remind me to bore you with my theory on why most bands suck after their debut album the next time we throw.....

David Byrne performing only Talking Heads songs produced by Eno. That was pretty good. The show put on could rival anything the Talking Heads would do, although what do I know, I wasn't even born when Remain in Light came out.

Pavement reunion last year was special. No albums though (and thankfully so).

I wouldn't compare Local 101's tournaments to any of those great artists.

I think our tournaments (like our scores) get better with age though, so *hi five*. :: ... more

I didnt mean 'on hiatus'. Damn spell check. I meant 'in Hades'. Haha.

I went to some Phish reunion tour. Sound like more drama in the Van Halen reunion thing...

hmmm, wives and kids keeping ya from disc....somewhat familiar with that scenario.

Also, on a side note: Name me one band that went on "hiatus" and returned stronger than before? I can't come up with one, usually they return for a money grab of a tour, a weak, fat, old version of their former prime. I offer the return of Van Halen as the latest example.

The problem is all these guys have wives and babies, Peter. The 101 is in hiatus like a quality rock band.

Appreciate the response. I didn't think they were very old but I thought the stamp was pretty cool and picked em up.

Thanks.

i have bb aviars from the spring before last with that 101 stamp. purportedly it was limited edition one time pressing. i think that part was a scam. the aviars might have only been orange and yellow though. either way dont listen to fortch. he would have no idea.

That looks like a challenger from our last order. Only a few months old.

I recently picked up a pair of these. Just curious about how old they were. Someone told me they thought it was one of the first 101 stamps since its not tourny related.

Careful there, Brooke. Don't sell my ability to ruin any partnership short or I'll have to show up and prove you wrong.

Agreed Brooke, that is the great thing about leagues and the lower stakes more casual environment is a great way to introduce newer/less skilled players to competitive golf and the etiquette that goes along with that. If you get upset about $5 lost at a doubles league then you are probably in it for the wrong reasons.. I treat it as a bonus when I walk away with some cash.

That said, Local 101 Saturday doubles does cater to the more experienced player just due to the regular group (and th ... more

I disagree completely with that comment. Doubles leagues are the perfect environment to promote our sport to less skilled players. My first experience playing competitive disc golf was at the Kensington league. I had never played for money before. My partner that day was Gale Vaughn. Needless to say we had a blast and that inspired me to play more organized golf.

And now I get to kick all your asses with whatever partner I get.....;)
