As impulse purchases go, it was a doozey.

April 19, 2010

The golf bag I drew is based on my own golf bag.  When I was in college I played quite a bit of golf when weather permitted.  Because my friends and I were poor college students, we couldn’t afford to rent clubs and I was the only person who owned a set (a wonderful present from my parents).  This was a problem.  The local course didn’t allow two players to share a set of clubs let alone a foursome.  Our solution:

We each learned to play with three clubs.

My “set” consisted of the putter, a nine iron, and a five iron.  I actually didn’t do too badly.  The original five iron was broken/replaced by one of my friends early on.  He replaced it with a used $8 five iron.   A used children’s $8 five iron.  A used children’s five iron that was also quite blackened and burned from being used repeatedly as a fire poker. (really)

Nevertheless, I can still hit fairly straight and consistent shots of almost 200 yards with my old, used, child-sized, fire poker.  Too bad it’s the only consistent thing in my golf game.

Intimidating in the ring.

Hmmmm.

I like the idea on this one, but I’m not that happy with the painting.  It looks pretty rushed.  Probably because it was.  Oh well.

Now it’s ultimate frisbee.

The term “ultimate frisbee” is a misnomer.  Adding an exciting descriptor doesn’t really make a sport any more impressive.  If it did, everyone would be playing extreme horseshoes and ultra bocce.
