7/12/2012 I put a dent in golf space time continuum today making my first double eagle during mens league on number 4 city park 9 , driver 275 yards then 5 wood 225 yards in the hole . The odds are 1 in 6 million! Best regards Rob Blessin
Fort Collins golfer lands a rare double eagle

Rob Blessin and his playing partners figured it was a good shot. Not until they reached the green did they know just how good. “We looked in the hole and all went crazy,” Blessin said.
Blessin, 49, of Fort Collins recorded the rarest of golf scores last week when he made double eagle — also called an albatross — at City Park Nine Golf Course. A 225-yard approached shot with a 5-wood on the par-5 fourth hole hit the front of the green and rolled in for the 2.
The hole was playing at 500 yards during men’s league play on Thursday. The double eagle came during a round in which Blessin said he shot 35, his first round under par. The 14-handicapper also birdied the first hole and said he had a tap-in birdie on No. 7. “It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime shot,” said Blessin, who is left-handed. “It was one of those moments in life. I was hitting everything right on the money and could do no wrong.”
The odds of making a double eagle are far higher than making a hole-in-one, which Blessin said he also has accomplished. Some studies list the odds of making an albatross at 6-million-to-1. Other studies indicate it’s closer to 1-million-to-1. Odds of making a hole-in-one range from 40,000-to-1 to 13,000-to-1.
“It’s a rare occurrence, for sure,” City Park Nine professional Doug Perry said, confirming the shot was witnessed by playing partners Garrett Tate and Eric Stashak. “This is my fourth year here, and it’s the first I’ve come across. It could have happened before, but I don’t know anyone else who’s made a double eagle at City Park.”
Blessin said he actually had done it before on the same hole at City Park, but it came during the winter, with three holes punched in the green. His second shot went into one of the holes without the pin. “This one officially counts,” he said. “It was a heck of a shot and pretty cool for me.”
The website doubleeagleclub.com lists 1,170 double eagles by 1,137 members as of April 12. Only 63 have been made on the PGA Tour, and Blessin said he witnessed a pair on the same day. Steve Pate and Jim Gallagher both made double eagles in 1990 in the final round of The International at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock. Pate made 2 on the eighth hole and Gallagher on No. 17.
Blessin said he “didn’t play for beans” in his round Saturday, but he plans to play in this weekend’s City Championship held over three days at City Park, Collindale and SouthRidge golf courses.
“I don’t know if there are any double eagles in the future,” he said, “but I’ll give it my best shot.” Follow reporter Jeff Bersch at twitter.com/Coloradoan_JB
12/16/2011 We are getting ready to roll out the new website stay tuned in the next few weeks! We are going to also be working with the San Mateo museum on the NeXT Museum Display and wow, time travel is officially here Welcome to the Black Hole Professor Mallett I've been searching for a you a long time!
10/5/2011 Steve Jobs R.I.P. ; I honestly do not know where I would be in life without Steve Job's visionary technology, I would not have had this amazing opportunity and very good run keeping his NeXT dream alive. It has been a way of life for me since 1993 and has kept a roof over my head, food on the table , the lights on and bills paid and I know I've made a lot of people happy keeping their NeXT's going. All I know is it has been a really good run, we will miss the heck out of you Steve . I don't cry often this is one of those times and I'm sure there is an afterlife , I'm confident heaven now has one heck of a rock solid OS and Steve's visonary inovation is probably getting things sorted out already a few sparks flying off halo's with improved angel wings regardless of religion. I'll even say it for you Steve may your beliefs in hari krishna bring you eternal peace and feel free to light up a few butts up there once in awhileto keep em on their toes man. I'm sure you have plans to modernise heaven's infrastructure with cloud computing touchscreen stuff without buttons just a lot of good karma, peace , hey Steve look in on me and all of us now and then and make sure we are all OK these NeXT's are still humming along and I'll keep em going as long as I can for you and may your memory and legacy never fade away NeXT / Apple forever.
8/24/2011 Steve Jobs resigns, you've done an outstanding job sir and we are still here. We just saw NeXT computers on MSNBC.
8/1/2011 I'm guessing if I had money that because they are passing the legislation to raise the debt ceiling that buying option calls would probably make some money today easily unless it is a buy on the rumor sell on the news deal. Buying puts on companies directly affected by the cuts in this package would also make sense, who nows I'm sure there is going to be more stuff happening . President Obama turns 50 on the 4th , I'm guessing he will probably have fun shooting under his age on 9 either one from the tips on Congressional, you can do it, hopefully the greenskeepers will go easy on him lol! Happy Birthday if you are reading this cool!
