Hall of Fame
By bkuehn1952 on 9/28/12
The man needs no introduction by now, but at oob we believe those who deserve to be recognized should be recognized. Therefore, it's is my greatest pleasure to share with you Brian "bkuehn1952" Kuehn's latest submission. And in case you missed any of his 34 previous posts, I've linked them out here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Enjoy!
Fred Couples' recent selection for the Golf Hall of Fame stirred up a great deal of interest in Halls of Fame. Should Fred make it based on popularity, or is his resume lacking? Soon, the merits of Pete Rose were being discussed as well as the propriety of allowing e-journalists like Jason Sobel to participate in the election process. It got me thinking: What would the oob Hall of Fame look like?
I decided to gather together an unbiased panel to aid in establishing the criteria for the oob Hall of Fame (that would be me). After careful consideration of all the nominees (while consuming a 6-pack last evening), the selection committee presents the inaugural inductees of the oob Hall of Fame.
This was written by Brian Kuehn, a reader/follower/fellow oober and the opinions are 100% his and do not reflect those of oobgolf in anyway. Enjoy! I'm sure he's ready for your feedback.

nice list above... I'm a little disappointed not to see guzzlingil up there. He has to have the record for most alcoholic drinks consumed (bud heavies, of course) while still maintaining a single digit hcp.
It's an honor just to be nominated.
I nominate bkuehn1952, for people like him are the backbone of oob. Also no oob HoF would be complete without its fearless leader, mustang6560. His ongoing quest to break 80 embodies the eternal struggle that is golf for most amateurs.

Aw... thanks, bkuehn1952 - I really appreciate it!
I really would *love* to go play again, but I'm still saving for a replacement car - an effort another friend of mine is now calling "Project Subaru." God and budget willing, I hope to be into a used Subaru Outback AWD wagon sometime in the next couple of months.
And if somehow, some way, a few really well-off people were to make it possible for me to buy a new vehicle, I would be buying a *new* Subaru Outback wagon with all-wheel-drive. :)
I nominate Pete Rose. At least put him in ONE.
I can't believe my 22+ handicap and like 4 postings didn't qualify me. F- this site, it is too elitist for me. Just kidding, I love this place.

@clevelandstever: OK... you've got 12 months to turn oobGolf.com into "The Cleveland Show." :-P

bkuehn1952, I would be happy to caddy for you anytime. Show up in Tallahassee and you'll be my guest at Southwood for a round and lunch. Your money will not be good here.
