To be honest it's a mix of golf, travel, history and humor.  Exceptional in all areas.

There's a chance I'm being a bit of a homer.

Still have Fever Pitch laying around to read, but I'll put this on my lengthy list.  My reading time has diminished though.

I've gone to find myself.  If I get back before I return, keep me here.

You gots to read Fever Pitch.  A poignant look at the insidious mental disease known as Gooneritis.

Excerpt:

Quote
@ Old Head of Kinsale

Our looper explained to us how he'd recently been out with a German husband and wife who worked him like a Clydesdale.  Their bags were heavier than Guinness barrels, and they'd been barking orders like he was hard of hearing.  At seventeen they stopped to snap some pictures, and the husband pointed out to the sea and asked the caddy, "Lusitania?  Where?  Which way?"

"Why are you asking me?" the caddy replied, dropping their bags on the tee box.  "Ye are the *fudge*ers that sunk it."
