My Love for Sports Extends Beyond Golf

While golf is certainly my passion, I am a fan of many other sports as well. While you will not see me between the hash marks at a large stadium as you will on the greenway of my favorite courses, I am still an avid follower of football. And, this year my Missouri Tigers are off to a fantastic 4-0 start! We’ve got some big games coming up over the next few weeks that truly will define the way in which our season is going to end up. I am hoping we can pull off a couple of major upsets along the way! Then, on the professional football front, I am watching the St. Louis Rams begin with another disappointing start to the season. Enough said about them.

What about you? Are you someone who dedicates his autumn weekends to football? How do you feel about your team’s chances this year? I always love to learn more about who is reading my blog and my books, so I would love to hear about your football allegiances!

No matter which team we root for every week, I am sure there are times when all of us have yelled at our television screens over a bad call made by a referee. It seems impossible sometimes that an official can miss such an obvious call. Is it possible the oversight was done on purpose? In my third novel, Tuey’s Course, I introduce my readers to a referee who fixes games in return for a share in the gambling profits. Let’s hope this kind of criminal behavior is not too common when our favorite teams are on the field.

If you haven’t read my books yet, I hope you will soon! All three of my novels—Lifetime Loser, Finish Line, and Tuey’s Course—have the fictional Prairie Winds Golf Course as the backdrop. If you like golf and all of the personalities who hang out in the clubhouse, these books are for you!
