You're asking this on a golf forum?   It's always the Masters.   It's not like there are many options in Michigan anyway.

I'm a Bears fan. Depending on who you ask, it's been about 14 or 35 years since they've been a priority. Golf all the way. 

Golf will be less exciting because less balls will go in the hole since no one is screaming at the ball to go in the hole.

My Facebook memory from 2014 popped up today noting that Cry-tler's 6 years remaining in his contract extension meant I could continue to go golfing the next 86 Sundays during football season.

I wish I could say that.  While the pandemic seems to have upped everyone’s rounds , it cut mine to nothing.  Went from 3/4 a week to 1 tops . All year.  2020 has given no quarter to me.  I have 7 huge oaks down around the house from the last hurricane , so a chainsaw is in my future for the next 7-8 years ( lol) .  Then we have a 120 year old barn to rebuild that one of the trees destroyed.  
 

irony of it all is that I’m playing the best golf of my life.   I destroyed a guy in interclub match play on Saturday ( first round deep into the 60s in a while )  , and It was with a 20 year old set of irons I pulled form the closet.  I just shake my head , came home and continued to hang crown molding in the new room we added a year ago.   Yes. Aside from a business to run , a 12 year old at home in school , and now a forest of oaks down on my barn , I was in the middle of a house renovation when the pandemic  hit.  Luckily the electrical was 100 % complete so it’s very livable.  Anyway.   Enjoy the play. Only golf I’ll see is from the ladder while painting most likely.  🤦‍♂️

Congratulations on posting the not so humble brag of the year candidate! 😆 Well done!

 

Since no one else has said it...I will be playing golf Saturday, smh first guy to say this and we’re on page 2, while I record the Masters and watch in the afternoon. Then Sunday will be a day for golf in one room and football in the other-wife is an NFL fanatic.

Lol.  Hey !   Sometimes you have to pat yourself on the back if nobody else will.  Besides.  This was payback.   See my theme song below !

 

 

and I’ll agree.  If the rain stays away I’ll be playing Saturday morning too.

Since the Bears play Monday night I'll watch both. Although for the Bears game my thumb will be hovering over the off button.

Our NFL team is having a good year, and the game starts at 4:00 on CBS.  The CBS Masters coverage goes from 10:00 to 3:00.  So, unless there is a playoff, I don't have to choose.

 

Saturday? The Masters.

Yeah me too. The Bills don't play till 4:05 so once The Masters is done I can flip over.  As for any other games, I only care if I have money on them and whether I'm watching or not won't change the outcome. 🙂

I haven't been able to watch CFB for some reason. I think the lack of fans (Big 10) makes it seem eh. I have been watching NFL though. I'm not sure I understand why they feel different to me. I will likely be on the Master with flipping back and forth Sunday depending on how it is going. It will not be the same without the roars as others have said. That is the magic of the tournament.

I grew up in NYC...so college football holds zero interest for me, and my alma mater had no football team.

 

And, 40 years ago, I made the worst decision of my life...I chose the Jets over the Giants.  Fortunately, they don't air them here in LA...well, except for last night's game against the Pats...at least it was entertaining for the full broadcast.

 

I can't take any more disappointment!

I don't watch pro football anymore so Sunday is wide open for golf. Saturday is open too as my college team has covid and the game has been postponed. They suck anyway so the Masters is a no brainer as it would be even if they were having a good season. The Masters is my favorite sporting event so nothing gets in the way of watching it. Not unless I croke beforehand. 😞

Masters in November still seems “off” to me.  My wife and I are going away Saturday and Sunday and I’ll be chasing pheasants Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. I’m still shocked when I set this up a couple weeks ago I didn’t even think about the tournament. I’ll watch plenty of Live From and watch at work live and taped in the evening but missing the final round seems strange. NFL football? Quit watching in a significant way when my girls were in middle and elementary school - I just couldn’t transition from the teams I loved to watch growing up and through college to the new era and we always had things to do Sunday afternoons. Honestly, I’ve watched almost no golf since it resumed. Played today though!

I posted my response in this thread without even thinking. When we finished the basement last year and I set up the “man cave”, I put up twoTVs. I can watch both!  Only two problems, I have to work, and lately I usually end up turning off the football game by middle of the second half because we’re so bad.

I'll have it on at work Th-Fr, but it really just becomes noise like the stereo. Watching golf at work very overrated if you work, lol. 

 

Denver fan? Or are you talking about the Huskers?

I have Dish and can record/watch 16 shows simultaneously. I rarely watch anything live anymore because I hate paying to watch commercials. While the Masters is fairly commercial free it does have a lot of human interest back stories that I fast forward through.

Masters all the way... Don't think we're ever gonna see another one in November. Pitt's a tremendous disappointment and Augusta National is a hell of a lot prettier then seeing the boys in black and gold try to play down to the Bungals.

Im from nyc and was huge college fooball watcher. But that was in the days of Hershel and Bo and...the Boz. Flutie vs Bernie Kosar, epic! Miami “The U” vs. Notre Dame. Fuhgedaboudit.

 

As far as the jets, you old enough to remember the New York Sack Exchange?! And the “mud bowl” vs Miami?
