Hey It’s Tuesday

A really fun interview with Jason Day and Phil Mickelson on the Dan Patrick Show talking about the upcoming Presidents Cup.  He also had a really good take on the protesting that is happening during the national anthem. Posting the video below

My take on it. The President was way out of line with calling some of these players ‘SOB’s’. He’s better than that. He needs to have a filter. The flag represents different things to different people – but it doesn’t make your feelings on it – correct.

You have the right to boo. You have the right to get angry. Also, people that say “I done with the NFL.” I’m not buying it. We’ll see these people watching games in another week or two. It’s all just a social media talking point.

The key. Peaceful demonstrations. They’re peaceful. Nothing is wrong then.

Lastly…

Bring on the Morning Coffee

A great story and segment on Melissa Reid on the European LPGA tour. Give it a watch.

Dan Patrick with the UCLA Football Coach

In case you’re a little late to the party, UCLA’s quarterback Josh Rosen gave an interview to Bleacher Report discussing that student athletes don’t make enough or see enough help on campus.

A few moments later – Charles Barkey was on the third hour and had a completely different take on the events also he talks about the 25th anniversary of the Dream Team Golf medal.

Take some time and enjoy the sun. Enjoy those around you.

Hey it’s Thursday

DP on Football CTE

I think this should just be more alarming for parents. If your kid is already playing or you’re already a professional athlete – this is nothing new that is going to change your mind. Ninety-nine of one hundred that were tested were found to have CTE. That’s an extremely high rate. My take – our bodies and more specifically our skulls weren’t designed to withstand and take the combined impact speeds and trauma put on mind with the impacts of professional football. What’s the answer? I have no idea. It’s their choice and if they know the risks then let them play.

Kyrie Irving

Have you followed this going on in Cleveland? Kyrie believes that he can lead a team on his own. Kyrie believes he’s a franchise type player but can you do that when you’re in the shadow of someone like Lebron James? Give me a break. Kyrie needs to swallow his ego and do what his role is. Score some points and try and bring a (Another) championship to Cleveland.

Perhaps my favorite comment was about Stephen A Smith though….

Donald Trump bans Transgender Citizens from Serving

Did you forget that you said that Donald? You said you’d be better than Hillary Clinton on how these groups were treated. How’s that happening? My take. They fully have my support to serve. I served in an Infantry Unit with 2nd Battalion 6th Marines and I can tell you that anyone that wants to put themselves in harm’s way. I applaud them. I don’t care if they’re white, black, purple, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, gay, straight, or any other. They’re defending our values and putting their lives on the line for American citizens that they’ve never met. That’s the ultimate price.

Also on a slightly different nope. Why is the White House annoyed that a public disclosure form got released? Are you noticing the word I just used ‘PUBLIC’? Conservative Bill Kristol is spot on.

 

 

Late Friday and Early Saturday’s

Saturday morning. Off to finish the second round of the Eclectic golf tournament. First some stories that caught my interest.

SNL Producer has been responding to Donald Trump’s tweets as if they’re texts to him. I find it quite funny.

It looks solid and I’m excited to see the direction that they’re headed. We need a new direction so that we have new possibilities for future movies.

Golf Today

The round. Argh! It could have been better. My ball striking just seems a bit off. Also with my wrist feeling a bit out of whack – not painful – but something isn’t quite right. I’m hitting every shot almost 5-10 yards less than I usually am. Only near the end of the round today was I actually hitting my distances.

My buddy Doug, however, did play well.

Golf at Aviara. Birthdays of Yesterday. Ron Howard. Basketball One and Done.

Aviara

Yesterday the guys and I went off to Aviara to have a nice round of golf. Course was in excellent shape and the layout was nice. Even nicer, they had a blue-white combo tee sheet that allows for a mid-shorter to longer tee range. So that fit perfectly with the group.

After the round – a lot of guys that had a lot of fun.

My round. I was just tired from this week. Between doing some photography and golf practice, I was just beat this week. Creatively my mind was zonked.

But still – definitely a lot of fun and I highly enjoyed the course.

Today I’m 40

Well, like Dr. Fisher said last week at my physical. It’s just another number and the body doesn’t know any different.

What’s odd though. I was around for both my parents turning forty. I remember theirs. It just makes me reminisce a lot of times of yesterday.
