If you don't know much about St Louis, let me just say there is a lot of money here. Money that makes you think "wow, people really live this way??" Now let me tell you that I don't live in St Louis. I live in the burbs, specifically the burbs in Illinois. Other side of the river. Wrong side of the tracks. You get the picture, right? Last fall in St Louis there was the big PGA tournament at Bellerive Country Club sponsored by BMW. Tiger wasn't there (injured his knee) but Phil Mickelson was along with Villegas and Furyk, and some others. Anyway, it was a whole big shebang.
Last week my little community had a golf tournament: the NPG (not PGA) Hooters (yep, Hooters) Sunset Hills Classic. Not sure who all was there, but there were some golfers:
There was a beer cart:
There was a blow up welcome arch:
And the coup de gras...
Oh yeah. I think they add a little class to da hood, a little je ne sais pas. I can't describe to you the feeling of delight while driving home and finding green mesh fencing and 3 new Johnny-On-The-Spots staring out at you. Classy? You bet. I'm just wondering if the people in Ladue (where Bellerive CC is actually located, the ritzy suburb of St Lou), if those people had to deal with port-a-potties outside their door. I'm just disappointed we didn't get the big Hooters and beer bottle blow ups like the other side of the golf course got.
Well, you know the mid-west. We are a little slower on picking up the latest fashion trend, not quite up to speed on the coolest new technology -- I still cant get U-verse, but by golly I got port-a-potties.
I thought I'd ask my new buddy here about how he stays current with all the new rages. He didn't have much to say...
