But it was FUN to watch! Seriously!! People were cheering wildly for the US (and even while one guy was teeing off) instead of the traditional, very quiet, laid back, be polite type of golf. If a guy on the European team hit it in the water, wild cheers! The Englishman chokes on a putt: wild cheers! The Spaniard hits it into the trees: wild cheers! Just a hoot to watch.Even LL wanted to know what was going on and asked about updates.
On Saturday we headed to Morris, Illinois for their Corn Festival. Oddly, it's actually not easy to find corn there! There was only one stand with corn and then one with kettle corn, which only kind of counts. Lots of beer though and pork! I had two pulled pork sandwiches and part of LL's pork chop on a stick. Delicious.
The folks with whom we tailgate and who sit next to us at the Bears games live in Morris, so we decided to stop in and see them as part of the trip. Doug Sr. has a great house!
Here's the entrance to his finished basement.
And here's the other wall. Very cool!! His house is huge and awesome and includes a ginourmous back deck with a swimming pool and everything. It's pretty great!!
LL had to work Sunday morning and then headed out to have lunch with her friend Nicole in Naperville. Meanwhile, I watched some football, some Ryder Cup, dug a trench in the back yard, got on the roof and cleaned out the gutters and hit the Oktoberfest at my church. Another busy weekend!!! Tomorrow night: Bears/Cowboys!!
