And then there are the NHL playoffs… Hockey? We don’t need no stinkin’ hockey! Come on! Who in the world grew up playing hockey? O yes, the guys from Minnesota and Canada. Right. The rest of us had real sports.
Then there is the MLB. Yes, my beloved passion for baseball has all but disappeared. I’m not sure why this is. But I have two guesses. First, our sports station here in the Augusta area carries ESPN radio and the only baseball teams they actually cover are the Red Sox and the Yankees. It just so happens that there are a few more teams than those two.
Secondly, my beloved Astros are not so great this year. That and the fact that they made it to the World Series back in 2005 and lost. Given that, I figure it will take them another 40 some odd years to make it back to the World Series. That being the case, I can rest a while and not worry about keeping up with them.
I guess I could latch on to another team like the Cardinals or the… Cardinals. But I have too many friends hoping I would do just that.
But back to my search. I was actually trying to find a video of the Astros to reenergize my baseball love affair and came across this gem. It’s John Daly, the fat man of golf, out on his golf course in Branson, MO., without a shirt, without shoes, wearing a Razorback hat, driving the ball for 350 yards. That has to be an encouragement to all those fat guys who want to take up golf. Yes, we see ultimate class here in this video. The rest of the world has Tiger. Arkansas has Daly!
Take a look…
Now, consider him in his glory days below!
