Spent the day driving mother-dearest from my house where she's been recovering (from hip-replacement surgery, of all things) down to her place on Hilton Head. Long road trip from one end of South Carolina to the other...
By arrangement, I was gonna call the LBS for regular Tour updates from the car. Tried several times. No signal twice, then straight to the LBS's owners mobile voicemail the third time.... <insert cursing>
As we're finally getting to HHI, I find ESPN Radio on AM. It's about 11:00 am? Between commercials, every conceivable sports story (and non-story, for that matter) gets yakked about. Lots of detail about the upcoming college football season. Even high school football prospects. And will Barry Bonds play today? Will Felipe Alou restore harmony to the San Francisco Giants clubhouse? Which clubs will Tiger use that day?
Tour? What Tour? Not a peep..
<insert much cursing>
When we get to Mummy's house (no internet, no OLN), I start flipping between CNN, Headline News, ESPN, ESPN2, etc. hoping to see or hear something. Nope. Not even a mention on the tickers scrolling across the bottom of the screen.... <insert much more cursing>
Point: Somebody owes me......
