Here’s a game some of used to play in the pressbox … only we did it at the end of non-playoff seasons, not before a season.
There are 58 days remaining until opening night (Oct. 9 in Buffalo). Each day try to come up with a well-known athlete who wore the same number as the number of days left. It gets much better the closer we get, obviously, because there are more well-known athletes with low numbers.
So I’ll open it up with No. 58, Carl Banks of the Super Bowl champion Giants. Got any other 58s?
Each morning until Game 1 in Buffalo (which will be day zero) youse can feel free to throw a name out there to go with the corresponding number.
And if you don’t feel like playing, just go back to your line combinations or gibberish or jibberish.
Got a big, big, big meeting with Mr. Titleist at Centennial GC in Carmel today. Supposed to be like 79 degrees. Maybe some rain. Who cares about rain? Who cares about Friday the 13th?
Playing with my dad. He’s going on 77 and is still a 9 or 10 handicap who plays every single day if there’s no snow on the ground. The interesting thing in my family is that on my mom’s side, all the men kept all of their hair for their entire lives but couldn’t play golf. On my father’s side, all the men went bald but could play the hell out of golf. So which genes did I get? Right, no hair, no golf skill.
