Oh, and it should be noted that Reusse has a problem with the very term "disc golf". It's Frisbee Golf, dammit. Except (as Reusse implicitly acknowledges later in his column when he mentions Innova discs) Frisbee is a brand name. Discs are not all made by Frisbee, especially the ones used for disc golf.
And it wouldn't be Fatty Patty if he didn't use the occasion to knock soccer, for no fucking reason at all. Calling it "disc golf" you see, isn't about having an accurate name--it is to separate the elitist players from the riff-raff, Blue-Collar, all American Joes that Reusse represents: "That's the name the aficionados have given to Frisbee golf -- much like American soccer weenies refer to futbol."
Oh, fuck you, Patrick. Soccer is called Futbol or football everywhere in the world--because it is played with the feet. How could that be any simpler? Do you not like it because it sounds too much like America Football, a game so poorly named that the only people who use their feet in contact with the ball are the punter and place kicker? How fucked tired is that supposed riposte? People playing with discs aren't going to hurt anyone. People calling them discs aren't going to hurt anyone. People who call soccer "futbol" aren't going to hurt anyone. Responding to imaginary threats against his lifestyle--that's what Patrick Reusse does best. Because that is all he ever does.
