So, in Torrey Pines here in San Diego, the big golf tournament is attracting lots of attention. Mostly because, it's the first time Tiger Woods hasn't played in it. And also, Phil Mickelson, considered the best golfer behind Tiger, is a local San Diego boy.
There have been pictures of him signing hats, shirts, photos, and golf balls.
But this story caught my eye.
They were going to auction off a windbreaker autographed by Tiger Woods. The starting bid was $2,000. Nobody bid, and someone yelled out "How about two dollars?!"
One San Diegan paid the two grand, with his wife telling him "You're stupid!" (ah, this is something all of us autograph collectors who have made a purchase at some point in our lives, have heard from friends and family).
The guy making the purchase did it because it went to a youth charity. He then gave the jacket to a kid as well.
I'm hoping his wife can appreciate what a wonderful man she married.
