What's a Fields?

It's nice to back a winner once in a while. Especially when you're a fan of Philadelphia sports teams - or a Democrat.
So there I was, (geeky fan) talking to my TV set - "Don't get down, Paula, there's still 3 holes left." after she parred the 15th and, still a shot down with 3 to play it looked like Jeong Jang was going to win. Screw you, JJ.
Paula birdied the last three holes to win the tournament and make being in Hawaii in February even better than it seemed.
It's especially nice to be a fan of a winner when I had to (didn't have to) listen to a radio debate on WIP between most of their air staff over what is wrong with the Eagles, our football team. Lucky for them, overnight host Big Daddy Graham and morning host Angelo Cataldi were absent, because other than the screaming and over-talking, there wasn't much to listen to. The station and their web site wants us to vote on who was the "winner" in the debate. The real winner was Chickie's and Pete's, who hosted the event. It's a local powerhouse sports bar and they've correctly figured out that the best way to capitalize on the passion of the local sports fans is to suck as much money from them as possible and make the franchise a household word. Nice going, Pete.
By the way, it appears that The Fields Corportation makes video games, so it's no wonder that I don't know who they are. And Pachinko machines. Now, somebody needs to tell me what Pachinko is.
Meanwhile, it's February and I'm jonesing for June, when the girls will be at Bulle Rock and I'll get to spend the better part of a week watching my favorite athletes ply their craft on one of the great golf courses in America that's only an hour from my home. It's the McDonald's LPGA Championship. If you want to join me, I'll be there all week.
I'm such a geek.
Congratulations, Paula.
Now, I'll waste a good Haiku in February that I should save for June:
I am such a geek.
The girls are in Maryland.
I'll be there all week.

I knew I missed Golf on TV because it made me warm. Now I remember that I missed Paula too

What really sucks is that Versus shares Hi-def channel 207 with the Golf Channel, so they give us Thursday and Friday, then show Versus on the weekend, where we have to slum over on regular-def channel 57.

What am I paying for?
