A John Daly Interview Unlike Any Other
There is a page click rule amongst golf bloggers on the Internet, and it's a fairly simple formula. Tiger Woods + John Daly + Hot Female Golfers = views. It is like the Pythagorean Theorem, only a tad more whorish. Normally with Daly, you're writing something up like, "Big John loses $700,000 betting on a dead horse," or "Daly gets thrown out of strip club for taking off shirt." You don't normally get an interview like 790 The Zone did during Masters week. Make sure you click the link to check out the full interview, but here is my favorite line.
On gambling/playing the ponies:
“Nah, I haven’t been doing that either. Hell, I’m broke, bub, can’t do it. Economy’s so bad, slot machines are cold, everything’s cold, they got everything set so no one can win.”
In related news, playing the slots is the right-field of Las Vegas. If you're going to lose money, at least have some fun with it, like playing Blackjack or going to a strip club. Both carry about the same odds for a win.
