Sunday Session

I was in Vegas this weekend, for about the 65th time this year, to do some work and attend the annual Zappos Vendor Appreciation Party. For those that are unfamiliar, Zappos is a huge online retailer that carries a shit pile of stuff. They have incredible customer service and stock items that can be very hard to find. They also treat their vendors like gold, and once a year throw a party to show their appreciation. The least we can do is attend, right?

To kick it off our shoe buyer over at Z-Boys, Jim Copeland, decided to take us golfing yesterday. We played a round of 18 and finished sun baked and beer-bathed around 1:30PM. Tanner and I were just getting warmed up so him and I decided to continue for another 9, which then turned into another 18. By 6:30PM we had played 36 holes and I looked like a raccoon in a tanning bed commercial. It was a great day to say the least. I haven't played in over a year and my goal was to shoot under a 100, I shot a 99 on our first round. And on the last 9 I beat Tanner by 4 strokes which dug the knife in even harder. See below for the visuals:

We played a really nice course at the bottom of the Red Rock canyon. There seemed to be an abundance of foreclosed homes on the course. At least they looked that way. Don't know how stoked I would be to hit up the slide?

These go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly

If I am correct in my memory, this is the infamous hole 14. First round I had a fiery slice on my drive that landed me on the back patio of a home owner that was too short on cash to buy a fence. My Philosophy: Play it as it lies.

The Golf Gods called in a favor and I wound up in the same damn spot on round two. I sure made it look good though. 6 iron off the concrete, killed it!

After 36 holes, a 20 minute power nap, and a salty shower we arrived at the Palms to blow it out!

They had penguins in the pool upstairs. Kind of Ironic considering it was a mild 101 degrees while the moon was out.

I cant believe this was a year ago already. Crazy
