Golfer Skips Ball Across Pond and Gets Hole in One

By |2020-11-11T09:54:44-06:00November 11th, 2020|

The Masters golf tournament officially starts tomorrow (Thursday), but plenty of golfers have gathered to get things going. One golfer -- Jon Rahm -- was at Augusta National yesterday (Tuesday) to take part in a long-time tradition of dropping a ball and trying to skip it across the pond at hole 16. Jon dropped the ball. Jon hit the ball with his 5-iron. The ball skipped across the pond… and went into the hole. No joke. He skipped a ball across a pond and hit a hole-in-one. It was just a practice shot, of course, but Rahm must be hoping his luck continues as [...]

RARITY: Rolling Stones With Jimmy Page Song Is Found

By |2020-07-23T09:46:24-05:00July 23rd, 2020|

Some are calling it the holy grail of rock and roll finds.  The Rolling Stones, with Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin guesting on lead guitar.  The Stones are releasing a multi-format, deluxe issue of their 1973 classic album, "Goats Head Soup" on September 4th.  They'll include this song, "Scarlet", as one of the ten bonus tracks.  Keith believes that he walked into a recording studio as Zeppelin was wrapping up.  The Stones were booked next, so Page stuck around.  Keith says the song was just a demo, but it came out good.
