Some Friend Sues Another Friend Fore Hitting Him With a Ball


First, see what I did in that headline? Hiiilarious as usual!

Anyway, yeah, some rich doctor is suing his "buddy" because he didn't scream fore when he hit a shot that struck him in the head and blinded him in one eye. The round in question happened in 2002, but don't you worry because this thing is happening, and it's going to the New York Court of Appeals on Tuesday to sort this out.

Just to let you know, Dr. Azad Anand is suing Dr. Anoop Kapoor for not warning him of the shot.

Here are the details on the shot in question.

The men, frequent golf partners, were playing in October 2002 at the Dix Hills Park Golf Course with another friend, Balram Verma. After hitting a second shot on the first hole, each set off to find his ball.

Anand testified that he was hit as soon as he found his ball and turned around, about 15 to 20 feet away from Kapoor.
Verma testified that Anand was 15 to 20 feet away from Kapoor and about 50 degrees away from the intended line of flight for Kapoor’s shot.

Kapoor testified that Anand was farther away and at an angle of 60 to 80 degrees. He said he shouted a warning when he realized the ball was headed toward Anand. Neither friend said he heard a warning.


I mean, come on guys. This is going to court? Maybe it's because I grew up in a household that is completely anti-lawsuit (my mom once got hit by a guy in a Blockbuster parking lot, and just came home, not really telling anyone, until one of us realized this HUGE bruise on her leg, and asked what the hell happened), but I find it ridiculous that someone would really press charges against a supposed friend because this happened. It's part of golf! I've been hit with balls on the course. My golf cart has been hit. I've nearly been killed.

Golf isn't anywhere near a contact sport, but at a public golf course, it can be, and this is part of the deal.

Getting hit and going blind definitely sucks, but I think it makes you look a lot worse if you go out and try to get money from the guy. Almost as bad? Suing a person that you hit when drunk because his parents let him ride his bike in the street.

Girls seem to be more free to put on cross-gender clothes and also to act
outdoors their recognized gender function.
Think about how the media portrays men and women.
It appears guys are both the stereotypical macho guy or the bumbling fool.
Men are much less free of charge to show their
feelings. Girls can be qualified, clever, and athletic.
