My home course, River Oaks, is in for some changes in a year or so… Check out this beautiful mock-up of what #1 fairway will look like when the power company adds a freaking 120 foot pole in the middle of it. Nice…NOT

Comcast Customer Service Sucks

With my recent move, I had the unpleasure of having to deal with Comcast’s customer service. Actually, even using the words “Comcast” and “customer service” in the same sentence should be against the law.

It took 1.5 weeks from when I requested it, to have my service transfered a few hundred yards down the street. I specifically told them that I’d be using the service and keeping my home office intact at my old location until the switch. Sure enough, I get calls on my cell phone from friends asking why my phone is “no longer in service.”

I call Comcast on my cell and I have to punch no less than 20 keys on my phone just to get in the queue for a customer service rep. After typing in “1” for English, my phone number, and a zillion other keystrokes, I get disconnected. Then it is back to the 20 more key strokes, 1 for English etc.. …rinse, repeat.

I witness my pal’s ace!

After moving the last 4-5 days I’m exhausted. My round today was a disaster. But on the #8 hole (our 17th since we played the back first), my pal Dave Shields got an ACE! He was 174 out. Funny thing was that our other buddy Dan hit one in to about three feet. We thought that was Dave’s shot.

I’ll have a picture of Dave and my free Corona I drank posted shortly!


Ogilvy ends Tiger’s win streak, so I hear

It had to happen to Tiger eventually. There’s NO way he could go undefeated in a season, especially with majors like the U.S. Open where one measly bad swing can cost you the tournament.

Geoff Ogilvy definitely has ice water in his veins and seems to be one of the few who don’t completely turn to mush when they have a chance to beat Tiger. Congrats to Geoff.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch ANY of this last week’s PGA Tour coverage due to my moving of HOG headquarters. I’ve got 99.7% of HOGHQ and my personal effects moved to my new and spacious place, still walking distance from my home course. But I’m handicapped due to my lack of an internet connection, TV or phone until this Thursday. It sucks to be so dependent and connected via the internet and then have the cable cut. I need my binky!

Tomorrow is league and I haven’t hit a ball in a week. I’m excited to get my work done in the morning and then take the rest of the day off!


Move almost done

I’m still in the midst of moving HOG world headquarters. My lifeline to the web is still at my old location so I’m not able to blog as much until my service provider switches me over…

Oh and happy American Easter. I’m Greek, and my Easter isn’t until next month.
