How to play sports naked


By web gangsta | Published:

According to a CNN article, there’s an AUSTRALIAN NUDE GOLF group that rents out a golf course once a year to play.

They typically don’t have an issue playing golf naked (except for that one guy who chose to carry his clubs rather than use a cart. But we digress.

The biggest revelation in this story about naked golfers is buried deep in the story content: if you’re going to row across the ocean, you’ll want to pack light – “rowing naked” is the name of the game around those parts:

One all female crew discovered that the secret to ease the physical burden of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean was to do it naked.

Skipper of the Row for Freedom team Debbie Beadletold CNN Sport that sea water seeping inside your clothes increases the friction against your skin, causing sores but rowing naked gives you the ability to dry quicker, instead of having wet clothes.

It’s because everybody knows that football – and the Super Bowl – are awesome.

How do we know?  We have proof!

The Perfect Game of Putt-Putt – it’s only happened three times since 1959

Idiots on the Miniature Golf Course
Idiots on the Miniature Golf Course

Rick Baird from Charlotte, North Carolina, is not an idiot, nor does he play “miniature golf”. 

He plays Putt-Putt, and he’s really good at it.

Web Watch knows you’re confused — isn’t putt-putt golf and miniature golf the same thing?  No, dear reader, it isn’t.  Putt-Putt is a franchised company that defines a standard set of putting challenges that will be mainly the same from one Putt-Putt location to another.  Consistency is important here, and putting is a true skill to be showcased.

Miniature golf, on the other hand, is the one with windmills, gorillas, fake blue water, tunnels, obstacles, and other entertainment stuff scattered across the putting surface and environment.  Definitely not the same thing.

10 Things You Don’t Know About… Golf on TV


By web gangsta | Published:

Jack Graham at Golf Digest wrote a list of 10 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT GOLF ON TV back in 2004. I’m sure most of these are still valid.  Here are a few of the items that were raised – go read the article for the others.

  • Only half the shots you see are actually live.
    The commentators won’t tell you which shots are live and which are taped, and taped shots that are called by on-course announcers have the play-by-play done live on-air while the tape is played, by memory.
  • We know the hole truth.
    Some hole locations will work better for TV while others are more difficult to work with.  The TV producers will try to suggest to the tour officials which positions would be better suited for a televised schedule, and hopefully the course decisions will take those suggestions into account when planing hole locations.
  • We fiddle with the leader board.�
    Big names playing in the tournament go to the top of the chart, for more visibility.
  • You’ll learn much more if you watch on a weekday.
    During the week, announcers have more time to talk as the tournament’s storylines haven’t been developed yet.
  • Want to get on TV?  It’s easy.
    All TV producers want is an eye-catching gallery.  Cute babies always work, as does hovering around the player’s wives or girlfriends.
  • We miss plenty of shots, but none of Tiger’s.
    Because everyone wants to watch Tiger.
