  1. Exactly. I played D1 college tennis. I remember several times saying "bring Agassi on, bring any of them on!" Could I beat them? Almost certainly not....but in my mind, to play at my peak, I needed to think that way. I remember being down at Van der Meer's in 1990 and getting to hit some balls with Stefan Edberg. It was amazing...did I come away respecting him yeah, but there was a part of me that thought "On the right day, I can beat that guy"....I have no problem with what BK said. Do I think he'll do it? Probably not, but if that's what he needs to believe to play at his peak....good on him... M
  2. Yeah, but you can't play with that attitude. I couldn't. Unless I believed I was better than everyone, I'd never win. We're all different psychologically. Some people, in order to play well, have to believe they are better than everyone....some have to play with a chip on their shoulder and be pissed off all the time. We're all different. I see pro athletes as patients all the time, and most of them are more like BKs attitude than not.
  3. This....FFS, If I was on the PGA tour, I'd have the same mentality. If you aren't thinking that you could win every single major and you don't want to dominate your competition, why the heck are you even playing? Jordan didn't want to just beat you. He wanted to humiliate you. He wanted in his own words "to bury you at center court". He was also selfish. After one of their playoff wins, when he had lit up the score board, early in his career, one of the coaches said "Michael, nice job, but remember, there is no "I" in team".....Jordan turned around and said "Yeah, but there is in WIN, isn't there!" Tiger had that mentality. I don't want to just beat you, I want to humiliate to you. Jack, heck wasn't Jack the first one to say what Brooks said about most of the guys on tour can't win a major.. Ironic that everyone here is beating him up for believing in himself when every other great athlete was the same. Tom Brady...same. He still keeps his 6th round draft pick announcement in his locker. Looks at it before every practice and every game, and says it just makes him want to prove to everyone how wrong they all are. Federer said once "The man who wins is the man who thinks he can". What's wrong with Brooks thinking he can?
  4. I’ll let y’all read this…make your own judgments, nice to know you can judge your progress in golf by a number, but not by playing golf…LOL. We do, it’s called your score.
  5. Who else thinks Sam Burns look likes a '70s porn star with that stache? LMAO M
  6. Love SRV, when I started playing guitar, he was a HUGE influence.... Also, Randy Rhoads, was a huge influence....
  7. That's okay, the only proper football team in the Big 10 starts in the #4 spot. Go Buckeyes! M
  8. I actually have a slightly different take. While I think it is incredibly lame to yell things at players, I think it is nonsense that the tour is reacting this way. Especially regarding "Brooksie". I think you're lame if you say that to Bryson, but I also think it is harmless. Bryson and these other pros CHOSE to become famous figures/athletes. Doesn't matter that they don't make what MLB or NBA stars make, many of them, Bryson included make millions per year. Part of that money is to put up with the BS of being a superstar. He chose to put himself in the public light, he chose to be a professional golfer. No one made him. That means, in any sport, including golf, putting up with heckling, etc. Don't like it Bryson....quit golf. Go do something else. I think too many of these young athletes are WAY too soft....Bryson included. Tiger had guys wearing shirts with his f'n mug shot on them.....Bryson and many of these players need to get a lot tougher. Totally disagree with the tours take here.
  9. This is spot on....lets see, he's now compared himself to Einstein, George Washington, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos.....oh boy....
  10. Page is sloppy. He's a creative guitarist, very creative, but technically....meh, there's much better. M
  11. I'm a bit older, slower, and softer than back then. When I was fighting, I was 215#, 6'0" with like 4.5% body fat. Now, I'm 245#, 6'0", and like 28% body fat.....LOL....
  12. LOL...Maybe, she was kind of a b****, but, meh, she was my GF at the time. I mean, this was a long time ago... M
  13. Violence at PGA events happen sometimes. I was at one many years ago, late 1990's, Firestone in Akron, with my GF at the time. Drunk ***** falls into her and spills his beer on her. Which was bad enough, then he had to get mouthy and call her a "F'n B****". Well, that led to some words between him and I. I was fighting and training MMA at that time, and gotten out of the military 2 years earlier after serving as a Corpsman with Marine Recon. He took a swing and got to take a little nap courteous of a rear naked choke. Security came running up and grabbed me at first but several witnesses explained what happened. Always wondered what happened to that dude.....
  14. Okay, I was bored, and just searched from 2013 to now through all convocation baccalaureate rolls at SMU. There is not one single mention of Bryson DeChambeau as either a graduate or candidate for a baccaluareate degree in either the arts or sciences. Even his wikipedia page says he "studied physics" doesn't say he graduated, etc. M
