yep, but i think of him as Walter Hagan from Bagger Vance, or the defense attorney in the Insider!

Comment 07 May 2015

While we are waiting, here is some trivia that some may not know-- - the actor who played DDay in Animal House is one of those character actors who is highly recognizable today, as he has been in a ton of movies , tv shows (Bagger Vance, the Insider, Runaway Jury, Cinderella Man, W, Lincoln)

The Bon Scott era was the only version of AC/DC i saw (5x between '78 and '79).  This is how i remember them!

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Thanks. Forgot to mention that one =-- I've played both courses there. Also, wildfire at the JW Marriott.   I like Grayhawk but of all of the courses i've played out there, it seems like i always run into a really slow round there.

In my experience, all you have to do is look the part, but act it.  You don't have to be a pro, or scratch golfer, just don't play slow, respect the course, and know and follow the rules.  After that, you should have fun and probably get invited back.

Totally agree.  Also, its important to play the appropriate tees -- don't play beyond your handicap (e.g., if you are a 25, you have no business playing from the tips).

Baltusrol - both the upper and lower courses.  On the 18th hole, lower course, there is a plaque where Jack Nicklaus hit a 240 yard 1 iron  on the green in the '67 US Open to seal the win and beat Arnie.  So much history going back over 100 years- 7 US Opens; 2 PGAs (its there again in 2016), 4 US Amateurs.  All the greats played there, going back to Jones and Hagan.

Bethpage Black

Yale Golf Club

Maybe not legendary, but i played a few PGA Tour stops, which were a lot of fun:

Doral

Bay Hill

TPC Scottsdale

PGA National Championship Course (Bear Trap)

_______

A couple of my favorite courses, which i wouldnt call legendary, but they are awesome:

Streamsong (Red and Blue) - fantastic place. Two top 100 courses - only open a couple of years. They are building a third.

We Po Ka -- near Phoenix.  Saguaro course is great.

This looks pretty good -I think you are dead on with the QB analysis

A couple of others that I might sneak in:  Jim Lachey, John Frank, Jim Otis. 

But I can't really find fault with any of your picks.

Definitely a great show and a really nice set (Breath, Chloe/Crown, Pilate).  The second Brooklyn show was during the OSU/Iowa game, which was closer than it should have been -- i caught the end of it on my phone while i was in line

Got to see Pearl Jam at Key Arena in Seattle. Best. Show. Ever.

Which tour?! all of their shows in Seattle are awesome -- i always download Seattle shows (the last show of the 2000 tour is sick).  

Best Pearl Jam show I've seen is probably the third night at the closing of the Philly Spectrum in 2009. And all of the MSG shows have been incredible.

I hear ya.  I'm out on these reunion tours.  To me, they just don't sound the same....almost a bit slow.  And for what you pay for them...

I've seen the Stones on nearly every tour since '78 and at this point, its just about nostalgia. They havent put out any decent new music in 15 years (and the standard of excellence they achieved in the 70s started to fall off in the 80s). Only reason I've seen any recent tours was because tickets fell in my lap - i did enjoy the last show i saw in Newark (last one I saw featured a bunch of guests - Springsteen, Black Keys, Ga Ga, John Mayer, plus Mick Taylor played on Midnight Rambler) .

Except for Pearl Jam.  They still bring it.

Now you are talking!  They remain one of the very best live bands you will ever see.  Different show every night -- i always try to catch multiple shows.  I caught both of their Brooklyn shows in 2013 - got to hear Oceans and Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns.
