  1. Rest easy Breck.... You helped a complete stranger find an apartment for his niece in your hometown and looked out for her best interest. I will never forget that. This is one of the best pieces of golf advise I ever received which was shared from Breck on this forum. I hope that posting Stratton's putting practice routine can help others that may come across this thread. Putting: Ladder drill1. Start at 3 feet, make 15 in a row.2. Back up to 6 feet. Make 12 of 15.3. Back up to 9feet. Make 10 of 15.4. Back up to 20 feet. Putt 10 balls. Each ball should finish inside a 2 foot radius. Try to make at least one.**If at any step you fail to reach the goal, you must start over at 3 feet.
  2. That game winner by Booker was one of the best I’ve seen since LeBron against Toronto in the playoffs. Booker is Kobe’esk when it comes to making tough shots.
  3. I don’t know if you recall but last year in the NFL thread we had a discussion of “what QB would you take” I think you chose Russell Wilson and I chose LJ, this was pre playoffs. I think LJ is the most difficult player for defensive coordinators to plan against, nothing is more dangerous in the NFL then explosive run plays because it makes defenders into decision makers. LJ is absolutely amazing, but right now it just isn’t close, maybe after this season it will be a different story. The top 100 as I understand it is “as of today”. Mahomes playmaking, throws and ability to come through at the end are on another level.
  4. Great to see the NBA back. It’s strange for me to say but I feel proud for these guys. I honestly feel like they have sacrificed something. I don’t remover seeing LeBron play a worst game then that. He looked very rusty.
  5. I’m a huge Lamar fan. But cmon! This is like giving the MVP to Karl Malone over Jordan, everyone knows who the best player in the league is. Dude got 4th and Brady was 14th. It’s crazy how desperate we are to even discuss this.
  6. Yeah I thought that playoff run put that topic to bed. I wonder if everyone was high when they voted.
  7. The Jamal Adams trade is interesting. Two firsts, a third and a contract friendly potential starter is a lot for a non “premier position” player. I love Adams as a player, I think if the Niners took him over Thomas a few years ago then we have a different SB outcome, he’s that type of player. Seattle just has a lot of holes Ike pass rush and O line to spend that type of capitol on a luxury player. I think they must really undervalue the next few years of picks because of the likelihood of no college ball and they are going all in with Wilson and Petey to win now. I think the Niners success and strengths also have a lot to do with this, gotta do what you can to stop that run game and Kittle.
  8. Dallas has really botched the Dak situation IMO. If they are to extend him after this season there is no way it's less then what he would have signed for now case and point would be that he only gets extended if he has a good season. Dallas has a good roster and a chance to be a contender, all signs point to a strong season for Dak. If they franchise him again it goes to what like 43 million and it's all a cap hit. Dude might get paid 70 million over two seasons. Lets say they don't extend him, where are they at? Looking for a QB and back to square one. I just don't see him not signing an extension in Dallas and it's going to be for more then they could have gotten him for. Mahomes contract is loaded a few years from now, he has small cap hit's the next few seasons and then it takes off. So they have a few more years to sign more talent before they get handcuffed. On the other hand, the Chris Jones contract is front loaded.
  9. I think you can say that for a few players over their careers. In other words Brady at his best is not better then Mahomes, Steve Young, Rodgers, or Manning at their best. What makes Brady special is his longevity and resume of work.
  10. The NorCal coast near the Oregon border is one of the special places on this earth. Trinidad and the Coastal Redwoods are breathtaking.
  11. Oak Creek is opening Friday. Golf only, no range yet.
  12. Oak shut down to do a ton of maintenance, bunkers, cart paths, etc. Not closing down permanently.
