British Open at St. Andrews this Weekend!

Sassenachs, GET YOUR ARSES over to the GOLF CHANNEL because the British Open is being held at St. Andrews this weekend and they are already giving plenty of interviews and video of Scotland.
I was just listening to Jimmy Reid - a caddy from Scotland - and his accent was like heaven to my ears.

The British Open rotates among five courses... so it is played at St. Andrews every five years. I was lucky enough to be there in 2000 and have every intention of getting back there again.

Long time reader, first time commentator...If you have a public service channel in your area, this week's Nature went to the Isle of Mull with the cameraman, who is a native of the area. Bloody amazing! His accent and the fantastic shots of the island were breathtaking!

We got to St. Andrews last year, as well, and it is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I want to send my kids to college there just so I can go visit. I do find it amusing that when The Open is in Scotland, they call it "The Open" instead of "The British Open" - they just cannot embrace the Sassenachs, no matter what the situation.
