the LPGA Tour again.

The scheduling of these LPGA-sanctioned events continues to baffle one and all. Why have this event the same week as the PGA Tour's bazillion-dollar finale? With the choice between watching the Solheim or the East Lake event, most Americans will, of course, choose ... football. Hey, at least I am honest.
Steve, you're not being honest. You're being a total imbecile. When does this weekend's Solheim Cup go up against any form of football?

The Solheim's television schedule-

# Friday: 2:30 am - 1:00 pm (replay 10:00 pm - 12:30 am)
# Saturday: 2:30 am - 1:00 pm (replay 7:00 - 10:00 pm)
# Sunday: 5:00 am-11:30 am, plus Closing Ceremony (replay 8:00 - 10:00 pm)
The only time Football goes up against the Solheim is Saturday afternoon for an hour(or two. The matches are known for running late)

On Sunday the television coverage ends 90 minutes before the NFL begins playing. There is no football vs. Solheim Cup choosing to be done.

Elling has been showing signs of carrying a grudge against the LPGA ever since he wrote this column which I took to a shredder here. If he picks up the courtesy phone, I will recommend he see a good proctologist. So as to get his head out of his ass.
