The Commish Report – 9/27/16


commish-header2Well folks, this is a tough week in sports and I’m not referring to the “Rock ’em Sock ’em” Presidential debate.  The little I watched reminded me of the scene in Pee Wee Herman’s Big Adventure where Pee Wee and his adversary spar off back and forth saying, “I know you are but what am I? I know you are but what am I?”

No, the world lost one of the greatest sports figures in Arnold Palmer.  In the golf world, he was “the King” and Arnie’s Army encompassed the world, spreading golf and humanity to all corners of the world.  Thanks Mr. Palmer for sharing yourself, your talents and your personality with all of us.  Well done…87 years is a great life !

Game 4 results:
Home team New Orlean Saints — 32
Visiting team Atlanta Falcons — 45
Winning book # 47

Group 1 winner – Ross Parker (another Scheve insider — still being under investigation)
Group 2 winner – Jane Klein ( long time KC raffle supporter, we appreciate )
Group 3 winner – Bryan Gray ( beer tasting expert — he know’s most all of them, even Huinker’s Keystone Light )

Congrats to this week’s winner’s and to everyone else, don’t give up.  You still have 14 more chances to win.  Also, if you’re looking for a good movie and a story of a great American feat, go watch Sully, the Miracle on the Hudson.

And finally, it’s Ryder Cup this week up in Chaska, MN at Hazeltine National Golf Club…..in my opinion, this is one of the greatest sporting spectacles around.  Look for a group of us on tv, wearing our Red White and Blue and proudly cheering on our American team.  With your help and with Arnold looking down from above, the Americans have a good chance and I’m sure will represent us proudly.  This American / European match up, truly shows the world all that is good!

And with that, I think I’ll have an Arnold Palmer:)
