A Poem
#1
According to Golf World magazine, the average golfer loses two golf balls per round for a worldwide total of approximately 2,465,752 every day. Worried about running out? Don't be. Companies like Titleist are working hard to ensure that never happens. Titleist makes 1.2 million golf balls each day.

Now enjoy the poem, below.


In My Hand I Hold A Ball,

White And Dimpled, Rather Small.
Oh, How Bland It Does Appear,

This Harmless Looking Little Sphere.

By It's Size I Could Not Guess,

The Awesome Strength It Does Possess.

But Since I Fell Beneath Its Spell,

I've Wandered Through The Fires Of Hell.

My Life Has Not Been Quite The Same,

Since I Chose To Play This Stupid Game.

It Rules My Mind For Hours On End,

A Fortune It Has Made Me Spend.

It Has Made Me Yell, Curse And Cry,

I loathe it, And Want To Die.

It Promises A Thing Called Par,

If I Can Hit It Straight And Far.

To Master Such A Tiny Ball,

Should Not Be Very Hard At All.

But My Desires The Ball Refuses,

And Does Exactly As It Chooses.

It Hooks And Slices, Dribbles And Dies,

And Even Disappears Before My Eyes.

Often It Will Have A Whim,

To Hit A Tree Or ! Take A Swim.

With Miles Of Grass On Which To Land,

It Finds A Tiny Patch Of Sand.

Then Has Me Offering Up My Soul,

If Only It Would Find The Hole.

It's Made Me Whimper Like A Pup,

And Swear That I Will Give It Up.

And Take To Drink To Ease My Sorrow,

But The Ball Knows ... I'll Be Back Tomorrow.

AND READ THIS ONE LAST PARAGRAPH !

Stand proud you noble swingers of clubs and losers of balls. A recent study
found the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found
golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means, on average,
golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.
Kind of makes you proud. You're like... a hybrid!

I hate golf for I will never be as good as I would like to be.. But when one retires if you do not have something to keep you active you just wither and die. Also, overseas I have to play with a bunch of Brits... I really do like taking their money just because they are Brits although any nationality will do ! 

We have returned to the states to see family and play golf. The first time I went out with some of my old friends and we played.. After the game was finished and I had won a little $$ I did ask when the next "friends helping sky727 would be held"... I have not heard such uncivilized comments in a long time... it was good to see how much I was appreciated, they even volunteered to buy me a ticket back home !

I may need new friends !
