Joe Simpson wasn't having the best of Father's Days. His bad back was misbehaving. It was enough to keep him off the golf course, and that's not easy to do. Fortunately, Simpson had an enjoyable option that also involved the game of golf. He would watch the U.S. Open on television. This was nice, because he had a rooting interest. Joe's son, Scott, was one shot off the lead as the day began at San Francisco's Olympic Club.

Jessica Simpson is fighting the battle of the post-baby bulge, a process she says is slower than she expected. Maxwell Drew Johnson arrived May 1 to Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, and the singer has been working double time to care for the little one and get back to her fighting weight in time for a Sept. 10 body reveal on Katie Couric's new chat show. Her biggest challenge? Her pregnancy cravings.

Joe Simpson, one leg badly broken, was dangling helplessly above his doom in the Peruvian Andes, connected to life and his climbing partner, Simon Yates, by a 5/16-inch nylon line. Then Yates cut the rope to save his own life. That's the crux of the story Simpson survived to tell in his book, "Touching the Void" (Harper & Row, $17.95). Simpson touches a nerve of the mountaineering community and the hearts of others who agonize with both men.

What: "Dark Shadows Falling," Jonathan Cape Publishers, London, $24.95. In 1985, British climber Joe Simpson, on a descent with partner Simon Yates from the peak of Siula Grande in Peru, fell and injured himself badly. Yates attempted to get Simpson down by lowering him, slowly, by rope. But that also met with disaster when, in a blinding, deafening snowstorm, Yates lowered Simpson over the edge and had to cut him loose or he would have been pulled over too.

The three questions Joe Simpson fields most often concern God, friendship and the life-or-death decision that in many ways made him the sort of character strangers walk up to and ask intimate, philosophical questions. So far, no one has asked him the question he finds most intriguing, says the British mountaineer, now 44.

At the golf course, after a big victory, no two players celebrate the same way. Different strokes. Roger Maltbie's general reaction to the successful conclusion of a tournament is: It's Miller time. First round's on Roger. Billy Casper's general reaction used to be: Soup's on. Come and get it. Time to go out for a buffalo burger and an order of fries. Mac O'Grady? Well, you never know with Mac O'Grady.
