Re: Tee to Green!

Why do people keep yelling "Get in the Hole" when it is a 600 yard par 5. Doubt they are going to get to the green in 1 Does it matter if it's a par 5? Why does anyone feel the need to yell right after a shot of any type? Or for that matter, to stand at a hockey game and yell at a player?...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

Going to our local neighborhood hardware store. I know I could probably save a few bucks by going to Lowes, Home Depot, or Menards, but the staff at our local store are so friendly, the walk you right to the item you need, and they have free popcorn to boot.

Regarding Pryor - http://noalibisnoregrets.blogspot.com/2 ... pryor.html

What I found most interesting was the final anonymous comment about Wisconsin not wanting him. The over recruitment at Wisky is out of control - hopefully it will be used against them in the future.
