I heard a very odd quote from my buddy Brad, co-creator of the Annual Christmas Classic golf tournament, when I called him two days ago on Christmas day:
“This year’s Annual Christmas Classic has been canceled due to favorable weather conditions.”
Yes, the tournament which takes place in the deep snow of the Olympic venue and ski town of Salt Lake on Christmas day was canceled because the golf course was open!
Retaining the championship for another year
The good news is that I get to retain the championship trophy which I won last year, and all the accompanying privileges of being the champion for the next year. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to convince the powers that be at Augusta National Golf Club to award an invitation to the Masters Tournament for the current CCC (Christmas Classic Champ). Perhaps next year.
