The GrunkleGuru

Grunkle is a slang term for the thick rough on a golf course that I have been using for many years. Given my penchant for inaccurate tee balls, I have become a bit of a guru out of the thick stuff, hence the name. This is a site for my random thoughts about sports (espeically golf) and life in general. While nothing special, it will hopefully offer a break from the daily drudgery for both you and me.

Warm Thoughts On A Cold Day

Let’s face it; here in Greensboro it is a little cold today. Forget that, it’s @#$#$%^ freezing out today and I hate it. Golf is out of the question, and so is just about any outdoor activity, unless of course you want to join (or start) a polar bear club, or head up to the mountains for a little skiing. So, instead I am forced to sit here in the office and pontificate on warmer times, and while Mr. Sun has some great suggestions for the cold weather, I would like to offer one up that might not cause others to question your moral fortitude as much. We are less than a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training.

There are many questions that will bear watching in the upcoming season. Will the Red Sox defend their title? Will the Yankees be able to take advantage of the AARP discounts most of their players will be eligible for? Will Barry Bond’s head shrink back to normal size once he stops taking those clear and cream concoctions that he does not know anything about? Will my fantasy baseball team climb out of the basement (it better or I might fire myself as GM)? These and all the other questions will be answered as time goes on.

So give yourself some warm thoughts thinking of baseball and summer for this cold spell will pass (global warming assures of this, right)

Note: This post originally included discussion of the team here in Greensboro, but it had turned into too much of a dissertation (about three pages) so I am working on parsing in down to a point where you might actually be interested. I'll have something on that soon.
