    Default Brown Lenses in Cover Girl CG-220S Sunglasses

    If your sport uses a ball, brown lenses will allow more light transmission for your eyes to focus on the ball. Grey lenses as well as polarized lenses tend to be too dark for your eyes to accurately focus on the ball. Sports like golf, volleyball, tennis, baseball and football require quick and accurate eye focusing to play at your optimal level. Non-polarized brown lenses work best for these sports. So can you buy Cover Girl CG-220S sunglasses with brown lenses?

    I did a Google search for the phrase "Cover Girl CG-220S sunglasses with brown lenses" and I found a few pairs of sunglasses (and a girl in a swimsuit) but strangely enough, no Cover Girl CG-220S sunglasses with brown lenses. Go figure.

    Speaking of figures, you didn't post the picture of the girl in her swimsuit, I noticed. I guess that's a good thing. We don't want to get off-track.

    Default Ya Gotta Be Quick in Golf

    Off "track." I get it.

    Zana I couldn't help but notice that you wrote "Sports like golf, volleyball, tennis, baseball and football require quick and accurate eye focusing to play at your optimal level." The other sports I understand, but "quick and accurate eye focusing" for golf? When? Do we have any golfers that can answer this question?

    You have to be able to judge distances and time your shot just right to get between the turning windmill blades.

    Yes, of "course" (Get it?). Let's not forget the windmills. Cover Girl sunglasses will probably help you with your golf game, even it it involves windmills and rowboats.

    I sure hope so. I'd hate to have a pair of cheap-o sunglasses ruin my mini golf game.

    Is that a batting cage I see on the right side of the picture? Miniature golf and batting cages go together like Taco Bell and pet stores. (Ever notice that?)

    I see you understand my meaning, Nutradude. Thanks for the illustration.

    It looks like a batting cage and yes, I have noticed the Taco Bell/pet store connection.

    Yeah, what is it with all those Taco Bell restaurants with pet stores within a hundred yards?

    Strangely, no one has taken a picture of the two establishments together and posted it on the web.

    Looks like I have a job to do . . .

    In the meantime, let's talk some more about playing sports with brown tinted sunglasses.

    Yes, you're quite right. Sports and sunglasses with brown lenses. Here's some information I found about the usefulness of brown tinted lenses:

    "Blocks high amounts of blue light to heighten contrast and visual acuity. Particularly useful to improve contrast on grass and against blue skies.

    Sports: baseball, cycling, fishing (especially in waters with grassy bottoms), golf, hunting, skiing, water sports."

    There ya go.

    I'm going to get some brown tinted lenses and do all those things!

    I think I might skip the hunting, Nutradude. Didn't someone suggest on this site that people try hunting without weapons? That would be interesting.

    I think for me it would be too interesting! I think my intended prey might enjoy watching me scramble up a tree or something.
