Re: Pre-Season 10 Simpsons Discussion (Formerly The Simpsons are on FXX!)

I recently learned that Conan only wrote 3 episodes. I understand that he contributed to more than that, but his impact on the show seems to be severely overstated. And is really only known for the monorail episode He might not be known for it, but Homer Goes to College also ranks up there in great...

Re: Golf thread

A couple/few years ago I was out playing with my parents and getting real frustrated with how I was playing, to the point that I really didn't enjoy going out. I came to the realization that I had two choices: stop playing or try to get better. Since I still wanted to go out an play with my parents,...

Re: What new rules should stay?

I voted DH, but don't appose the 3 batter rule and expanded roster. I'm against 7 inning double-headers during a normal season and really don't want to expand the playoffs. The runner on second thing I was ok with in the minors for the expressed issue of ending the games, and therefore would be ok w...

Re: The Worst Defensive Play of All Time?

Wasn't there a Cubs walk-off against Colorado back in the Sosa days where the Rockies made a series of horrible defensive plays which led to a walk off on like 3 errors in one play? I can't find the video clip and I don't remember if it was against the Rockies or not Kinda: https://www.youtube.com/...

Re: Golf thread

One thing: Don't buy blades. They're the ones that look like they're made of a single piece (like the TM p790 for example). They allow for a lot of control and shot shaping, but trade off that they're very hard to hit well. Basically just for very good players. You want the regular cavity back irons.

Re: Golf thread

I wouldn't over think it. Regular flex steel shaft will probably be fine starting out and you probably wouldn't be able to notice much of a difference at this point anyways. One major reason not to spend a lot on clubs is that you may find that you don't really like the clubs you buy after a while a...
