The Viking Classic Is a Cushy Snoozefest
By Stephanie Wei under General

For the second day in a row, play was postponed at the Viking Classic in Madison, Mississippi, and the first round won’t begin until Sunday (hopefully). The area has been hit with bad rainstorms for the past month, resulting in a water-clogged, unplayable golf course.

Fortunately, the nearest casinos are within 40 miles to provide good, wholesome entertainment for slot-machine loving golfers. By the way, John Daly is in the field this week.

As for me, I won’t be watching much…or any…golf this weekend. Instead, I’m heading out to Philly for Game 3 of the World Series. It will be my first trip to “Scumbag Central” (not my words), aka Citizens Bank Park. Please pray I won’t be sloshed by cups overflowing with beer. Go Phillies.
