The NFLs all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith sported pumpkin colored slacks on Sunday, which takes more guts than running head long into a Mike Singletary tackle.
Rush Limbaughs tendencies to lean to the right finally caught up with him. With a chance to make the amateur cut Saturday, he blew one O.B. on 18 at Pebble.
Michael Bolton makes a living with his voice, but admittedly had trouble gathering air as he played that famous final hole, so thick was the pressure. At 33 under, a net birdie wouldve earned him the title along with pro Tim Clark. Michael carded double for a net bogey while Clarke pulled his tee shot into the Pacific. Bolton quipped that hes immediately going to work on a sad song.
Word is that late Thursday after play had gone through, a couple was seen making love on the camera tower behind the 10th hole. Pebbles scenic, but that takes it to a new level. Only in California.
George Lopez had this to say on the pace of play during the celebrity shootout. In between James Woods and Samuel L. Jacksons shots I went to see Brokeback Mountain.
Donald Trumps a six handicap, prompting one pro to say that hell play the Donald at a six for the entire Monterey Peninsula, and real estates not cheap here.
Samuel L. Jacksons dream foursome: Charlie Sifford, Joe Louis and John Daly. Big cigars, big punches and big drives.
Kudos to Tiger on the opening of his learning center in Southern California. With former President Clinton and Californias first lady Maria Shriver on hand, Tiger looked very presidential in a blue pinstripe and royal blue tie.
Speaking of politics, Riviera is lobbying for the 2009 Presidents Cup.
Huey Lewis dream foursome: Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Anniston and Cindy Crawford. Big lips, bigyou know what, thats too much club, lets dial it back.
Arron Oberholser remembers coming with a friend to the 92 Open at Pebble as a kid and watching Greg Norman hit balls, thinking, I dont hit it like that. Im going to have to get better. Kids grow up. Dreams come true.
Normans knee may have to be scoped again. And what would have been a boon to the Tampa stop on the Champions Tour is now a bummer as the Shark likely will pull out. Gary McCord cracked that only the best bodies break down, while guys like Craig Stadler plod merrily along.
Young Stads can really play. As his Pop points out, when he gets a lead he can close. Dont forget he turned back local favorite Angel Cabrerra at the Argentine Open in December and has now won six times around the world.
Blizzard in the east, sun dappled oil painting at Pebble. This is why, Tiger or no Tiger, The AT&T remains a television winner.
