"It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling."Norm MacDonald on Mark Twain
"Golf is a good walk spoiled."Norm MacDonald on Mark Twain
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."Norm MacDonald on Hunter S. Thompson
"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."Norm MacDonald on Henry David Thoreau
