    Default Dsic Golf

    So my friends have been playing Disc Golf for years. And, they have been attempting to get me to go over the last couple. I rather enjoy them asking because there is an entire plethora of jokes that are at my disposal to describe such a lame sport and the lame participants of said sport. After numerous one-liners, slams, and witty retorts, I get a "*^%$#-you" and that's the end of it. I usually conclude with, "I have an idea. Why don't we go play actual golf you dumb-%^$#$s."

    However, I decided that accepting their invitation, and then beating them at this lame sport, would be just as entertaining as rejecting their offers. Turns out . . . it's not a bad sport after all. I actually enjoyed myself despite the obvious broke hippie culture that seems to have enveloped the sport.

    Either way, have you played? What do you think? Easy, right?

    Yes I've played it. Never have I planned and gone to play it. Nor do I have any friends who have suggested to go out of our ways to play it. It's just that we would play it if we come across a place that provides it.

    And, they have been attempting to get me to go over the last couple.
    You sound like a fun guy.

    Quite a few friends play. They also play golf. I can't stand the first, and don't care enough about the second. For them, it's more of a social thing. They bring coolers and beer and just bullshit. They don't even keep score. I tried to make it competitive once. The main problem is how long they take. I can't last any more than 9 holes.

    That's not an issue here. We were done in about an hour and fifteen.

    I've been grumpy since the age of ten. It's a lifestyle choice, really.

    Yeah it's fun, a casual game that doesn't involve sitting on your ass. I used to live near Codorus State Pk (PA) where they had a decent size course.

    There's a good one in the city. And, they are supposed to add another 18 within the next year.

    Of course, the problem is that it's in the city and you need to get out of there by sundown.

    I have one a short walk away from me. It's actually well designed. I think they have big events every once in awhile. It might be one of those legitimate sports we never hear about. Like "dodgeball" leagues.

    That's what I'm starting the think.

    Is there a MJ for that sport? I mean, what are my efforts going to get me? Frisbee sponsorships seem pretty low-end.

    Frisbee golf is fun. I've played it with my kids and friends. It actually can take some skill as well. I've also owned a disc or two of the type used in the "active" sport, you basically can have your own caddy bag of different size discs for different style holes. I like to throw things, so I think it is kind of neat.

    Of course, turning pro is another story...

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
