The best laid Foundations

508

The Celtic FC Foundation are holding a golf day in April to raise funds for autism in Scotland, the first such day the Foundation have organised.  When planning for the event, Leftybhoy, Brogan Rogan, Harry Brady, Tyneside No.1, me, Thomas and Jane from the Foundation, and Foundation chief exec, Tony Hamilton, wondered if and how we would be able to get winning Ryder Cup player, Stephen Gallacher, to help out.

Over two meetings we discussed strategy on how to get to Stephen, how to hone our pitch, explain the autism work, so that we might be able to get a pin flag signed, or something like that.  Two meetings!

Tony Hamilton was a Firhill last night when a Celtic fan spoke to him:

Celtic fan: “Are you the guy organising the golf day?”

Tony (thinking he’s about to sell a ticket): “Aye”.

Celtic fan: “I’m a golf pro, I might be able to help out with auction stuff.”

Tony (now worried about that ticket sale): “Great.  Which course are you pro at?”

Celtic fan: “No course, I’m on the European tour.  I’ll leave stuff with Stevie.”

Tony (confused what that means and wondering why this guy doesn’t have a regular job in a golf shop): “That’s very kind of you.”

After the game Tony checks his phone and sees a message from Tyneside No.1:

“Ryder Cup winner Stephen Gallacher in stand tonight. Have you rugby tackled him re our Golf Day yet?”

Tony’s been staring at a wall ever since.

Information on the golf day, complete with gratefully received supporting items from Stephen Gallacher, available here.

    I heard a similar story about a guy at a sports dinner, a big football fan but who had been to Murrayfield to see Scotland beat England in 2000.

     

     

    Showing off that he had been to a rugger game, he said to the guy next to him – “Were you at the rugby against England??”

     

     

    Guy says “Aye, I was there”

     

     

    Fan “Where were you sitting?”

     

     

    Guy “I was on the pitch. I’m Andy Nicol, I was Scotland captain”

    I’m actually teed off with it …!!

  6. forget politics, sevco status, referendums, board, team selections, worst game ever,

     

     

    the most divisive subject is the YAE OR NAE to do you like golf.

  7. It’s next race is going to be the derby (donkey) for four year old (children) at Ayr (beach).

  8. Hoop hoop Hooray on

    Horsetalk and golftalk on a football forum.

     

     

    Presume some of you had a right wedge on it

  9. Saint stoves,

     

     

    Nae, I hate golf. When I am on my 5th putt I think “no matter how bad i am, i know things can only get worse”

     

     

    And as for watching it ; there is more entertainment watching paint dry.

     

    Golf should be oonfined to x-box and play station. Or the Wi at a push.

     

     

    HH.

  10. Wits will hopefully iron out all these rubbidge nags.

     

     

    He’s a fair way from being the worst tipster.
