Never really thought they went together. Since beginning to play golf I can't say how many different football players we've met and played with at assorted charity events.
Now having never swung a club in my life before last March, it should go without saying that I have gotten quite a bit better. Let's be honest, it would have been damn near impossible to get any worse.
Most of the charity golf events support some sort of program for wounded vets along with others. A good friend of mine, who had alot to do with me picking up the game of golf, started his own golf tournament. Most of the time when we play we augment a team and the format is best ball/scramble. We don't often get a chance to go head-to-head. Ramon's tournament was a bit of both, since it was mostly wounded warriors it would have taken forever for us to play our own ball through it all, so it was a scramble on all holes except for par 3's. On those we played our own ball and tracked the scores. I ended up taking second in the tournament! Who would have thought! Along with the stuff, I won a pair of Suite/Box seats to this weekends Redskins-Buc's game. It should be a good time, and a football filled weekend. As it stands now, Danny and I are supposed to be going to the Navy-Air Force game in Annapolis with some friends.
We'll have to rush a bit on Sunday, as we have some of the folks from USARAK coming down to visit some of the wounded guys.
The only down side; between all of the golf, football, and hospital stuff I haven't had much of a chance to be out chasing whitetail this last week. I will hopefully remedy that with my upcoming trip to OK with another wounded buddy from Alaska.
Well, I need to finish up helping the boy with his homework and get him off to bed. Hopefully everyone is well.
Talk to ya later, Josh
