 If you are a grown man playing a professional sport and you even let the "not black enough" thing slip into your conscious decision-making process, you deserve to lose. Ask yourself this - if Russell Wilson grew dreds and wore Lil' Wayne t-shirts in the locker room and ended every sentence with "word is bond," would the Seahawks have a different record? Then ask yourself if the answer to the first question is "no," would you feel better knowing your QB is "black enough?"...
You're right, of course, but I always thought it was a lousy rule. Even the words "intentional grounding" mean exactly what a spike is, intentionally grounding the ball. It's become the 4th time out.
I depends on what you want the stimp meter to read. At 13, it's dry toilet paper. At 4, well...
Not so sure about your last statement. The passing game from pre-1998 (before Peyton) and now are vastly different, largely because of Peyton. Brady, Brees, Rivers, Rogers - all now routinely throw for 5000 yards because the league actually changed its rules to make passing easier because people became infatuated with big-play passing. Manning ushered those changes in. His intellectual prowess and attention to detail are also unmatched in history, which raised the bar on...
 True for most young bucks... I'd be curious to see how far my skill level now would hit the ball with the same clubs I used 10 years ago. I know I was stronger, lighter, more flexible, and more athletic 10 years ago, but my swing was so bad and golf so frustrating I had already stopped playing the game for 3 years and didn't begin again until 2011. Screwing around at the driving range with my baseball buddies in high school, I could get lucky and hit one 300 yards...
Well, I was also an English teacher for 4 years, so I can't help myself... I'm glad to see you appreciate government work, though there's no doubt there are myriad problems with it. Ironically, I think big government bureaucracy, even at the state and local levels, is a tremendous problem that I may actually do a PhD thesis on some day because I care greatly about it. Working for most of my life in the private sector and now for about 5 in the public (with two in grad...
 None taken from this career government worker who works in finance and procurement and was an A and B honor student. ... Just thought it was funny that YOUR spelling must show that you were a C or D student in English class, BTW. Anyway, government bureaucrats, especially at the Federal level, who make meaningful decisions about budgeting and procurement are usually very intelligent, college-educated people with advanced degrees in management and finance from top-tier...
Does anyone know of one of these demo videos where a guy demos an Rbladez iron, then a Speedblade, then an Rs1 on the same day in the same conditions? I think that would be more telling than looking back at launch monitor stats on YouTube video from 6 months ago.
I just got back from the future in my 2050 time machine. The new TM irons have:   - fusion reactors behind each club face to increase distance by up to 500 yards! Just adjust your swing speed and reactor power output to control distance. - adjustable clubfaces that go from frictionless to sandpaper quality to control desired spin - a 25 degree pitching wedge. The 2 iron is -5 degrees to assist with compressing the ball. - electromagnetic field variance technology to...
This might be off topic, but on the subject of coaching, I've never played on a "team" where individuals competed in the field of play, (well, except wrestling for one year in H.S.), but I've always been curious - does a captain or team coach really matter that much, honestly, in PGA Tour-level golf? Aside from pairing people for four ball, etc., determining who sits out and who plays (as in Phil this year), what else does a coach do? In team sports, the schemes, plays,...
