Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Jerry Reinsdorf presented by Cadillac premiering Wednesday, March 14 at 7:00 PM on Comcast SportsNet:

REINSDORF on the White Sox winning the 2005 World Series:

"In the spring of 2005, I said this is going to be my 25th year, maybe we're never going to win a World Series. I don't know if it will ever happen. And then it happened. I am still appreciating the moment. The moment wasn't when we won...I mean that was exciting, you know my God we won the World Series...although it wasn't a shock because we were up three games to nothing. What really happened to make it sink in was the parade. There were two million people, there wasn't one arrest, there wasn't one incident. You could see the love coming to the players from those people. Then there were people coming up to me telling me they had gone to the cemetery and decorated their parents or grandparents graves. You could go to any cemetery in Chicago and the graves were decorated with White Sox paraphernalia. And then the next spring a gentleman came up to me in the parking lot and said my father died 15 minutes after the last out, he knew and he died happy. Those things will never, ever leave me.

REINSDORF on his luck buying the Bulls:

"There's been luck at everything I've ever done. (White Sox Executive Vice President) Howard Pizer and I have a little joke between us when we have a problem and can't figure out the solution to the problem. I'll say to Howard, what are we going to do? And Howard's answer will be, well, we'll get lucky, because everything I've ever done, I've had a tremendous amount of good luck. A little bad luck along the way, but the good luck so outweighs it. In that case, the good luck was they had drafted Michael Jordan. At the time we made the deal, no one knew what Michael Jordan was going to be, and I don't think they would have sold the team if they had known what he was going to be. So clearly, I was lucky."

REINSDORF on winning six NBA titles with the Bulls:

I was incredibly proud to be associated with the Chicago Bulls and what they had done. The Bulls are a worldwide phenomenonled by Michael (Jordan), but it was a great team. You have to give Jerry Krause a lot of credit because the only two players who were on the second 3-peat that were on the first 3-peat were Michael and Scottie (Pippen).

What Jerry said was Organizations win championships and it is true. Now, players are part of the organization. At the end of the day, the players have to win the game. But how did they get there? Who put them together? They didn't just drop out of the sky. They have to be coached...they have to have physical training. It really takes a whole organization, but a great organization has to have great players.

REINSDORF on winning the NBA Draft Lottery in 2008 (despite having just a 1.7 chance), which allowed the Bulls to draft reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose:

Two months before (the NBA Draft Lottery), John Paxson and I were talking and Paxson said, 'Where are we going to get a point guard? We've got to get a point guard. I said, 'I don't know, we'll win the lottery, we'll take Derrick Rose. I knew he was going to be a very good player. I can't say I expected him to be an MVP in his third year. What's really good is that he's grounded. He really hasn't changed since he got here. He comes from a solid background. He was protected when he was growing up. He is a lot like Michael in that he just wants to win basketball games.

Dustin Johnson, Kevin Chappell tied for lead at Tour Championship

Dustin Johnson, Kevin Chappell tied for lead at Tour Championship

ATLANTA (AP) — Dustin Johnson had a reasonable lie in the rough and only a few pine tree branches blocking his path to the 17th green. Neither seemed like a problem until he played the wrong shot, clipped the tree and wound up with a double bogey Saturday in the Tour Championship.

It was an example of how one hole can change everything at East Lake.

And it's why the final round of the PGA Tour season suddenly has more scenarios than Johnson cares to consider.

Johnson recovered with a birdie from the bunker on the par-5 18th for a 1-under 69, giving him a share of the lead with Kevin Chappell (68) going into the last round that will determine who wins the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup.

For the first time since 2009, there's a chance it might not be the same player.

"There's a lot of scenarios that could happen," Johnson said. "But yeah, I'm still going to go out and try to shoot as low a score as possible."

Johnson only has to win or finish second alone to claim the $10 million bonus as the FedEx Cup champion.

Rory McIlroy, who has gone 28 holes without a bogey at East Lake, had three birdies over his last six holes for a 66 and was two shots behind. If he were to win the Tour Championship and Johnson finished in a two-way tie for second or worse, McIlroy would claim the FedEx Cup.

"It would just be great to try to win the Tour Championship, and if the chips fall my way, then so be it," McIlroy said.

The winner of the Tour Championship has won the FedEx Cup every year since 2009, when Phil Mickelson won the tournament and Tiger Woods won the FedEx Cup.

Johnson led by as many as four shots when he ran off three straight birdies on the front nine, and he really didn't do much wrong to give up the size of that lead. He had a three-putt from 70 feet on No. 13, and missed the fairway by a few feet on the next hole, enough that his ball was buried so deep that even Johnson and his power couldn't advance more than about 135 yards.

It was the 17th hole that reshaped the tournament.

Johnson tried to played a fade from a flyer lie in the rough, and the ball came out high and hit a branch, leaving him in more rough about 60 yards short of the green. He put that in the bunker, blasted out to 6 feet and missed the putt to make double bogey.

Chappell rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt for a three-shot swing on the hole and suddenly had the lead, only for Johnson to catch him with the final birdie.

They were at 8-under 202.

Chappell, a runner-up three times this season who has never won on the PGA Tour, has made only one bogey in 54 holes this week, a show of consistency, discipline and a few good breaks when he does miss the fairway.

His next chance at a breakthrough victory is to face golf's best player at the moment (Johnson), with McIlroy and Ryan Moore (66) two shots behind.

"I've always kind of been the underdog, so it's a role I'm comfortable in," Chappell said.

Moore went out in 31 until he was slowed by a pair of bogeys, though very much in the mix just two shots out of the lead. The mystery is whether anything he does on Sunday - even if that means a victory - is enough for Davis Love III to use his last captain's pick on Moore for the Ryder Cup.

"I came here this week to win a golf tournament, and I'm 100 percent focused on that," Moore said, adding that the Ryder Cup is "completely out of my control."

And that's how the last day is shaping up for everyone - post a score and see where it leads.

Johnson, for a moment, looked as though he might take all the drama out of the season-ender when he made a 15-foot par putt early in his round and then ran off three straight birdies on the front nine to go four shots clear.

The putter cooled off, however, and Chappell stayed in range.

Chappell chipped in on No. 12 to match birdies and stay three shots behind, and then he quickly closed the gap when Johnson made back-to-back bogeys, only to respond with a 4-iron over the water to a peninsula green on the par-3 15th to 15 feet for birdie.

The 17th hole changed everything.

"I thought about just trying to hit it in the front bunker, which I probably should have done - probably would have made 4 if I'd have done that," Johnson said. "But it is what it is. I came back and birdied the last hole, tied for the lead going into tomorrow. I like my position."

And he doesn't need a degree in math to figure out the easiest scenario - just win.
