Knocking Your Balls In The Water

by

This week is the beginning of golf season.  Well, for me it is.  It really started a few weeks ago in Hawaii at one of those tournaments nobody watches.

But this week, sports fans, is the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.  Formerly known as The Crosby Clambake.  Clint Eastwood is currently one of the owners of Pebble Beach Resort.  So if the sign says "Soft Spikes Only" you better believe it, punk.

In the trophy vault of stately Sarcastro Manor, I have a commemorative Jim Beam decanter from one of the early seventies editions of the Crosby.  I keep it near the giant penny and robot dinosaur.

Bill Murray and other folks from the world of entertainment help keep this from being "just another boring golf tournament." 

The scenery is the real attraction.  Notice how the CBS cameras will linger on the otters, sunsets, ocean, sailboats, whales and whatever else distracts the viewer from remembering that they are watching golf on television.  It truly is one of the most stunningly beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

    If they could just quit inviting Kenny G and Michael Bolton . . .

    I’m not sure I want to live in a world where Justin Timberlake and Kenny G are better golfers than me.

    I commented to my girlfriend, who was only watching because Tom Brady was playing, at least they are working on their golf games and not making records.
