Grain Alcohol appears to be a handicap doubler...

Consistent iron play.

Biggest Con:
You think a name like Hammer would get you longer drives.
His first time at the top of the handicap board. Correction: WOFM Golf handicap board.

Indirectly gives off the country club vibe..That has to be good, right?

Biggest Con:
Hasn't proved it yet on the big dog courses with WOFM distractions.
He abandoned a lesser group to join The Weekend of Man. Bold, but unsuprising.

Hysterectomy Tom (Hdcp: 13)

Undrafted Jeff

The Bobocracy

If that handicap of 13 holds up he will be in the running for rookie of the year.

He has a cousin Cathy who likes to travel to foreign countries with a funky uterus.

Biggest Pro:
His handicap has risen this year, which gives him a few more holes to take strokes on, hopefully not from the trees.

Biggest Con:
Depending on the morning commuter traffic in Atlanta, Georgia, the 2015 quinoa crop in Bolivia, or a child in Indonesia who won't stop talking in his backswing, there's a chance of mental breakdown.

The 2014 Ironhead Cup Draft

Posted by The Bobocracy - June 28, 2014 | Link



The 2014 Ironhead Cup Draft took it to new heights, thanks to the collaborative creativity of this year's captains, Undrafted Jeff and Sam Adequate.  A number of Alumni attended, many beers were consumed, and the entirety of a complete packed bar was involved in deciding this year's teams.

Undrafted Jeff and Sam Adequate decided to choose this year's teams by having bar patrons draw names from a hat.  Waiters and waitresses, hosts and hostesses, and a large number of bar patrons selected names one-by-one and the teams slowly came together.  Oddly enough, all but one name was drawn by a woman.  Huh.  Per Ironhead Cup rules, the hostess chose who picked first and selected Undrafted Jeff and the Bowser Big Oaks to have the first pick.

On to the draft results!

Undrafted Jeff - Bowser Big Oaks
Sam Adequate - Casco

2013 Ironhead Cup Draft Marred by Controversy

Posted by Undrafted Jeff - August 7, 2013 | Link

The Barrio Hostess Ashley and Her Selection of Sporadic Jack
The Barrio Hostess Ashley and Her Selection of Sporadic Jack

Situation: The 2013 Ironhead Cup Draft was at Barrio in Lowertown, St. Paul at 4:30 PM this Friday (June 7th). Sporadic Jack and Scottish Rob are this year's captains based on the criteria set by Good Times Johnny (Greater than six feet tall, white hair, beard) so did the draft undoubtedly prove to be a battle of the minds?
 
And now the play-by-play of the battle actually begins.
 
In a brilliant move - Scottish Rob starts the mind games by going to the wrong bar for some drinks and a deep strategy session before the draft.  This "delay" tactic leaves Sporadic Jack sitting on a park bench across the street from Barrio looking closely like a pre-holiday Santa waiting for the bus. That is where I joined the draft fun.
 
Upon arriving in Barrio Sporadic Jack quickly uses his boyish charms to persuade a "Smokin Hot" hostess to be the "coin flip."  [Editor's Note:  WOFM Draft rules dictate that if the hostess is hot, she chooses who picks first.  If male or unattractive, the duties are given to the bartender.]
 
While waiting for Scottish Rob, Sporadic Jack shares the in-depth, bus stop derived, family first strategy with Undrafted Jeff and star witness to the draft - Weekend of Man Alumni Nerd.  This strategy consists of drafting lesser skilled players who have the ability to get into "the minds" of opponents.  He is not focused on low scores but rather on team chemistry and sabotage.
 
"Smokin Hot" hostess was a confirmed hottie and she did follow the protocol by awarding Champ McNairs and Sporadic Jack the first pick in the 2013 draft. She later shares privately she based her decision 100% on promptness (not on package size which Sporadic Jack may try to boost.)
 
On to the draft:
 
Sporadic Jack makes the first choice and goes for the lowest handicap - not family...interesting...
 
The Draft then predictively serpentines down "Low Handicap Lane" for the first 4 rounds.  No clear advantage is gained by either team.
 
In round 5 Sporadic Jack then activates the family-first strategy.  You can actually see and feel the battle heating up.  By all accounts this is where Scottish Rob's strategy started to come together.  You could actually hear the gun shot sounds as the captain of Team Champ McNairs begins shooting his own feet.  Notice the Long Duk Dong and Cinnamon choices. Slight advantage is given to Scottish Rob in the middle rounds.
 
