Another Reason to Root for Rickie

Rickie Fowler was going to wear blue yesterday for the opening round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive.  But he changed to yellow after hearing of the death of his friend and fellow PGA pro Jarrod Lyle.  Australian Jason Day also sported yellow in honor of his Aussie buddy.  Lyle died Wednesday after his third battle with leukemia.  He was 36. In the picture, Fowler is hitting his tee shot at the 7th hole yesterday.

I was going to root for Rickie anyway.  I'd love to see him win his first major golf tournament here in St Louis, AND he's a Cardinals' fan!  If you can't make it to see Fowler in person, head to the 19th Hole Patio Party at the Creve Coeur Buffalo Wild Wings.  Lenny Frisch plays today from 4 to 7 followed by My Friend Mike 8 to 11pm.  Saturday the Whiskey Racoons perform from 1 to 3 followed by Odd's Lane Duo 4 to 7pm.  Then, it's the Charles Glen Group from 8 to 11pm.  You've probably heard Glen sing a magnificent National Anthem at a St Louis Blues game.  Sunday at Creve Coeur BWW Johnny Chase sings at 1 with Musicology 5 to 8pm.
