A Thanksgiving Story

  |   Newsletter

Greetings Golfers,

Well, today is the big shopping day – Black Friday. But for me, this holiday is not about shopping, it’s about eating. So, it’s not “Shop until you drop” … it’s “Eat until you drop”.

I know that’s real classy, but what can I say? It’s Thanksgiving – I’m thankful I can eat.

Here’s a nice story. When I was in high school, I was a wrestler. My sophomore year, our first meet was the night before Thanksgiving. I’d cut a ton of weight, and all I cared about was eating again – the match was barely on my radar. Well, I gained 13 lbs over the Holiday weekend and completely disgusted my family… even my grandparents avoided me… you can tell I’m still emotionally scarred.

Hopefully, I won’t gain 13 lbs this weekend. But, I will catch up on my nourishment and football viewing – hope you do, too.
