Been a while

July 20, 2009 - Seth Staskey
I know the Ohio Valley is upset because I have truly slacked on my blogging. A lot has happened since my last blog.

The Jamboree In The Hills is a thing of the past. Wow, how quickly that thing goes. I only made it to one day this year, and that was plenty. I know it's sad, but I just turned 29 and I am thinking I am out-growing the Jamboree scene. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it enough to still go a day or so, but you won't catch me all four days unless the lineup includes Journey, Chesney, Phil Collins and Tim McGraw as closers then sign me up. Two of those for certain will never come and the other two are probably well out of the Livenation price range for Jamboree.

Anyway since I wasn't wrapped up in the Jamboree all weekend, I had the opportunity to watch the British Open a little closer this year. And as I sat there on Friday morning watching Tiger about to miss the cut thinking no one is going to watch this, but Tom Watson changed all that for everyone. Talk about captivating a nation of fans. This guy is 59 years old and had a hip replacement and here is on Sunday with the lead on the 18th green of a Major Championship.

What better drama can you ask for? Well, Stewart Cink -- two groups ahead of Watson -- sank about 16-foot putt in the heart of the cup to get in the clubhouse at 2-under par. He then pulled away from Watson in the four-hole playoff.

Here's the thing, you almost have to feel bad for Cink because not many people are even talking about his first major win. They are talking about what Watson didn't accomplish.

I guess that's the nature of the beast.
