Golf shop recommendations

Tax refund time is right around the corner... In the absence of a golf or shopping thread, can anyone recommend a good golf shop in the Chicago area to buy a new set of clubs? The most important thing for me is making sure I buy the "right" clubs for me, so I want to find a shop that is th...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I find it really difficult to be outraged about accusations like the ones against Al Franken. Unless a real pattern of behavior can be established, it really does just sound like poor judgment and bad taste on his part. Everyone makes mistakes, but now it seems like even the most minor mistake 15 ye...

Apparently the Marlins new ownership group is planning to clean house of special assistants including Jeff Conine, Tony Perez, Jack McKeon, and Andre Dawson. Not a huge story really, but I have to imagine the Cubs would be interested in bringing Dawson back to the organization. Sent from my Pixel us...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Basically no more starts for Heyward and use him as a defensive replacement and keep Bryant at 3B since Seal Boy can't play there for horsefeathers. Why would you want to bench Heyward but keep Jon Jay in the mix? Jay has marginally better offensive numbers, but Heyward is much better at every othe...

I'm ok with the Schwarber move. Let him DH every day for a few weeks and regain some confidence against AAA pitching. I still think he will be fine, and sooner than later.

I feel bad for the individuals losing their jobs, but ESPN as an entity deserves this. I imagine they are going to have some not-so-pleasant negotiations with pay TV providers whenever their existing contacts expire.

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

I have always loved the chaos of long extra inning games and would hate any change to the extra innings format. This is a really awful idea, but I don't see it ever getting serious consideration for real games.
