Of course, being a Canadian, he immediately apologized and gave the bat back.

(The last part is true. He didn't keep it.)

I thought it was funny when he hid it behind his back, just after going all Braveheart.

Then politely passed it back.

Columbus Blue Jackets made a bunch of moves at the trade deadline, dealing Derek Dorsett, Derick Brassard, and John Moore to NYR for Marian Gaborik and two D-men prospects.

They also offloaded Steve Mason to the Flyers.

But are you allowed to drive it on the green?

I don't know whether one is allowed to drive it on the green or not (given that at many golf courses one is prohibited from doing all manner of seemingly harmless things, such as wearing jeans or being female), but the guy in the video claims it has a "footprint" 30 times lighter than a human footprint so leaves no trace.

I suppose it would be fine to drive it over the green as long as you didn't stop.

If they start renting out these things instead of golf carts, they will be doubly useful as leaf blowers during the autumn.
