Big Crowd

I just read where there were more than 70,000 people yesterday at the FBR Open. That would make it the second largest sporting event I have ever attended. Back in the late ‘60s-early ‘70s, I went to a few Army-Navy football games at JFK stadium in Philadelphia. There were in excess of 100,000 people at those games.

Didn’t seem like there were that many people there, but the tourney is way spread out. Hats off to those folks who handle logistics.

BTW, the reason I have no pictures from The Open is that cameras were not allowed. Plenty of folks snuck 'em in anyway plus cell phones (which also were banished). Forgot to mention, we did get to meet Camelback Jack, a local deejay from KOOL-FM; he's a family fave.
