I hate this weather.

Actually, it bites. With a capital “B.”

Right about now, I am missing the California sunshine and the possibility of throwing on my Greg Norman polo shirt and Dockers and heading out to the links.

Instead, I see puddles on the fairway and unplayable greens.

It’s April, for crying out loud!

Yeah, I’ve checked out Mulligan’s, thanks to my lovely wife. It’s sweet. Keeps your swing in tact while dredging your way through the endless winter.

But, it doesn’t provide the wind. Or the annoying squirrels. Or the exercise that I need.

There’s nothing like a golf course. It’s an escape from your every day life. To play well, you have to forget all of your troubles and concentrate on the course.

I need that. Badly. And so does my wife.

I am a happier man when I finish a round of 92. It’s not about the score, it’s about a release that no one can put a price on.

So, enough of winter already. Yeah, call me a whiner or whatever, but this has got to stop.

Give California this weather for a bit.

Golf gods, please cooperate and work your magic.

McHale hangin’ on: Former Celtics great Kevin McHale promises to be back for another season as the Vice President of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He says he is bringing Kevin Garnett back with him.

Too bad for KG. He may go down as the best player to never make the NBA Finals.

Maybe Boston’s continual losing ways is somehow making its way to McHale. Maybe through osmosis.

Backward jinx: White Sox hurler Mark Buehrle tossed a no-hitter on Wednesday night. He said that he tried to jinx himself after the fifth inning by telling everyone he had a no-no going.

It worked.

So, in turn, I am going to ask for more rain and snow. Please! Pretty please!

‘They’re baaack!’: That was the headline on espn.com most of Thursday afternoon. It was a story on Chicago’s Ben Wallace and Miami’s Shaquille O’Neal facing off in the playoffs again.

So, we know they are back.

My question is: Will they ever go away? Pleaseeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally: Manny Ramirez hit a home run.

What’s scary is that Boston was 8-5 without him going deep.

And that’s as close as I’ll get to ever giving the Red Sox a compliment.

You can thank Derek Lowe for that . . .