7/27/2011 My Wave theory of economics , I believe that global economic markets are increasingly affected by news the more severe the news the more catastrophic the outcome. Currently the Debt Ceiling has the potential in my opinion to be an economic tsunami of biblical proportions and apparently the politicians in charge of coming to an equitable solution to avert disaster think that it is a good idea to be standing on the beach and wondering out into the receding waters with boogie boards and no life jackets playing surfing safari on the ipod some kicking back under shade trees with umbrella drinks . I would scream puts on everything as far as stock is concerned at this point but no we have to sit here and watch this unfold at their mercy as this slow moving catastrophe begins to gain speed quickly . I would go into detail about how I think may be there needs to be a global bond market where lots of good would come of it like a global web based educational site for all to contribute to and use and how we need to make a new global deal plan and go all out to stimulate the economy by upgrading the power grid, road systems , communication systems, education systems , food resources , health and medicine research , divert flood waters through water treatment centers, siphoning off topsoil rich water and diverting that to farms and pipe the treated water through to underground aquifer's as it is after all fresh water and could be used for irrigation and consumer use , etc. ,Esc . A lot of great ideas the solution to the debt ceiling is what is the exact midpoint on this put Black Rock economists on this and Goldmann Sachs and Dimon oh Cramer even they already are and when Cramer is sounding Tornado Sirens you know the fit is about to hit the span.
The compromise lies in the center of all this the exact center make it fit as there is a Ying and a Yang and a bullseye , hit the bullseye for the love of God please you politicians do it now as in now today or by the 2nd. If we loose our Triple AAA bond rating as in the USA and default on paying our notes , the Tsunami Wave will hit and we will all be standing their with boogie boards by force because rather than choosing the high ground of coming to a solution before an economic bean counter deadline of August 2nd to deflate the trading algorithm earthquake and after shocks through logic , compromise and intelligent solutions , they played politics and brought us all down to the beach to $urf the friggin tsunami . Not having a solution in place by August 2nd makes about as much sense as flying a kite in a Hurricane whilst boogie boarding waiting for an economic earthquake driven tsunami blindfolded. I know they have been trying but now it feels like they are cramming for a 4 Trillion Dollar exam , I've said my peace turn the tides of history please this is to great a country to see it all washed away in some whirlpool by this series of mistakes in calculating the magnitude of what this particular legislation means in terms of the success or failure of economic recovery for us all. I'm proud to live in the United States of America and have faith if anyone can pull this one off just in time , super hero stuff, (surfin in the pipeline tube on the Northshore man )in the making it is the President, Congress and Senate , the Fed, Surf's up get her done , we are all counting on you. PS I even have faith if it is the stooges and keystone cops at this point , sign something hopefully the best you can come up with in short time strategic planning and get it resolved by August Second am I screaming in this blog loud enough please just do it. Then you can all play golf on the 3rd he he he.

Life calls it 6 billion years of nothing but a series of events taking place in the universe around well me. I’m only here for a small time in the great span of it all and I am trying to make a positive difference. I don’t know where all this is going to as the next few billion years may be better or worse over all , I know I have helped and at times made mistakes but I have also had success although not the greatest of success. I’m apparently now being completely should I say focused on in terms of just about everything that a person would possibly have an interest in taking a look at and apparently making a judgment call. I am planning on filling any orders for computers, software and the products that I sell in the future until my departure from this great place we all know as home planet Earth. I have not tried to create any problems however controversial situations have developed as to who, what, where, when and why obviously how I reached this point in life according to some folks with out being completely scrutinized. I’m not trying to loose anyone although apparently previous things I have written have been completely misinterpreted in terms of translation and well at times my writing just is not the greatest, I’m trying. At any rate I would appreciate if the people currently viewing this without my permission well because they are obviously on my home network illegally or however they are doing this please let me write in peace. Thank you, at any rate I am going to continue to write stories that are at times worth reading and other times probably not the greatest read but I am making an effort to write what is good to me. I apologize if I ever have offended anyone and don’t need to go into details but if you had to read something out of the many billions of web pages this is probably not the only choice I honestly am not trying to cause any problems I’m guessing that somewhere out there for whatever reason my personal character Rob Blessin is being slandered by the very fact that I don’t want it to be, then I realized I did the same stupid thing to people I do care about and so I guess I must be an idiot for thinking that this wouldn’t be some sort of retribution. I with drew a lot of stupid things and said well all in all the whole story was at times brilliant and at other times causing problems for people potentially so I chose to remove the whole thing.as stories go the whole thing has led to a lot of trouble apparently. I