Local Man Aims to Win Millions
Ok, he's from Roanoke, which isn't really local, except in the sense that Virginia Tech plays in Blacksburg and is "local," so whatever.
Anyhow, this guy has to go to Vegas and try to make a 40-foot putt for $one million$. His argument is that any 30-handicapper will get lucky and hit a 40-foot putt once in a while. My argument is that I've never hit a 40-foot putt in my life, and so these circumstances would not likely be the necessary spur to change that luck:
"There's supposed to be all kinds of people yelling and screaming," Gray said. "There will be showgirls, elephants, chimps. They even had like a dancing girl and a midget on their Web site, and the midget is asking you, 'Do you think you've got the guts to take on Las Vegas?' They'll probably go in one of the bars and empty out a couple hundred drunks to come out there and holler and yell at me. Y'all come on! That's all I got to say!
"Now I think about it, I'll probably need a couple of drinks before I go out there ... I'll take a shot [of liquor] or drink a couple beers or something. I'm going to come out waving and high-fiving everybody and low-fiving the chimpanzees."
Plus he has to use their putter. Plus John Kruk is going to be there.
Presumably to offer advice on how to make that ball disappear.
[Edit: B's right, that was distasteful. I retract it. Apologies.]
