    To me it's really more stupid than offensive, even though Latinos here in Albq make fun of each other for the way they talk....

    By this standard, all college sports should be abandoned.

    Not at all. Cities aren't covered with a bunch of sprawling, space hogging, water draining facilities (often private) for other "college" sports. Most baseball fields and basketball courts for example are located in open public areas that all families can enjoy........ for free! Plenty of public tennis courts and swimming pools. You can partake in gymnastics and track practically anywhere. Golf, not so much. Golf is suited only for a certain class of people.

    There are plenty of public tracks that don't cost a fortune to play that are not for a certain class of people. I think the attitude that it's only an elitist sport further discourages minorities from participating.

    While I see your point about space and water, I've never seen a tennis court that supports wildlife. The public track I play has tons of it.. owls, hawks, rabbits, coyotes, snakes etc. so there are environmental positives, imo

    I'll just agree to disagree with you on golf's merits.

    Yep, as it should be. At least George agrees with me...

    Oh yeah. Talking to dedicated Christians especially evangelicals is like trying to reason with a two year old.

    If they have their mind made up about something they’ll always find some twisted logic to rationalize their position.

    Man kills children.

    It’s just part of God’s plan they’re in a better place now.

    President rapes women.

    We are all sinners. God always forgives.

    Unless it’s a black man raping a white woman. God does not apparently forgive that.
