I blame the color orange (because it is Georgia/Florida week)

Not that this is surprising news:

Former PGA golfer John Daly recently spent a night in jail after Winston-Salem police found him drunk outside a city restaurant, the Winston-Salem Journal reported Wednesday.

Lt. Tyrone Phelps told the newspaper that Daly was held at the Forsyth County Jail early Sunday morning to sober up.

That restaurant: Hooters.  That isn’t the interesting part.  Actually, that is the predictable part.

The interesting part is that he was part of a tour (presumably his own, since he is reportedly doing a Hooters tour).  The tour group wouldn’t let him back on the bus!

The newspaper reported that Daly was traveling on a tour bus and told police that the people on the bus did not want him back on it after the Hooters closed.

Daly was given the night in jail to sober up.

According to North Carolina state law, police can in some cases jail a person overnight to sober up.

Anybody that has ever watched The Andy Griffith Show knows that.

Seriously, I take enough flack from people here without John Daly playing into stereotypes and getting drunk off his ass at a Hooters. Remember, he has a past history with problems at Hooters costing him.  I know he was sponsored by them for a while, which I felt was a true marriage made in a trailer.  I very nice trailer, with the wheels taken off, plush carpet and a redwood deck, but a trailer none the less.  Look, I love wings and beer as much as the next guy.  We can debate the merits of where the best wings are all day (my pick is Locos), but like any guy, I like Hooters, too.  I swear just I go for the articles, though.   The only comeback I have is that Champaign has a Hooters, but Athens does not.

But sending John Daly on a Hooters tour is not a good idea.  It is about as good as him having his own winery.  Dear Lord.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
