My Autumn Exploits In Florida

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on November 27, 2012 by Jared Gallagher

So it’s hardly autumn in Florida… in fact its about 75 and sunny every day, but I didn’t want to make you all jealous.

I’ve been down here for 113 days, not counting five that I spent in Owasso/Velma for Thanksgiving and two in Stillwater for Homecoming, but have had the opportunity to do some amazing things already. They say “YOLO”, so my goal is to see and do as much as possible while I’m here. These are a few pictures from my short time here.

ImageI got to be some of the main talent in a commercial! Okay, so it was just a Capital One Bowl commercial and they didn’t want to pay for real talent…


ImageThis is what you have to deal with when you play golf in Florida.
