So Phil Mickelson has a dinosaur head.....

From, http://www.golfdigest.com/magazine/2009/06...elson_interview



Golf Digest: Not to get too personal, but what's with the dinosaur head?

Phil Mickelson: That was my birthday present from Amy. Last June. Of the dinosaurs that have been preserved, the No. 1 is Sue, a very famous one at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. A Tyrannosaurus rex. Her head is like five feet long. The one Amy gave me is from Mongolia [paleontologists say it's possibly a Tarbosaurus bataar].



Male or female?

Female, not that I would know by inspecting it or anything. I'm just going by what I was told.



What is yours named?

Haven't named it yet. But it's the coolest thing I've ever gotten. My kids and I sometimes will just sit in my office and talk about what the world was like 68 million years ago. Amanda, our oldest daughter [born the day after the 1999 U.S. Open], wanted to be a paleontologist for a long time. Even before we got the dinosaur head. Our kids are really into that stuff, like outer space.



What is a dinosaur head worth?

I don't know. It was a birthday present. We've had four or five people bid on it, but it's not for sale. Talk about giving something to the man who has everything. I was really surprised, just like I was when Amy gave me the meteorite. That's from Argentina, a crash from the 1930s, I believe. I got that from Amy last Christmas. It weighs about 300 pounds and is the size of a basketball. I also have a small one that friends gave to me. It's about the size of a softball. There are more meteorites around than dinosaurs.

    It is awesome when you have a wife that is willing to go through the effort to get you a truly unique gift. It adds to why that person is special to you. Good for Amy to go out and get such an odd and unique gift like that. I guess it wouldn't do her any good to go out and get Phil a new golf shirt or a cool putter.

    Gets out of bed, sir...

    And finds a space rock that's as large as his head...

    Poor, poor Phil, and his meteorite!"

    When I first read the title, I thought to OP was going to make fun of his head size.



    What a let down. That would've been a great thread.

    [suspendTigerbashing]

    Miley Cyrus' net worth is estimated to be $25-$50 million. That's a lot of money by anyone's standards, but nowhere near a billion dollars.
