2008 Vegas PGA Expo Post #1

Unfortunately I’m posting from a crappy computer with a dysfunctional spacebar.  The press room doesn’t have an open wireless or wired internet connection and Mandalay Bay is asking for $500 to hook my laptop up to wireless.

I’d love to be posting tons of pictures and videos from the show, but I can only do that if MY computer is hooked up, not some generic peeeceee in the press room which doesn’t “haveaworkingspacebar.”

So unless something changes on my end, I won’t be able to get any of my images and video from the show posted until later this week.


Rain drop in Vegas causes airline havoc

Greetings from the Salt Lake airport. My flight was scheduled to leave 30 minutes ago. I’m posting via my iPhone & a new app for mobile blogging.

Apparently bad weather in Vegas has shut down incoming flights. I have to wait here an hour for the next update on the conditions

Bad weather? Someone must have heard a rumor that a raindrop may have been seen in the area.

Update

I’m now in the plane (1.6 hours late now) but we have to sit on the runway for 45 minutes before we can take off.

I’m packin’ my gear now (camera, laptop and a couple of golf shirts). I’ll be landing in Vegas in time for din-din tonight and then hitting the sack resting for the PGA Show Fall Expo. I’ll be live blog-casting from the show and taking lots of photos of all the cool new golf products I find.

I haven’t attended this show and I’m sure it won’t be close to as big as the main PGA Show in Orlando. That being said, this will be a good chance to do some research with companies and individuals who may not make it to Orlando.

Meeting Tuesday at 3:00

HOG readers and The Golf Space members who are attending the show will be getting together at 3:00 Tuesday! We’re meeting at the “Swingreminders” booth, #962.

See you there!


HOG breaks 1900 golf blog posts

1900 Posts

Somehow I missed this about eight golf blog posts ago. This humble golf blog has just surpassed 1900 posts, not to mention just passing 2000 comments.

2000 comments

It is not as easy to comment here as it is on other blogs, and thus there are less comments per post than I’d like. Over the years this site has been slammed by spammers and spambots so I’ve implemented some super high strength countermeasures. Some people don’t like jumping through all the hoops and choose not to comment. To them I say sack up and jump, because I’m not letting the spammers win.

Might as well mention the photo gallery

OK while I’m at it I might as well put a small mention about the HOG Golf Photo Gallery which is currently at nearly 9,000 golf images!


I have to “pay” to comment on your myspace page? WTF? LOL! ROFTL!

I got the funniest myspace message today.

“My name is Summer. I am the new Director of Marketing for The Weekenders Golf Tour. I would like to thank you in advance for all of your support. Although, I regret to announce that our legal team has informed us that we may no longer accept advertisements on our MySpace page from anyone who is not a sponsor. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. I hope that we will continue to work together in the future. Have a great day and a better tomorrow.”

So am I to interpret that Summer (pardon me, her “legal team”) is saying she wants me to “pay” to post a comment on her myspace page? Wow. Plain wow. And I thought my “no strippers” myspace policy was strict.

Well I hope they take PayPal ’cause I’m just dyin’ to pony up some cash from the last set of clubs I sold on ebay. I can’t wait to pay to have my comment appear right between the plastic fantastic stripper hotties and the gangsta rappas. LOL! ROFL!

Oh, one more thing..
