    Not like soccer. They’ve taken flopping to a new level.

    When I was in grade school my parents took in a foster kid who was a junior in high school at the time. When we moved to Piqua, I was in the second grade and Norman was a senior and he played football. One game he was laying on the ground and our coach ran onto the field to check on him. Norman looked up at the coach and asked, "How are the fans taking it?". Norman's coach would still be coaching when I played and he re-told that story a 100 times. That was more than 60 years ago so floppers have been around for ever.

    Once again. Soccer players have taken flopping to a higher level than any other sport ever.

    Back to the OP. My playing partner and I in our golf league just won the championship. I shot a net 32 with two birdies. I won’t mention the 8 I took on a par 5. Haven’t had a birdie all year. Dr. Jeckyl showed up tonight and it was awesome

    Wow, great round. It's fun when every once and a while it all falls together. Golf leagues are fun.
    I'm playing an Amateur Championship this weekend. It's a two day event. The rough is long and they have some tough pin placements.
    It's not the bridges burned that bother me but the ones that I never crossed
