With 2010 coming to an end I thought I would look back over the past year and share some of my favorite things. It has been a good year for me on and off the course. In June I started a new job, moving over from Squash Canada to the Canada Games Council, during the summer I helped Metcalfe Golf dive head first into social media with twitter, facebook and a blog, In July I managed to win all 6 points at Intersectionals (unfortunately the team came up short), in August I won the Metcalfe Golf & CC Club Championship, in September I got married (at a golf course) and at the end of September my wife and I took an amazing trip to Scotland and Ireland where we were able to play a couple of rounds of golf and spend a day at St.Andrew’s. So, it has been a good year to say the least.
The only criteria I used for my list was that I had to have experienced it in 2010, regardless of when it came out. The lists are my favorite things, not necessarily the things I think are the best from 2010.
I have broken the list into 3 separate posts 1) Golf 2) Entertainment 3) Misc.
Note: After thinking about it I don’t really have anything for Misc. so this last post will be a 2b – entertainment, everything I didn’t include the other day.
Part 2b – Entertainment
Favorite Websites of 2010
– Who needs to read the news when it you can read it as it happens. Whenever I want to see what is happening in the world I go to twitter. All in 140 characters.
2. TED Talks
– A collection of talks by experts across various fields, the tag line “ideas worth spreading” hits the nail on the head as I often find myself informing others of the latest TED talk I just listened to
– Replacing email as the easiest way to communicate with friends, colleagues and people you don’t really talk to anymore.

1. The Walking Dead
2. Big Bang Theory
3. How I met your mother