The apogee of the draft happened in Round Ten when Scottish Rob proudly drafts Good Times Johnny for Team Omer Princes.  Since Good Times Johnny is not an official player in 2013, this causes quite the uproar.  Rules are reviewed, phone calls are being made, text messages are flying...not sure how this will resolve itself.  But this is very fun to watch as the captains continue battling it out for the 20th out of 24 draft spot.
 
A ruling from The Bobocracy was needed to resolve the situation.  Whoever drafts Double-Guns will get Good Times Johnny as a proxy for one round of golf - the ruling solves the issue for now and we continue on with the draft.
 
The draft finishes with no further tussles and a few more rounds of beer.

2013 Ironhead Cup Kits & Draft Date Set

Posted by The Bobocracy - August 7, 2013 | Link

2013 Weekend of Man Kits
2013 Weekend of Man Kits

The Weekend of Man Twenty Thirteen is only 10 weeks away and The 2013 Ironhead Cup is beginning to shape up.  In February, at The Weekend of Man Board of Directors meeting, Good Times Johnny announced the criteria for this year's Ironhead Cup captains:

Over 6 feet tall, white hair, white beard.

As such, Sporadic Jack and Scottish Rob, the only two Alumni and Twenty Thirteen attendees meeting this criteria, were chosen.  Team names were chosen based on criteria suggested by Sporadic Jack that (after many beers during the Board of Directors meeting) was actually approved, and based on that criteria, Sporadic Jack will captain the Champ McNairs and dress in black while Scottish Rob will lead the Omer Princes in crimson.  Each Twenty Thirteen alumni will receive a Nike Dri-Fit Victory Polo in their team's color with the Twenty Thirteen logo embroidered on the right sleeve, as well as a Nike Dri-Fit Tech Swoosh cap with the standard Weekend of Man logo on the side temple.

 
The Ironhead Cup Draft has been scheduled for 4:30 PM, Friday, June 7th, 2013 at Barrio in Lowertown St. Paul.  All Men are encouraged to attend, especially rookies.

Frighteningly Similar to Old Firm Colors. Hopefully a Fight Doesn't Break Out

On the afternoon of April 16th, 2012, Citizen Dique and Cinnamon!, the captains of the 2012 Arrowhead Cup chose their branding for the coming tournament.

Each captain was required to pick the shirt from the other team.  Citzen Dique chose Valor Blue to adorn the squad led by Cinnamon!.  Cinnamon! elected Pro Green for his competitor.  Both chose stripes.  All the shirts will carry The Weekend of Man SIX logo on the right sleeve.

Continuing to improve on The Weekend of Man, this years shirts are Nike Dri-Fit UV Tech polos, the absolute top-of-the-line in golf apparel.  Extremely comfortable and cool, each Man shall play in comfort for the duration of the 2012 Arrowhead Cup.  Better yet, they will be offered at the same price as last year's now inferior shirts.

The 2011 Ironhead Cup Draft: Results and Analysis

Posted by The Bobocracy - May 15, 2012 | Link



This afternoon over lunch, Good Times Johnny (captain of the Vermilion Team) and Nerd (captain of the Mesabi Team) drafted their 2011 rosters for the Ironhead Cup.  It was moved up from July 21st to take advantage of a deal from Golfsmith that required the teams to be known.  Here’s the draft results and professional analysis by The Bobocracy:


First Round

1.  (1 Overall) – Scholarship
After being chosen by a bartender to have the first pick in the 2011 Draft, Good Times Johnny shocked everyone and took Scholarship with the first overall pick.  The pick was jeered by many in the audience as many other lower handicap golfers were available.  "I wanted to take the guy who has the time and is most likely to improve in the coming month." explained Good Times Johnny, referring to Scholarship's unemployment.  He continued, "Fly Fishing?  F*ck that.  His ass better be at the driving range."

2.  (2 Overall) - The Bobocracy
One of the top prospects in this year's draft, Nerd went with the player bringing by far the most local knowledge of the Iron Range golf courses.  A very long hitter with a good enough short game should offer scoring opportunities for the Mesabi Team.  There are some lingering concerns with The Bobocracy's game however.  His play tends to be incredibly streaky, going from brilliant to horrific from day-to-day.  A high-reward pick could become high-risk, especially if he plays with a hangover.

Second Round

1.  (3 Overall) - Master Baiter Jason
Good Times Johnny opened the second round with a brilliant pick, taking Master Baiter Jason.  Jason's consistency and attitude will be welcomed to the Vermilion Team.  His ability to go beer-for-beer with Good Times Johnny should be a strong addition to the team's chemistry.  A lack of golf over the summer by paying way too much attention to his pregnant wife may mean a rusty golf game for Master Baiter Jason.

