Trying to play a course called Stonewater this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me. The theme of the year has been wet and I’m hoping to buck the trend. I think I’ve played like 4-6 rounds so far this year and only one of said rounds has been dry. I love Ohio and all, but this needs to change. Southern Ohio is all blooming and warm, but we’re still gray and gloomy in Northeast Ohio. Sweet.

I’m conflicted because as much respect as I have for Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus (and believe me, I have a TON of respect for them) they need to understand that games evolve both on the course and in the realm of technology, and to hold today’s golfers to a standard that these fine gentlemen do in respect to their era is foolish and shortsighted, almost as foolish and shortsighted as toneypenna, but we’ll cross that bridge in the comments section.

But I’m just curious…these are incredibly smart, savvy, well read individuals who know the game of golf better than anyone.  These guys know that sports evolve and that things change as time goes on, I mean, hell, these three were catalysts for such expansive growth in golf that it’s really hard to understand where they’re coming from.  Why did Arnie complain about balls being stopped from the rough?  Why is Gary Player accusing pros of using performance enhancing drugs?  Why is Jack Nicklaus going through great pains to discredit today’s players through complaints about technology and strategy?

This is a different era of golf and it should be treated as such. (more…)

Well, the Arnold Palmer with green tea was certainly an afternoon delight! The taste is very similar to the original, only much, much better! The hints of green tea coupled with the lemonade is a taste-splosion waiting to happen. If you find one anywhere, indulge. As it says on the back of the can: “Arnold Palmer loved mixing tea with lemonade. He drank it so much that the drink became known as an Arnold Palmer Half & Half.”

Something special after the jump for all you knuckle heads after the jump.


I’m sure many of you are well aware of the Half & Half from the AriZona Beverage Co., also known as the Arnold Palmer. Its half iced tea and half lemonade. It is a tremendous delight at the turn. With such a long drive to work everyday (44.25 miles to be exact), coffee stops are routine and more than necessary. And today I chose Sheetz as my coffee destination. When I walked in I felt the desire to splurge for a nice Afternoon Delight and to my wonderful surprise I saw an Arnold Palmer. BUT, to much surprise I found an Arnold Palmer with… brace yourselves… Green Tea! Check back this afternoon for a full recap. I for one am extremely excited.
