Avoid This Christmas Mistake With Your Spouse

Lucas and I were in the mall today at a retail golf store. We were practicing our putting and lo and behold, we saw several men and women browsing around the store with confused looks on their faces. At 2 years old, Lucas didn’t take much notice, but I knew the look. I have seen it before. It’s the “Oh crap, my husband/wife asked for the 9.5 degree, Nasa plutonium shafted, jimmy-doo-hicky, high launch driver from, oh what was it, Taylorland, or was it Clevemade?” look.

Husbands and wives, please, do me a favor. Do not ask for golf equipment for Christmas! That is not until you have been properly fitted and can write down in vast detail the exact make and model of the latest doo-hicky driver that you want. Because if you just say get me the “9.5 degree, Nasa plutonium shafted, jimmy-doo-hicky, high launch driver from TaylorMade”, you will be lucky to get it and when you do get it, the thing will work just as poorly and slice the ball just as far as your original jimmy-doo-hicky driver. Get Fitted!

Why Jim Furyk is Way Cooler Than Allen Iverson

Many of you reading this have probably never even heard of Jim Furyk. He is a relatively obscure PGA Touring Professional with a caddy that is generally considered more famous than he. However Jim is one of the most successful PGA Tour Players of all time. This past year he ranked #4 in the Fed Ex Cup Standings and he is currently ranked #10 in the world rankings and #4 in all time PGA Tour Earnings at over $40Million.

So why is he Way Cooler than Allen Iverson?

Because Jim Furyk is currently not eligible for next years Ryder Cup, yet he is not complaining to the world that we should “Go look at his resume” to see that he should be on the Ryder Cup Team. Unlike the cry baby Allen Iverson, Jim knows his place in the world and he knows that you are only as good as your last shot. Even though he is ranked 4th in career earnings he knows that he will have to go out and prove himself again next year or he will not make the Ryder Cup team.

Now back to why Allen Iverson is not nearly as cool as Jim Furyk.

As many of you know Allen Iverson was a disaster with the Detroit Pistons and he moved south to the Memphis Grizzlies to destroy yet another team. And guess what…

The sweat had barely dried off his braids following his first game in a Grizzlies uniform last night, and Iverson was already mad about the amount of playing time he received in the overtime loss to the Kings.

After missing the first three games while recovering from a partial right hamstring tear, Iverson played only briefly as a reserve, scoring 11 points in less than 18 minutes (and 1 assist vs. 2 turnovers and ZERO rebounds, way to hussle). He said he had no problems with his hamstring, but had a big problem with the playing time he got from coach Lionel Hollins.

“Go look at my resume and that will show you that I’m not a sixth man,”

No Allen, it has everything to do with you being a selfish pig. You are old and washed up. It would be better for the Memphis Grizzlies and the whole league if you would just retire and go play golf. Just don’t come to my golf course. We have a No Pissing and Moaning rule.

Iverson said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with me being selfish. It’s just who I am. I don’t want to change what gave me all the success that I’ve had since I’ve been in this league.”
