'Sasquatch' arrested

I don't envy the guy who took Randy Quaid into custody.
[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Randy Quaid, left, at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008."]
We have confirmed Quaid and his wife were picked up in the Southwest Texas town of Marfa today for allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 plus hotel bill at a ritzy resort in Santa Barbara, California.

It would take courage to slap the cuffs on Quaid.  He's huge.

When we interviewed him at the Sundance Film Festival a couple of years ago he showed up in a floor-length fur coat.  He took up the entire doorway.  A wag on our staff promptly dubbed him "Sasquatch."

In that coat he certainly did resemble a giant furry beast.   Wintry Utah (Sundance is held in January in Park City) seemed like an appropriate place to spot a yeti.  So I'm not sure what he was doing in South Texas, where this weekend the temperatures are supposed to be in the 80s.

    Stay away from the butterknives(blades) those are the ones the guys on tv use. Get a set that includes a hybrid or two. those are usually the easier ones to hit. Something with a wide sole. Help you get the ball in the air. Best ones for the price... Try them out. Adams a2 os. Orig. ping eye 2, Callaway BB04, Cobra almost any. All under 400.00. Best thing to do is to see what works best for you. Good luck coach.

    I really like the dress but know you would seem fab in both! I cannot believe anything in the store will probably be 1/2 off! WOW, wish I lived closer because I really like The Limited.
