There’s gotta be a hundred different, better ways to spend $20.
Twenty bucks still has some buying power. It can get you into a USF (University of South Florida) football game and the Bulls are a nationally-ranked team.
It can buy you eight draft beers at AmVets Post 4 in Tampa.
Twenty bucks still has buying power at Wal-Mart.
Which brings us to the old Tiger and Phil Fiasco on Friday, Nov. 23, day after Thanksgiving. This “you gotta be kidding” Pay-Per-View has been set at a “suggested” price of $19.99. For the suckers willing to waste twenty bucks, it will begin at 3 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, from sunny Shadow Creek out there in Vegas.
The organizers are trying like all-get-out to entice more suckers to fork over the dough, telling us that Phil and Eldrick will be encouraged to make side bets such as long drive or closest to the hole on par threes. Bettting? Ah, now they’re right in Mickelson’s wheelhouse. He’s the PGA Tour’s King Of Illegal Betting although in Vegas, everything’s legal. “Betting is illegal at Bushwood and I never slice!”
So it is a ludicrous Winner Take All with the two combatants allegedly donating the gambling proceeds to the other’s foundation.
It’s all so very, very bush-league. Perhaps they can arm-wrestle for $100,000 at the turn.
Good news is there should be some good football on at the same time.
