Driving down Washington Road this morning to Augusta National Golf Club in Daytona 500-like traffic I saw a group of women, most of them in pink, holding signs and rallying for women’s rights.
HONK IF YOU SUPPORT WOMEN’S RIGHTS, one sign said.
I couldn’t honk; I’m leading a one-man campaign to reduce unnecessary noise. But I could wave. So I stuck my arm out the window and waved and a few of the women waved back.
Across the street was the Hooter’s at which John Daly hangs out when he’s in Augusta. If you truly embrace women’s rights – and I do – you have to acknowledge that women have the right to work at Hooter’s.
Smoke free at Augusta? Nah
The U.S. Open will be smoke free this year, but the Masters is not. So you encounter groups of guys on the golf course with fat stogies hanging between their lips. There’s nothing wrong with smoking a cigar and humming "Born to be Wild."
But I have a question. How many of the guys with the cigars are not allowed to smoke them at home?
We're not the only one
The folks that run most sporting events act as if theirs is the only one going on. So if there are eight TVs in the press room, each is turned to a particular game or race or event. Give the Masters credit. There are three huge screens in the press center. As I write this, one shows the leaderboard, one shows footage from the tournament and one shows highlights from Wednesday night’s Phoenix-San Antonio game.
