We were about 5 holes into a relaxing round of frisbee golf today when things took a horrible turn. Coming out of the mall parking lot and shooting for the flagpole in front of the AmeriSuites hotel, drum tech Sean Lynde drastically overestimated how far he could huck the disc and made an ill-advised attempt to clear a water hazard in just one stroke. The disc landed in a pool of algae, right in the middle of the scummiest pond this side of Skokie. We made him get it. It was the good disc.
