Default Disc Golf Talked About On a Cubs Broadcast

From dgpromo

You are mentioned during Cubs Broadcast !!!
Hello Valkyrie Kid,

The Cubs game announcer mentions you and your nickname (5/8/19) during the broadcast. (And does a short blurb on disc golf.)

It is currently on youtube Cubs Disc Golf

Record this....congrats.

Some history.

My son, Quinn Wolcott, is a Major League Baseball umpire. My smart ass son in law, who is a federal agent, loves to dish on me about my disc golf courses played addiction and about how all disc golfers are dope smoking hippies, etc. etc. Although, I occasionally get him out to a course with me.

Anyway, as a big joke, he added to Quinn’s Wikipedia page that Quinn’s father is a legend in the Disc Golf Community. Quinn was recently working the plate during a Cubs game and the broadcasters had actually done some research, checking his wikopedia page and commented on Quinn’s father, the Valkyrie Kid being a legend. (If they could only see me throw).

Anyway, they discussed disc golf for part of an inning, actually showed a basket, etc. Quinn sent me the Facebook link but I have no idea how to post the link. Maybe one of you can post the link.

Sounds like another one of us going on about how we despise poorly designed courses that incorporate playgrounds in the design. It's obvious here that the playground should indeed be moved.
