was left with her hand right next to the grenade in the guy's chest so he wouldn't bleed out. So as the episode goes, they decide to have her pull the grenade out and hand it off to the bomb squad guy.
So the guy who was the bomb squad guy, Kyle Chandler, who you also know as the main character in that CBS show Early Edition, carries out the explosive to the hallway.
So I'm thinking he's the new squeeze for the main character of Grey's Anatomy Merideth unless they kill him off in that episode. So I was thinking, if they do that camera angle where he's at the end of the hallway, and she's just watching him from a distance he's a dead man.
Here's how it went:
- Merideth pulls out the grendade
- Bomb squad takes the grenade, "Good job, you did good today."
- Bomb squad guy walks out into the hallway with the grenade
- Merideth walks out to see him go off into the hallway
- Camera pans out....
BOOOOMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Now that my friends is great TV!!!!

It's sort of an obsession. My wife remarks that I don't have much of a wardrobe and it consists of just one brand of clothing. OK, for the most part she's right. But you stick to your brand as any golfer worth his salt will tell you. Although, maybe I should take a hint from coworkers who ask me if my tour sponsor gives me all shirts I wear to the office:
Yep, I'm a Callaway golfer. My philosophy is that if you have the best equipment, you cannot make any excuses about your score. It's all just you at that point. Every club I use is Callaway. I have X-14 irons, Forged wedges, Big Bertha 4 and 7 wood, a Callaway Tour Blue TT2 putter, and the newest club in my arsenal is a 9.5 degree ERC Fusion driver with a stiff Aldila shaft. And is it ever sweet!!!! It makes a thud when it hits the ball, but the ball just flies off of the face.
The good news is, I'm getting better. I was a 34 handicap at the start of last year and at the end of the season I dropped to 25. I was shooting in the low 40's per 9 holes off the blue tees, so this year my goal is to stay in the 80's and get the handicap below 20. It shouldn't be too hard, because there's a few high scores that will fall off my handicap so it should shoot down pretty quick. I think I finally have found my swing, but I'll hold judgment on that until mid season. I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
On another note, I was watching the FBR Open yesterday and saw something I have never seen before. This guy who's no bigger than me, hit a ball 354 yards dead straight. Now this may not seem all that impressive to people who do not golf, but those of us who do just sit there with our jaws wide open in awe, like this:
It's unreal. It's not natural. It's one of the coolest things you've ever seen though!
The guy's name is J.B. Holmes. He's brand new on the PGA tour. He's only 23. His second shot on a par 4 or par 5 is usually with a sand wedge. He drove a par 4 yesterday that was 302 yards with a 3 wood. I wouldn't have believed it if I weren't watching it.
And a guy like him gives golfers like me hope. Because his swing isn't the most pretty swing you've ever seen, not like Tiger's or Fred Couples or Stuart Appleby, and he takes the club just 1/2 to 3/4 back. But when he rotates through the ball, you've never seen a ball fly so far and so straight. Look out Tiger, there's a new guy in town and his name is J.B.

I'm actually surprised that people cannot do better with my name. It's really not that hard you know. Here's the secret to Japanese pronunciation, take everything in two or three letters. So if you were trying to pronounce Kawasaki, break it by every two letters, Ka-wa-sa-ki, then say each syllable individually and there you have it, instant Japanese. And if you had a name like Nishita, you would break it to Ni-shi-ta. Pretty much all Japanese syllables end in a vowel or are a vowel. Get the idea?
