Drive-In Theater

Carey and I saw Cars (not Pixar's best) and Stick It (lame) tonight at a drive-in theater. Apparently, drive-ins have done away with those speaker boxes for quite awhile now, instead asking drivers to tune in to a radio frequency. Next time we'll bring a radio so that we don't just drain the car battery. […]

Michelle Wie’s Putting

If I could putt for Michelle Wie, she'd not only be playing in the U.S. Open (with 151 other men), but she'd also have won an LPGA major or two by now.

Inside the Ropes

It's soooooooo nice to watch a golf tournament from inside the ropes. Today was a long day, however: up at 5, out the door by 5:30, and just now got home. My bed awaits.

I Played Oakland Hills

I shot 83. I played five near-perfect shots (if you don't count a tap-in, which is quite difficult to do other than perfectly…) to begin the round. That course puts so much emphasis on driving the golf ball well it's not funny. This marks the second famous course I've played this year. I'm going to […]

I watched the final episode of The West Wing this morning. Though I've never actually been in this position, watching it was akin to the subtle but permanent denouement to a great relationship both parties see coming. It's nobody's fault… it's just the way things go. The feeling was mirrored in the ways in which […]

He's simply got to go. Sell the team to Mark Cuban. Sell it to someone. At this point, I almost don't care that Pittsburgh has a baseball team because, in effect, they don't.

Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated has apparently gone down the tubes lately. People on forums are calling it a "tabloid" and a "rag." The reason I've checked? Hines Ward - February's Super Bowl MVP - was quoted several times in a story about his trip to Korea as being very rude, arrogant, and egotistical. One of those quotes, […]

I just got an email from NetFlix. Seems the settlement in their class action lawsuit has been modified to be a little more user friendly. Basically, former customers got one free month and current customers got an upgraded service plan for one month. What's changed is that, before the revision, customers would automatically be kept […]

Nintendo Wiimote

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty excited about the Nintendo Wii. Dumb name, promising concept. Not only does the "remote" (or "Wiimote" as some have taken to calling it) feature mottion sensing in several directions (including tilt, etc.) but it features a rumbler and a speaker. That sounds like fun! […]

Back from New Joysey

I'm back from four days (and around 125 holes) of golf. I'll be updating this blog with some older back entries (mostly QotDs) later tonight if I get the chance.

Bethpage Black

On Friday, at 1:08pm, I'm playing a former (and likely future) U.S. Open course: Bethpage Black. I've played two rounds in Tiger Woods 2004 (it's not in 2005 and I didn't spend the money to get 2006) and scored well. It's unlikely I'll repeat such a feat "IRL". 🙂

The Masters (Phil Wins)

Bah. I did a whole lot of sitting on my ass today watching golf. The third round kicked off at 8am (or rather, continued again after a delay on Saturday). Then the final round began at 2:30 and did not finish until 7:30. Phil Mickelson, phony that he is, won his second green jacket. Tomorrow […]

2006 Steelers Schedule

The 2006 Steelers schedule is out. The Steelers start the season early, as is (recent) tradition, with what will be a tough game against the Dolphins. Then we have 11 days off. The schedule has lots of late games this year, and one thing that will suck: Dec 3 - Dec 7 shows two games. […]

Had a pool lesson today. Must work on keeping arm hanging straight down from elbow. It's partly wrist angle, partly other things. I'm looking forward to kicking Brandon and Ben's butts tomorrow night, though, I can assure you of that.

I'm watching The Smartest Guys in the Room right now in the background as I do work. Someone just said they felt as though they had no life and that they were being consumed by the company (Enron). I had a quick flash to The Matrix and how the storyline there - people feeding the […]
