Five Iron Frenzy Quotes
Both my parents thought it was good for me to read classics growing up, and my mom was an English teacher. When other kids were reading Go Dog Go I had to read A Tale of Two Cities.

We got the name Five Iron Frenzy from a roommate of most of ours. He was kind of paranoid, and afraid that if he went outside on this particular night he was going to get jumped by some people. He had a golf club to defend himself and he said something to the effect of it being like "putter mayhem". Scott looked at the golf club he was holding, and noting that it was a five iron said, "No, more like a Five Iron Frenzy." The name stuck.
