Yet, every Tet is a new beginning and, for many - except those who prefer to live in the past and continue to grumble about how good it was "back in the day" we look forward to it with hope and excitement.
The European Tour did something so blasphemous that I simply cannot believe it. This earth-shattering news will undoubtedly cause ripples all the way to the farthest end of our galaxy and maybe even beyond.
Well, the new year is truly underway and, as usual, I played my first round of golf to see how this year will go. Normally, if I play well I know the year will be excellent. If I play poorly, I know its gonna be a nightmare.
Sometimes this gets really confusing. I still don't really know how old I am. In Viet Nam I am 58, but in the US I'm 57. I wish there was a place they deducted years after you reach 50, so I'd be 42 now and a lot happier.
I would like to say that I am still not "Teed Off" and that my general well-being and happy mood continues, but I am starting to get that "feeling" again where ripping someone's head off and kicking it down the street seems the best solution to any problem.
Well, the US$1.5 million Asian Tour Ho Tram Open is over, but the memories of an amazing week will last for a very long time thanks to the heroics of Sergio Garcia who pulled off an amazing win after two sudden death playoff holes against Himmat Rai.
I would not go so far as to say I am "happy", because that would be too much of a shock to my system, but for the moment, I am content. Hmm, it's an interesting feeling.
It seems to be a quiet week as I haven't seen one sensational story about Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or even John Daly. Talk about boring!
Naturally, I simply HAD to read it because there are just so many horrible experiences out there that to make a claim such as that is questionable.
