i've had two friends of mine tell me that i should learn to play golf for business reasons. i'm not kidding. some of my friends and my banker/consultant cousins play, but i can't think of a more boring game to spend time learning, other than curling. in any event, my firm's brand of snootiness lies in knowing wines (hint: no yellow tail or other mass-produced wines) and being able to pontificate during wine tastings. that's absolutely no problem for me! golf? meh.
