Swinging The World's Longest Golf Club Looks Absolutely Ridiculous

I don’t where people come up with the ideas to do these things sober, but if you were ever wondering what the the Guinness World Record for world’s longest golf club was, the answer is 4.4m. Karsten Maas from Denmark used the club to drive the ball about 165m.

In 1966, The Angels Landed In Anaheim's Futuristic Baseball Stadium

How could the Angels call any place but Los Angeles their home? After all, the club’s name directly referred to the city, and there had been a team named the Los Angeles Angels since the first decade of the 20th Century, when the minor-league Los Angeles Looloos wisely opted for a more dignified nickname. So it’s easy to understand why, when the Angels began to voice their displeasure over their second-class citizenship at Dodger Stadium, L.A.’s political leadership scrambled to keep the team within the city limits.
