WGC-Bridgestone: TV Schedule | Tee Times
Dyer just emailed me to say his story has posted. This guy is late to everything! I told him to find an intern to explain what Twitter is.
Hahah, okay, I've dropped the mic. MT @ShoshEAK only thing lamer is national writer who wrote quote whine on Tw about local article on quote
That's cuz by the time he finishes his pre-shot routine a new issue is out. "@stephenfastenau The bigger story is Furyk not reading SI.
Jack Nicklaus on Firestone: "It seems like you're playing the same [hole] over and over, and so you have to be careful not to fall asleep."

I'm all for a little muckraking. But is my 2013 opinion the biggest story happening *right now* in Akron? The provincialism is hysterical.
I get it, he wants to defend his hometown event. But I'm hardly the only one who doesn't like Firestone. Nicklaus: "It's a boring course."
This guy Dyer is a celebrated point-misser. The fact that he's a professional reporter but not on Twitter tells you how out of touch he is.
The Akron Beacon Journal's Bob Dyer is quite a newshound. He wrote a front-page story about a quote of mine from Dec: bit.ly/1n6DOw6

Nicklaus on Firestone: "It's a boring course. You can fall asleep on it..." RT @bad_caddy every year you bash Firestone. give it a rest.
.@ShaneRyanHere Homey ambushed me on the phone yesterday. I explained my beef is more about WGCs that never see the world than Akron per se.
