Re: Golf thread

The closest equivalent in baseball would be striking out on purpose because it's the top of the 5th and its raining so you're trying to make the game official. The PGA and the USGA have been at odds before. I remember John Daly going off on a tirade about how the USGA was just trying to embarrass th...

Rahm pulled the city's bid as FIFA wouldn't guarantee that significant local financing wouldn't be required to host, or something of that nature.


See you guys in DC which will host some games, won't they?

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

I got a notice from the bookface asking if I wanted to join a group called All Things Star Wars. I joined because I thought it might be funny to see what the whining fan boys had to say about Solo. Instead, they seem obsessed with some sort of boycott in an apparent effort to get Kathleen Kennedy fi...

Re: 2017-2018 NHL season

Anyone else think the clock struck midnight on the Knights after Holtby made that unconscious save in Game 2? I certainly did, believe the Caps will finish it off Thursday night. Wouldn't be surprised if the Knights regress badly next season, could see them going from No. 1 seed to missing the play...

A plug for my Son's video game, Toontown Rewritten. It's also a great bit of nostalgic video game fun. We went last year and they had lots of cool old games like Gauntlet. All you can play for $25 or whatever the cost of the ticket is this year.

Re: TV thread

TV Land, Paramount tv, and CMT have all announced they're pulling roseanne reruns from the schedule, and Hulu is dropping it entirely from their streaming library. That seems a little extreme. I'm not condoning what she said. She certainly deserves to be fired. But they didn't pull Seinfeld reruns ...

How do the officials miss a clear cross check when the puck is a foot or two away? Aren't they supposed to be looking at where the puck is? Huge missed call also. Instead of the Caps being up 4-3 with a power play, it's 4-4. Wasn't a cross check. It was just a really good two-handed shove. If your ...

My feeling about Solo is this- If you go in expecting a great, iconic movie you will be disappointed. It is, however, an enjoyable movie set in a universe I enjoy. So, the movie was fine. It won't be a lasting great movie. But I think what we will get out of the franchise from here forward are dece...
