How is golf like surfing?

I stayed up until after 1 p.m. watching a) the PGA (did you know six hours of hi-def will take up most of your DVR space?) and b) a documentary on surfing.

The latter was actually a heck of lot more interesting. Though Phil Mickelson’s Friday round was a lot like the surfing film. You know, real highs, real lows and some spectacular crashes in between.

But I digress, and after five hours of sleep it’s no wonder. I can’t wait for the golf to come on so I can put my butt in the chair, put up the foot rest, grab the remote … and take a nap.

Anyway, the main subject of this blog is Inland Northwest sports. So let’s get to it.
