Wrap it up

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is getting through the always treacherous Monday. This weekend was filled with big sporting events, that hopefully you at least peeked at. The PGA (Professional Golfers Association) Tour took place in San Diego, and finished up yesterday. The Winter X Games were taking place all weekend in Aspen, CO and the Pro Bowl took place on Sunday, in Hawaii. Here's a little wrap up on the weekends events, in case you missed out or blacked out.

Golf is a sport that I just can't do. Miniature golf is cool, but in my opinion, there is nothing appealing about the real deal. Sure, the golf carts are fun and the courses can be gorgeous, but it's just not my cup of tea. Thanks to some of my awesome friends, I was forced to watch the end of the PGA Tour yesterday. After truly "trying" to enjoy watching, my feelings still result with a dislike for the sport (sorry Dad!). But in case you're a golfer, here are some highlights from this weekends tour.  

Bubba Watson was the big winner this weekend - this was his 2nd PGA Tour win.

Winter X Games
As I mentioned in this post, the 15th Winter X Games were in full gear this weekend. 
Instead of me boring you with a list of winners, here is a pretty cool video with some of the craziest tricks, biggest wipeouts and best moments from the games.

Pro Bowl
The NFC spanked the AFC for the majority of the game, with a final score of 55-41 - NFC taking the win. The game was pretty standard for a Pro Bowl, with one of the best highlights being the streakers who provided the players with a few good laughs.

In case you were too busy to catch the game, check out these highlights. 

Enjoy the rest of your week. Only 4 days til Friday!


  1. Chels, if you actually go watch the Pros play at a tournament, it's really fun. For as long as I can remember I was of the thought, "Golf is the most boring sport there is"......then I went to what used to be "The Buick", and I loved it.

    By the way, what's with the HS Senior from La Jolla Country Day that beat Tiger by two stokes??? Pretty incredible.

  2. Lisa - thats what all my guy friends told me.. that I need to go to to a pro tournament. It's not on my Bucket List. Maybe then I'll appreciate the sport. MAYBE :)

  3. I agree with Lisa, being there is a different story! Plus its infested with beautiful men (single ladies :)) great catches at these events
