Comedian Faces 6 Months in Jail for Yellowstone Golf Stunt

And several other national parks could follow suit.

Golf is, in and of itself, a sport that takes place within the beauty of nature.  The crisply mown fairways under a sparking sky, with the outside world groomed to perfection, the game exists not only as a testament to sport, but to mankind’s stewardship of the land we’ve been blessed with.

The same stewardship of the land has also influenced America’s National Park program, in which the federal government looks to preserve and maintain some of the most pristine and bucolic natural scenes that this great nation has to offer.

But, let’s make one thing very clear:  You shouldn’t go golfing in Yellowstone Park.

A comedian named Jake Adams recently finished an epic road trip in which he whacked a golf ball in every state over the course of 30 days. The problem? In Wyoming, he hit a few shots in none other than Yellowstone National Park, and park officials are none too pleased. In fact, he is under federal investigation and faces the possibility of six months in prison and $5,000 in fines, reports the Wall Street Journal. Adams chronicled his golf journey on Instagram, and his stop at Yellowstone caught the attention of local station KHQ 6, which reached out to the National Park Service. The service said Adams “showed a lack of judgment and common sense,” violated regulations designed to preserve the park, and was under investigation, per the Idaho Statesman.

The funnyman thought that he had taken enough precautions to be spared the trouble having not only brought a golf mat with him to prevent divots, but also using biodegradable golf balls as not to litter.
Adams had taken shots in 4 other national parks as well, but there has been no word as to whether or not he’ll face charges there as well.

The moment was simply magical.

For as much controversy as has been manufactured around the National Anthem, there is still nothing quite like witnessing a powerful rendition of a song that brings so many of us pride here in the United States. In the annals of sports history, there are but a few moments of anthemic joy that stand atop the list, with this author’s personal favorite being the incredibly salient and pointed version performed by Whitney Houston at the Super Bowl in 1991: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_lCmBvYMRs Now, 30 years and some months later, another unforgettable anthem moment has arrived. Nassau Coliseum was roaring with energy Wednesday night as fans in attendance belted out the National Anthem before the New York Islanders Game 6 victory over the Boston Bruins in a viral moment that is sure to give anyone chills. Nicole Raviv regularly sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Isles games at the Coliseum but on Wednesday night she was overpowered by the crowd, even turning over the microphone to the fans. “My heart is full. The coliseum will forever have the best backup singers in the #NHL,” Raviv wrote on Twitter. A moment like this was made for social media, and it soon spread like wildfire. https://twitter.com/NHLonNBCSports/status/1402773091672068098?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1402773091672068098%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fsports%2Fislanders-fans-national-anthem-viral-game-6-bruins The fans were ready, however, after a microphone glitch forced them to join in on the anthem just two games earlier.

Jason Whitlock has thoroughly upset the left with his common-sense talk on sports and American culture, and now he is about to upset them even more with a new, hour-long program in partnership with The Blaze. Per the recent announcement: On July 6, Whitlock and Blaze Media will launch an hour-long daily podcast/digital TV show, “Fearless with Jason Whitlock,” from a newly acquired and renovated Nashville studio. In addition, Whitlock and Blaze Media will partner on a writing vertical, Fearless, that will explore the intersection of sports, culture, faith, and race. Whitlock will serve as founder and editor-in-chief of the vertical that will live on TheBlaze.com. The writing platform is still in development. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with Jason Whitlock on this exciting new project,” said Blaze Media CEO Tyler Cardon. “Jason is authentic, entertaining, and fearless, all of which make him a perfect fit for the Blaze Media brand. He also has great vision and an extraordinary ability to cut through the noise. We’re also excited to be broadening our programming to include a daily show about sports and culture, and to be able to chart that territory with a singular talent like Jason is an honor.” “Blaze Media shares my values — love of God and country, laughter, and a belief that nothing is more liberating than a fearless pursuit of truth,” said Whitlock, the well-known former Kansas City Star columnist and ESPN and FOX Sports personality. “Blaze is the perfect launching pad for what I want to accomplish in the media space. Fearless will aspire to be a beacon of truth and fun, two things sorely missing in the America that Nike, China, and LeBron James are plotting.” Some of Whitlock’s former co-workers will join him in the new effort.
