It is funny, most of us who play disc golf have never heard of this show, partly because we're out playing as much as possible. I certainly haven't, as nothing worth my time has been produced on network TV in many decades. Heck, even my 16-yr-old stepdaughter and her friends, who are completely immersed in pop culture, had never heard of this show.

I would also venture to say that the people who are interested in garbage TV are not the ideal target audience for disc golf publicity, and I'm not sure why the PDGA even bothers with them. You'd get better exposure having a disc golf reference in a Broadway play.

Disc golfers acting like they're too classy is almost as funny as disc golfers' righteous indignation.

Still not the slightest sense of humor about this. Impressive, disc golfers.

Nobody could accuse JHern of acting too classy:

Too ignorant, boastful, and/or condescending, maybe, but too classy, never!

Agreed. If only I had a thousand faces and a thousand palms…

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!!"


I don't want to see it, because i'm sure it would be a letdown after reading this thread. You guys are way funnier than TV. A case of reality trumping fiction. In it's own merit the reply is classic as long as you know it is to a TV show period. No need for all the drama in between. Go Val and Nate!!!
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.

Climo...The Musical

You do Fosse, Fosse, Fosse! You do Martha Graham, Martha Graham, Martha Graham! Or Twyla, Twyla, Twyla! Or Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd! Or Madonna, Madonna, Madonna!... but you keep it all inside.
...there was a time when you were taught to find the best disc for you, not the best disc for your situation on the course, which is how they are sold now. IMO, the flight charts are basically there to point out all the stuff you dont have in your bag and why you suck.
