The things I do for you people.

I usually associated Frisbee® with sunny skies, sand under the toes and bikini-clad spring breakers. But, recently, I hit the campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University during a snowfall to learn the art of disc golf.

Disc golf is a fast-growing sport in which the participants throw their (Editor’s note: Due to copyright issues, I can’t use the F-brand word anymore, so let’s just call it a Disc-You-Can-Throw) toward a “hole” that’s really a pole in the ground holding up a cagey-thing that looks like it came from an Alice Cooper video. Just like golf, you want to get the disc into the hole in as few strokes as possible. So, it’s just like golf, only it’s not.
