It is an unfailing truth that kids will focus in on one toy from Christmas and that it will generally be one of the cheapest of the bunch. It makes me wonder why I don’t just do the dollar store for everything.
I did not tell my kids what I wanted for Christmas this year, so they were left to truly think on their own. I got a variety of Dodger paraphernalia, four ties and two shirts. They know me well: fun and practical.
I understand the appeal of a white Christmas, but you just can’t beat sunny and 70 degrees.
Speaking of sunny December weather, President Obama played his 90th round of golf as President this week. Not only is that nearly double what Bush played in eight years, it is more rounds than I’ve played in my lifetime. (Which is more a commentary on me than Obama.)
Apparently the NBA season is now underway.
I always enjoy the year-end specials about the top stories of the year, the year in pictures, best sports moments of the year and the like. There were some interesting things that happened, but I’m guessing most people will be glad to see 2011 end.
I really feel for people who have a birthday on or near Christmas. Speaking of which, Happy Birthday Nicole!
What does it say about me that I think of PF Changs as comfort food?
The world of golf was put back on its regular axis with Phil Mickelson’s triumph at the Masters. The world watched as Tiger Woods returned to golf following months out of the game as he has weathered scandal.
I’m sure many people were rooting for Tiger to win it all in his comeback debut. But I had a feeling of relief when the hard-working every-guy Mickelson sunk his birdie on the 18th green to seal his third Masters win.
I actually feel like golf will return to some normalcy now. And we’ll all be better for it.
Most people will expect me to be very critical of Obama for golfing more in 9 months than George Bush did in more than 2 years. I’m not. Bush had a ranch to go to in order to get some down time – Obama has the streets of Chicago. I’d go golfing too.
So Bush was vilified by the left every time he went golfing. Will the same happen to The One?
This from the Politico blog which is covering the moment-by-moment movements of Obama:
Obama is back in Phoenix, sooner than expected, and while no explanation has been offered to the press, rumors of a golf game have been circulating.
