The Daly Planet’s a Hoot!

So I watched The Daly Planet yesterday evening, and…… Well……..Hmmmmmmmmmm? I’m not so sure if I’m hip to it or not. I have a feeling that it will grow on me though.

Episode Numero Uno focused on Big John heading up to our neighbor to the north, Canada. Niagara Falls to be more precise. You see, last August, The Lion, as he is dubbed, went on a promotional blitzkrieg in Canada’s number one tourist destination in order to drum up some big cheese dollars for his newest of business ventures, Thundering Waters Golf Club. The track was a collaboration between Daly and Canadian Golf Course architect Bo Danoff.

In order to bleed some pockets for his newest endeavor, The Lion staged a miraculous feat of man versus nature by trying to drive a golf ball across the mighty Niagara Falls chasm.

Twenty balls off a staged tee box were driven with Lions strength, but to no avail. The mighty J.D. had fallen short on all accounts. But he sure put on one hell of a show nonetheless.

In fact, the Hooters’ girls of Niagara Falls followed J.D. throughout the days’ activities to show their support for the Big Hitter. Yes in deed, these Wenches of Wings were dressed from head to toe in their voluptuous signature attire for the duration of the episode.

This media event was staged in early August of 2005. However, since then, John Daly has decided to no longer proceed with any further endorsement deals with the Hooters Empire at his wife’s request.

To summarize the episode, Daly filmed some commercials, attempted to hit a few golf balls over the Falls and hung out with some Hooters girls, all while smoking a bunch of cigarettes and drinking diet coke. At the end of a long day, he climbed into his limousine for the airport. Where, upon his arrival, his jet was awaiting to whisk him back home.

What a life in deed!

Will I continue to watch? But of course, it's John Daly Baby!

I considered staying up late last night to watch this, but luckily, the Golf Channel is replaying it many times over the next few days so I can check it out later. One thing bothers me though - good ole country boy John Daly and a limousine - and we're not talking a breed of cattle. He should have a big old truck with FARM USE painted on the side with a gun rack in the back glass.

Last week John Daly announced he was leaving Hooter's at the home builders convention in Orlando. This week the first episode of his reality show was almost a commercial for Hooter's.

True that Miranda. But instead of having that pick-up, J.D. has a multi-million dollar travel coach. Not to shabby.

Ken, sex sells, that's all I have to say on that. Also, if you had a bunch of Hooters girl footage, wouldn't you show it?

I had a feeling that Daly wouldn't make the other side of Niagara Falls but he gave it a good try. I wonder if Bubba Watson has a chance?
