A few months back a contact of mine at ESPN said he would get me tickets to the PGA Championship for the whole weekend. Well, a few months go by and he does not mention it so I do not want to bust his balls sounding like a freeloader and finally concede and commit to my wife on going up north with her family. As my luck sometimes plays out, yesterday my friend calls and tells me how his friend from the Golf Channel is going to leave my tickets at "will call" for me and they are for the entire event. DOH.......
So obviously I am now locked into campfires and hearing the same childhood stories for the 10th time with the infamous "remember when" for the weekend rather than golf and endless cold beer. I love my wife, don't get me wrong, but it made me think how many other men out there have missed something like this due to a family commitment that you know the "old lady" would banish you to "blue balls" for a month if you did not attend.
The point of all this is to help Johnny Detroit feel better about missing the PGA Championship over the weekend. What major game or sporting event did you miss due to your wife giving you the hand on the hip and titled head look and saying "you better go to my sister's house damn it and not sit home to watch Florida vs. Florida State" without actually saying the words verbally. The forum poster that makes me chuckle the most and go "man, he had it worse than me" will get a $25 Pregame Pros coupon to use. Please note, I am leaving either late tonight or early in the morning and can't take care of you until Monday.
So, who is going to start it off?
