Why Does Bad Sell So Good?

I have grown tired of seeing articles and television programming that focuses on the bad behaviors of people. Lets start with an obvious example: Aaron Hernandez NFL player, thug and murderer. His face and story is everywhere right now. Tim Tebow NFL player, same team as Hernandez, graduated from the same college, all around good guy, and Chritian…nothing but crickets! Unless somebody is knocking him for being too good of a guy.

I know this is nothing new, but my gosh, how many people follow this crap daily, but they don’t give a crap about our crumbling nation? IRS scandle…so what? Forced health care….so what? OK, you know where I am going with this.

Back to my happy place. I am looking forward to my golf season starting in February. Sounds like a long ways off, but it is not. The work year passes in a blink of an eye, as does my summer vacations. Some folks say this is a sign of old age, but I think it is more of a sign of realizing life ain’t all that bad when you focus on the good.

My Point Of View

These are some pics Roddy Ranch in Antioch CA.

The Count Down Begins

No, I ain’t talking about Christmas or retirement. I am talking the upcoming golf season. The coaching gig never gets old. Like I have always said, the game of golf is unique. It does not matter if you’re a scratch player or a 25 handicap, it is all about having fun and passing something on to the next generation of golfers. I always give credit to two guys who got me where I am today: Coach Hollister who took me to a par-3 course when I was in the 8th grade, and my dad who told me to play on my high school team, because “you will get to play for free.” And he bought me my first set of clubs.

Holy crap, 35 years later I am getting paid to do what I would gladly do for free! I am playing some of the nicest courses in the area..for free. And I am passing on the best parts of the game to young fellows who will be sharing the same info long after I check out of this life. This is payment a plenty for me.
