The Decline of Golf

Hube is lamenting that his pastime has been in decline for 10 years.

I could never really get into golf. I had friends in high school and college that were golfers, (one even received a really bad head injury on the links) but it never clicked with me. Just like with coffee, I missed the crucial period when I should have acquired a taste for it.

I prefer the shooting sports. Target shooting gives you all the struggles with accuracy and consistency that a golf game does, but with the added fun of explosions and breakin' thangs. And some shooting skills are useful outside of the sporting context.

Let me shoot a golf game with, say, a small black powder howitser and then we'll be cooking.
