    Forget Bolf, Let's Talk Frolf: The Disc Golf Thread

    Loos pretty tough to me. I have a hard enough time hitting the basket as it is. That thing is surprisingly expensive though, $85 for the home version. https://www.puttconfidently.com/

    Forget Bolf, Let's Talk Frolf: The Disc Golf Thread

    Just got the official ok on some gym space for a winter indoor putting league. Never played in one, now I'm running it. What could possibly go wrong? I've got a few games to start but I have no idea if turnout will be 5 or 30 so I'm leaving it flexible for now. Hopefully it runs smoothly...

    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    It’s been a while, but as I recall you are supposed to go to the beat of Staying Alive (or Another One Bites the Dust if you’re morbid). Is that still true?

    World Cup Semifinal Megathread: Argentina/Croatia & France/Morocco

    I'm a Pele guy for lots of reasons, I don't think he has lapped the field, but I do think he's ahead. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9n9SIkna-M&t=315s

    Brady is back….back again

    I was half asleep and not paying that much attention, but I think I saw him signing the ball for one of the guys that picked him off. Of course I'm sure we've all seen him leave the field pretty quickly at times as well, so like most people he's not perfectly consistent. I think I do see him...

    Celebrating what is

    Agree with all of this and had some of those same thoughts. I think part of the trouble is they do this education with rookies. When I was 21-23 if you had given me an NFL salary and then tried to teach me how to manage money I wouldn't have retained any of it. I was still bullet proof and...

    World Cup Quarterfinal Day 1: Croatia/Brazil & Netherlands/Argentina

    That's sort of a defense wins championships, offense sells tickets thing. I don't think you can ride a hot goalie all the way to the final because the goal is too big and the forwards are too good. Keeper is one of the most important positions though because a good keeper can cover a multitude...

    The way too late World Cup rooting interests thread

    My nationalities in no particular order: England US Switzerland After that I usually pull for upsets/smaller countries, particularly African countries. I don't oppose many teams and when I do it's largely for one particular person/event that I then blame the whole country for (Portugal...

    The Judgment-Free Soccer Questions Thread

    I like the sin bin idea as well, but you have to sort out the clock management first, otherwise time wasting while you're down a man will be a big problem. Most of the rest I agree with. I agree with BSF that the cost is a factor but I think the answer is that you just set them for the highest...

    I don't know what my rating is, but congrats on beating yours! Always nice to see what you're capable of if things go ok. I feel like I rarely put it all together, but there are flashes where I wonder 'why can't I just do that every time?' That's the joy/frustration of the sport though...

    Your arm strength will have an impact for sure, but your form is more important. I'm pretty sure I'm a fair bit stronger than Paige Pierce for instance, but I'm equally sure that she can out throw me by a fair margin. Throwing more will improve your form, when I switched over from Ultimate the...

    That's one of the more common ones I've seen. Looks like prices have gone up a bit, but I suppose everything else has too. Still, they work just fine. One thing to note is that the way they fly may change a bit as they get used more (or if you hit a couple of trees). Flight patterns can also...

    Most impressive stat from Brady era

    I think some of those records will go down, particularly yards and TDs. Yes the numbers are huge, but 17 games now could turn into 18 or more and especially with passing stats increasing and longer careers I think they go down eventually. I don't think the title games/superbowl MVPs etc go...

    I don't know if anyone has played glow, but I went out a couple of times and had a lot of fun. Some friends hooked me up with some glow discs and a blacklight to charge them. Another guy had a stupid bright flashlight to give the fairway a bit of light and put on the basket when people were...

    I'd bet there's a low key league somewhere near you that would be happy to welcome a new guy and show you the ropes. If they are anything like the guys I play with they will also offer lots of advice and discs that they don't use anymore. Most people start out with 'easier' discs and progress...

    I love the smell of burning oil in the morning - The Formula 1 2022 season

    A buddy of mine was hoping to go to Montreal for the F1 race next year, I thought I might tag along. It looks like the cheap seats are sold out, any tips on the secondary market? We don't want to drop a grand or so for the stuff that's left.

    Thanks, I played pretty poorly though. Probably put up two of my 5 worst rounds of the year. Some bad luck on rollaways (about 300 feet worth on 3 putts, I wish that was an exaggeration). But if I hit the puts they can't roll so it's on me. Still, finished third and won the doubles league so...

    Tis the season I guess. We have a tournament this weekend as well. Two rounds, one Saturday and one Sunday with optional glow and mini courses as well, also on a ski hill. Glow is a lot of fun but I might give it a miss this year since my shoulder gets cranky if I play too much and a 36 hole...
