Winter Depression Thread - Page 8

post #127 of 1045

The heated driving range I go to here in New York has large heating tubes over head in each stall. I assume they are heated with natural gas, they do put out a lot of heat. However, given you are in an open stall they really don't work that well on windy days. Yes I have driven balls there when snow was on the ground, kind of weird as the ball disappears into the snow. They do not collect the balls until after the snow melts which on Long Island where I live usually isn't that long. I have never been there when they have run out of balls. They have a huge number of 55 gallon drums filled with balls, but I guess they could run out.

I moved to Florida 2 years ago and it cured my "Winter Depression."  I played Sunday 1/5/14 and it was 80*.

Not sure I'd want to live in Florida but wouldn't mind being able to spend winter's down there.  Haha.

It's winter and Little_Buck and I have been bowling our Azzes off.........LOL

 

He's 11 and chucks a 10lb ball with impressive authority 2-handed.......he's a little kid that doesn't weigh 100lbs yet.

Rolling a light 10lb ball is a huge disadvantage, but he somehow managed to score a 254 with it!  He struck 9 times in a row that game!!

He beat his DADDY that game!

I'm proud that he kicked my butt! LOL  I average over 200, so he needs to bowl well for an 11yr old to beat me.

There's a ton of people who do just that.  After Christmas, the golf courses are packed to the gills and slow.  Summer time golf down here is cheap and you have the courses to yourself, you just have to wear a lot of sunscreen and drink a ton of water.

My high school mascot was the Patriots. Everybody said "Pates" for short, instead if Pats like a normal person. Even the cheers used "pates." Ugh.

Also, we were green and white. Yeah.

Great post, Ernest. :-D

Ever since I started golfing last summer, all I can think of is golf. Winter has never sucked more in my life, and all I want to do is practice more... I should seek help.

Never realized the Leafs were the Lions of the NHL.

The Lions have to figure out how to get rid of the "Curse of Bobby Layne."

It's now 55 years and counting.

 

NOTE: The Lions are the only NFC team never to have played in the Super Bowl.

Tell the Lion to avoid Wade Phillips.  He has the "Curse of Flutie".  A double curse would be catastrophic!

So after below zero and single digit temps it gets to 60 in Northern New Jersey today.But unfortunately heavy rain made it impossible to practice or play today.But I did get some chipping practice in between downpours.
