From Jeremy Thornton: A little something I wrote to their long winded empty apology..... It's pretty amazing that your show has poorly attempted to make an upcoming sport such as Disc Golf a Joke. You must've struggled for weeks to try to figure out how to pick on the small kid at school. im very experienced at the picking on part, believe me it takes hardly anytime at all. especially since said "small" kid makes it so easy. Here's a real challenge for your impotent writers. Try a show that rips on the "sport" of poker or the "sport" of fishing. been done many times. These sportsmen make millions of dollars lying and working off of blind luck. Our top (actual) ATHLETES only make $100,000 a year traveling the World playing tournaments in front of crowds in the 40 country's that have disc golf courses. We were are on the cover of Forbes Magazine for being the fastest growing sport in the World (15% a year over the last 18 years). Our sport is given land from parks departments that has become high crime rate areas that police can't afford to patrol. The two pieces of land that we've been given in our town have become city parks again. They don't have trash and needles all over them and if somebody shady shows up the police get called and they get asked to leave. Disc golf is a very friendly family sport. I've seen 4 generations of family on the course playing together. at around $10 a disc to play and our courses for the most part being free. Our sport is perfect for all family's who need healthy activities that don't include watching boring television programs.

BTW - learn more about frolf here (pay attention to item #4).


just another reason why it shouldnt be called Frolf. i had a good hearty laugh at that one. i had to read a second time to make sure i understood it correctly. i need to go find a broad thats into frolfing :lol:

I played that hesitantly, ready to groan but was pleasantly surprised. Not too bad for a couple of world champ frolfers.

I don't want to see the episode, the series, ABC, their replies or the Facebook fiasco, but the reply from Val and Nate was classic. :D I'm going back to fill a glass of water.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

out of context, nate and val's reply means nothing. it can't be classic, unless you juxtapose it against something else. unless you believe classic things can stand alone on their own merit. i bet non-disc golfers love this video.

It is a classic against the backdrop of this thread. And in itself as it is. The video is not in any way restricted from being a classic no matter what self imposed restrictions you place upon it. Bah. i reject your artificial and irrelevant boxing attempt. The video does not suite your classification it goes beyond you and your understanding apparently. That's all i'm gonna say about that.

Jsun is correct Jr sir.

If you havent seen the original apology then you really can't call the reply a classic.

you sound like Alan from the hangover. "driving drunk!! CLASSIC!!"