2.  (4 Overall) - Nondescript Doug
A low handicapper that nobody but Scottish Rob knows, Nerd went with an "on-paper" pick, taking a single-digit handicap in the second round.  Descriptions of Doug have ranged from "kind of an average laid-back guy" to "nothing really of note."  Time will tell if Nerd's blind pick will match the paper qualifications, or if the Mesabi Team just acquired their own JaMarcus Russell.

Third Round

1.  (5 Overall) - The Phony Peroni
Another contraversial pick by Good Times Johnny started the third round with the selection of The Phony Peroni.  Known to break down mentally on the golf course, The Phony Peroni will have a lot to prove for the Vermilion Team.  All is not bad though, as The Phony Peroni has shown tremendous improvement recently and could be defined as this draft's sleeper pick.

2.  (6 Overall) - Kahnke Kong
Nerd and the Mesabi Team could not look past Kahnke Kong's claims of being an "average 300 yard driver" in the third round.  Unmentioned by Khanke Kong was the consistency of and direction in which the 300 yards would be, and the number of shots required to cover such a distance.  Not an accurate golfer, Kahnke Kong's game could play well to the best ball match play scoring in the Ironhead Cup with a few low scores scattered throughout the round.  The other thing Kahnke Kong is sure to bring is really bad beer.

Fourth Round

1.  (7 Overall) - Cinnamon!
Almost universally analyzed as possibly the worst pick in the draft, Good Times Johnny went with another team chemistry pick with a pretty horrible golf game.  Cinnamon is a short hitter and a poor putter.  While many better picks were on the board and available, Good Times Johnny revealed an interesting strategy.  Cinnamon's terrible slice will be a massive advantage on all the dogleg-right holes.  Of the 54 different holes on the 3 Ironhead Cup courses, 3 holes play to the right.

2.  (8 Overall) - Undrafted Jeff
Undrafted no longer, Nerd and the Mesabi Team took Undrafted Jeff with the 8th overall pick.  A lack of play in 2011 may hurt Undrafted Jeff in the Ironhead Cup, however he has recently attempted to "buy a game" by equipping himself with a new driver and hybrid (utility club, not car.)  Hyper-competitiveness and an anything-to-win attitude could offer strong locker room presence.

Fifth Round

1.  (9 Overall) - Sporadic Jack
During the 2011 Ironhead Cup Draft, Sporadic Jack, who was projected as a high first-round pick, was taken by Good Times Johnny and the Vermilion Team with the 1st pick in the 5th round, the 9th overall pick after the teams, even those in need of a veteran low-handicap golfer, were concerned with Sporadic Jack's well-documented course management problems. Before the draft Sporadic Jack was quoted as saying teams that pass on him "will regret it once they see what kind of a player I am and what kind of guy I really am."

2.  (10 Overall) - Macho Rod
Macho Rod, who can hit a driver 280 yards and a sand wedge 250, is an interesting fifth round pick.  Macho Rod's putter is the make-or-break portion of his game and it remains to be seen which putter (literally, he has several) Macho Rod brings to the 2011 Ironhead Cup.  Macho Rod has also battled injury problems in past years, and there is some concern that he is playing on the same team as The Bobocracy,  who's fat ass caused said injuries.

Sixth Round

1.  (11 Overall) - Sir Mix-A-Lot
Proving its not what you know but who you know, Sir Mix-A-Lot was picked by his own neighbor, Good Times Johnny, with the 11th overall pick.  Sir Mix-A-Lot brings with him a decent golf game that is well-complimented by the beverage cart.  Critics point to Sir Mix-A-Lot's tendency to "mix-a-lot" the night before as a potential downside to his game.

2.  (12 Overall) - The Nordique
Another relative unknown, The Nordique slid down the board despite a decent handicap due to relative obscurity, just like most other French Canadians.  Speculation abounds about a second potential cause for staying on the board until later rounds due to The Nordique's inability to correctly say "Chowder" while in Boston.  A pre-draft email from The Nordique boasted of his game by saying "I want to thank the other team in advance for letting me win, because you've seen [due to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals] what happens when Canadians lose."

