54 Covering Bridges
Jeff Bridges is not your typical Hollywood celebrity. In addition to his acting, he can sing, play guitar, paint, and sculpt. He has also been happily married for 25 years, and has offered the scandal sheets virtually no fodder in a career that spans decades of work and numerous honors. Oscar-Nominated four times (most recently for 2000ís The Contender), he returns in this summerís horse racing epic Seabiscuit - a performance that many believe will finally gain the multi-talented actor that coveted gold statuette. If so, he will have plenty of good cigars to celebrate.

With a host of new, sought-after limited edition cigars, competitively priced machine-made alternatives, and an aggressive quality-control initiative, the Cubans seem well-equipped for the task - and the possible lifting of the U.S. embargo is never far from their minds.

A story of those elusive golf gods and how they smiled down on one happy hacker.
