Wow.

The closest I ever came to that kind of stupidity is kettlebell snatches in my basement, I wasn't paying attention to the rafters and smacked one pretty good. No damage though but it did make a racket.

What a maroon. Or moran, as you guys are so fond of saying. Very funny stuff, and the same advice applies if you are flailing your sheets - my dad has a scar from 11 stitches in his chest because he was fluffing the sheets and hit the light fixture.

I noticed his grips were worn; I can put some Stick'em on there...it's my fault.

What if the free-swinging thing above you is a giant rat? Can you swing at it then? Or what if it's something that won't shatter and slice you to pieces, like a chocolate cake?

How do you get a deep cut in your abdomen when you shatter something over your head?

I think it's much more likely that he's being physically abused by a SO and making up stupid excuses for it.

/or something...

I stayed in a bed and breakfast once that had hundreds of dolls hanging from the ceiling, watching me with thier fake doll eyes, watching.. hating me "we hate you, we hate you for sleeping here, we hate you."

/anyway, if I had a golf club I would have spent the night knocking the demonic things down.

My bet: It shattered, some fell and he caught it on his legs as he went to crouch down away from the falling glass, basically cradling it and as his went down a big chuck stabbed him.

Don't stay in hotel rooms that have chandeliers. That would fix the problem and save a couple of bucks as well.

I once ended up with 63 contusions, 22 cuts and 88 bruises after taking a full swing at a golfball in a tiled bathroom.

Good thing my roomie was home to open the door and let the ball out before it killed me.

I was hitting little foam practice balls at work a few years ago with my sand wedge.

I switched the an 8 iron and hit both of the 8' 40 watt florescent light bulbs above me in the follow through, sending little pieces of bulb (and mercury) all over the place!

THAT was a fun day!

/luckily, I got it all cleaned up before anyone came in

-Hey! What's going on in here?

-Oh, uh, I was just looking for the other half of this chandelier... there's some of it and there's some of it right there, too.

I think I know why the chandelier came down.

Brings to mind the notorious Dsiclave incident. A couple used a hotel sprinkler as an anchor point during bondage games. Sprinkler heads are not meant to bear weight as they found out. They checked out that night and soon the couple below (from NESFA) were woken up when it began raining in their room.

The question isn't why the chandelier came down -- it's whether or not they lived...

I think you should keep playing, I don't think the heavy stuff's gonna come down for a while.

To be fair, I am fat and I walk 18 regularly. And I carry my own bag. Did I mention I'm fat?

I cant wait for the steroid controversy to break. That's going to be hilarious.

/not implying tiger in particular took steroids, but apparently a lot of pro golfers are

Walk being the operative word.

I've heard someone is going to start making these:

Can we mangle that into a cliche? "Golfer practicing swing, thats a stabbing" or "Golfer practicing swing does the chandelier ....C) get all stabby"

My friend hit a 8 iron, 165 yards, off the carpet, out the sliding glass door while narrowly missing the TV, over the pond and on to the eighteenth green. Five minutes later ...

The course owners son shows up bragging about his Michigan State Golf Team days and profusely proclaims he can pull off the same shot. Nothing got broke but the ball left a hell of a blister on the wooden hand rail. We made him sign it.

/Good times

Isn't the "I hit a chandelier in my hotel room with a golf club" excuse the same one OJ used to explain the cut on his hand?

Maybe not.

Good point.

Actually, the sport of kings is starting spurious wars and giggling as the serfs die.

I was hitting golf balls off the deck of a cruise ship headed for good ol Skagway, Alaska. It was a bit cool and I was not wearing a glove and the driver is now in 200 meters of ice water. Glad it wasn't mine.
