Now this, is a countdown board.
All the right words, in all the right places?
Now this, is a countdown board.
Some of this is obvious for experienced players, I'll list them anyway for the benefit of those starting out. Will add as I learn/discover more.
Not crazy about how it was named the Mario Cuomo Bridge (passed in wee hours in secret by his son), but official opening is tomorrow, in my mind, it'll be the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Maybe the Nyack - Tarrytown bridge?
Two bagels from your typical bagel shop, middle is a mini bagel from NYC's Fairway Market. Should have taken a profile photo, the bigger ones are almost twice as tall. That mini bagel is a regular bagel 25 years ago.
Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley
Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring.
No charging stations.
Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis).
Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching.
Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere.
You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis), avoid parking fee. 1/2 hour shuttle w/o traffic too long.
Now more of a student of the swing, notice more of what's going on in short game swings. Seems most of players are "using the bounce" now. Not as much ball way back chop down.
Was hoping to see McIlroy, Day, nope, but got to see almost everyone else.
Was on the fence, didn't think it was worth going, glad I went.
There are the ones that look like chili peppers and the ones that taste like cotton candy are my favorite. These were at Trader Joe's yesterday:
They're ok, cotton candy grapes still my favorite. Sugar Crunch has like a "dry" taste to it, it's a little different from your standard variety green grape, sweeter and harder obviously. I'd still buy it again, because you don't see these everyday, but always on the lookout for cotton candy grapes.
What a jukebox. Maybe another place will take it in give it some TLC.
All things bicycle here.
This guy installed a Loud Bicycle. It's basically a car horn on a bike. Folks, don't be surprised if you hear a car horn and a bike is behind you. He also vlogged his ride via his helmet cam. LOOK AT ALL THOSE BICYCLISTS! You can hear him use the Loud Bicycle at around 05:54. I wondered if the drivers even noticed in time.
In case you don't see it the outline of a box is also arrows pointing outwards. Make. Space.
It annoys me when you go to a range and you can't take face on video. It's one thing if the range is full and you can't place your camera because the stall in front of you is occupied. That's fine. It's when ranges build dividers that block an important part of the swing, impact, some build stalls that block nearly everything. It's twenty freaking seventeen, and video is available to the masses, hell, you could even say most people have high speed video available now. In H forking D. No, in 4 f**king K. Maybe even 8K.
The wherewithal to use video is another thing, but imho, if you're building a range, you should consider alternative setups that allow customers to take face on video. Privacy at a public range is for nought, anyone who is curious enough can just stand behind you and gawk (get out of my view you nosey body). The grill dividers are ok, you can kind of see through them, I dunno, why have divders at all? You don't see them at a grass range. Dividerless, maybe people will be less inclined to do something stupid, like anything they come up with drunk or happy Gilmores.
Healthy enough for ya?
People don't listen to the signs, feed the birds anyway. No, he still didn't fly away after I stopped recording. I also recited some Edgar Allen Poe at it, don't think it was appreciated.
Route 12 Utah, outdoor seating even better.
Traffic cop telling me to thread the needle.
At Gotham West Market downstairs. A room w/a toilet, kind of anticlimactic.
So the barber gives me his card, hey this guy looks familiar.
Not sure which aircraft carrier this was, but imagine hitting balls in the wee hours of the morning and then this passes in front of you? Those white spots are seamen standing at attention, all surrounding the ship. Such a big object makes not a peep of sound.
Commenting on a post of a before and after video, one redditor asked what was the difference. Apparently he/she saw none. This was the before and after top of backswing positions. And the guy got upvotes. The place is ADD.
