A Sunday to Remember

by Chris Sager

What better way to spend the weekend than watching two things you never thought would happen again? I am, of course, referring to the return of both Tiger Woods and Game of Thrones, in that order.

Growing up, golf never had the allure and flashiness you get with most other sports, but it did have Tiger Woods. Part of the reason I, along with many others across the world, was first drawn to him is because he brought a palpable sense of energy unique to golf at the time. I vividly remember seeing him win his second Masters in 2001 and immediately going into my backyard to replicate his shots.

Of course, he has had his fair share of trials and setbacks lately, but there’s always a part of me that will cheer him on because he reminds me of why I first started playing golf. For him to put everything together and win a major tournament for the first time in more than 10 years is pure resiliency and contributed toward an extremely memorable Sunday.

Additionally, after the golf ended Sunday, I joined the majority of America in watching a live episode of Game of Thrones for the first time in 595 days. 595 days! It’s bittersweet knowing this is the final season, and I will leave the spoilers out for those who haven’t watched, but the episode successfully capped off a Sunday for the ages.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
