Our Readers Are Bangin’ The Chains

Posted in Polls, Useless Information on October 7, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

Here are the results from our recent poll asking our readers “How Many Aces Do You Have?”

The King of The “Pink Ace”?

Posted in Humor / Comics, Uncategorized, Useless Information with tags on August 12, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

We all know a few disc golfers who “pad” their ace stats by camping on hole #1 short at Morley. Bless their hearts.

Our investigative team’s extensive research uncovered the term for this. It is called a “Pink Ace” or a “Cubby Ace”. The trusted internet defines this as follows a) an ace where you sit at a short hole and empty your bag trying for an ace, preferably with a camera running or  b) an ace on a hole you could nail with a beach Frisbee. Both seem fitting.

"Cubby"

Who is this man and what has Carl “Cubby” Cubbedge done to deserve this term?

We’ll provide these links and let you decide if he deserves the title “King of the Pink Ace”.

(in our opinion he looks like a nice guy who needs a big hug!)

Ten Annoying Things #8: “Tossers”

Posted in Disc Golf Lingo, Humor / Comics, Useless Information on August 5, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

noun (adj).  tó-su(r) – 
any disc golfer having not earned the right to empty their bag on hole #19 at Morley (against course etiquette anyway). This “right” is set aside for those that actually possess the physical ability to reach (“park”) or surpass the current pin position(s) on hole #19 with their drives.

“Tossers” will confuse most of the following attributes as justification to empty their bag…
– Many “play bands” on their quad-straps
– Their tee shot (distance in feet) = (their weight) +15ft
– A full Innova Competition bag or larger
– “Brand spankin new” discs
– Own one or more Discraft Nuke(s)
– Are wearing a Huk-Lab or DD hat or shirt

(Now so no one takes offense, this writer can 1) barely out throw his weight 2) has 2 new Innova Destroyers and 3) owns a Huk-Lab tek-dry shirt. I know my place.)

If you are still not sure if you are a “Tosser” listen for feedback. If you hear “WOWs! after your throws,  you’re good to go. If there is silence or mumbling coming from behind as you walk of the pad, you probably are a “Tosser”.

(note: file under humor / laugh at yourself once in a while)

Taking It A Little Too Far?

Posted in In The News, Useless Information, Video with tags , on October 27, 2009 by morleyfieldsd

With all do respect to the “Father of Disc Golf” (“Steady” Ed Headrick), we submit this video which feels more appropriate in a Twilight Zone episode than Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

In case this seems like a good idea to you, you can purchase his “memorial” discs here
