1492-Suds were sipped on the Ocean blue

SUD HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Weekend was pretty solid. Suds were crushed, played some golf, scouted some bodies of water for ducks and watched some great football. Speaking of scouting bodies of water, Happy Columbus was only a short 516 years ago, Cristobal Columbus ran into the Bahamas while looking for a faster route to The Eastern World of India. Diseases carried to North America by Spanish explorers killed millions of the continent's original inhabitants, but the trip cut both ways: scientists say Christopher Columbus took syphilis back to Europe.

Poor Leif Eriksson who lived 400 years before Columbus, is thought to be the first European to discover the States. Think about how much better a Viking filled Norse parade would be in Manhattan!!!
