Teeing off with Tiger

Let's face it. Golf can be boring. In fact, golf could even scream "boring!" if you didn't have to be so darn quiet all the time. At least that's what I always thought until I began working as a standard bearer in the Presidents Cup four years ago. Held right up Route 29 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville (yes, you NOVA citizens, that is why it took you an extra hour to get home last weekend), the Presidents Cup pits two 12-man teams against each other in a U.S.-versus-the-World competition.

Car-less and key-less means schmoozing in shotgun

In high school, I was the proud primary driver of a 1985 Oldsmobile station wagon. Naturally, the automobile opened me up to the good-natured teasing of friends, but such ribbing didn't bother me at all (well, it didn't bother me too much). Whenever someone would make a comment about my rapidly aging motor vehicle, I would shrug and say, "At least I have a car." Not only did I have a car at my disposal at all times, but I had a car that could haul me and seven friends wherever we wanted to go.

Four who were not forgotten

As the leaves change and the middle of the fall semester draws near, it may occur to fourth-year students that there are only seven months left to reflect on their University memories before taking the final walk down the Lawn.
