    If you travel to any games, don't ask for Jameson's at the pub. You will get the Scalito kicked out of you.

    I asked for Jameson at the hut between 9 and 10 at Royal Portrush last year, caddie threatened to quit if I didn't switch to Bushmills. He wasn't joking, I switched. On the 10th, I had 180 to the green. I hit a grounder that stopped pin high, 8 feet. Caddie says, "That's what we here call a 'stepmom'; you're on it, but you shouldn't be"

    Out of curiosity, I looked up the SSE Belfast arena website and looked at seating plans. For ice hockey..they use a quarter of the arena's seating. For basketball...they use half of the arena's seating. For darts....they use the full capacity.

    Darts are pretty big in Europe. God have mercy on us.

    Is the anger at Jameson's because it's an Irish whiskey and not a United Kingdom whiskey like Bushmills is?

    Yes. Jameson is made in Cork/Ireland (Catholic) and Bushmill is made in Northern Ireland (Protestant). It's more about supporting the home town distillery than religion or politics. I mean they love thier Guinness in Belfast.

    Here's the irony. John Jameson, the founder of Jameson's, was Scottish and protestant.

    It was a regional thing for me, the Bushmills distillery is right around the corner from Portrush.

    We were in Portrush last March. Great town on the northern coast.
