The World's Craziest Golf Course Ever?

Image Source

There's a ground-breaking new golf course under construction at Mission Hills in China. It combines elements of miniature golf, great wonders of the world, and a fantasy-world setting only experienced in video games. Several of the holes announced are one with a Great Wall of China theme, a par-3 with the green situated inside a gigantic noodle-bowl, as well as one with a Bird's Nest Stadium theme, in which the green is concave. It looks both difficult and exciting!

Too bad Steve's a little too loud, so you can't hear them together when they're playing together late in the song. His style is a little "out there" for La Grange too. Still awesome, however.

For Dale Murphy, From Your Son

Artist: Tyson Murphy / Image Source

The image above is a cartoon drawn by one Tyson Murphy for his father Dale Murphy. Dale was one of my all-time favorite players growing up as a baseball-loving kiddo. This is a great story I was turned onto at Deadspin. The article is written by Deadspin's Barry Petchesky:

It's Dale Murphy's 15th and final year on the Hall of Fame ballot, and while his chances of getting in are slim, his children are doing their part to honor him the way they remember him. Tyson Murphy isn't a sports fan—he's an artist at Blizzard Entertainment, the video game developer responsible for the World of Warcraft games. But he drew his dad this doodle for Christmas, as a tribute to the man whose non-baseball exploits meant more to him.. (cont'd)
