Report From Dallas National

For those who think this blog is nothing but self-referential bloviation and pictures of shin contusions, I offer this photo, taken by Adam, during our just-completed round at Dallas National. Here we see the 14th hole, which Adam and I both parred, for those keeping score at home. Also, for those keeping score, Adam shot a 99, and I shot — dammit — a 100. The only other item of note is that, as I type this, I’m drinking a jalapeño cucumber margarita. It is highly recommended. Also, Adam says hi.

    And now I have reason #3,976 that I hate both Adam and Tim. Thanks, Tristan.

  2. Josh Pearson says:

    And, although I confess I’ve never seen you play, you probably wouldn’t slice the ball so bad if you had a stronger grip with that right hand. IJS…

  3. Jay says:

    I’ve been next to Tim at the urinals. His right hand grip is just fine Josh.

  4. jrp says:

    hard not to when you hear “unzip…splash”

  5. what? says:

    When did Tim crap in the urinal?

  6. jrp says:

    not sure why i said that, as i’ve never shared a stall with Tim

    now Sen. Craig and his wide stance on the other hand…

  7. Idunno says:

    “jalapeño cucumber margarita” You know how I know you’re gay?

  8. mm says:

    Talk about burying the lead..

    1) You got to play Dallas National? I hate you both.

    2) Jalapeno cucumber margarita? Was that a dare?

  9. Jay says:

    @ Bethany

    I asked

  10. Bethany says:

    Is that a guy thing? Do all guys ask about grip and release at urinals?

    I’m weirdly curious now.

  11. Paul says:

    That course deserves better. You know it. I know it. And the American People know it.

  12. jrp says:

    Bethany, you really don’t want to know what men talk about when there aren’t any women around.

    And I’m not at liberty to share it anyway, as it falls under Guy/Guy privilege.

  13. Adamundo says:

    I thank all of you who just contributed to a much needed afternoon laugh!

  14. mm says:

    @Bethany: No, we don’t. We don’t ask, we don’t tell, we don’t make conversation, we don’t make eye contact. At least most of us don’t.

  15. Bobby Ewing says:

    Grip it and rip it takes on a whole new meaning. Damn you guys. I am as jealous as the French Men’s swim relay team.

  16. Drew says:

    Just say no to that hat!

    Oy vey!

  17. Topham Beauclerk says:

    jerks. that is all.

  18. Sal says:

    You know how I know you’re gay? You wear powder blue hats during golf.

  19. amanda says:

    The hat is HOT. I thought you were mortally wounded…

  20. Vaudeville says:

    Faaat maaan in a liiiittle HA-aaat…

  21. Tim Rogers says:

    Two things I’d like to add about our round. The first is this pic of Adam hitting out of the salad. Love the effort. The other thing I’d like to add is that I bogied nine holes, yet still shot a 100. Just think about that for a minute. Or don’t and I’ll do the math for you: that Dallas National is a helluva tough course. (PS: If that shot of Adam looks familiar, take a look at this pic of Adam taken a year ago. Same shirt. Same hole. About 30 feet to the right.)

  22. Josh Pearson says:

    I give Adam an “A” for effort, a “B+” for the white belt, a “C-” on the hair and an “F” for the lack of tan on those white calves. He needs to get out more…

  23. Nate says:

    You know how else we know they, or at least Adam, are gay? He’s got streamers at the end of his clubs. IJS. (See Tim’s latest picture)

  24. Jason says:

    The purpose of this outing is what? How do I work at D Magazine? No mention of the Dallas National Burger or Fish Tacos at the turn. WEAK reporting.
