I have decided to create a game that will appeal to rich white guys with way too much money. It will appeal to them as it is a combination of two other RWG pastimes, namely golf and polo, hence the name "Polf."
The idea is similar to golf in that a ball is hit toward a hole located some distance away. The difference is that this is not a matter of acheiving a low score as much as to do this as quickly as possible, from horseback. The holes will have to be quite a bit largert to accomodate a polo ball. This is probably going to have to be a team sport, with team members whacking their own ball towatrd their other team members closer to the hole, and possibly sending the opposing ball into a water hazard.
I imagine the goal will be to get through an 18 hole course as quickly as possible, with the winners then getting to spend a longer time drinking martinis in the clubhouse after, since winners and losers will have to leave at the same time. One of the rules, you know...
Any thoughts?

Polf?
Why not Golo?

Yeah, Rich White Guys, them sonsabitches, they freakin' own everything AND have a place to keep it. One of those RWGs, a surgeon, stole a favorite girlfriend of mine just last year.

&*%$## @#(*&^ RWGS!!!!!...sure glad I'm not one.

Wait. Let me rethink that.

Thanks George
I'd look into making an underwater version, if I were you.

Though as George Carlin once reflected about water polo, "it's extremely cruel to the horses."

The only problem...
Well, there are two. Getting the horse to stand still while you putt, and the horses tearing up the greens (and pooping in the sand traps, of course!).

Funny stuff, man.

I hope we don't know the same doctor, scrib! &&*$#*^-^%* (that's code) laugh

Two thoughts...
1. Where I live, horses are for racing but no figure 8 tracks. The RWGs play golf and own/ride really expensive customized Harley-Davidson's which they only ride on sunny days in the summer. Rich White Wimps? Would Moto-Golo or Moto-Polf work?

2) For Gary The Rocket Scientist: Years ago while playing Star Force, some friends and I were wondering if it would be possible to play football inside a rotating cylindrical space station in orbit. Of course, there would be just one goal line and goal post and the fans would sit at the ends of the cylinder. If the cylinder had enough spin to generate about 1G, would one team be running up hill? Could one throw a football straight up hard enough that it would pass the mid-point and come straight down to receiver who was directly overhead in the cylinder?

There's gotta be a back story to this POLF idea
Ok, Randall,


What sparked this POLF idea? RWG steal your girl? Open up, it's better out than in. I've been through marriage and post-divorce counseling and I've dated a full blown shrink and a psyhotherapist. It might help. You're among friends here.

John

No back story here... Just a case of wanting to BE a RWG, and figure the best way to become one is to get money from other RWG's. My wife has expesive tastes, and I would love to indulge both hers and my own dreams. I figure the best way to separate a RWG from his cash is to come out with something so absurdly expensive and useless that they HAVE to have it. I figured a game would be just about right, and this one is as ridiculous as they get.

You may be onto something.
BTW, I dated a psychotherapist not psy-HOT-herapist. That may be a Freudian slip. Psy-HO-therapist is not.

True story: Awhile back, I was standing behind couple late 20s/early 30s guys in a bar and one of them was on a beer driven rant about Old Rich White Guys..."They got the money, they got the credit, they got the cool cars AND NOW THEY GOT VIAGRA!!!

They also have beach front condos in pleasant winter climates and 550 acre farms from my experience in addition to big homes in nice neighborhoods.

Man, I'm with ya on the wanna be an RWG.
