World Cup Time!!! Whoo-hoo

Now i love me some disc golf – but i loves me some soccer too.  I loves me some Fifa.  And i really loves me some world cup.  And yeah.  I love the mad bracketology of it.  It’s a tough call this year.

I will complement EA for the world cup update to FIFA 18.  It’s nice they didn’t make a throw-away stand alone game like they’ve done before.  Because those have literally always sucked.  But this time EA nailed it.  Both the local tournament and the online tournament mode are fun.  and they play well.  So I know what I’ll be doing for the next month.

Hopefully I can remember to write about it.  In the meantime, there’s always this…

How many people does it take to drive me crazy…

It reminds me of the old saying.  Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead.

So a tag challenge. How hard can that be.  A small group of disc golfers put in a de minimus amount of cash into a pot.  You have a 3 month season.  Every game the tags shuffle based upon who finished where if it’s the group  or if it’s two people just a one-on-one straight up challenge.  A push goes to the incumbent or it’s settled by the noble game of H-O-R-S-E.  You miss two regularly scheduled weekly games you drop to last.  Last game is at a predetermined course. Final winner of last game gets the pot.  Can’t miss the last game…I thought it would be easy. (Insert mom joke here)

How hard can it be?

Well let’s change all of the casual rules. Let’s do this. Let’s make it have no prize...

When dogs attack…well, not really attack per se…

It appears that one of the disc golf courses that populate the suburbs of DFW is going to be diminished.  Bear Creek (which oddly, i haven’t played) is at risk of being taken from 18 holes to 9 to make way for a dog park.  It’s how local issues go.  Prolly most disc golfers who play Bear Creek aren’t local, hence they don’t vote for the city council or mayor.  Not sure what amenities are nearby, so the tax revenue may or may not play into it.  Sounds like it doesn’t though.  And the good citizens want a dog park…and probably Trump as president. Anyways the story is below as is the online petition to save it.

And here we are again…

It’s been a long minute since I’ve blogged here.  The state of beer has only improved (summer session ales I’m looking at you), FIFA continues to be a cruel cruel mistress, the USMNT finally is getting some young talented players (just gotta cut loose all the older has-been/never-weres), and disc golf is still king.  So welcome to summer.
