Providing an outlet for OCD since 2004
Yes, it's the sport of the masses alright.
The reason soccer is so popular is all you need is a field, one ball, and a couple of shirts/sticks/plastic bottles to mark the goals and twenty kids can play. Golf is the same way! Plus a 100 acres of manicured lawns, $500 for clubs, and $50 in green fees - give or take $200.
tag even cheaper.
Golf, in this country, was always the game of fatcats and fatcat wannabes, I would guess. It was, after all, Bush the Younger's great-granddaddy, Herbert Walker, who created the Walker Cup, mostly because he was miffed that all the high-society attention was going to tennis because of the Davis Cup.Golf has appealed to Repugs for a long time, mostly because it has the illusion of appearing to be athletic, and it gives plenty of opportunity for private deal-making without anyone being able to hear what's being said.Plus, it gets them out of those stuffy Wall Street walnut-paneled offices and into the fresh air once in a while....
mo fresh air pulease! Engorge these white folks with mo bread, barbeque and beer and they will follow whoever yells the loudest aboutbasic family values.Vox
