"Ha! Oh, dear. You noticed," said Bea. "Yeah, I guess I've really been into them the last month or so. Every fan of music goes through a Skynyrd phase."
Bea performed jaunty organ versions of "Simple Man" and "Gimme Three Steps" during the Dodgers' last home game. She also played an 11-minute version of "Free Bird" that went through most of the 4th inning until umpires stopped play and asked manager Don Mattingly to contact her booth and request that she stop.
Bea says she can't believe it took her this long to "discover" the band, but she says "Lynyrd Skynyrd is probably my favorite now."
Longtime Dodgers fans say this isn't the first time Bea has been influenced by another artist. She also has reportedly gone through Beatles and Bob Marley phases.
Description: He doesn't so much enjoy golf as he enjoys having an environment where it's acceptable to complain about women and crudely talk about sex. Leave a putt short or hit a weak drive? "Come on, Sally! You hit that like a pussy! Nice skirt! Does your husband play?" Hit a putt past the hole or crush a drive? "Whoa! Someone's wife isn't giving him enough of the poontang! Look at all that extra aggression!" Whatever The Misogynist shoots in a round, put him down for double that number on uses of the terms "old lady" and "ole' ball and chain."
Fun Fact: The Misogynist has been banned from 12 courses for trying to feel up the beverage cart girl.
The Rules Official
Description: He has read the USGA rules book two dozen times and has a copy of it in his golf bag that he will display at a moment's notice. You better not be trying to move your ball out of that mud patch in the middle of the fairway because, according to Rule 13-b(1.4), that particular mud patch, due to its lack of distinguishing marks, does not fit the criteria for "ground under repair." I mean, sure, if you want to play that way, fine. But if this was the US Open you'd be getting a significant penalty.
Fun Fact: The Rules Official received a severe beating in 8th grade after reminding his math teacher that she had forgotten to assign homework.

Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle for Yoo-Hoo
No doubt Yogi Berra had a great Yogiism about his teammate fellating a kids' drink.
Augusta National: A challenging run of holes on the back 9 holes 11, 12 and 13 made famous on television by picturesque azaleas and dogwoods in bloom.
Your Course: That par-4 on the back-corner of the course that has a sharp dog-leg because the course designer ran out of real estate when the hole butted up against the interstate. On the other side of the highway there is a pentecostal church with a big, neon JESUS SAVES sign that you hear humming on the green (when there isn't heavy truck traffic that drowns it out).
Augusta National: A Loblolly Pine some 210 yards off the 17th tee that President Eisenhower, an Augusta member, frequently hit with his drives.
Your Course: The dead pine some 10 yards off the 7th tee which your buddy Dave Eisenhower always takes a leak on.
It's hard to find an honest man.
