Yup, those are my bowling scores from my first four games in over 15 years. I used to carry a 170 average. Even took a few bowling…aka screw off classes in college. I have myself into two different leagues for the summer. Since I am off every summer, I figured I would throw in some bowling to go along with the golf and weight lifting. If you take a gander, two out of my three activities are beer user-friendly:)
Over the next few weeks, I am going to see if I can’t re-capture the old form. I figure if George Foreman could do it, why not me? Thing is, I doubt if I am going to make millions off of this deal. I guess my reward is fun and memories, and that is much more important than money.

Yup, that’s right. The flu bug may have won a battle, but I just one the war! In other words, I was able to shoot a decent nine holes of golf yesterday during my team’s match. I have said this before, that coaching high school golf is the greatest gig a coach can have, because we play the same nine as do the teams! No other high school sport allows this. Thank goodness! Most of my buddies who coach other sports, like football, and wrestling, would smash the best of their players. I am sure the school’s insurance company would not be very happy about this. As of now, I am still able to beat the best of my players. This is what makes golf so great, it ain’t the age of the player, but the amount of time, and effort, that the player has under their belt. A ten years old kid, who has been playing for five years, can beat a 40-year-old who has been playing for two years. In other words, grand children can compete with their gramps! Gramps could also beat his kid. Not very many sports allow the entire family to play for a life time. And no, checkers is not a sport!

While on the golf course yesterday, I had a pretty good conversation with my co-worker/friend about how Bubba Watson has not come under media fire for his strong Christian beliefs. Yup, Bubba gave thanks to God for allowing him to have the skills to win the 2012 Masters golf tourney. Bubba has always credit to God for all of his blessings, and not a peep from the godless group in the media, or the fans of the sport. Yet, Tebow is attacked by those who don’t believe. Tim has lived his faith, like Bubba. Tim has never attacked any person or group, like Bubba. Yet, he is demonized by many in the media and other thick-headed, human atheist turds.
Most Christians understand that non-believers dislike the Christian faith because it exposes their deviant life styles. What they don’t understand, is that we all have sin in our nature, but God gives us a chance at redemption. Something the godless community does not give a rip about.
Anyway, back to Tebow and Bubba. Tebow plays a sport that needs its bad boy image. Forget about the fact that each team has players that are part of a prayer group, and who gather with their opponents after each game to give thanks to God for all their blessings. With golf, the bad boy image is not tolerated, nor is it promoted. Many in the media consider the vast majority of golfers as products of the rich and spoiled. Again, a false image of the vast majority of PGA, and Nationwide Tour players. Honesty, integrity, and being a good person is required to be on these tours. Something that is not always required in the NFL.
Bottom line, there a hundreds of guys like Tebow in the NFL. Always have been and always will be. Thing is, they don’t fit the disrespectful, in your face, this is my house, who cares about your criminal life style image that is the NFL. Bubba, does fit the image of the PGA.
And now for the rest of the news!

I have written about this before. I love coaching high school golf and it is not because of all the usual reasons: Free rounds,free equipment, leaving work early, not going to work all day. Nope, it is seeing the look of a young student’s face when he shaves 20 strokes off of his score in less than one month.
Most of my guys come to me as freshmen or sophomores never having picked a club up. Heck, any more, never having played a sport at any level, thanks technology! So it happened today. The kid was ecstatic. He had a bounce in his step, and he was talkin’ golf.
Well, bottom line is that this kid has a hobby that will stay with him for a life time. He has memories he will never forget, and a gift he may some day pass on to his kids. Yup, this is why I do it.

There is no denying that Tiger woods is one of the best golfers of all time, though only on the course. Outside of the ropes, he has always been less than average. His entire, fabricated, family man facade was blown up with wife’s 9 iron, a wrecked truck, all of the porn gals popping up.
He has attempted to repair his image, but the real Tiger has not changed his stripes. It is too bad, he will never attain his goal of being the greatest golfer ever, because a person must have the same qualities off the course, as they do on it: Honest,polite, and respectful. Something Tiger is not. Here is his recent interview with Alex Miceli. Shows you all that you needed to know about the Paper Tiger.
The news conference at PGA National turned awkward when Alex Miceli, a Golfweek senior writer and contributor to Golf Channel, asked Woods if he considered being a Navy SEAL at the height of his career.
“I’ve already talked about everything in the book. I’ve already commented on everything, Alex,” Woods said.
“Then I must have missed you answering that question,” Miceli replied.
“Well, I’ve already commented on the book. Is that in the book? Is it in the book?” Woods said.
Miceli replied he had not seen the book.
“You’re a beauty, you know that?” Woods said, forcing a smile.
Miceli said Steinberg’s statement suggested something was wrong with the excerpt and he wanted to know if it was true. Woods paused for a moment, said with indifference, “I don’t know,” then stared at him for nearly five seconds and said, “Have a good day.”

Yes, normally three-day weekends rock, but when the third day is forced due to a seemingly minor malady, it takes most of the fun out of it.
Sunday was a really good day: two playoff football games too watch. I am not a big fan of the Patriots, seeing my team is the Dolphins, but the Raven stink, because of one player: Ray Lewis. He is one of the most marketed player for the NFL, but he his not a good guy. Some years back he, and a few of his buddies piled in to a limo, along with a couple other dudes, but when the doors re-opened, only Ray-Ray and his crew climbed out, leaving two men stabbed to death behind. For some unknown reason, nobody in Ray’s crew saw anything, along with Ray. I guess you just can’t get a natural-born street punk to ever change. To this day, nobody has answered for these murders.
Then the 49′ers lost in a really great game. Again, SF beat my Dolphins back in the day so I am no friend of the Red and Gold.
I also watched what used to be the Bob Hope Desert Classic, but now it is the Humana Tourney. It is a new format, and sadly, Bubba Clinton and his world health police have their claws in it. These big domestic,world government guys try to hoodwink people into believing they give a darn about your health, when it is nothing more than a control, and money issue. Bubba is says as much, but too many typical libs, and ignorant RHINO types don’t get it.
So, after all this fun, I wake up in the middle of the night and a swear I ate a sack of Ready Mix concrete! Yup, that keep me up most of the night, and well into the morning. It was either gravity, or my tapeworm working overtime, but the issue finally resolved itself:) I could hear the birds chirp, see butterflies dance; life is good, once more.

For all the perks my job allows me, this is one that chaps my hide a bit! Anytime there is a home sports event, it has to be worked. No don’t get me wrong, I get compensated at time and a half, and i am now at the point that I can once again take the coin, instead of the time. Seeing that I must accrue comp time in order to coach my golf team in the spring. And for those of you who know me, golf is a major reason I am still on this job.
So I guess I just reminded myself that working a few hours over the Christmas break is well worth it. What would I be doing anyway? Playing golf and or drinking beer. I still have five days left to get my fill in. Seeing that the return from Christmas break always is the kick off for me to hit the weights, and tread mill even more than normal. I gotta continue to look smooth while on the golf course, even though it is a bit hard to see me when I am in the trees, or the sand trap.
