Jerm & Nate did a great job imo. My only issue was the skipping of shots & entire holes, which was unavoidable given the time allotted. I think the product was about as good an introduction to the sport as it could’ve been.

Hopefully Emporia is prepared for the massive influx of disc golf tourists headed their way.

I would be interested in seeing the numbers compared to say the WNBA.

I saw the weed commercial last night and busted out laughing. Some exec at CBS knows his audience.
Wow. You do know you're talking about a competition who's signature event is held in a venue called a half-"pipe"?

Again. Player perspective only there. There's more to disc golf than players.

Thank you for your service, Mr. Wilson!!
And a local here in Texas. That was Arlington's Veteran's Park where he was throwing, repping his ADGA shirt. Come down and play the Veteran's Park Open Nov.6-8, 2020.

Jerm and Nate did do a great job! Not at all what I'm saying.

I'm simply saying that I'm floored that the network that showed the coverage has a guy on camera who plays disc golf, has done disc golf videos and knows the sport wasn't used.

Him as the play by play and then Jerm and Nate doing color - being a little more like themselves - would have been great.

It's not called a half-pipe because of anything drug related.

See where I'm going ...
I would believe that the disc capital of the world would at least manufacture discs and not have them made in say Sweden.

You know like the Rose capital of the World Tyler, Texas that produces, cultivates, and processes Roses.

Literally because it's half of a full-pipe.

Same reason they call it a quarter-pipe.
