I have a couple photographic orphans needing a home.
The first image is of Anita playing Ladder Golf in her front lawn after hosting an annual pinewood derby with her husband, Rob. I’d never heard of Ladder Golf – a cousin of lawn darts and bocce – but I guess it’s big in the midwest. Go figure. Today I was reminded about this image while watching SportsCenter. They listed the top 3 popular sports for tailgaters at football games and Ladder Golf was one. Hm.
The other homeless image is from the poorly-named Oklahoma nightclub, Peckerheads. It was the only place open after the prison rodeo, a discothèque carved out from a former car dealership. While getting carded – are you kidding me? – I noticed kids playing beer pong to the side – with killer light and sweet color. SFD! ™
It was the first time I’ve seen people play beer pong without paddles. Players would simply toss a ball towards a cup of beer. Doesn’t seem very sporting, but I want the record to state that I have nothing to do with the rules at Peckerheads.
Out here in Portland, we play with paddles. I mentioned that and the kids in McAlester looked at me like I was from, well, Oregon.
