fat tire is available in cans, but alas Bells does not go into aluminum......sad.....sad.... :'(

Those Boulevard Wheat bottles are cool.  Guiness is available in cans as well, make your own thunder cloud by getting a biodegrable plastic cup as well!

Watching the curling yersterday, (you all already know I am a geek right?) and the announcer said something that hit home with Disc Golf, all these curlers, even though they have come a long way are not highly paid professionals.  They all no matter what level, recreational, country championships, world championships, and even the olympics, if you win on sunday, you still have to go back to work on Monday.

So this olympic thing may be a great idea, but olympic sports are not really the caveat taht will make this sport a self sustaining sport for the athletes.  There are many sports along these lines, so what is the goal od disc golf becoming an olympic sport?  Who does it really help?

I found that comment extremly on point with our sport, and had me thinking all night, even whilst watching the USA play horrible hockey and win, and Canada take forever to heat up, and the RUssian power finally start to move the team, and wondering why Federov really left the NHL, cuz boy still has game.....

So if disc golf were an olympic sport (why note winter olympics?  Ice Bowl every 4 years would be HUGE!) who would it benefit, beside the manufacturers of clothing and discs?  How many curling references do you hear outside of the winter olympics?

We play all over the world, the sport is recognized, but would the olympics really give a jolt to use for local events?

Sometimes its better to shut your mouth and be presumed ignorant, than to open it and remove all doubt!

I'd suggest reading the book if you have not had a chance.  I'd loan ya my copy, I bought when it came out, but I gave it to some guy named Stancil...... ;D

Since he hadn't read it, he asked my thoughts, and I said, well I read it on the plane ride (was playing a round with him at Santa Cruz) and that I was done, he could have my copy!

I thought that was the coolest thing!! :D

I was the other TD, and it didn't happen at my course.  I typically tell people at the begining of every event, that I don't wanna DQ you, but if I catch you, I will.

So dont put me in that position, and wait and do it in your car in between rounds.  If you can't wait 3 hours, then you have a bigger problem that you need to be working on.

After reading all these posts it is quite obvious that everyone who is maliciously hating on KU is just a jealous douchebag.   You all wish your teams were as good as Kansas, whether you are rooting for Syracuse, Arkansas, and Im assuming the rest of you haters are K-State or Misery fans. As Dave Chappelle would say... "HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE!"  Quit hating so much and just be grateful that you are privileged enough to get to watch the best basketball team in the nation play twice a week on TV free of charge.  And as for what Spencer said about jim boeheim-i agree that dude is a total.....

Another fine specimen of KU excellence........boy with fans like this, its no wonder I don't care about them....

Hockey, a true sport, with real people, that make a difference.  Give Blood, Play HOCKEY!

Basketball, a true whiners sport that is single handedly part of a bigger problem with our society.  Don't believe me, look at all the thugs in the NBA, and the few select people that play.  I understand that you may not want to go that way, because this is college basketball, not pro, but all these kids wanna play in the NBA, and therefore share that same mentality.

Basketball is ok, but its not the end all beat all........I've yet to see a basketball player get 27 stitches and return to the game, but it happens regularly in hockey, who is tougher, and who is more fun to watch?  People with passion to play the game, or tall guys that jump on each other?

Bring us a hockey team Sprint Center, keep all the basketball there College level, and I'll gladly root for the tax dollars!

Yeah, but that was just one of them other Big 8 fans......some of us really just don't think the Big 8 is all that.......but then I don't start watcing college hoops until about 2 weeks from now, and then wonder why my bracket looks so dang RED!

I was really shocked to hear Carmello doesn't play for SYR any longer, next your gonnay say Wayman Tisdale doesn't play for Oklahoma, and Patrick Ewing, is he gone from Georgetown?  What happened to that Ford Guy from Texas, and the Big dude for Oklahoma Griffin, I mean he was a man amongst boys when I saw him play at the Sprint Center....James Worthy still around?  Kelly Tripucka still play for Notre Dame, and when did Digger leaev there, I saw him on ESPN the other day......But I konw that Brown is still coaching Kansas right?

Thanks kevin!

Must have been what I sent you this morning as well.  I got something from them last week from here and the Houston Flying club forum, so they are hitting all forums would be my guess....
