Carpe diem. Tomorrow.

Fair (Weather) or Foul Fans?

miamiThe sudden departure of so many Miami fans Tuesday night, when they were certain the Heat would lost to San Antonio–instead of launching a comeback for a 103-100 OT win–brings up the age-old debate:

Aside from kids or emergencies, is it OK to leave big games early? Or any game? Do real fans worry about traffic or an early day at work? What do you think? Tell us in our poll!

A New Take on an Old Game

Go ahead. Make my play.

Go ahead. Make my play.

Watching Phil Mickelson double-bogey to his sixth runner-up U.S. Open finish on Sunday was painful, but I couldn’t help laughing at the USGA’s genius new ad campaign, “While We’re Young.”

Taking the famous phrase coined by Rodney Dangerfield’s “colorful” character in every guy I’ve ever dated’s favorite movie “Caddyshack,” famous faces like Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods, and Annika Sorenstam try to fix what makes golf so boring (yes, I said it) to watch, and frustrating to play: it’s so slooooow. The USGA hopes current players will pledge to lighten up, and new players will tee up.

The ads are all great, but my favorite is when a certain bad-ass actor is having a bad day on the links. Watch them all here.

Myrtle Beach has them all, and often with discounted, multi-course packages. Here are a few of our favorite places to hit the green in Myrtle Beach.
