Get in the Hole!

I have a confession to make. The past two days Brendan, John, and I have watched multiple hours of the PGA's US Open. Honestly, none of us were avid watchers of golf before this weekend but we were drawn in to the action(if you can call it that) in a hurry. On Saturday Tiger Woods was doing terrible, than he hits shots from the sidewalk, the side of a hill, and like a 60 ft putt to take the lead at the end of the day. On Sunday he starts off terrible again and than hits a shot from the ruff and another long put to face a playoff on Monday, it was crazy. But probably the most entertaining part of this whole thing was how whenever Tiger Woods hits these shots the crowd in the background goes straight stupid! Folks jumping up and down with their hands in the air in utter jubilation, even though they've seen Tiger do this stuff like a zillion time its still the same reaction. Even more entertaining though is that consistantly after every putt he takes, right as the ball moves away from his putter, there is always the guy that yells "Get in the hole!" , the phrase delivered in such a way that one may suspect the man's very life balances on whether or not the ball falls in the hole. Its absolutely breathtaking, yet halarious at the same time. Frankly, I suggest you all should try watching some golf, I could almost guaruntee that its a stress reliever.

the funny thing is is that we acted just as ridiculously and jubilantly as the crowd on tv
