How you know you're a disc golf addict....
« on: March 14, 2014, 04:27:04 PM »
This morning I woke up and the tips of my index and middle finger were numb. I figured I slept on my hand funny, but after 15 or 20 minutes they were still numb. Instead of wondering what was wrong with it, I just worried how it would affect my throwing. Could have been a serious medical issue in need of attention but I just thought "well, there goes my disc golf life."






Proud disc golf addict since August 2013!

You know you are one when almost all of your computer passwords are 'discgolf' or disc related.

You also know you are one, when after throwing your favorite disc in the lake, you have to take a moment of silence for the dearly departed, and try not to cry.

You know you are one, when falling asleep at night, in your mindseye, you do play by play on the round that day.

You know you are an addict when you wake yourself up at night with a great follow through

You know you are when you running a chest cold and still play two rounds at Waterworks

You know you are an addict when you play Angry Birds and right before the birds hit your left side of your torso jerks like you are snapping a disc.

To wake up in the middle of the night, to sit up as if you just lost a breath, realizing your at home, it's 3 am and your not at the course and you didn't make that ace. The first ten seconds you think "Did I just do that?" Then.....you it hits you. F&^#^&K it was only a dream!!!!!!  Your crushed, can not get back to sleep after tossing and turning for several hours, you get up and go play before you have to work....   Then your an addict.
Success is not something you run after, but something you ATTRACT by the person you become

You know you're addicted when you refer to your birthday gift of a set of four prepackaged discs as lighting a crack pipe...and now when you're in the area you slide by DD or DGW just to see what's in the used bin or new on the racks. 
"I sure hope The Nailer™ doesn't find it..."

Put some more torque on it kid!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nYm-LYrJQA

Yep, nearly every night for the last 16 years and 9 months.   :)

When you have disc golf stickers on your laptop lid and or on your car.

When you have never used discs laying in several big tubs.

When your discs for disply are older than some current disc golfers.
 
When you name your child after a disc. And vice versa!!

When you take any object not remotely like a disc and begin putting into boxes or trash cans. ( Mainly while at work!!)

All but one of these are true for me.

When you check the DG websites so often you get frustrated when there is nothing new.

    If you have ever hung a disc on the wall and all your friends think it’s cool.
    You have caused at least 3 of your friends to become addicted to the sport as well.
    You try to figure out how many golf discs you can buy with your next paycheck.
    When you miss a putt and whip out 5 more putters from your bag and throw each of them from the same spot just to prove to your friends that you could have made it.
    You beg the course pro to put lights on the course so you can play all night too.
    You have ever talked to your discs while they are in flight.
    You buy a membership in a gym, so you can improve your distance.
    You introduce new discs to your other discs.

    Your wife can’t get you to wash dishes but you come home from a tourney and empty the sink to wash your discs.
    You think of discs (rather than the animal/reptile) when you hear words like roadrunner, cobra, etc…

    When you have a Disc Golf folder in My Documents
    If your dog is trained to NOT catch a frisbee
    Having “file folders” in my disc bag for each disc yet I got papers sitting everywhere in my room. So…you might be addicted to DG if you have more “file folders” in your disc bag than your office.
    If your typical comment on a fart is “nice out.”
    If a pringles top is at least a 20 minute distraction
    You have read this entire list!

When your backseat looks like a traveling disc shop, and you're excuse is "Well, I wasn't sure what the weather would be like, and I like to be prepared".  ;D

Ok, 1 more I just discovered. You're a disc golf addict when you have a faded ring on the back pocket of your jeans. Not from a can of chew, but from a mini!
