    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    That's not likely. The host city can't handle moving everything out a week. The hotels are all likely booked already. Not to mention everyone with tickets having to rearrange travel and their lives in general. They'll figure something out, but I highly doubt it's this.

    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    I work in this line of business (though not the NFL) and can tell you that, while they definitely have contingency plans for suspension/resumption of play, it's still a massive headache and ordeal to put them in place and are usually weather based so there's generally a head start. It's less an...

    Patricia is also the OL line coach, so 2 birds, one stone.

    Red Sox Rumors - Just Kidding

    How hard did they try? What were the offers from the Sox that X turned down? What offer would you have made to keep him from free agency? Do you think Boras had no idea that he'd get something around what he got as an FA and it was just lucky that he did?

    4G Android phone megathread

    I've been in Fi for years and have had Pixels 3, 4, 5, 6 and a 7 on the way. Also a former GV guy that jumped to Fi. The short answer is that it's basically a seamless transition. You can use .messages for web on you computer for texts. It's just Google Messages for texts on your phone...

    Week 11 (Game 10!): Patriots host Jets

    He was running forward in a full sprint. Even if Wilson was standing directly in front of him he would have gone flying forward. The NFL coming out saying that it wasn't a foul isn't convincing you so I'm pretty sure nothing will.

    NFL: News and transactions

    I would also think a big motivation is that people will sign up for Amazon Prime on or before the biggest shopping day of the year and will then decide to do a little shopping before the game.

    It's just the balance. You don't hear a lot of players look back on making a putt that the best of the best miss most of the time and think that you really should have shot 1 stroke worse. The focus on the one miss you "should have made" without consideration for the bunch you made but...

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    There's got to be a term for it, but it's such an odd phenomenon in golf that people always seem to make note of the missed 4 footer that gets made at an 80% rate on 4-5 footers on tour, but don't think about how many 15-20 footes that made that get made at an 18% range on tour. We're all...

    2022 PGA Tour

    Or it show that 54 hole events and shotgun starts should only be used in the most extreme cases when playing a real golf tournament isn't possible?

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    I had a friend hit it straight off the toe of his driver, off the tee marker and right back between his legs. Remarkably, that's not nearly the best "right between the legs" shot I've seen in person. A few years ago I was playing in a match play event with the general public filling the course...

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    This stuff is fairly typical at charity/corporate scramble type events. There are usually people there that have never hit a ball before and are just in it for the networking or charity aspect. Also, and you know this, I can't begin to number the amount of times I've straight shanked a ball...

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    Watched one of my good friends (former Bandon caddie to complete the connection) almost lost his sole remaining testicle while he was visiting me in Denver. We were coming down 15 and the group going up 16 we're in our fairway. We stood about 15 feet directly to the side of them. The guy took...

    Bandon is certainly much easier and has the a better closing stretch but I'm glad to see most recognize that Trails is the best actual golf course. There are no bad holes and it's a totally different course from the tips than it is up a set or two. It can be easy but it can be a monster in the...

    Yeah, but they shoot in the low 80s ;)

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    Just play Pac if you have it booked. It's the "better" course. The truth is that you can't go wrong with any course and you'll have a great time at any of them. It's the best place on earth. @FL4WL3SS is right though. Book a time at The Preserve either before or after your round. It won't...

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    The bar was closed or the first 2 this year and today I had a little hok-in-one insurance of $150 but I think it's still going to be rough when I see the bill. There were 90 members there today. Funny thing, there was an ace in day one of the event yesterday too. It was her second one of the...

    I could not have played worse for 13 holes in our member/member today. Like, couldn't hit the ball in the air kid of bad. Skulls into lakes. Chunks into woods. It was gross. Then on our 14th hole (4 on our course) I hit an approach to 1 foot for birdie, missed a 10 foot birdie putt for tap...

    2023 rule changes

    Seems like we'll see a lot more pitch-outs. Pitcher reached his limit in pick-off attempts? Runner knows he's got a free pass to (a closer) 2nd base? Pitch-out seems like the only way to prevent an easy steal.

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    Golf is a funny game. Played 36 today. Started out bogey, triple, bogey to go 5 over after 3 holes and then played the rest of the round at -2 followed by another -2 front and another -2 back for a day of 74/67 (par 71).
