The FreeBirdee Story(It’s really a story)
Hootie the golfing owl, loved flying over golf courses and heckling golfers with his baritone voice that sounded like a foghorn. He got a hoot out of it every time a golfer would point a finger in the air to him. He would dive bomb and buzz across slow player’s heads as they addressed their ball. He loved spending time on the golf course. Recently, he found courses once packed with golfers, were now only scattered with them.
Hootie trekked all over Facebook. Hootie tried in vain to connect with golfers he recognized from his golf course antics. He only found three golfers. Each golfer loved golf, but for one reason or another found it difficult to make time to play.
Their playing days were now limited to La-Z-boy naps during Ben Crane’s pre-shot routine and late nights watching YouTube videos of Natalie Gulbis.
One golfer was fired from his job for posting on Facebook, ”Cutting out of work early to play golf.” One month later, the Golfing Gods closed down the bank where he had worked.
The next golfer used to played country club golf. He quit his membership when the economy forced the club to take the tanning machine out of the men’s locker room. He was now limited to swinging in his basement under six foot high ceilings. Always the optimist he beamed with joy that he was no longer over-swinging and getting sunburned.
The last golfer was a wise old man of few words. He lost his voice twice in his life, both times happening on the golf course. The first time from yelling, “FORE!!!” on every hole (he suffered from a fruitful slice) and the second time when he accidentally passed gas during his own downswing.
One day, the wise old man and Hootie video talked, person to owl on Skype, the old man whispered two cryptic words that ignited the desire in Hootie to free golfers from themselves: FREE BIRDEE.
