Somebody sign this guy!

October 10, 2003

So Manute Bol wants to be a jockey. A 7-foot-7 jockey. What the hell? Manute has tried both hockey and boxing after a less than stellar career in the NBA. I don’t understand why he does these gimmicks when he could actually make a real impact in the NFL. Imagine having him play wide receiver […]

A Good Start

September 9, 2003

No Fantasy Football for me this year but I did manage to win the picks pool this week with 13/16 right. We use a weighted ranking scale where most points wins and I managed to win despite losing my 16 (Miami) and 13 (Green Bay) games. Yes, that’s right I didn’t go with the Vikings. […]

The latest ad from Tiger Woods has him surprising a number of amateur golfers by challenging them to a closest to the pin contest. It’s filmed via hidden cameras and is actually pretty well done. Check out the Tiger Trap video on buick.com. In the ads Tiger is shown surprising a number of foursomes by […]

Golf Musings

July 3, 2003

photo credit: cordeman I’m on vacation this week and have managed to get in 54 holes of golf so far – each one different than the other. That’s what I love about golf; even playing on the same course you will never have two rounds the same. Every shot is a new challenge. It’s the […]
