Your Chance to Golf with Bob Knight
So far I’ve had a few ideas of how LBS could scrape together some funds and put them to good use. At first it was to buy one of Michael Vick’s pitbulls and make it the official site mascot. Then it was to pool together some money to buy the naming rights to Candlestick Park. Now, I think we need to get together and send one of the readers off for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
As part of his yearly fundraiser for cancer research, Lakewood Ranch resident Dick Vitale is offering the opportunity for a round of golf with Bob Knight and John Havlicek on May 16 at the Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club.
Bids for two threesomes will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Saturday for nine holes with each basketball legend.
Bids start at $10,000 and include 18 holes of golf in the morning, a pre-gala party and the third annual Dick Vitale Gala for Cancer Research that evening at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota.
In this case, Havlicek would be the name in the small print at the bottom of the marquee. He’s just like a side dish. Anyway, I don’t know about you guys, but I think 10 g’s is more than doable. And if we do come through on this, I want the real Bob Knight in the threesome. None of this Mr. TV Niceguy stuff. If we’re paying top dollar for Bob Knight, I want the whole f-bomb dropping, fellow-man berating, chair-throwing, sweater-wearing Knight. Anything less would be absolutely unacceptable.
