(calling out golf players)

BLURT 24: Those who play football are called “football players”. Hardwood bouncers of orange spheres are called basketball players. Heck, if you bet on horse racing, you’re a horse player. Yet when I asked my bride if she remembered who Tiger Woods is, and she indignantly answered, “Of course, he’s a golf player!” she was right and she was, in sporting syntax, so very wrong. And why is that? Is golf the only game like this, and should this make me dislike golf even more?

And what’s a blurt?
