Olympic news no suprise

Thursday, August 13, 2009

CHASKA, Minn. – Good news for golf fans.

The sport has been recommended for inclusion in the 2016 Summer Games?

Heck no. That’s major-league ho-hum material, a news bulletin that ranks up there with Tiger Woods wins. It’s been a poorly-kept secret in recent weeks that rugby and golf were the sports scheduled to get the nod. They did. Yawn.

So, what’s the good news for golf fans?

Well, officials at The Golf Channel had the good sense to only spend a few minutes on this Olympic news and return to its broadcast of “Caddyshack.”
