In case you've been living in a coma for the last few days, the ESPYS were last night. And this past Monday and Tuesday, Clear Men Scalp Therapy flew me out to Los Angeles to play in the ESPYS Celebrity Golf Classic and get a taste of what life is like when you're a famous face. Got to be honest, it didn't suck. Myself and three others were paired in a group (yep, a five-some) with ESPN's own Linda Cohn, who I will forever refer to as Linda "Cart Path" Cohn as seventy-five percent of her drives hit the cart path. Truly impressive ball-striking and accuracy.
Unfortunately, our team finished at a mere -6, which was good enough for something like a tenth place finish, while Stan Verrett's team --which was the group directly behind us -- lit up the course and made only one par their entire round finishing at -17. To say it was deflating to watch them surround every single hole they played would be an understatement. At one point, when they caught up to us, Verrett said one of the guys in his group was the best golfer he ever played with, and I believe it; every time I looked back they had four, six foot putts to choose from, we were lucky if we had two.
One of the cooler features during the tournament, aside from all the swag we got from Clear Men and others, was that we had a live scoreboard in our carts that showed us how every group was doing and as the holes amassed so did Team Verrett's impressive score.
Anyway, it was a great day and all a part of the lead up to last night's ESPYS with host Jon Hamm. In his opening, Hamm took some shots at athletes, but you'll notice those shots were fired in the direction of people who weren't even in attendance. But I have to hand it to him, he killed it. The video is below, and big THANK YOU to Clear Men Scalp Therapy for sending me (check out their ESPYS sweeps to win a chance to go to next year's ESPYS), as well as a regular-sized thanks to Cart Path Cohn for not using all of my sunscreen, just the majority of it.
