Steve Williams says, "My last caddie job will be caddying for Tiger"

Tiger Wood's caddy Steve Williams continued to talk from New Zealand on Saturday.  In an interview with Sunday News in New Zealand, Williams continued to say he had no knowledge of what Tiger was doing off the golf course.

Williams also blasted ESPN's Rick Reilly for saying Tiger should clean house and for saying Williams lied about knowing nothing of Tiger's affairs.  While it might be hard to believe Tiger's caddy, who can spot someone taking a picture with a camera 4 holes over on a golf course, that he didn't know what was going on, Williams seems truthful in this interview and hates that his family is getting dragged into it.

Williams says he has talked to Tiger and Tiger admitted he has "a problem".

Williams says when he is not caddying for Tiger he is at home in New Zealand.  He says he will remain close friends with Tiger, but caddying for Tiger will be his last caddie job, and he'll be ready to tote the bag around again when Tiger's ready.  He wishes the best for Tiger and Elin, and a break right now will help them both.

Pool Checklist: Swimsuit, Towel, Tanning Lotion ... Kindle

A little over a month ago, I brought you the news that The Four Seasons in Washington D.C. was providing Kindles for guest to use while enjoying a fine breakfast at the hotel.  The Kindles were loaded with newspapers to browse from every major city, and guests have been quite appreciative of the gesture.

Today, news that another Four Seasons property, this one in Miami, or Brickell to be exact are offering Kindles for guests to use at poolside.  Yes, work on your tan, cool off in the water and enjoy the cutting edge technology of a Kindle.  The Kindles are preloaded with bestsellers and classics, so guests can't download their own selections, but what is offered will be a wide variety of books for all tastes.

This month's selections include:  "Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin" and "Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy."  Not sure if the choices will change monthly, but I'll offer some suggestions on future books to include:  How about "Beach Road" by James Patterson, "Swimming to Catalina" by Stuart Woods, or look better at the pool by reading "The South Beach Diet Cookbook" by Arthur Agatson.  All on your poolside Kindle, while sipping on your Fizzler on the Roof.  Pass the lotion please.

Colt McCoy racking up awards, Heisman next?

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy almost ended up in the outhouse with his near blunder in the Big XII Championship Game, but he is alive and well in the penthouse and winning multiple college post season awards.

So far, McCoy has taken the Maxwell Award for the best all around player, the Walter Camp player of the year award, and the Davey O'Brien Award for the best college quarterback.

We'll find out Saturday how he fares in the Heisman race.  I would have to say he is the favorite at this point.  Being a quarterback on an undefeated Texas team, and with his previous body of work, he should be holing up the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night.

Some Free Christmas Music to end the Week

 

Amazon has "Silent Night" by House of Heroes for free MP3 download

 The reviews for this rendition of "Silent Night" are favorable:

This song is worth downloading. It is a pleasant rendition of a true Christmas song.

Great voices, nice blend of instruments. A really nice take on one of the most recognized holiday classics. Thanks Amazon.

I love this Christmas classic, and I like this arrangement.
