    2021 Golf Thread

    I played my first round in almost three months today. (Sheesh, what a summer and early autumn I've had.) Had a friend round as a visitor to Dunbar, with the wind blowing at 25-35 mph, and the results were about as crazy as you'd expect. I started double-bogey-bogey-par and was 4 down, but I...

    2021 Ryder Cup- Whistling Straits

    I don't personally know of any club that does this myself, but I do know that if you go to play at Muirfield as a visiting foursome, and you plan to play 36 holes (with the club's justly famous lunch in between), you're supposed to play alternate shot in the afternoon after lunch.

    2021 Ryder Cup- Whistling Straits

    One of the biggest aspect of American course setup involves growing very little rough, so their big hitters can bomb and gouge without really having to gouge. That's not a day-to-day thing.

    2021-22 NBA Off-season Thread

    By the way, I think the other reason that I really don't want the Hawks to get Simmons is actually karma-related: Atlanta effectively ended Simmons' career in Philadelphia. He chose not to go strong to the hoop in Game 7 against the Hawks. You can't trade for THAT guy, can you? Consolidating...

    Spot on. A trade in which Hunter and Simmons are the main pieces would be fascinating, with Morey betting on Hunter's knee and Schlenk betting on Simmons' fit (and willingness to work on the flaws in his game). Ultimately, I think the risks are such that both GMs would say no.

    CFB 2021 Week 4

    I looked at this and wondered how the hell Miami was still ranked...and then I noticed UCLA is also listed as #24. (Miami didn't actually get a single vote in this week's poll, FWIW.) Not exactly the most scintillating week of games, but I am looking forward to Aggie vs. Piggy. (Did I do that...

    No thanks. As long as Hunter's injury issues aren't long-term debilitating - and if they are, the Sixers wouldn't want him anyway - he has LOADS of upside, and that's a lot of picks and two very good role players you have going to Philly with him. And I'm not convinced about the Trae/Simmons...

    I dunno, I think it'd be a great story if Team Europe had to choose a player to sit out the Sunday singles because Bryson had been murdered by his teammates. Plus, I'd never have to watch Bryson harangue a rules official again! Win-win!

    Diary of a commentator

    Ouch. That's pretty bad...I mean, I've had moments in hockey games where I started to yell "He scores!" only to realize that the puck had rippled the outside of the net instead of the back of the net, but I think that's much more understandable than not waiting an extra second to see the...

    We started with one TD too many for this to count.

    To be honest, it's really more down to the fact that Atlanta has no quality offensive linemen, and very few quality defensive players. But I'm not at all impressed with the start he's made.

    He's already used his "Successful Hail Mary to win the Super Bowl!" voice in this game. There's literally no way for him to get any louder or crazier...and it's early in the second half.

    Because he has no sense of perspective?
