Reality Check

Jim,

Your ‘steroids in frisbee golf’ cartoon is an absolute a riot. This was especially great for me, because my wife and I (along with many others in the area) are very much into frisbee golf (or ‘disc golf’) and compete regularly in competitive tournaments. The Cincinnati area is actually a hotbed for the sport (18 courses in the region). There are even some ‘touring pros’ who make a living (albeit modest) playing in tournaments.

The irony of your cartoon is that one of these ‘major’ tournaments was in Columbus this past weekend and there were actually murmurings of steroids in regards to some of these guys who can throw 600+ feet. No serious allegations were made (thank heavens). The game has only been around since the 70s, and is regarded as merely a ‘stoner sport’ by many. But for those of us who really love playing and want to see it get bigger-it is awesome to see any references to it in major media. Your cartoons are always good-but this one really hit home for me. Thanks and keep it up!

Ben


Ben,

Amazing! Once again life is crazier than cartoons. I thought I’d found a ridiculous situation, only to learn that reality has beaten me to it!

Jim

Jim,

He's exactly right. Frisbee golf is an amazing sport and I'm glad that you made a cartoon on it. Thanks!

I concur on how awesome it is that Frisbee golf made it into the media. Ben is absolutely right, Cincinnati is blessed with some extremely high quality courses. And get this, most everywhere it is free to play! A simple $30 investment in some discs and you have hours of fun ahead of you.

Aside from that, PERFORMANCE ENHANCERS IN DISC GOLF?! Ahh geeze and I used to think the sport so untainted.
