Smoking and Golf go together

like a horse and carriage. Quitting smoking really does suck. Headaches, inability to sleep, always on edge, depression, list goes on and on. Playing a very, very slow round of golf yesterday made it almost unbearable. Never noticed how much I truly enjoyed having a cigarrette while waiting for the next shot. Of course it had to be slowest round of league play yet this year, 9 days since my last Camel Light....Damn you R.J. Reynolds, you had me there for a while, I'll tell ya that.

I dont miss smoking at work, can't smoke at the bar anyway, don't miss it at home, or being on the lake, or even driving. However, while standing there on the tee, there was nothing, absolutely nothing I wanted more than to light up a camel light. It wouldn't of even tasted that good with it being so hot out, wouldnt have smoked well either with the wind blowing. Those things did not even matter though. I would've lit one up and enjoyed every puff off that damn thing!

It's now the next day, and I still want a cigarrette after playing golf yesterday. Somehow, still holding out from smoking even one, is having a snowball effect. There is an end to these troubling days, I know since I've seen the end before. Maybe I should just quit playing golf, not like my game is any good now anyways!

Another day down, a new one to go, but nothing makes me miss smoking more than playing a slow (and lousy) round of golf.

Good luck to everyone quitting since it can be done,
mH

Jesus Montero - All hype?

Was there a reason the Yankees traded away the heralded Montero? Was he more a product of the Yankee hype than actual true MLB skill? So far it seems as though it was just that. Well at least in the Fantasy Baseball world anyway. Maybe too much was expected of him to begin the season. Especially with starting the season in Japan a week early, there has to be some setbacks right? Hopefully he gets on a roll here and quiets all concerns. I really hope so, since I do NOT want to have to rely on rotating on of the AJ's: Pierzynski or Ellis... wow just noticed both their names are AJ, oh man, please save me Jesus!

Cities held hostage - SEC investigating Marlins

Will anything come of this? I guarantee nothing will since this is not the first nor last time something like this has happened. Major League Baseball along with every other major sports league continues to promote actions similar to what the Marlins did. How many cities need to be held hostage? When was the last time an owner built his stadium with his own money? The only thing that has changed is that the owners have become more aggressive and much more bold. The major sports teams know they are so big that most cities will do anything they can to keep the teams in the city. The only ones who get the raw end of the deal are the fans and people who live in the city and county.

It is ridiculous that the ones profiting from building new stadiums are always the ones who put almost no money into them. After paying for Comerica Park and then for Ford Field, construction of new stadiums leaves me bitter. Was there anything wrong with Tiger Stadium or The Silverdome? Nothing other than that they stood in the way of major profit. The talk of building a new stadium to replace Joe Louis Arena is the same.

Not only do the owners profit from increased revenue from new stadiums, they also profit from the land used for the stadiums. Who owns all the cheap waste land used for the new stadiums? The land that instantly becomes extremely valuable since it the site proposed for the new construction? The same people who claim they have no money and will leave town for a city that will build them a new stadium. Just come to Detroit and take a look at the gold mine that is Illitchville.
