Re: Golf thread

But the course wasn't the same for everyone. The first people that teed off shot like -6, and as the course dried out, the scores went up dramatically.

It's a sleep sack. And even though I think that kid is too old to be wearing one, I know parents with 3 year olds that still have them in a crib. So basically parents do weird horsefeathers.

That actually makes me feel sick to my stomach. I hope this story gains traction and it's the beginning of the end for this [expletive].

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

About 4 years ago, after visiting my grandparents, my wife and I decided to spend the weekend in downtown Phoenix. We were unaware how dead it was. We honestly thought something was wrong when on a Friday night there was quite literally no one around. We could walk down the middle of the main street...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

I'd be happy with someone like Nelson, as I view him as fairly safe with ability to provide immediate impact. But if there's an impact rusher available, I don't see how they can pass that up. So if pace believes that Landry has that ability, then I will be all for that pick.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Along those lines, my buddy was thinking they may take Harold Landry with the 8th pick. PFF did their mock and have the Bears going Landry, with Chubb still on the board, no less. That was a "what would I do" mock and not a prediction though. What was their line of reasoning for taking La...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Stupid people will often vote against whats in their self interest. So instead of trying to sell them on it, the noble thing at this point would probably just lie to them so they vote for you and then just do whatever helps these poor shmucks out.

Re: Sports Media Thread

I haven't had ATT in Wheaton yet (only Comcast since we moved here), but my previous experience with ATT internet in the Chicago burbs is that it sucks and is way slower and more spotty than Comcast, which I have not had an issue with (other than paying way too much).

I would bet most people who make comments about people running from police deserve to get shot would also glorify movies with high school parties where the kids all run from the cops when the party gets busted. I suppose all those movies need to get changed so the cops just roll into keggers with ar...

Re: NCAA Tournament 2018

I've always envisioned it finally happening on some sort of buzzer beater or something. The fact that it's going to be like a 20 point win makes it sort of anti climactic.

To the surprise of no one, looks like sticking to sports was a factor. Also love the assertion that they could occasionally pair Goff with Holmes at night, because we can’t be having our diversity shown anywhere but nights and weekends. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/ct-spt-wscr-scor...
