I was thinking today while tending the BBQ, of a few things that are pretty much a given, but still need to have attention brought to them, but on different levels of thought. I think way too much, especially when i'm alone...

They are, in no specific order.

1) Is the thought of me playing blades next summer inevitable?

2) Is there anyone out there, beside Tiger ("I'm almost there"), that begs to differ on Vijay being #1 in the world now? I mean, cripes, 5 outta the last 6 and 3 in a row.

3) How come BBQ's always have "hot spots" even when they're new?

4) How come it wasn't this nice during the summer?

5) Why did I buy a black car, thinking it would be easier to keep clean than a white one? :sobbash:

6) Is there anything better to drink on a nice day, hovering over the BBQ, than a nice cold beer?

7) Will I be a club ho next season? Will this be my break out year to keep all my equipment for at least 365 days as one single working unit?

8) What will golf technology bring us next?

9) Were there any 'trilogies' better than Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Back to the Future? (i'd give a vote for a fourth with the Die Hards, but the second one pretty much sucked.)

10) Will my putter ever get back to it's glory days? (Ya, i've played maybe 10 rounds with it.... ;) )

11) Weather Guru's are picking this year to be like the winter of '97, where I played golf on X-mas day. It was about 20*F here, but i went out anyways, just to say i did. Can I beleive them this year?

12) Why do black golf hats sunbleach brown? They can land a guy on the moon, but they can't figure this out? ;)

13) Is it considered cool to have blades for PW-7 and cavities for 6-3 iron?

14) Gotta bring up Vijay again. He hits it 15 feet from the cup and he's ticked. Is anyone super jealous they don't have his "B" or even his "C" game? :p

15) Are these shrimp done?

16) Is my switch to HX Blue permanent? (Ya right....)

17) Is anyone else craving a croissant right now?

18) Why did I get a subscription to Golf Magazine? It gets to my house 2 weeks after the tournament special it is focusing on is over! CRIPES!

19) Should I read my golf journal that I've kept for the last 6 months, and see how terribly I progressed? How many goals was I short of making? (I had 10 of them)

20) Is anyone else craving the range?

1) Is the thought of me playing blades next summer inevitable?

As night follows day

2) Is there anyone out there, beside Tiger ("I'm almost there"), that begs to differ on Vijay being #1 in the world now? I mean, cripes, 5 outta the last 6 and 3 in a row.

Earl?

3) How come BBQ's always have "hot spots" even when they're new?

Don't ask, just enjoy.

4) How come it wasn't this nice during the summer?

You are experiencing the reverse of the El Nino effect, known as Le Nino (true story)

5) Why did I buy a black car, thinking it would be easier to keep clean than a white one? :sobbash:

Because black is classy and elegant

6) Is there anything better to drink on a nice day, hovering over the BBQ, than a nice cold beer?

Nope.

7) Will I be a club ho next season? Will this be my break out year to keep all my equipment for at least 365 days as one single working unit?

You'll be a club ho with new blades!

8) What will golf technology bring us next?

Low-lofted Hybrid clubs to replace drivers

9) Were there any 'trilogies' better than Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Back to the Future? (i'd give a vote for a fourth with the Die Hards, but the second one pretty much sucked.)

The Godfather & The Matrix

10) Will my putter ever get back to it's glory days? (Ya, i've played maybe 10 rounds with it.... ;) )

sure why not.

11) Weather Guru's are picking this year to be like the winter of '97, where I played golf on X-mas day. It was about 20*F here, but i went out anyways, just to say i did. Can I beleive them this year?

sure why not.

12) Why do black golf hats sunbleach brown? They can land a guy on the moon, but they can't figure this out? ;)

So that's why you bought a black car...

13) Is it considered cool to have blades for PW-7 and cavities for 6-3 iron?

sure why not.

14) Gotta bring up Vijay again. He hits it 15 feet from the cup and he's ticked. Is anyone super jealous they don't have his "B" or even his "C" game? :p

yep.

