We all let Memorial Day become about mattress specials and getting hammered, instead of honoring fallen Americans. And we should all be ashamed. So we are NOT about to do that to 9/11.
On Monday, Tumbledown Trails golf course in Verona, Wisconsin published ads for a SEPTEMBER 11TH SPECIAL, nine holes of golf for $9.11, or 18 holes with a golf cart for only 19.11.
But the ad got passed around on social media, and Tumbledown Trails got the BACKLASH you'd expect for EXPLOITING 9/11.
They say their goal was to remind people of the significance of the day.
So they apologized, canceled the special and the ads, and said they'd donate any profits today to a 9/11 memorial fund.
I've lived in West Michigan for over 15 years and am proud to call Beer City home.
I was born in Cincinnati & grew up in Detroit. This fun fact has haunted me throughout my life as I am both a Lions & Bengals fan.
I'm a big fan of Kendrick Lamar, Foxy Shazam, Common, Eminem, Kid Rock, Drake, Lupe Fiasco, and 1980s Michael Jackson.
