Low Prices on golf equipment...

Since the ecomony is bottoming out... it seems that prices on everything seem to be dropping. I recently found some salivation-worthy golf equipment that I purchased immediately... a full set of golf clubs... Callaway X-20 irons! 3i-Pw, this set has custom weighting and shaft stiffness that's perfect for a guy my height, taking into consideration my swing speed and posture... they are amazingly accurate: Seriously, I don't think I could throw a football as straight as I can hit a golf ball with these irons... it's amazing. I get a full-on Kool-Aid Man smile on my face every time I hear that lovely "THWACK!" as the iron grabs a touch of grass right beneath that ball and fires it like a cannon off into the sunset, eclipsing the flag as it sails almost magnetically towards the green with enough backspin to make even the most equilibrious (yes, I made this word up) figure skater vomit from the dizzies.

Despite that ridiculous tangent, the point is that there is an upside to this downer economy... things are getting cheaper, and not just the necessities, but also the fun stuff like golf junk for golfin' junkies.

Old-School Golf Hats

See the thing about them is they're cool (retro, vintage cool) as long as they go with the outfit, which includes buckled shoes, knee socks, and a pair of plaid knickers. Today, if you wear one just for the hell of it, then I dub thee a jackass.

Go buy yourself a few real golf hats that suit today's style tastes, get them in all your favorite colours, get one that really "brings out your eyes" I don't really care... just get one or two or a bakers dozen soon. The bill will protect your eyes, and the style will protect mine from seeing a jackass out on the golf course.


Oh, and if you do decide to go old school with your garb, at least use some updated golf equipment, like clubs and bags and what-not. No one wants to see a guy shooting triple bogie with a set of old woodies and a 19 pound bag that was old enough to vote in the Nixon election...

Get your golf equipment now! It's on sale!!!

So it's that time of year again... new golf equipment comes on the market and I have to sift through countless gimmicks and money traps to find the good stuff. Luckily, I've been doing my research and have learned that if you need new clubs this year, Taylormade irons are the way to go. They provide longer, straighter shots with more spin than Fox news... that means they'll hit the green, they'll BITE the green, and stay there while you walk up, bragging to your friends before you sink that 3-foot putt for yet another birdie. Start rackin' up the skins and your golfing buddies' respect with a new set of irons this season. Trust me!

Thoughts & Prayers please....

I'd like to take this time to express my deepest sadness for my Aunt Melody... she an accountant and right-hand-woman at an exhibit company called Expo3 and basically keeps the place running and the exhibit builders don't know what to do without her
... she recently learned that she has a tumor on her lung and we're not sure what it is yet or what will happen from here... Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers :-/

Attention! golf equipment is on sale!

Yep, that's right... every time spring begins to approach, you can find spectacular deals on all your "necessary" golf equipment... Although your wife may wonder why you need a new putter after just purchasing one last year, you know why you need a new one... because playing with new-fangled equipment and this year's newest innovations in golf is FUN! I think this year, I'm going to look at Taylormade drivers. In my opinion, they are the best in the game, and the shapes and weight designs that they are making this year are absolutely extraordinary. I'm hoping to lower my handicap by at least 3 strokes over the summer, so wish me luck!

Airplanes & fabrication exhibits...

Well, I've recently been out of school for winter break and for some reason picked up one of the nerdiest of hobbies: playing Flight Simulator in Google Earth. I even cut my hair and went down to a trade show and saw Cessna's fabrication exhibits... they were awesome. They even had a scale-sized mockup of one of Cessna's popular new crafts. I came to learn that the exhibit company, not Cessna, had fabricated the plane, much to my impress.

Anyways, I hope you all had a safe holiday and I'm sure you'll be hearing from me soon!

Custom Exhibit Builders get the vote out!

What do you get when you mix politics with an exhibit company? A voting experience that's much more exciting and memorable! Whether you're red or blue or somewhere in between, wouldn't custom exhibit builders do a much better job of making those little private booths where you cast your ballot? Let's do it!

Maybe we should take a vote... :-)
