university of utah autographed helmetAlan is my best friend.  He and I grew up together.  We’re like brothers. He moved away to Philly years ago, worked his way up the business ladder and started a beautiful family.  We can go months without talking to each other and then we both can simultaneously say the same phrase word for word.

I have Alan to thank for many great things in my life.  About 5 years ago, he told me to start blogging about golf.  Years later, I’ve built one of the world’s best golf blogs, made hundreds of friends, played dozens of incredible golf courses, and met some of the most famous golfers in the world like Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, John Daly, Mike Weir etc.  Because of my blog I even got to play golf with George Brett.  I’ve hung out with Charles Barkely, John Elway, Mario Lemieux, met women from The Big Break (Debbie “DD,” Ashley Prang) and made connections even top CEO’s would envy.

I have another thing to add to my friend Alan’s thank you list.  This one is the helmet you see pictured here.  It’s an autographed Univerisity of Utah football helmet from the Sugar Bowl where my Utes completed the perfect 13-0 season.  Anyone who knows me or follows my blog knows I’m a HUGE UTE FAN.  Hell I even have Ute golf shoes.  This helmet was signed by the whole team during the Sugar Bowl.  When I opened this box I was in complete shock and for the 2nd time this year got goose bumps opening a package which came in the mail.

Alan my friend, my brother from a different mother,  I THANK YOU.

Love Tony

    I have the utmost respect for what Utah accomplished this year. One of our local schools, TCU, is in the same conference, and I know how good the football is that they play week in and week out.

    Having said that, I must share what I think of any time I hear a reference to Utah:

    It is possible that the two yutes…
    Ah, the two what? Uh… uh, what was that word?
    Uh… what word?
    Two what?
    What?
    Uh… did you say ‘yutes’?
    Yeah, two yutes.
    What is a yute?
    [beat]
    Oh, excuse me, your honor… Two YOUTHS.
