    First tee 

    This is going to be a long day. If you hit it over the net, you have to impregnate your playing partner

    AFDO pairings party 

    Delicious Bakery sponsors the pairings party with some amazing pimento cheese (it’s funny) and salted caramel brownies. It isn’t quite noon and Bur-Mil is already sold out of beer.

      It’s amazing that they continue to have a competing event with us…it’s like they don’t have a calendar…sure, let’s put the World Series and the Super Bowl on the same day…chuckleheads…

      I honestly thought it was an AFD joke that this would be played on Saturday (which by the way is the 31st, not the 30th). So I will plan to stop by and cheer/jeer before/during the awareness raising but will definitely come to Speakeasy after the event to toast the winners and whoever is still sober enough to play corn hole.

    7th AFDO FAQs 

    7th Annual Inaugural (That Mean’s “First”, J. Alex) April Fool’s Day Open to Raise Awareness Frequently Asked Questions  

    Each year the AFDO Rules Committee is inundated with literally tens of questions regarding the event. If this document does not address the question you have in mind, please feel free to contact Ben “Caddy Chairman For Life” Owen. (Henceforth, let “Frequently” mean “at least once” or “anticipated”)

    Q: What the hell is this all about anyway?

    A: A few years ago, a few friends set out one warm day to play Par 3. They realized it was April Fool’s Day, made up some rules, got hammered, fell down…and an event was born. Last year we had 4 eight-somes playing and a gallery of 10 or so.

    Q: Who is this J. Alex character?  (More …)

    Merry St. Patrick’s Day…and Happy Birthday to The Brother 

    I wrote this a few years ago for Spotlight Magazine. It has since become my little brother’s birthday card. One year I posted it on the FaceBooks…Heberble wrote in the comments one of the funniest things I’ve ever read about St Patty’s. Heberble: I always imagined St. Patrick much like Samuel Jackson. “Get these muthaf**kin’ snakes of the muthaf**kin’ island. I hope he gets his own holiday, too.” Heberble makes me laugh.

    Saint Patrick’s Day is my favorite holiday. I grew up believing that March 17th was observed because it was my brother’s birthday. If you ever have the opportunity to be born on a day that most of the English speaking world celebrates, I highly recommend it. A few years ago my birthday fell on Super Bowl Sunday. Enjoying everyone unknowingly joining me for a birthday toast, I realized that my brother experiences this phenomenon every year. It rocked.

    Aside from being the anniversary of my brother’s birth, St. Patrick’s Day is for honoring Saint Patrick’s various religious accomplishments, and as legend has it, for chasing the snakes out of Ireland. Who wouldn’t want to revel in this? Forget the Easter Bunny. I’m for the snake-chasing guy. The good Saint died on March 17th, 460 A.D., which is really ironic. The odds of dying on the holiday named after you have got to be like 1 in 1000.
