Finally we got some decent weather here in the Northeast. I took the day off. No email, voicemail, faxes, pages, phone calls, etc, NOTHING!

It WOULD have been an awesome day to go for a trail ride, but alas both my bikes are in pieces. One is undergoing complete restoration and the other required some serious unscheduled maintenance.

Instead of doing something I enjoy I go to the company golf outing. At least it was a scramble and we got FREE food and BEER. I'll admit I'm no Tiger Woods, but GOLF STILL SUCKS! Now we're supposed to get rain for the next four days and I'll be missing a local H/S this Sunday. Oh, and the wife just informs me I have to go to b-day party for a 2 year-old tomorrow. Hmmmm, maybe chasing a little white ball for 4 hours isn't so bad... yeah, it is.

Hopefully everyone else has a better weekend than me!

My MX instincts usually take over by the 3rd hole. Now keep in mind that when I actually go for my once-a-year "round"...and I use that term very loosely, we play for "beer a hole". Well hell, beer is the ONLY way to enjoy this game, so by the third hole it is game on. Th ecart usually somehow finds the sand traps, any suitable lip to jump the cart (ever heard how loud an electric cart loaded w/ clubs as it lands can be?) and of course the ever popular "peein' on the green" round.

We usually don't finish (the course marshall finds us) and I usually lament over the waste of beautiful terrain on silver hairs and yuppies that take their game way too serious. Then I explain how a fresh tire on prepped grass fairways w/ lush greens would be a fairly religious experience. I get accused of being a goober by another drunk goober and we all have a good time. See...golf ain't so bad :confused:

Guys,

You must understand one thing about golf, and bowling too. Neither are really a sport. It is just something to do between "Daddy Pops". Kind of like sitting around the back yard watching a bug zapper, or watching the grass grow. It gives you something to do between sips. The most important part of golf is not keeping your head down, but keeping your beer cold. Also, the golf cart was not invented to carry the golfer and his/her clubs, it was invented to carry the cooler. In that light, golf really doesn't seem that bad.

My drinking team has a bowling problem....................... :laugh:

I don't get it either. I have actually had people tell me that they see golf as a chance to get outdoors and experience nature! Gimme a break!

Yeah, it sounds to me like it is just an opportunity to drink and drive, legally.

You gotta love the new Yamaha add with the guy sitting on the bike and looking out over the fairway.

Yeah, I see the world in YZ!

That's an interesting point.....On a public golf course, can you get charged with drunk driving in a golf cart? It's motorized. Not licenced. Same as a boat, snowmobile or dirtbike.
Put a spot check on the 18th hole. That would put a dirty kink in some of the "high society" types.
Might even apply to private clubs. Can you legally drink and drive on private property?

Tigger had a cross-country track meet Saturday morning. When she got home she said that they had run on a glof coarse and the person lead them on a 4 wheeler over the coarse. She siad she thought it would be a good idea if the next time they had a meet there that I would be the one that could lead them around the golf coarse and perhaps I could do it on my motorcycle :debil: That's what I'm talking about! :aj:

Hmmm. Yesterday was 74 degrees with very little wind. It has rained here for the last week, but yesterday was unbelieveable!! It was a perfect riding day. But, I went golfing and had the time of my life. I didnt drink one beer (I never drink when I play golf)! Golf is fun!

I think you all just suck so badly at it so you cant imagine it being fun. :)

I love golf.
