Last week, we told you about Grand Theft Golf Ball.
Holly Zachariah of the Columbus Dispatch has reported that the stolen golf ball sculpture, weighing in excess of 200 lbs., was found dumped along the 8200 block of Dublin Road on Saturday. However, the ball has a foot-long crack and numerous scratches. City of Dublin spokeswoman Sandra Puskarcik said in a news release that the city will have to cover the cost of the damage to the $2,500 sculpture.
Your correspondent would still like to see the perps strung up by their toe-nails and used for target practice.

Another stroke penalty. Play it as it lies... c'mon!
A crack in the ball, what was this, an old balata ball?
...& you thought Titleist Pro V1s were expensive.
Why does the city have to cover the damages? Do they own the ball? Nationwide wont help cover the charges given the free advertising?
At least its a good decision to spend money on this during a government shut down. A government official saying that this is an important thing to spend money on right now must have some huge balls.
I wonder if the owner of the ball had insurance on it? Just not sure who would actually insure it?
Jason, Stop, let me catch my breath, I'm still laughing. good points you brought up. What? Nationwide can't insure their own balls.
Matt McGee says:
While we at Nationwide insurance are happy to put our name on them, we are not currently prepared to cover your balls.
