We spent Saturday with the whole family as we celebrated my father's 80th birthday. My nephew and I woke up at 5am and shot a round of golf with the old man. I won't go into specifics... but the old man kicked our butts.
2001 Upper Deck #70 Adam Scott RC
But at least, I now have something in common with Adam Scott. We both played hard, but ended up losing to a couple of class acts. Happy Birthday Papa Fuji... and congratulations Ernie Els on your second British Open Championship.
And if spending time with my family wasn't good enough... my beloved Oakland A's swept the New York Yankees this weekend. According to ESPN, it was their first four game sweep over the Bronx Bombers since 1972.
To top it off... my favorite player, who lost his starting job last month, finally hit his first home run of the season. Congratulations Kurt!
