Golf 2.0

Traditionally, to suck up in the business world, you arrange a game of golf with a person in a position of power, either on the same side as that person, or playing against them and intentionally losing. I've known this since before I even knew that real golf was not a somehow-larger version of miniature golf.

Over drinks (none of which were mine) today at the SharePoint Designer developers morale event, I was talking with my manager's manager, and found out that not only does he play World of Warcraft, but he considers himself an avid fan. I suppose that in order to suck up successfully, I would need to either run a dungeon with him and bond, or an arena match against him and lose intentionally. I must admit that I'm not good at this sucking up stuff.

World of Warcraft: Golf 2.0.

Why do you need to lose? I would say beat him just don't embarrass him.
