So, late last night, I received a phone call from a number my cell phone didn't know, from an area code I wasn't familiar with. The guy asks if I am Mitch. Of course, I tell him that I am. He goes on to say that he pulled a disc of mine out of the river. Awesome. Turns out it was a green FLX Surge. He tells me he pulled it from the Brady course. I thought he meant the course near my in-laws house near Brady, WA. No, actually, he meant the course at Brady Park - in TEXAS!
The disc he had was the very first disc I ever won in a tourney (Gawain's last Ice Bowl). I threw it at Trojan on hole 10, thinking that I couldn't possibly flip a Surge. Apparently I was wrong, as the disc landed itself in the middle of the pond. Of the many discs I have lost out there, that was one of only two that I have ever really wanted back. I let the guy keep it, as it sounds like he belongs to a group of huckers down there that are similar to the 'Nation - they rigged a rake to help them pull discs out of the river, and then they call back the people who lost them.
Though there is no way I can accurately pin this on Brian, it seems like he would be the most likely culprit in my disc somehow ending up in Texas. However, whoever was responsible for that, thanks, ass.
I will now resume trying to stay out of local disc politics...
