    Liar liar pants on fire

    From the ol' news wire, dateline Colorado Springs:

    Disc golf story in Tuesday's paper was a fabrication
    The disc golf story that ran on B1 in Tuesday’s paper was a fabrication by the subject, Daniel Carlile, 17.
    Carlile, who is out of town, admitted via the telephone to The Gazette and to his family that he did not advance to any national or world tournaments, as indicated in the article, and that he had a trophy made as part of the deception.

    Carlile had fooled his family, which contacted The Gazette suggesting a story on his accomplishments. After talking to Carlile and two family members, The Gazette ran the story along with a photo. We regret our part in the fabrication.

    Sports editor


    Wish we could see the original article...

    Immortality, or infamy, for Dan.

    It's those poor peoples' own fault.
    Why, I actually saw Red Green build his own Zamboni with a Chrysler K-car and duct tape.

    Yeah... after all, he only came in 3rd.

    If I were Mittl or Flash, I'd mail Danman an invitation to 2010 BSF asap, I want to meet the dude who handed Chanman a "singapore style caning"

    I went to the curling championships and cleaned up, sweeping it all. I put the competition completely on ice. But then I had the stones for it.

    As do I. But you've got to admit, it's not exactly a mainstream sport.
