Watch the Twins in the first game in their new ballpark today on ESPN. I love that this counts as Golf coverage for me. Think my last Golf coverage was also about iced tea+lemonade. I probably shouldn't have that category. Here's some actual Golf coverage - isn't there enough money in Golf to spray some self-tan on Phil Mickelson's forehead before the Green Jacket ceremony? Kind of a big moment for such a major distraction.
I knew there was some exciting stuff going on inside the RV's at Daytona. Here's something I just learned: any/all luxury coach owners can become members of the Featherlite VIP Club (even if your make is not Featherlite).
Why is that cool? Because Featherlite hosts various events for the members - including NASCAR, Kentucky Derby, and U.S. Open Golf rallies - and we're not talking day-old burgers in a steamer. VIP Club membership is Free; there are fees to attend the organized events. Contact the Featherlite VIP Club: 888-826-8273 or [email protected].
Here's an example of the pampering: Private Chef Caterer Chef Albrich provides several days worth of meals for the VIP Club at the Daytona 500 (and at Homestead). Everything - shrimp, crab, sushi, filet of pork, filet of beef, fish, truffle mashed potatoes, mango and guava cheesecakes - is made on premise. As the Chef Albrich people say, this is tailgating at its finest.
Specializing in events such as multi-day motor sports races, bike rallies and golf tournaments, Miami-based Chef Albrich knows how to serve up VIP fare. Want to know more? Contact: [email protected] or 305-817-2955.

Many people know that an Arnold Palmer is one of my favorite drinks. And now it's available in bottle or can thanks to the good (read: high fructose corn syrup loving) people of Arizona Iced Tea. According to them, this "tee" is a beverage Arnold "enjoys frequently."
For the sake of Scoreboard Gourmet, I overlooked the HFCS and gave Arnold Palmer a try. And for the people who have been asking for pictures of me, here's one of me actually consuming the ultra-sweet, chemical-tasting tea-lemonade. I just had a haircut and I'm standing in Mercer County Waterfront Park, home of the Trenton Thunder.
