They should auction those pants on e-bay, it would raise a lot of money for some charity. I would start the bidding-I wonder how high the bid would go. Great Story!

Betty, that is a great idea. Then you'd have
the pants to go along with all those
'backside' stories you tell so well LOL

The columnist is just the messenger. Gord is a topical entity here in Toronto and he thought it would be of interest to folks who like Gord and golf I guess. And he expressed his opinion on the pretentiousness of the golf "wardrobe".

Gee, ya know, if he was wearing that pair of pants that he has on in one of the Sunday Concert pictures (you'll recognize them right away - real 60's ugly. The kind of stuff we thought looked really cool at the time... Anyway, any pants that ugly would fit right in on a golf course!

Kudos to Gord for showing up for the game in the attire that suits him best! I mean, can anyone really imagine him in golf clothes? I just can't picture it.

of paper and tin? (and mp3's ) lol

sorry, Dunford (i'll bet he's relieved by my error, lol) , it was Gary Lautens...and since this thread is dead nanyhow i'll go off topic further and tip my cap to him with a text paste:

"Throughout his 40 years in journalism, Gary believed that humour should be used primarily for kindly purposes to point out life's ironies and contradictions. He never used his humour cruelly, and was more likely to hold up his own foibles and embarrassments as a lesson for his readers. His column was used to express joy and gratitude for what mattered the most to him in life - family, friends and country"
