In this week's latest Shooter McGavin news bulletin, Sporting Kansas City defender Matt Besler decided to drop one of the legendary golfer's more obscure lines after a 0-0 draw against the Portland Timbers on Wednesday.
In what I assume was pitch-perfect deadpan, the defender worked McGavin's oft-forgotten words about the lovely haven of Portland, Oregon, into his postgame autopsy:
This is always a very difficult place to play. It was a hard-fought draw. I tell you the real winner today is the city of Portland. Every time I come here it gets harder to leave. I bet you guys put something in the water.
It really is a nice town.
If you learned anything this week, let it be that the life and words of the villain from Happy Gilmore are alive and well in 2015.
I mean, Shooter was just hanging out with one of his biggest fans at the U.S. Open this week:
Oh, Shooter. You old dog, you!
Embrace the Shooter renaissance. You can do nothing to stop it.
Dan is on Twitter eagerly awaiting Shooter's comeback tour.
