According to TMZ, Dickson is now trying to sue for battery and negligence, and she is seeking $500,000 plus punitive damages. The golfer who embarrassingly missed the shot has been named as Kevin Klein, a Playboy Morning Show radio host.

Ten 45s I Owned As A Child And Why

So my taste was a bit eclectic. I was 10.

I don't know why I liked this song, but I did. Now it annoys the shit out of me.

This one I inherited from my parents, who loved Ike & Tina. Such a great call-and-response tune. My sister and I used to lip-sync it for my folks and they would laugh like hell.

Billy f**king Jack. I wasn't allowed to see the movie so I got this corny-ass record, which I loved at the time. I did finally see the movie years later. All I can say is, you gotta love an anti-war film when the protagonist beats the shit out of everybody.

Another Christmas gift that I requested. It was a strange choice, but then, I was always a little bit weird. I probably wanted it because the "The Streak" was so huge. Can't listen to it now, though. I cannot abide the sound of a banjo.

Another odd choice. I heard this song the other day on Sirius XM. Zzzzzz.

I loved this creepy ditty. Didn't know at the time it was written by Alan "Undercover Angel" O'Day. Al had a dark side, it would seem. I thought Helen Reddy was hot.

Every kid I knew owned this 45. If you didn't, you were a big fat loser. This was COMEDY GOLD, people--and timely, as streaking was just becoming popular in the mid-70s.

I wore this one out. I was a nerd. I had no idea it was about losing your virginity. If someone had told me, I would have said, "What's virginity?" and then things would have turned awkward in a hurry.

Best song on the list. Inherited from my parents. I'm glad they liked black people music better than shit like Bread or The Lettermen.

Epic is right. Still a kick-ass tune. I remember a friend of mine throwing an atomic conniption fit at Christmas because he asked for this 45 but got "Rubber Band Man" instead. Can you blame him?
