The Boys of Fall

Dis­clo­sure: Authored by Kurt

I really enjoy this video because it puts a lot of things in prospec­tive. Nev­er­the­less the expe­ri­ences that I have had in life make you real­ize how small towns enjoy High School foot­ball. I have offi­ci­ated seven man foot­ball in West Texas for one year and had a blast. It gave me a first­hand look how a com­mu­nity comes together for one night a week dur­ing fall.

8 Vacations and it is only August 6th…

Dis­clo­sure: Authored by Kurt

I under­stand that fam­i­lies go on vacation’s and such through­out the year but I don’t feel as a tax­payer that I should pay for all these trips. First it was the New York date night and now an un-official trip to Spain in a Hotel that may cost up to $25,000 a night…
White House Press Sec­re­tary Robert Gibbs told reporters that the first lady will pay her per­sonal expenses — as will the friends who are trav­el­ing with her. But that only cov­ers a small part of the ulti­mate expense, given that she has full-time Secret Ser­vice pro­tec­tion and has to travel with an entourage of staff. That cost, as well as her travel on board an offi­cial Air Force char­ter plane, is cov­ered by taxpayers

As the Chicago Sun-Times’ Lynn Sweet reports, by the end of the sum­mer, the first lady will have taken eight vaca­tions. That includes a June trip to Los Ange­les, where she and her daugh­ters attended the NBA Finals, as well as an upcom­ing trip to the Florida Gulf Coast next week­end and a 10-day visit to Martha’s Vine­yard later this month with the president.

I hope Michelle Obama enjoys her trip to the Florida Gulf Coast next week­end and her 10 day trip to Martha Vine­yard later in August.

PGA Championship Checklist">PGA Championship Checklist

Dis­clo­sure: Authored by Kurt

As the PGA Cham­pi­onship is fast approach­ing in She­boy­gan, Wis­con­sin at Whistling Straits. I felt it was only fair to run down my check­list for the event. As many of you that lis­ten to Jim Rome, you will under­stand; as this is some­thing sim­i­lar to “USC Fan” or “Ohio State Fan” game day checklist.

No spe­cific order:
1. Print Gov­er­nor Jim Doyle’s PGA remarks from 2004 and see if his 2010 remarks are the same.
2. Check the She­boy­gan County High­way Depart­ment Web­site for updated con­struc­tion infor­ma­tion.
3. Read the Wis­con­sin State Patrol News Release from August 2nd, 2010.
4. Check the local weather at Whistling Straits via IPS MeteoStar or the National Weather Ser­vice.
5. Drive down the on ramp to I-43 at Rowe Road to expe­ri­ence a waste of $2 mil­lions if they decide to only have it open for 10 days every PGA Cham­pi­onship at Whistling Straits.
6. Read the PGA Cham­pi­onship Spec­ta­tor Guide and play close atten­tion to pro­hib­ited items… Tweeter is a no go folks!
7. Down­load the PGA Cham­pi­onship App for the IPhone and try to sneak it past secu­rity. Good Luck!
8. Take my Tiger Wood’s Jer­sey Polo Shirt out of the closet.
9. Iron my Tiger Wood’s Jer­sey Polo Shirt.
10. Put new bat­ter­ies in the dig­i­tal cam­era to take as many pic­tures as I can dur­ing the prac­tice rounds.
11. Pack for 10 days of cloth­ing, how­ever only wear 4 outfit’s the whole time.
12. Check the Wis­con­sin State Fair Web­site or Brew­ers game options against the Dia­mond­backs for Plan B.
13. Lock all the doors to my house as I make the road trip to the PGA Cham­pi­onship.
14. Flip a coin to see which friend will drive the first leg of the trip.
15. As you leave Illi­nois enter­ing the great state of Wis­con­sin, when the toll booth ladies says, “Thank you”, you reply, “No Thank you” as you pre­tend to reach for some­thing on the ground.
16. Read a list of 100 new facts about the State of Wis­con­sin in the past two years.
17. Argue that “Eau Claire,Wisconsin” is the 58th State because it was said by the leader of the free world.
18. Stop at Kopp’s Frozen Cus­tard in Mil­wau­kee for lunch and apol­o­gize for some­ones comment’s made a few months ago.
19. Dis­cuss about tak­ing the “Train to Nowhere” for the next road trip and then real­ize how much of a bad idea it is.
20. Arrive at hotel the night before the prac­tice rounds and head down­town to She­boy­gan to enjoy Michi­gan Ave.
21. Eat a famous John­sonville Brat and sug­gest to official’s to move the “Pret­zel Ben­der” to the first Mon­day of the PGA Cham­pi­onship vic the Mon­day after the 4th of July.
21. Arrive back at hotel at 0100 in the morn­ing and set the alarm for 0600 to attend the first tee off at 0700.
22. Bring a lawn chair but not the over sized chairs because they are pro­hib­ited.
23. Con­vince to out of state’er that you can milk a bull.
24. Ask official’s if the Pres­i­dent of the United States is com­ing since the Oil is capped in the Gulf. He told us he wouldn’t rest until it was.
25. Con­clude the road trip and insist that you saw Tiger Woods in the bath­room. Then tell them and all your friends, you “kicked his ass”.

While I know this list could go on and on; it had to come to a end sooner or later.
