Re: Golf thread

One of the benefits of being stuck at home during Covid is that I've had the chance to really work on approach shots from 100 yards in since I live on a farm and have that kind of room. I've been playing the best golf of my life. I broke 80 for the first time since I started playing again ( 4 years...

Practice and maybe a short game lesson would bring that down to 20 in no time.

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

Now that it's been a couple weeks since the Hawks got eliminated we can ask the question of whether making the playoffs was worth it. In the moment, the answer was yes since they still had a chance. I think the answer is still yes because it gave the younger players a taste of playoff success and al...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Did this guy actually have it, as in tested, diagnosed and then recovered or did he just think he had it because he had symptoms? I know a lot of people that believe they had it back in February because they had the symptoms but then got better and put 2 and 2 together and got 22.

MY son is getting married tomorrow. The original date was supposed to be May 2 so they had to postpone. To me this seems more like the first step towards getting back to normal.

Those of you that are parents, what are your thoughts on online schooling so far and the prospects of starting next fall online? In particular, if you have a special needs child or children, how well are they doing with all of this?

Damn. My daughter was supposed to be leaving this morning for a 2 week trip to Germany, but the school canned the trip. I can’t imagine the thought of her getting there and getting stranded.

Speaking of old TV shows, Hulu randomly suggested that I watch A Bit of Fry & Laurie which originally aired during the early -mid 1980s. The "Laurie" half of this duo is Hugh Laurie who played House. One of my favorite long running characters/ sketches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q...

Re: Golf thread

Anyone been to Dicks for swing analysis? I was looking for club fitting places near Williamsburg, VA but the intra webs suggested Dicks was closer to my actual location. I'm not looking to invest in a custom made set, I just want to know if I'd be better off with a different flex on my irons.

Gustafson to Flames for conditional draft pick(s). Not really sure which yet. Too bad we didn't trade him last summer when he would have brought in a better return. Now they need to put Boqvist on the #1 PP unit and tell him to shoot the puck every time he sees an opening which should be a lot in th...

Re: (sigh) Return of the XFL

Not sure getting 18 year olds will end up making sense, but maybe they could get involved with the "transfer" game. Rather than sit out a year, potentially put up tape immediately that spring and then declare the next year. I think there are a decent number of high school players who woul...

If the Hawks do become sellers, teams are likely to ask about Maata. Whatever they got for him will have to be added to evaluating that trade.
