I Hate Golf

So I was planning some great rides last week and weekend.

Of course I forgot that it was the week(end) of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am Golf Tournament. Seriously, can we maybe trim that name down just a bit? It used to just be The Crosby. I guess that was just too easy to say. Anyway.

Forn those of you who Don't know, it is policy that it rain copiously during this particular golf tournament. Every year like clockwork. You'd think the people who put it on would have been smacked by the clue bat by now but noooo.

So I have to stay inside and stare wistfully at my beautiful bicycle and think about all those poor unused roads going to waste without my fat butt on them. All the while a bunch of golf boobs bufoon around, chasing a little white ball over drenched grass while another man holds an oh so cute floral pattern umbrella over their heads.

And I don't get my rides.

But I'm not bitter. I'm not bitter.

I hate golf.

I've tried golf. With careful tutoring of a friend, I got to be pretty good (for a beginner). Then I tried doing some stuff on my own. Without Fred there to tell me what I did wrong all the time, I kept getting wronger and wronger and have devolved into a neanderthal playing Whack-a-Mole. I gave up.

Then I rediscovered cycling. Ahhhhh, that's better.

We have a golf tournament here in town too- (The Colonial)- and it rains without fail that week as well. And in our case, that messes up Memorial Day.

We're just gonna have to be smart and start planning a vacation during those tournaments. I mean, it's getting depressing!

You may find this interesting, Eric. Apparently you and I are ahead of the trend because bicycling is the new golf.