did make some changes to it for the better and at times thought who in the heck would ever find the story in the first place including now as it also is gone from my drive which kind of makes me think at times I would have like to have gone back edited it , made some changes for the better , taking out any statements that looking back well were obviously not well thought out. Also made sure that a lot of the things I said about people were taken out of context and actually sought out permission from them getting approval of what was really said and in fact allowing them room on the site to make a statement back. The best thought would have been putting everyone on it that I included in the best possible light. At any rate I am trying to find the right girl or should I say women to settle down with and raise a family , my lifestyle is most of the time I’m thinking it is fair to say without problems. Here is what has happened I have been the target of these people that have been basically focusing on completely destroying everything possible about me , I think that they have honestly been going to every single extreme to make sure that everything is constantly being messed with to make me look like a complete idiot. I admit at times I do not need assistance in this respect at other times it makes it practically impossible to accomplish anything in fact I would say ever thing I have been trying to do is constantly being scrutinized or affected be these people. I am trying to keep it together and admit I have a lifestyle do make mistakes and only ask for them to please take all of the things that they are using to basically continually monitor and I suspect broadcast off the air now immediately please. I don’t need to go into details but I have been the brunt of this sick joke for long enough and only ask for it to be discontinued forever. I’m now taking a break and would appreciate the privacy to do so permanently in fact anyone that has witnessed this would . Why would anyone want this to happen to them after seeing what they are doing to me , my reputation as I say I honestly do apologize to all concerned? At any rate if the story about water has a happy ending it would be everyone putting to gether a string of believe it or not beads stretching from here to well believe it or not Manhattan to a girl she knows who she is everyone winds up with a GPS photo and we basically make friendship bracelets she picks one out of a huge bin and they choose how to manage the next years spectacular mission sounds fair to me, If a miracle does happen I have a fairly good size selection of marbles waiting here for her to choose from a game of marbles will determine who picks out this lucky friendship bracelet as to what happens to all of the other beads , I do not want to know but I’m sure chaos , comedy , fun consensual passion and friendship are no doubt options the most direct route from there to here would be fun and where the trail leads afterward perhaps around the world would make it all the more fun limit of 1 mile of beads with additional miles for those well that need to have a little fun….. to be continued provided I stay out of trouble and a serious miracle happens I’m going to need one. At any rate a clue believe it or not you may just want to call me as I would drive back with you…. But I wrote something for you in this directory, your name leads you to a story I’ll think you’ll like! At any rate any of the other folks that have names attached to photos in this directory a clue it is not you but I feel the love. At any rate she knows she is , she is hot and well heck if I’m required to move there I would consider it however I have a lot of stuff and currently turning this place like my last into a well castle as one thing Fort Collins needs is well a fort , this will be fort Fun as I already have a pool, pool table, hot tub, foosball , pinball , darts, beer a museum of NeXT stuff that will be eventually set building mini golf and skateboard half pipe and serpentine run golf putting green probably a tire swing and tree house but I’m not sure if I can pull permits for the last two so may have to wing it as we have the most skilled ninja carpenters on deck also a wet bar, barbecue pit and plans for a friggin luau with well a stage for additional fun. The band may get back together man , at any rate I know your muckity mucking as usual with the who’s who in the industry and will probably break some famous rock stars heart that is if I am lucky and well I feel lucky also to let you know I’m honest as there appears to be sharkettes aplenty schooling about but honestly my goal is to swim with you as you are the prettiest lady I’ve ever met in terms of intelligence, personality and likeability J.E. and well I know I screwed up , I searched for you after you left in Denver was bummed thought I saw your auto left a note probably the wind as I say , it is a long shot I know but so is powerball. As usual off on a tangent at any rate you had a photo of you and Froto to make things clear…
I will update the clownoramus deal soon as well fixing anything that may be screwed up and look out you powerball game gods the army of clownoramus is in pursuit, in fact we want you to make it really friggin hard because these guys and gals are good the best you have ever seen. As far as the water fight I guess it started yesterday when I sprayed my new kitten Bella Donna with a water bottle as she was on the kitchen counter trying to eat chili on the stove bolted out the door and I suspect she may have made contact , she also fetches and let me tell you she is my secret weapon. As the black hole turns….super kitten photo of her as she actually beat a squirrel up the tree a few days after she made the journey out by car from North Carolina and well lets just say that definitely started something laughter from everyone concerned! We need a Jimmy Buffett concert in Colorado I’m thinking a photo of 10,000 coconuts might do it , heck I’d where em if Jimmy showed up bring back College days for the love of god! Thanks for helping today Lee Lee…Bella as a kitten beats squirrel up tree!
