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?

We drove over the old one in May. It was sketchy. 

It's been sketchy for more than a decade. This project was long overdue.

Yeah, was way past due date, not built for the capacity and weight it currently, well, used to support. Let's wait for the last minute to fix it when it'll cost the most stratagem. Sigh.

The old bridge was in bad shape. I hated driving over the large steel plate "patches" when they were wet. I haven't been over the new section yet but, it'll still be the Tappan Zee to me. It'll be hard to call it something else after knowing it as the TZ Bridge for 5+ decades. 

I wonder what my EZPass bill will call it... MCB?..Cuomo? Mario? Super Mario?  LOL

Oh, and I love the fact that they pulled out the toll booths and one doesn't have to jockey around / slow down for the EZPass / pay toll lanes, etc.

    • Making up a poll where 100%of sane responders say the same thing is not "discussing". You may as well ask whether anyone thinks baseballs might replace golf balls in some major tournaments at some time in the future. In EVERY genuine classification, Tiger exceeds Snead, in case you were wondering. Except, perhaps smoking.
    • I saw this on the local news:   It's heart breaking.   OREM, Utah (AP/Meredith) — Authorities say a 6-year-old Utah girl has died after her father accidentally hit her with a golf ball. Police say the ball struck the girl in the back of the head on Monday morning, while the father and daughter were golfing at Sleepy Ridge Golf Course in Orem. The ball collided with the base of her neck. Lt. Trent Colledge with the Orem Police Department says she was flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City in critical condition. She died from her injuries later that evening. Family members later identified the girl as Aria Hill. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000 to cover her funeral expenses. "We are so grateful for all the love, support, and prayers made in our behalf during this difficult time," a statement on the page reads. "We've truly felt comforted. Aria was the sassiest girl in the world. She was silly, spunky, creative, unique, and so so full of love for everyone she came in contact with. There is a huge hole in our hearts that she has taken with her back to Heaven...Fly high my little angel" Police are investigating but are not planning to pursue charges because it appears to have been a tragic accident. 
    • Ah, just checked the op’s hcp, he stated it as 11.x. Well the answer on the original question is that its a good thing. Your handicap will go up and reflect your true golf abilties at the moment. Looks to me like your current handicap is a bit to low. 
    • In who's view was it embedded? Was it solidly embedded? The referee may well have determined it was not. Rule 23-1 no longer exists of course.
    • I certainly wouldn't buy a book about golf entitled Highest Score Wins. I'm wondering how you're shooting north of 100 in competition as an 11 handicap.   When you say you're taking more time on certain aspects, do you mean towards improving or are you taking five minutes for each putt? There are plenty of good players who have aspects of their game that significantly lag behind.  Stan Utley made some good money in professional golf, even before his teaching career, despite not driving it much past your average scratch player.  Boo Weekley won on the PGA Tour despite putting at about a ten handicap level.  You don't have to improve all aspects of your game uniformly.  If you have a glaring weakness (compared to your general ability level), work on that a little more.  For example, I was having 5-7 strokes lost putting per round a month ago, so I upped my putting practice.  Now I'm a little worse than my handicap level at it, but it isn't this horrible thing standing out.   Of course, figuring out what a glaring weakness really is is difficult.  I encourage you to carefully read the following thread:  not just the title, but the content, paying particular attention to the suggestions from professionals and low handicaps who comment on it.  It should help guide your practice in a good way.
