Feeling guilty...or not
Until today, I hadn't missed an intrasquad game in nearly a year, so I'm feeling like I let everyone down by taking a half day off to play golf. Okay, you just caught me in my first lie, but at least I did come back to the training camp to make sure I didn't miss any big news.
If you're keeping score at home, I shot a 95 with one mulligan on a fairly easy course in Pompano Beach. Drove the ball well. Made good contact on the middle irons. No short game whatsoever. If I was that iceberg that sank the Titanic, I would have come up eight inches short and a lot of people would have gone on to have a very nice cruise.
Can't wait for tomorrow, and it's not because I get better-looking every day. The Orioles play two games against the St. Louis Cardinals, one in the afternoon at Fort Lauderdale Stadium and one at 7 p.m. in Jupiter, Fla. Dave Trembley and the major league staff will oversee both games.