15) Are these shrimp done?

No - turn them over one more time.

16) Is my switch to HX Blue permanent? (Ya right....)

Only until they stop making them! (F#$@ing Maxfli A3!)

17) Is anyone else craving a croissant right now?

Yeah, it's close to lunchtime here

18) Why did I get a subscription to Golf Magazine? It gets to my house 2 weeks after the tournament special it is focusing on is over! CRIPES!

Gotta read something.

19) Should I read my golf journal that I've kept for the last 6 months, and see how terribly I progressed? How many goals was I short of making? (I had 10 of them)

Sell it on ebay - it will be worth something to someone

20) Is anyone else craving the range?

For a single unit, you need the universal club with adjustable lie angle.

1) Is the thought of me playing blades next summer inevitable?

Seems to be. I don't know about you, but when I get headed in one direction on something like new clubs it's tough to slow me down. I still like the new Mizunos though.

2) Is there anyone out there, beside Tiger ("I'm almost there"), that begs to differ on Vijay being #1 in the world now? I mean, cripes, 5 outta the last 6 and 3 in a row.

He's been #1 for a while. It just took the computer some time to catch up with reality.

3) How come BBQ's always have "hot spots" even when they're new?

This can be a good thing. My wife likes medium & I like medium rare.

4) How come it wasn't this nice during the summer?

When does summer end?

5) Why did I buy a black car, thinking it would be easier to keep clean than a white one?

Why did you buy a black car???? Why did I buy one? In TEXAS??? What a dumba$$!!!!

6) Is there anything better to drink on a nice day, hovering over the BBQ, than a nice cold beer?

I love some of the imports but Texas has two of the best beers anywhere if you like bocks. Shiner Bock and Zigen Bock. If you can get them there on the north pole give them a try.

7) Will I be a club ho next season? Will this be my break out year to keep all my equipment for at least 365 days as one single working unit?

Once a ho, always a ho.

8) What will golf technology bring us next?

www.smartswinggolf.com This is a real golf club with computer equip. in the shaft that provides feedback about your swing. If you intend to be a real ho then this too is inevitable.

10) Will my putter ever get back to it's glory days? (Ya, i've played maybe 10 rounds with it.... ;) )

Yes.

11) Weather Guru's are picking this year to be like the winter of '97, where I played golf on X-mas day. It was about 20*F here, but i went out anyways, just to say i did. Can I beleive them this year?

We play at Christmas too. Only it's usually in the 60s or 70s.

12) Why do black golf hats sunbleach brown? They can land a guy on the moon, but they can't figure this out? ;)

The car was a big enough mistake, I'm not about to wear a black hat here.

13) Is it considered cool to have blades for PW-7 and cavities for 6-3 iron?

If I'm not mistaken, it's considered cool to break to par. A guy can dream right?

14) Gotta bring up Vijay again. He hits it 15 feet from the cup and he's ticked. Is anyone super jealous they don't have his "B" or even his "C" game? :p

I'll take his D game.

15) Are these shrimp done?

Are they pink yet?

16) Is my switch to HX Blue permanent? (Ya right....)

Yes, until you switch.

18) Why did I get a subscription to Golf Magazine? It gets to my house 2 weeks after the tournament special it is focusing on is over! CRIPES!

www.golfonline.com Buts it's hard to read in the crapper.

19) Should I read my golf journal that I've kept for the last 6 months, and see how terribly I progressed? How many goals was I short of making? (I had 10 of them)

Post it here. No one will make fun I promise. :D

20) Is anyone else craving the range?

always

Grazo, the effect is La Nina. That's the opposite of El Nino. Close tho. ;)

Gun, good call on Beverly Hills Cop, although the third one was pretty terrible. I was going to include the Aliens Quadrilogy, but the last two made me want to vomit.

Dave, the shrimp were pink. Thanks for the heads up. And thanks for having faith in my putter. I'll send to to you when it dies. :D

Loop. Where do you come up with this crap! Gold!....lol.
