Mike Golic, Do We Really Have to Do This?

Nothing to me is more ignorant than people that are stuck in ideas that held true decades ago, continuing to harp on these thoughts with consistency as our world has long grown out of those pants.

Extreme cases are racism, sexism or changing the television by hand, and a mild case is when people continue to bash golfers as "non-athletes."

This happened when Mike and Mike appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman Monday night and Golic said golfers weren't athletes (around the 1:40 mark).

I will agree with a few things. Golfers in the past weren't that athletic. Some, like Jack Nicklaus, were born with a natural athletic mold, but there wasn't much training going on when golf started to become popular. The game is based mostly on mental toughness, like the Mikes talked about, but this holds true in all sports. A good example of this - in practice, I'm positive Jay Cutler could complete just as sharp a pass as Tom Brady, but in a playoff game when he needs it, would you trust him to be able to place it just like Brady could?

Anyway, this "are golfers athletes" argument is moot because golfers are working on their bodies as much, if not more, than other sports. I know that the sport has overweight golfers and people that don't appear to be in great shape, but when is the last time one of these guys has played at a consistent level? They might win a time or two, but the ones that are dominating are the ones that are beating up their bodies. As a trainer once told me, if there is an edge to be had in golf these days, it's found in the gym.

To complete my point about this, I will attach pictures of Mike Golic in his prime and a picture of Tiger Woods in top form. You decide which one is a better athlete.

Does your site have a contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd like
to send you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

The Michael Kors Totes Patent Tote is out choose for the drop. Don't make the mistake of being lured by the strong commissions that you see around, because if the product is not going to be worth the money, then there's absolutely no use of promoting something like that.Most of the quality stuff was imported from other fashion capitals in the world including France and Italy. The other thing that should be considered is thickness of the material that you want to seal like for example if the material is too thick like 20 mil, then you should make sure that you choose a sealer that has a seal thickness of at least 20 mil.This bag can brighten up any fall outfit. The retail price on this bag also tends to make it simply available for nearly anybody. You can find thousands and thousands of diverse handbags to make a decision on from, but if you're browsing for a present day, fashionable and large quality purse you need to absolutely contemplate a michael kors outlet free shipping .
