About this blog

I have a lot of random things swirling around in my head from day to day, and some of them are even about things other than golf. I will use this space to ramble about anything that happens to be in that (mostly) hollow space between my ears whenever I have some time at the keyboard; golf, kids, food, the weird lady behind me at the supermarket yesterday ... whatever.

Night Time Is Supposed To Be My Time

I have come to be a big fan of sports on the other side of the globe.  Or, basically, any sporting event that I can watch live at night.  Starting at 7:30 pm is OK, but 8:30 or 9:30 is better.  At these times, I end up really enjoying events that may otherwise not be on my sporting radar.  The Australian (tennis) Open is the first that comes to mind.  Sitting on the couch, bored, and flipping stations to see if Princess Bride or My Cousin Vinny is playing on one of the stations I pay entirely to

We Love This Game! ... Right?

I've never watched the Family Guy so when this popped up on my Facebook feed the other day, it was the first I'd seen of it: I found it hilarious, partially because, well, it just is, and partially because I know some people with the same attitude as the guy there.  They claim to love the game yet appear from the outside to hate it.  They play golf whenever they can, practice when they can't play, watch the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, or Web.com Tour (and would watch the local am tour if it was tele

    • @ 2 weeks left for Stage 4 and the weight goal seems to be a miss.  I've plateaued @ 225 and see no way I can drop 10 lbs in 2 weeks.  I'll take comfort in the fact that I am not gaining even though my activity level has been low.  Also, I could "Claim" success since my initial goal was 225 but I did officially revise that down to 215 and I'm not going to backtrack just to claim success. I've yet to swing a club.  Was going to try last weekend but just did not.  I really hope to start swing
    • I will not even spend much time looking for my ball if I figure it will be unplayable. 1) no desire to get ticks, poison ivy etc. going into the woods. A player in northern Michigan got attacked by bees when he ventured into some woods, it did not end well.  Just not worth it. 2) I play 1 specific ball and if I had several random balls in my bag I would eventually forget what ball I grabbed then risk hitting a wrong ball. 3) Three words “ Pace of Play”
    • 3 weeks in and a little behind on the weight goal.  Was hoping to drop 3lbs per week but only managed to average lbs per week. the issue is I just can’t push hard enough to get the heart rate up to burn a lot of calories.  Before the surgery I was routinely burning 3400 per day while barely doing 6 miles.  Yesterday I had to do three sessions on the stationary bike had to get to 9 miles to burn the 3400 calories.   (I tell my FitBit  it is a treadmill and it is counting steps to get miles,
    • Way to go. Keep on schedule and we will all see the results some time this summer.
    • I like how Nick Faldo described this in a magazine article I think it was back in the day - fulfill your half of the bargain - he meant hit the best putt you can. It's up to the ball and the green whether it goes in or not, but you have no control over that. So fulfill your half of the bargain and you hit a good putt whether it goes in or not.
