I am. I’ve been an organ donor since as long as I can remember. My late BIL was a recipient of a liver many years ago. He lived another 7 years, but it made a great difference. A close friend of mine got a kidney from a coworker. I cannot see a more honorable thing to do to help someone if I pass.

I think I am...not sure. But I had cancer (after originally signing up years before), does that cancel me out?

Not necessarily. Depends on the cancer and it’s affect on your organs.

Me too.

That commercial is hilarious.

I think I went to college with Coleman Sweeney.

Funny, and yes have been since the 80’s when I got my driver license. First few years I was on look out for roaming teams of hmo organ harvesters, but that never materialized.

I don't think anyone would want my liver.

But I have donated my golf swing to any 25 handicapper who wants to improve a bit.

I fully support organ donation... it is a wondrous thing.

Oh my gosh, I remember when people feared passing out at parties and waking up in bathtub full of ice with a note saying something about "We've harvested your kidney, call 911." Or some crazy s#it like that. I knew know people that used to believe that was a thing.

Yes, for many years.

last summer my 51 year old cousin died from an aneurysm and my understanding is her organs helped many. I do not recall now but think they said over 30 people were helped.

Note: She passed in a similar manner to Sweeney but she was not an asshole.

Yea I was in my 20’s and waking up in hotels from Kenya to Tokyo, I certainly heard those tales, and for the traveling years it was in the back of my head. Somehow life worked out.

    • No one is telling him what to be offended by. This makes no sense. 
    • Did you wake up feeling a bit nausea this morning Scott? Sab damn near pulled it off with a remarkable final round. After Shaf's drive on 18, I'm like Holly Shit ... 
    • New irons. I will probably swap out the 4 with a CB utility iron as things get cooler here, but so far I really like them.
    • Congrats to Schauffele! May not be a major but it ranks high on the list of a golfers resume. It does with me anyway.....
    • Mine was my mother.  She was a very angry person with a temper.   Golf was not her game.  She took it up to spend time with me when I was a teenager, after I started playing when I was a caddie. she had a violent, slashing swing.   Her clubs were a set of old MacGregor blades and she would hit the 2-iron a lot off the tee.   It would go far, but rarely where she wanted.  Seriously, it was like some type of hockey motion. she was easily frustrated and had zero short game.  She would ping pong back and forth across the green because her chipping miss was blading the ball.  She’d get mad, start swearing and sometimes take 4 chips/pitches around the green.  Several times I’d have to apologize because she’d get mad and swear so much.  If she was in a bunker, forget it.  Just run! Her main quirk was water though.   It could be a lake or a 2 foot wide stream in front of her.  She’d find it.   We were in Myrtle Beach at Wild Wing Hummingbird years ago and there is a creek hat winds through.  She was about 20 feet in front of he creek that was only a couple of feet deep in front of her.  Sure enough, she topped it and it went in the creek, carried away by the current.   She was super pissed and I couldn’t stop laughing.   We didn’t talk for most of the rest of the day.
