you just have to tap it in.....tap it in....

you just have to tap it in.....tap it in.... and "It's all in the hips. It's a-l-l in the hips."

Well, we know that any sport has it’s dangers, but alligators?  That is a bit much for me.

BEAUFORT, S.C. — Officials say an alligator bit off part of a golfer’s arm as he leaned over to pick up his ball at a private South Carolina course.

The man, who is in his 70s, was retrieving his ball from a pond when the 10-foot alligator bit him at Ocean Creek Golf Course in Beaufort County. The gator pulled the golfer into the pond and ripped off his arm in the struggle. His golf partners were able to free him.

Wildlife workers killed the alligator and retrieved the arm in the hopes it might be reattached.

The man has not been identified. He was being treated at the Medical University of South Carolina, but officials there would not release any information about him.

A call to the golf course was not immediately returned.

My buddy made the comment, isn’t his name Chubbs Peterson?  I laughed out loud reading it and the students wondered what made their teacher laugh spontaneously…

At least practice responsible stewardship.....use th eanimal for something useful, like some kicks...

This is when you know you have loot and travel in style

That is what the alligator would be if I was involved….
