  1. Yeah, education payments are whats keeping me from starting ASAP. From what I've read it seems beneficial to start out on a smaller bike (250 or 500cc). Only looked at cruisers and standards really so far, couldn't ever see myself on a rocket.
  2. Anyone out there own/ride a bike? I realize they aren't useful for hauling the clubs around, but I've been looking into saving up some money, taking some AMA certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation classes, and finding myself a nice summer toy and new hobby.
  3. I used to play Trombone is middle and high school...lord was that an adventure. I quit playing a few years back and just picked up a Peavey Millenium 4 BXP Bass Guitar that I've been playing around with. Once I get more free time, I'll take some lessons.
  4. Looks like BioShock has done a really good job of pissing PC people off recently...what with the widescreen compatability problems and the software protection. Only two installs ever? What a joke if it's true.
  5. I had a blast all last year playing Tiger Woods '07 for the 360 with my roommate. We would co-op two-on-two best ball matches against a pair of "Sunday Tigers" The game I can't wait to see come out for the 360 is Mass Effect.
  6. I remember seeing a short video of some Bioshock gameplay and being absolutely stunned by everything I saw. The thing that stuck out most to me was the unbelievable water effects. If I make enough money to finish building my gaming computer this fall I’ll be buying it for sure.
  7. The late William Payne Stewart, in perhaps his most recognizable pose.
  8. I bought Guitar Hero I and II and played them for quite a long time. I even purchased God of War II and left it sitting for a month before even opening it because I was so busy on my Gibson controller. Having it on a university campus was huge, everybody was over all the time. Unfortunately, after 6-8 months or so of each game, I found myself getting slightly bored with it. I found my way back to other games (currently: Knights of the Old Republic) that offered less linear gameplay and more interesting multiplayer modes. It was a blast while I enjoyed it, I just couldn't get into it anymore.

    Soccer?

    I'll always be faithful to my Merseyside Red boys. There's nothing like hearing "You'll Never Walk Alone" on a big match day at Anfield. ...Except shaking our heads at Manchester U fans.
  10. I live in Minnesota, and while everyone hates to see him go, EVERYONE knows he deserves a championship and prays he will get one...knowing full well that it would not happen in Minnesota. In my opinion, it's quality players (and people) like Kevin Garnett in the NBA and Ladanian Tomlinson in the NFL that hold up such a huge part of the image of big American sports.

    Yeah, he does get a lot more attention than he deserves right now, but giving this kind of performance in his late 20's is nothing to laugh at. That and the Panthers and Canucks can't score goals to save their lives. Anybody else watch the all-star game when they had Marty Turco on the microphone out on the ice? That in-game banter was far and away my favorite part of that game.

    My girlfriend bought me a Winnipeg Jets jersey for Christmas last year. Seeing as I was born there, I'll always be a Jets fan. Going to the games and Seeing Selanne, Essensa, and Zhamnov in the blues. Nowadays my focus has really shifted to the Canucks. Luongo is nipping at Marty Brodeur's heels, and the Sedin twins are the best players to watch play together hands down.

  14. I'm a lefty from Canada so Weir is obviously top of the list. My favorite player to watch is Henrik Stenson though.
  15. 1997 Acura 2.2CL. Bought it after working all last summer. It's my first stick, and definitely not my last. I hate driving anything automatic now, I get bored. Someday I'll make it behind the wheel of something with more than 4 cylinders.
  16. I got my graphite shafted clubs when I was about 16. At the time, I was told they were for stronger swingers, but I wanted them because I thought it would make me play like an adult. Either way, I've not swung a steel shafted club in a long time so I'll definitely be trying that. As far as the Nike Ignites go, I hear they're a decent middle of the pack game improvement iron, but nothing to write home about. I read about them here in the Golf.com club test: http://www.golf.com/golf/equipment/0,28420,,00.html That's not to say stay away from them, opinions on clubs are incredibly varied. If I go hit my (soon to be new) irons soon I'll let you know which ones I liked best.
  17. Geez, now I can't wait to get out to golf galaxy this weekend. Lots of love for the Clevelands and Callaways it seems, I'll be swinging everything I've heard here that I can get my hands on.
  18. I live in Eagan, MN just a few minutes south of the Cities but I spend all day working in downtown St. Paul. It's hard for me to give advice to anyone considering the fact that my game seems to be one big slump. Since I'm not one to teach myselfout of a rut, I don't mind dropping $40-$50 on a lesson just to fine-tune things before a round. That assumes of course that its my mechanics and not my state-of-mind thats leading me astray.
  19. I'm using a set of graphite shaft Mizuno Tour XPs that I got 5 or 6 years ago. It's definitely time to retire them, I've been looking around for some good game improvement irons.
  20. Your Whalers logo just made my day.
  21. I have been playing with an old Carbite Mallet model that my parents bought for me a few years back and it has no good feel to it at all. I'm in the market for a new putter soon and the two I liked most after testing were the PING G5i Craz-E and the Odyssey White Hot XG Marxman Mallet.

  23. I have been golfing for about four years but never seriously, and never more than six or seven times a year for my junior league with my buddies. This summer I’ve made a point of getting out approximately once a week with a few outings to the range in between. Now that I’ve developed a strong passion for golfing, and that I’m more serious about the sport, I’m looking at buying a solid set of irons. Seeing as I’m still learning and usually manage a round in the high 90s at best, I’ve been thinking some game-improvement irons would be a good idea. I am not really a power hitter and I haven’t gotten the chance to work with a launch monitor or anything yet. My swing speed is a bit slower than others, and generally I tend to push the ball off to left with my driver (I’m a lefty). The few times it goes straight, it tends to sail into a banana slice. I’m in the process of taking a few private lessons and the advice I’ve received thus far has worked wonders. My stance has changed for the better, my swing speed has increased safely, my head stays down, and I’m aware that I need to roll my hands (this roll was non-existent previously and was causing me to leave the clubface open at address). I’m wondering what your suggestions are concerning a set of game-improvement irons for someone who is serious about improving their game. I’d like them to be able to grow with me, but realistically, I can see myself getting a new set in a few years if my mechanics improve. I plan on getting fitted soon and just wanted to hear any advice you might have on a few different sets. In my research I have read the most about the TaylorMade r7 Draw, Cobra S9, Mizuno MX-19, and Titleist 775.CB irons. Any recommendations? (My price range is flexible, I don't mind paying more if I'll get more in return)
  24. I always seem to play better after one-putting a hole. Granted it might sometimes come after a 7 or and 8...but one putt puts me in a good mood for the walk to the next tee box. It comes and goes fleetingly, but so do my good shots.
  25. The last 5 balls in my dad's and my bucket are strictly for shooting at thee range cart. My dad's bitter at the range pickers who get to drive around in carts. He used to work at a driving range that didn't have a cart for the range picker when he was a teenager...he quit after taking a rising three wood to the chest.
