  1. Bump! I'm in North Canton...

    Home course is The Fairways at Arrowhead. It used to be Arrowhead Country Club before it went public 4-5 years ago. I also play alot at The Sanctuary, Seven Hills, The Legends, Tam O'Shanter, and Mayfair CC. The Quarry(#4 public course in Ohio) is about 15 minutes from me. Never played there but I'm organizing an Ohio Outing on GolfWRX next season so I'm really excited to play there and have heard alot of good things.

    I want defense.  Boa constrictor wrapping itself around an offense and squeezing the life out of it like a helpless rabbit defense.  I want quarterbacks peeing down their legs and audibling out of pass plays because their ribs hurt too bad to breathe defense.

    And I wish the NBA had just stayed locked out and run the whole friggin' league into the ground.

    No-hitters and perfect games are different. That's defense to the extreme which is fine.

    Everybody wants to see missed tackles, poor coverage, sieve goaltenders etc? I doubt that - I want to see good defense.

    I agree. And I'm not saying they want to see poor defense, just big plays on offense and defensive scoring plays.

    Exactly.

    Nobody wants to sit around and watch good defense. That goes for any sport. Nobody wants to watch a 1-0 baseball game. Nobody wants to watch 1-0 hockey games. Nobody wants to watch 75-70 basketball games. And nobody wants to watch 6-3 football games. Well, I take that back. The purists for their respective sport, love to see it. But other than that, the guys sitting out in the outfield want to see homerun balls flying into the seats, the guys in the dawg pound want to see kick returns and 95 yard TD passes, the guys in the court seats want to see dunks and three's, and the guys on the glass want to see pucks flying into the nets.

    I was wondering the same thing...what kind of rules do they play by? Lift, clean, and place?

    A kid on my high school golf team pours his extra gatorade and powerade on his wedges to make them tackier and spin more. When he told me about it I busted his chops about it the rest of the year.


  7. Honestly, what the hell happened? He went from arguably the best running back in the league to the worst in a matter of months. I can't even watch Titans games any more because I just cringe every time we hand him the damn ball. In the game against the Falcons right now, we're down 20-3 and he has 10 carries for 14 freakin yards. I mean c'mon! WTF!


  8. These stories are great! Hahahaha

    My first year playing I was on the 18th hole at my home course. Not OB their's a grassy area full of trees to the right, and as I do quite often, I go right and lose my ball. For some reason I great really, really, really pissed off when I lose a ball. I don't mind losing one in the water or in the woods, but when I just flat out cannot find a ball, I get f'ing pissed off. So I lose it, and it was a practice round so I don't feel like walking back to the tee so I drop one and all pissed off I hit a crappy shot and I yell "MOTHER F>>>ER!" and slam my 4 iron into the a tree and it snaps in half. To add to it, I realized I left my 7 iron back on the 17th fairway(I had thrown it and forgot to go get it), so I go back and can't remember where it went so I walked off the course two clubs down and on the verge of going to the hospital for how high my blood pressure probably was, haha. I was PISSED! All over losing a ball, lol. Three years later, I still haven't learned to control my anger and have meltdowns every so often. I've only broken two clubs since then though, haha.
