How do I know golf is surging right now without the news telling me numbers are up in the sport?
Because I walked into Costco last night, and there it was — the Kirkland wedge set 15 feet inside the door. The shine coming off those gap, sand and lob wedges will blind a customer. My experience got even better. Right next to the wedge set (pretty sure I saw $159.99 on the tag) was the $149.99 Kirkland putter. Next to the putter, the Kirkland golf balls. The Kirkland golf glove set was further back in the store. I don’t need Karen Rovell to bust out his dumb stats on a resurgence in the golf world. I can see it for myself at Costco. I know what will be under the trees across my suburban city — Kirkland golf supplies. Costco knows the trends. They know guys got the links itch this summer while everything was closed.
Another thing that caught my eye during last night’s Costco trip was a towel warmer next to the toilet they sell. A towel warmer? Not sure I understand the need for a towel warmer. Maybe one of you guys can walk me through the necessity of such an item. I can’t remember a time where I took a shower, got out, and thought ‘Damn, I could really go for a warm towel right now.’ The towel always seems to feel fine to me. Maybe it’s one of those things you need to experience before figuring out you need one.
• I don’t know how Bears fans watch the Bears on offense. I thought being a Bengals fan was torture. Nick Foles was 15 of 26 for 106 yards and an interception before getting injured. Cordarrelle Patterson had 12 carries for 30 yards. Woof.
• Holding March Madness in Indianapolis is a good call by the NCAA. It’s too bad that it’ll still be a COVID world, or I’d consider spending a month down there enjoying the atmosphere. I was there for the Final Four a few years ago, and let’s just say it’s a perfect Final Four city. It’s also a great Super Bowl city. The action is centralized downtown, so once you park there’s no need to think about driving. It’s perfect.
• There’s bad news if you had been waiting 17 years to see Zumanity in Las Vegas. Cirque du Soleil said Monday it’s closing the show, and it won’t be coming back even after the COVID era ends. Cirque announced in June it had filed for bankruptcy.
