  1. Dare we ask what kind of performing you will be doing?
  2. Thanks everyone for your replies so far. I look forward to more. I also forgot to add an option of "Makes No Difference". I'm in this group. Either the weekend or a weekday doesn't bother me. My wife on the other hand prefers weekday so golf isn't cutting into "our" together time. I played in a scramble this year that had 144 people or more. I know there was a team of 3 and a team of 5 and then a couple teams that showed up that had previously said they wouldn't make it so it's hard telling really how many teams there were. I know it was busy and a long day. Thanks for that tip abou
  3. I usually carry 12-18. Well I start with that many. It's hard telling how many I end with. Sometimes that number is half or double depending on how the round goes and how many I find on the course. I try to start with about a dozen new balls still in their sleeves and then I have about a half dozen or more from the round(s) before.
  4. If you were to play in a golf outing, most likely a 4 "man" scrammble, which of the poll options would you prefer the tournament be set up. Weekday Morning Tee Times Weekday Morning Shotgun Start Weekend Morning Tee Times Weekend Morning Shotgun Start Would any of the options keep you from playing?
  5. I seen that too. I'll agree.
  6. Am I missing something? How do they know Obama will win? Did McCain drop out and I just haven't heard? I'd have to hear his exact comment to decide but I don't see how his response was racist. Or are you talking about the original question being racist? I'd say the original question is a little on the racist side.
  7. I'm not even sure that most of my family votes Democrat. I know for sure that my grandma always voted Republican. I was related to a former State Speaker of the House. His name was Vern Riffe. He is the longest serving Speaker of the House in Ohio. He served as Speaker for 20 years. He was from Portsmouth (Southern Ohio). When you enter Scioto County there's a sign that says "Welcome to Vern Riffe Country". Sadly he passed away before I could meet him. He snuck out of my grandpa's funeral too fast and I wasn't able to talk to him. Since I was only 15 when he passed I had to rely on my parent
  8. That's interesting. I'm not sure if they can vote in Ohio or not. Looking at the voter registration you can't vote if you are incarcerated for a felony but it doesn't say anything about being out and being a felon. I just talked with my county board of elections and found out that I'm not listed. I voted back in 2004 but have since moved out of the county. I don't remember being asked if I wanted to register to vote at the BMV. So I have to re-register. I sure hope they get things worked out this year. In 2004 I stood in line for 2 hours waiting to vote. That's a little crazy if you ask me.
  9. The most I've ever drank on the course was 2. That was earlier this year. I just don't see how being drunk on the golf course is worth it. I work to hard to make the money to pay for the round to drink too much and not get to enjoy the time. Most of the time I play I have a jug of water and a couple of Gatorades.
  10. It's not just kids that do this. Have you ever been in a business meeting trying to "teach" "adults" something and have them ignore you? I have. I was running a meeting and teaching some people how to use a new system and half of them were ignoring me and the other half were responding to e-mails on their blackberries. Including the head of the department. Goes right along with the quote below. Once again Julie has the answer.
  11. I'm hoping my Jackets can comeout and "win one for the gipper". We lost our President (I think that's what he was) over the winter so we've got something to play for this year. Plus we haven't had a winning team since our expansion year so it's time. Let's Go Jackets!!!! This one's for Mr. Mac.
  12. First car I bought was a 1989 Chevy S-10. I bought it for $1,300. At the time I was working at a car dealership. We got it either as a trade in or for some reason we picked it up at auction but I think we took it in as a trade. Well I had a little bit of savings ($1,100) and the last $200 was taken out of my paychecks. My favorite car. I drove it for a little over a year before I blew the motor. Wish I would have put the extra $300 into and got a used motor. I miss that truck. Growing up that was the car that I wanted. I wanted an S-10 because my cousin had one. I also wanted it because it wa
  13. Just like most of the other threads you get involved in. I'm surprised this thread has stayed as "clean" as it has so far. I figured it would have gone down the drain by now.
  14. Luckily never had an infection (knock on wood). I will never do this again though. Not worth the risk. Now I might sleep in them over night here and there but never more than one night.
  15. Last time I bought something from a golf store was when I bought my new putter. The last time I was in a golf store I didn't buy anything though. It was Labor Day and my mom and wife were down at DSW looking at and buying shoes so I went over to Golfsmith to browse around. I hit the Callaway Big Bertha irons I'm planning to buy and also hit the Callaway X hot driver and the TM Burner Driver. Trying to decide which one of those I want. Leaning towards the TM Burner though. My next purchase at a golf store will be a big one. I'll hopefully get my new irons, new driver, new fairway wood, possibly
  16. I was kind of thinking the same thing. I sure hope mom didn't find out about that because that would have been an interesting conversation to listen to.
  17. Oh come on now. You know you are interested in Crystal the Snow horse. I mean that book and the book about avalanches have to be pretty close right?? Maybe Crystal can recognize avalanche danger. You could take her along and she could warn you of a possible avalanche. That's crazy that the software is that far off.
  18. Good response. I'll have to remember that if I ever "find" me a new ball. You're not possibly looking for a roommate, pool boy, caddie or anything like that are you? 300 days of sunshine and warm weather sure beats this midwest crap I deal with in Ohio. Rain, cold, snow, ice, did I mention either rain or cold? Then there are days that we get it all in a 10 minute period.
  19. I started out with glasses but quickly went to contacts. I was playing baseball and as a catcher my choices were either wearing the Chris Sabo goggles (he was the Cincinnati Reds third baseman in 1990 for those of you that are young or don't know baseball) or contacts. I talked with the coaches about it and they gave me the pros and cons about both. I chose the contacts. I did have a bad experience with them once though. When you first get them the doc (or atleast mine did) suggested only wearing them for a short period of time. So I always chose after school during baseball practice or a game
  20. I'm glad I only use this as my crutch to get me through the work day. If I wouldn't have been able to get on here at home I may have been forced to spend time with my wife.
  21. It was a bad attempt at a joke. It kind of missed the mark but that's ok, Ms. Texas.
  22. You're too smart for this board. You make some of us (mostly just me) look kind of foolish.
  23. Alright from this point forward no women allowed. Well no women allowed to participate. You have a good idea Julie. Julie, you know you look kind of like my second wife? I got started golfing around the age of 13. Never really took it all that serious. It was just going to be a thing I did on the weekends to hang out with my grandpa and aunts and uncles. I wanted to get a job at a golf course. Never grew the stones to actually call a couple golf courses to see what I could/would be able to do. Do as Julie said and just start a conversation with the pro and then mention that you would like
  24. That's crazy. I'm not sure I would have been with it enough to do what you did or to finish the round. I would have been way too shaky to finish the round. On a similar note a guy here at work said his brother was at the Ohio State game on Saturday and the guy in front of him had a heart attack and died right there in the stands. Glad to hear the guy was doing ok. Have you heard from his buddy yet to see how he's doing?
