Every year, San Diego is home to many different exciting sporting events. From the Padres (gag me) to the Chargers (gag themselves) to Del Mar races there is always big time sports going on. One of my favorite events in SD every year is the golf tournament at Torrey Pines. 2 years ago we went to the US Open on Saturday, Sunday and the playoff on Monday. That was probably the most exciting 3 days of sporting excitement I've been too. Especially on Monday when Tiger defeated Rocco in 19 holes, such high drama.
This year, the tourney is called the Farmer's Insurance Open (used to be the Buick). Tiger is not playing because he's in rehab. There are lots of good players this week, but not like in before. I've going to this event 3 times (all three times Tiger won), but we didn't go this year. We did however get to see the blimp. This is a blimp like I've never seen. It is the Farmer's Insurance blimp and it is about 3 times the size of the Goodyear or MetLife blimp. On top of all this it's white with very little writing on the side. It's like a Beluga whale swimming through the clouds above Torrey Pines. The whale in the sky also has a phone number listed, offering people the opportunity to ride in the blimp. That would be fun.
