Walked in as morning drive was saying someone died at 49... Can't find anything on news. Did anyone see who it was?

    Phil's grasp on sanity. Very sad.

    Makes sense. Everybody knowS Stamford is the northeast capital of golf. I mean. Yea. Stamford = golf. Was a choice between Stamford and Buffalo. 🤔

    ( attempt at humor in case the sarcasm doesnt come through )

    ESPN is based in Bristol, CT.

    Coincidence?

    Trying to poach their people?

    It would be a good thing to see about half of Golf Channel's on-air staff move on to other things in their career. It's the worst overall collection of on-air talent of any network, including the Tennis Network.

    The heck with GC moving to CT. How about Tony Romo getting 17 million dollars a year from his new CBS contract. Well done Romo.

    And FWIW while some people will go crazy and completely overreact to Comcast/NBC moving GC to Connecticut (seems to have started already) NBC does a pretty good job covering English Premier League soccer from CT.

    Forward thinking? Florida's due to be under water sooner or later. Connecticut, at least Stamford, looks to have another hundred years or so.

    One of the few comapnies that move from South to North. Terrible weather. Much higher taxes(Florida has no income tax), and much more government intrusion and regulation. There usually is a mass exodus from the Northeast to the South.

    GC isn't 49 years old, is it?

    No. GC just celebrated its 25th anniversary in January.

    I think I caught it during on the broadcast of the Honda last night. I wasn't listening properly but I'm sure that the GC said that Slugger Whites brother had died.

    I'm going to guess (and sincerely hope) that is very much a joking and sarcastic comment?

    I think it was a club pro who was a friend of Tiger. And his wife is due in two weeks. Very sad.

    Is that a yes or a no ?

    I'm not privy to corporate costs/budgets/etc. but it seems to me that Florida is cheaper in many respects (rent, wages to name 2 fairly large expenses) than Connecticut.

    They probably already own the headquarters property. And they're cutting payroll.

    ESPN seems to have eeked by over past several decades don't you think? Smart people go south for vacation. Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia all do pretty well.
