This year I got off work at 5:30 and didn't get any sleep before the tournament. I have played this one 8 times, and have done better several times..ohwell.
The weather was probably the best I can remember, usually it is 1'+ of snow and much colder with purely icy tee-pads. Last year the Monster tees were so bad it was hard to stand on them without moving let alone throw. I don't know the numbers..looked like a lot of food and at least 50 players, which is good.
I shot a -2 followed by a -3 on the original course shorts tees for 18 holes. I wasn't able to stick around for the awards because I had to run to work literally.
Check out the photos tagged for ice bowl, I uploaded about 50+ today and several 5 second movies.
