For Ryan’s birthday, he asked for this from his parents:
This little $260.00 (not including service fee) contraption is a GPS system for … golf. And golf only. It downloads courses and tells you how far away the green is located.
Will, Sam, Blair and other Hil Street golfers … can you please explain this to me? People have been playing golf since the 12th century. I always assumed that Ryan and those before him found the green by using their eyes. Isn’t that why a flag is on the green? For visual identification purposes?
Ryan has never gotten lost on a golf course, even though he is usually drinking heavily. What is the point of a GPS system for golf?
I’ll try and relate this frivolous item to some of my hobbies:
1. Shopping – Would this device take me straight to the clearance rack or tell me where clothes my size were located?
2. Yoga-ing – Would this device tell me exactly how not-straight my leg is and what angle my triangle pose should be?
3, Blogging – Would this device tell me exactly how angry Ryan is going to be after reading this post-o-mockery?
3. Eating – For that price, would this device make me dinner?
