Breaking News: Airline Loses Checked Item, Then Finds It

The Bleacher Report reports that United Airlines lost professional golfer Rory McIlroy’s clubs before a major tournament in Ireland. And then they found them in time for the tournament.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. Was that news story more or less exciting than watching golf on television? Answer: it depends if someone lost the remote, and you are stuck watching the entire tournament.

2. What golf travel stories can we expect next from the Bleacher Report? How about: “Golfer almost misses connection, but gets on plane before doors close. Because he was flying first class and they often wait for people who fly first class.”

3. Is it fair to say, we are all glad the golf clubs were found quicker than CNN could get a panel of experts analyzing where they might be? No, it is not fair to say that, because our dream team panel of experts would have included a mischievous four-year-old traveler, who explains why his parents let him sit on the rotating baggage claim conveyor belt, while conducting the entire analysis via Skype with golf clubs in hand.

  1. If CNN can’t write a story about finding an airplane, they’ll write one about airplane finding the luggage.
