CHML Golf Tourney

It’s true even a bad day of golf is better than a good day of work.

I proved that yesterday when I carved a mean furrow and lost a bucket of balls at Flamborough Hills Golf club with the CHML Children’s Fund Golf Tourney.

This is always a great event and a chance to meet with listeners and clients who support this amazing charity.

Thanks to all of our sponsors including Pioneer and US Steel who stepped up this year and helped make the tourney a success.

And especially thanks to Gary Molinaro from Solaris Dental Solutions, partner Frank the shank  and associate Mark the shark who bought my foursome.

Although after seeing me with a club in my hand, they were glad they brought a ringer.

Hard to believe these guys were the winning bidders two years in a row.

Clearly it wasn’t for my play.

I blamed it on the ribs.

What you’ve never had ribs while playing golf?

When the cursing and trash talking got out of hand we had to remind ourselves, it’s for the kids!

Be sure to grab some friends and join us next year.

I’m Scott Thompson.

New stadium lottery; guess when it will be finished and win

It does not look like the new Pan Am Stadium will be ready for the Ticats August schedule. No surprises here!

We kind of figuired that out when they announced it wouldn't be ready for the home opener in July.

Its too bad its left up to the fans to try and figuire out. 

You'd think they could nail down a more concrete opening date, it ain't rocket science. 

It would be nice if those involved would just call it like it is and stop pretending it will be ready when it won't, or be something that it is not.

You know, under promise and over deliver.

To try and make good of a continually bad situation I suggest we start a pool.‚Äč A lottery.

Guess the date the new stadium will be finished, win a prize.

Just like your typical Superbowl pool, just pick a square and throw down your $10.

It could even be used as a fund raiser to help pay for the place, or maybe get us some upgraded carpet.

One thing is for sure, it will make the wait a lot more fun.

I'm Scott Thompson.

One more bike concern...

One more bike concern.

There are few debates in this city that come with the energy of a good discussion on the bicycle.

Do a commentary or blog, newspaper column, radio show, whatever, on the bike experience in Hamilton; you are bound to get some participants.

However, most of the time it will be a discussion centred on the bike vs. the automobile.

You know the banter, bike lanes vs vehicle lanes, lack of respect for one another, rules of the road, and general distain for each other.

The best thing about this latest debate is there isn’t a car to be seen near the discussion. Not even parked.

This ruckus is about e-bikes and do they have the same rights as any standard bicycle.

In other words, are e-bikes welcome on city walkways, trails and bike paths and lanes.

If complaints and traffic to the CHML poll question of the day are any indication the answer is NO!

Oddly enough the complaints cyclists and walkers had with the e-bikes are very similar to the complaints drivers had with cyclists.

They both think they own the road, and never obey the rules.

Sound familiar?

I’m Scott Thompson.

Wednesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
Should we start a lottery pool to bet on when the stadium will be finished?
