People arrange pwerfectly good vacations to go see Tiger Woods hit a little ball out of site in the general direction of a clearing in a field. I can do that with my hay bailer.
There was absolute hysteria here in Melbourne during Tiger's visit, farmer. Crowds the likes of which had never been seen before at the golf!
I don't have a problem with Tiger, nor do I have a problem with the game of golf (though it does seem rather tedious to me, too). I have a problem with the amount of $$$ our state government throws at such "major events", claiming that it's good for the state's image. It's not just this event, it's the Grand Prix (heavily subsidized by the government) & god knows what else ... (That's dadpad's & my taxes at work! Grrrr ...)
Dadpad, do you know how much of the $3 million the government paid for?
