"A ball is man's most disastrous invention, not excluding the wheel." -- Robert Morley.
...If there was stupider game in the world than football it was golf. The last time Sully had gone out it had taken him five or six hours to go around. Billowby kept wanting to put a tournament together. The Hi-Note Classic. Sully told him he’d show up if he could drive the cart with the keg on it. And then Billowby had talked about putting in a golf machine, of all things, but had never gotten around to it. But then he still hadn’t gotten around to filling the pothole out back. (The Misforgotten, Chapter 38.)
