This is sure to be all over the web, everywhere, but I had to post it anyway because it’s so damn funny. I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez on many occasion. He’s such a cool cat, full of so many stories.
During an appearance in Puerto Rico (his home) on Golf Channel’s Big Break NFL, Chi Chi’s attempt at the “break the glass” gig went terribly wrong.
An instant classic.
Man this story sucks. My newest famous golf pal, who I met in Puerto Rico a couple of months ago, was robbed. Chi Chi Rodriguez (pictured with me on the right) had four armed gunmen enter his home at 1:30am last night. They tied him up and spent 45 minutes ripping him off. They even took the wedding ring off of his wife’s finger. Chi Chi’s wife was a very nice lady who I talked to for quite a while. I feel for them.
Fortunately, for whatever it means, the robbers were “gentle” and “respectful.” Not sure how you can respectfully rob someone but at least they’re OK and weren’t hurt.
I’m SO tired I can’t even begin to express how I must crash and go to sleep. Today was a great day, full of awesome events like simply GETTING HERE. I met several PGA Tour players, shot a ton of images and the best part of the night was meeting my new pal and golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez. I sat and talked to Chi Chi and his wife for a while. What a great guy, and the ambassador of golf to Puerto Rico.
I’d love to cover more, but I haven’t slept in nearly 48 hours… Must go to bed now. Stay tuned.
I’m also tweeting and facebooking my updates from Puerto Rico so check them out.
