This time of year is always a little bittersweet because as excited as I get that it's football season, it means I'm all but done golfing for the year.

Game day!!!

Playing in a skins game this morning too. Life is good!

Long trip

6 hrs Riyadh to France
4.5 hours lay over
8 hrs France to Boston

Wasn't profiled for the first time in 3 years! (Might have to do with me getting what they call a redress number which is basically you complaining for being signaled out for no reason)

It is 3:30 am but I am wide awake.. Body probably feels like it is 10:30 am!

Happy to be back! Can't wait to pitch the ball around the yard in the am ;)

Thanks Bill! It is good to be back, to watch the kids yesterday playing in the big yard, and picking cherry tomatoes and eating them fresh was really something!

On the bad news side, the guy that was going to do my edel putter and wedge fitting is no longer with edel.. I think now the closest edel putter fitting for me is the regional office in NY.. Really throws a tench in my plans, unless I can convince the family to take a road trip to Erie of course! ;)

We won 75-0...

We honestly were trying not to run up the score, but kept scoring on defense, and they couldn't stop our 3rd string from running power down their throat.

Ha ha! The little school I played for only had 15 players but we had a good team.

Since there weren't really any subs the coach just told us to run out of bounds if it looked like we were going to score.

Nothing was harder than running out of bounds with a wide open field in front of me. LOL

Since this is the social thread a funny story:

I was living in Macon Mo. and they had a pretty good team with a REALLY good running back. I worked the chains on the sidelines for the games.

At the end of the last home game Macon had a pretty big lead and the subs had been in for quite a while. With only about a minute left Macon took over on downs on their own 5 yard line.

The coach decided it would be a nice thing to do for the seniors if he put them all in the game for one play and let them all come off of the field together. He put them in and called a simple dive play up the middle.

Problem was that the running back went 95 yards for a touchdown and the opposing coach went absolutely ape $h!! and went running across the field yelling at Macon's coach and accusing him of running the score up while Macon's coach is trying to explain to him that he had no intention of scoring.

Our 3rd string quarterback threw a 50+ yard TD last night when we were up 50 something. It was 3rd and 25ish, and it was a roll out designed to throw a 5 yard out to the the TE. He decided to throw it to the receiver running a backside post. We were a little worried about that one, but the other coach just congratulated us and said "way to bring it".

 

When were you in Macon? When I was in high school we had about 10 or so families (a lot for the small town I grew up in) move to town from there.

I lived there and worked in the coal mine until it shut down in 1993. Since the mine drove the local economy most of us went elsewhere to find work.

I loved living in Macon and had 80 acres at the end of a dead end road with 1/2 mile of river frontage. When we left I told my wife I would never have a place that nice again...and I was right.
