PG and I were watching the Masters golf tournament yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t a very nice day here on the Wet Coast, so we had no inclination to head outdoors and get soaked and cold. We spent most of the day eating, drinking, and watching TV. It was lovely, and a nice change.
Anyway, at one point in the broadcast, one of the announcers made some remark about the many golfers in the tournament representing every single continent in the world, except the Arctic and Antarctica.
Since when is the Arctic a continent? Have they redrawn the world map? Has global warming somehow created a new northern super-continent by fusing a number of the Canadian islands in the Arctic Ocean? Has Greenland perhaps migrated up to the North Pole? Have I missed some major geographical event???
That announcer may know golf. But I’ll bet he failed geography in high school.
