LA Lights up the Batsignal, Scramble, US Open, Tommy and Oxford

It’s Saturday morning. Good morning everyone. We’re off to the races.

I’d be amiss if I didn’t mention the tribute that Los Angeles paid to the original Batman. The one that I grew up watching on the tv screen in re-runs. A little odd that I thought they were always live. RIP Adam. To the Batcave Robin….

Pete and Gary Scramble

My buddies Pete and Gary are off to be part of Sycuan’s two man scramble for seniors. By seniors – you have to be fifty or older. I’m a bit over ten years out so I won’t be taking part in that. Guys – play well. Try to limit yourself to just one bogey and you guys will be solid.

US Open

Damn this course is making it look easy at times for the boys. I thought this was supposed to be the most challenging course in the US and weren’t they also the same body that decided to cut down some of the rough because it was too penalizing. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the scoreboard.

Some of the best shots from round 2:

Tommy and England

Keble_College_Chapel_-_Oct_2006

My step-son Tommy had signed up to go to this study abroad for a month thing at Oxford about six months ago. Then the ‘looney’ events happened in England and SDSU sent out this email saying that they were monitoring the situation but not cancelling the event. For whatever reason, Tommy got freaked out and no longer wants to attend. Originally, I had thought there was a small fear factor. But as I was crunching the numbers. Large amount of people – small amount of people effected. Give me numbers.

The largest amount of people were effected in the 80s.

Terror is killing far fewer people in the UK now than it was in the 1980s

I just have this feeling that he’s missing out and missing out on a good opportunity. What’s worse is when you ask him about why he no longer wants to go. You get vague answers and not very thought out responses. But at the end of the day, it’s definitely his decision and he has to live with it.

Lastly….

Anyone heard John Butler Trio play guitar. This guy can just flat out play…..

Club Championship, Puppies, RIP Adam West

Good morning. It’s Sunday morning.

Club Championship

Always a lot of fun. A lot of people complained of the greens. It is what it is and it’s that way for everybody. So I didn’t think of it much. I only had one putt all day that was a good putt that would have gone in but hit a bump and skidded off-line. So really nothing to complain about.

I think what I was most impressed with. I got up and down 57% of the time. It certainly can be better but two of those up and downs were out of bunkers.

I had a slight bicep strain at the gym on Friday and I thought that it would just go-away with some time. But I’ve felt it all during yesterday’s round. So I’ve decided to take things easy and not compete today.

My buddy Gary – who played in the Championship flight with me – had a day he’d like to soon forget. Shooting a 90. He definitely looked frustrated.

Adam West RIP

The first Batman that I’ve seen from the television show has passed away. His television portrayal was definitely one of the keys to help get me into comics.

Some friends of ours lost their Doberman dog. Horrible that they had to go through that. I guess they’re ready for a new puppy. I was stating my opinion last night that puppies are a lot of work. Exercise, obedience training, potty training, etc. I got accused of lecturing her when I was stating the ‘said work’ involved. Oh well. Life is full of choices.

Paul Azinger talks Tiger Woods

“TIGER’S CLOSE TO A FEW PEOPLE. NOT MANY. AND THE FEW PEOPLE THAT ARE AROUND TIGER PROBABLY KNOW THERE’S A PROBLEM. AND IF THEY DON’T INTERVENE, THEN IT’S ON THEM. BUT ADDICTION’S A BIG DEAL, AND IF HE’S ADDICTED, THEN SOMEBODY BETTER INTERVENE.”