Seventh Round

1.  (13 Overall) - Scottish Rob
Scottish Rob and his uncanny resemblence to both the Gordon's Fisherman and an Old Spice commercial started the seventh round with a pick by Good Times Johnny.  The lateness of the pick is most likely a result of recent complains about a sore hip, a lack of dedication to the golf (as opposed to sailing), and a golf game where no raw talent stands out.  Scottish Rob's strongest asset is that he actually is Scottish, and they did invent the game.  "How else are you supposed to keep yourself entertained while herding sheep?" asked Scottish Rob.  No analysts wanted to provide a strongly-obvious answer.

(14 Overall) - Critical Steve
A fractured shin bone lands Critical Steve as the last pick in the seventh round.  While he assured both captains that doctors have paced his recovery well ahead of the Ironhead Cup, it was only Nerd who was willing to bet on it.  Critical Steve is an infrequent golfer and has a rusty game that may not score well for the Measbi Team.  His uncanny ability to over-react to mundane things might create problems within the team.

Eighth Round

1.  (15 Overall) - The Swiss Miss-ter
Good Times Johnny again focused on team chemistry by taking his non-golfer pick earlier in the draft.  The Swiss Miss-ter is a native of the Iron Range and with a general dislike of people, promises an interesting persective for the other members of the Vermilion Team.  While analysts question taking a non-golfer while some were still on the board, Good Times Johnny has brushed away the criticism almost as fast as The Swiss Miss-ter brushes away chances with women.

2.  (16 Overall) - The Wizard
Clearly a pressure pick after Good Times Johnny took the Swiss Miss-ter with the first pick in the 8th round, Nerd selected The Wizard, the other non-golfer in this year's draft.  The Wizard's spell casting abilities involving alcohol have the potential to wreak havoc on the Mesabi Team.  Despite the concern, Nerd has repeatedly voiced his confidence in the Wizard.


Ninth Round

1.  (17 Overall) - Citizen Dique
Only recently taking up golf dropped Citizen Dique to the final round of the 2011 Ironhead Cup Draft.  Citizen Dique does bring with him the ability to drink cheap beer with ease, a common trait amongst the draft targets for Good Times Johnny and the Vermilion Team.  When asked about how he plans to contribute to the team, Citizen Dique answered with "I'm a self-contained unit."

2.  (18 Overall) - 
With only one left on the draft board and the last pick in the draft, Nerd drafted a player-to-be-named-later.  it isn't yet known what this unknown player may or may not bring to the team, but it is certain that it will be uncertain.  "Party" was the simple response offered by Nerd.

 
Overall Handicaps:
Mesabi Team (Nerd):  21.75
Vermilion Team (Good Times Johnny):  21.0

The Officials of Man

Posted by The Bobocracy - May 15, 2012 | Link



After careful deliberation of a select few Men, it has been decided to bestow the most honorable of awards upon an exclusive group of merchants that have been found to provide quite simply the finest products and services available to Men.

It is with great pleasure that I announce to the finest of Men the selections for The Weekend of Man 2010. While on this planet exists an unbelievably vast network of merchants capable of providing objects of desire to Men, only the best even come remotely close to the nearly unreachable standards of The Weekend of Man.

While traditionally commerce would establish roles such as customer and vendor, it is contrary to the objective of which The Weekend of Man seeks to accomplish. Our goal is quite simple: Create relationships. We will seek to build long-term value by those esteemed enough to reach the lofty Weekend of Man standards.

The Weekend of Man Alumni Association is reaching "Across the Pond" this year and will include The Bobocracy's "Meatball Line" from work. Real, authentic, Swedes.

They will be in the United States for an important work meeting earlier that week and will join in the festivities at the end of the week.

Maybe we should add meatballs to the menu.

Any man dare attempt to cook and/or eat the Bacon Explosion during The Weekend of Man?

It's a "weave" of bacon that surrounds a layer of pork sausage that surrounds a layer of crispy diced bacon. This amazing bacon bounty is then coated in BBQ sauce, you know, for looks.

This might be too much for even the finest of men.

See the recipe here:

Men,

Man Weekend 2009 closed successfully, albeit cold, and so the planning for The Weekend of Man, MMX begins.

I have finalized our reservations and am happy to inform you that we will have the exact same accommodations we had last year. In addition, due to an expected increase in demand, we will add one more villa to The Home of Man. Should this become unnecessary due to lower-than-expected attendance, I will modify our reservation.

Bruce-in-Law has been appointed as the Treasurer for the Man Weekend Alumni Association and will be coordinating our related financials. I have been happy to inform him that I have negotiated a discount for our group in excess of 31% for our lodging from this year's rates.

I encourage you to visit regularly to stay up-to-date on The Blog of Man as I will post regular updates here rather than sending lengthy emails to you about all things Man.
