Just Thought of Something

The idea of marriage has its pros and cons. With John Daly that's definetly the case. Now that his wife is going off to jail for five months... he's the pro and she's the con.

Get it, pro... con he he. Alright, alright so it wasn't that funny. I told you I just thought of it.

Up on a Roof

Here's a little interesting ditty for you, at least I thought it was. In 1926 , the first outdoor min-golf courses were built on the rooftops in New York City.

Two thoughts about that:

1. When did they start calling it putt-putt. That sounds so wimpy.

2. The roofs of those buildings in NYC must have been really windy, I bet the hole that had the windmill was the number 1 handicap.

The Greatest Moral of Any Story Ever Told

In 1923, Who Was:

1. President of the largest steel company?

2. President of the largest gas company?

3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?

4. Greatest wheat speculator?

5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?

6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

These men were considered some of the worlds most successful of their day. Now, 80 years later, the history book asks us if we know what ultimately became of them.

The Answers:

1. The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper.

2. The president of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, went insane.

3. The president of the NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.

4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.

5. The president of the Bank of International Settlement, shot himself.

6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore, also committed suicide.

However, in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion and winner of a major golf tournament , the US Open, was Gene Sarazen. What became of him? He played golf until he was 92, died in 1999 at the age of 95. He was financially secure at the time of his death.

The Moral: Screw work. Play golf.

Did You See the Look on Olazabal's Face?

Man that was priceless. It was at this weekend's Buick Invitational. Olazabal has finished his round at 10 under and is over at the driving range anticipating a playoff with Nathan Green and whoever else can join them at -10. He knows Tiger is on the 18th and needs to birdie to get into the playoff. Tiger sinks a 10 footer to birdie and the crowd roars. The cameras quick cut to Olazabal and you should have seen his face. It was was like he was saying "You gotta be kidding me, now he's in the playoff - I'm screwed!" It was so obvious, he was beaten before he even started. I'm surprised he didn't just go immediately to his curtisy car and head home. Sure enough Nathan bogeys the first playoff hole and Olazabal bogeys the next one while Woods parred both. He didn't even have to birdie to win.

I thought these guys were over this intimidation thing with Tiger? I guess not.
