  1. 88 MVP

    Heading to San Juan, PR with the family for 4 days in a couple weeks and might be able to squeeze in a round of golf one day. Anyone have any course recommendations? (Non-golf recommendations welcome, too)

    I’m sure you’re right and didn’t mean to imply that good players are all playing MB-style blades, but the T100 and other “players irons” all have much weaker lofts compared to GI sets that keep getting stronger lofts. (e.g. the T100 4 iron is 24*, T200 is 21*, and the T300 is 20*). Somewhat...

    It may be more reflective of club category and lofts. My irons are Taylormade Speedblades from a few years ago - a game improvement iron set with strong lofts. The 4i is 20*. I‘m currently a 16 handicap, fwiw. I would guess that some of our better players are using blades or players irons...

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 6 vs Giants

    A formula based on field position, yards to go, time remaining, and score. If you have an hour to kill, this SB Nation video is entertaining.

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 1 vs Steelers

    The defense has allowed a grand total of 2 field goals in the last 8 quarters... is that good? Honorable mention to Burkhead, White, and Wynn. And Flash for picking up right where he left off last season.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    I haven’t felt this let down by a sporting event in a long time. It sucks that this core of players might not win another cup. The Bruins were clearly the more talented team, just a confluence of bad luck, shitty officiating, and timely plays for St Louis. -Gryz gets knocked out in Game 2, and...

    Potting one on the first shift this period would be nice

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Let’s fucking go! Skate, skate, skate and make these goons pay every time they chase a hit by burying the puck in the net

    Game 2 - Bruins v. Blues

    I'm usually happy to lurk in these Bruins game threads, but my wife is currently in labor and my daughter seems likely to be born sometime around the second intermission, so this seems like good thread mojo. I have a laptop set up in the window ledge shelf ready to stream NBCSN. May my...

    For those of you who play in competitive leagues and tournaments, I’m curious how you handle rules issues and how often they comes up. I joined a club last year, and this is my first year playing in the men’s league. Before joining the club, I had zero experience playing anything more...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    At one point Simmons addressed it somewhat obliquely, first by outright stating that he wouldn’t ask Damon about it, but then referencing the fact that Damon himself received some negative press in the wake of the Weinstein news. Damon basically fielded that softball and used it to distance...

    Xfinity sound quality

    How are you feeding the audio signal from your cable box to the TV or receiver? I assume HDMI, but if it’s over analog maybe it’s just a poor DAC in your cable box and using an alternative connection would fix the issue

    SBLII: What Did the Butler Do?

    A matchup concern? So Butler was a worse matchup against the entire Philly depth chart? Couldn’t make the field in sub packages? Nonsense

    SBLII: What Did the Butler Do?

    Bullshit. The defense was torched tonight, and the team benched its second-beat cornerback for seemingly no reason. If Butler is on the field it’s an entirely different secondary and maybe they manage to get ONE stop in second half

    SBLII: What Did the Butler Do?

    Remember that time the pats almost forced a three and out and Bademosi whiffed on a tackle? That was fun. Hope Malcolm learned his lesson!

    SBLII: Patriots vs. Eagles, the Build-Up

    I think these takes on Foles are mostly accurate. Only two weeks ago the Eagles were held to 15 points, all field goals, by Atlanta’s D (8th in scoring, 9th in yards, 12th against the pass). It seems just as likely that he’ll look pedestrian against the Pats as it does that he would repeat...

    Buying an iPhone is Hard

    Has anyone dealt with upgrading the phone and switching carriers at the same time? I’m planning a switch from Sprint to T-mobile and I’m not sure whether it would be easier to transfer my current phones to a new carrier first or to buy new phones at the time of the switch. From what I can...

    Thanks for asking, I was expecting that would be the case but I couldn't find any info on it.
