It’s a club longer than it looks, “Two club breeze” and Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

Lot of fun
Stephen Ames won $675,000 and the Skins tournament. Fred Couples pocketing $325,000; in case you don’t know, Skins is when rich golfers play for hundreds of thousands per hole and lavish prizes. It’s like watching Bill Gates scratching off winning lottery numbers.

Flea bitten
The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, Flea, lost his home in the Malibu fire. Flea is just glad everyone is OK and they plan to relocate and reside in the fur of another dog.

Getting up there
The Eagles were on “Sixty Minutes;” I don’t want to say the Eagles are getting old, but halfway during their performance of “Hotel California”: the band stopped and yelled at each other; “You punks turn that noise down.”

The Eagles were on “Sixty Minutes;” I don’t want to say the Eagles are getting old, but now instead of groupies, drugs and booze its water-aerobics, proscriptions, and Metamucil.

Hate to see that
The San Diego Chargers rolled over the lowly Baltimore Ravens, 32-14. I don’t want to say that the Ravens’ offense is bad, but on Thanksgiving, when they passed the Turkey, it was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

Not good
The cruise ship Explorer struck an iceberg and sank in the Antarctic, nobody was injured but the seasick and frigid passengers will not be resigning for the Global Warming Tour any time soon.

The New York Giants were crushed by the Minnesota Vikings 42-17, thanks to Eli Manning’s four interceptions, three returned for touchdowns. It was bad enough that Manning was benched, Giant fans now call him Jimmy Christ in reference to Jesus’s useless brother James.

Better Rex
The Chicago Bears helped the Chargers by beating the Denver Broncos in overtime, 37-34. Rex Grossman had a good game. To give San Diegans an idea how badly Rex has been playing this year, Rex has made Phillip Rivers look like Tom Brady on a date with a drunk super model.
