Par 4, 17th., that is.

He drove the 347 yard par for the same distance that Bubba Watson reached, and Bubba is considered one of the longest hitters on tour.

I don't agree. He's rusty, sure, but his swing looks healthy.

Tiger 5 over, until hitting a bomb on 12, then a 5-iron to within 9" for an eagle. The same nine inches you can cram up your @**, Woodcock.

ENOUGH ALREADY. JUST PLAY THE &#$* GAME! Oh, but wait...there's no doubt more juicy tidbits to come. More fire alarms going off in the middle of the night. More he-said, he-said. Well, except for Marshawn Lynch, who says nothing: Ad nauseam #1: "...I’m here. I’m available for y’all. I’m here.... Continue reading

I was just about to post something new, but upon reading Woodcock's comment above, it will just have to wait until tomorrow. Let's all thank Woodcock!

Who and where said this? "Garo Yepremian on his infamous Super Bowl pass: '42 years later I realize I should have deflated the ball to get a better grip on it.'"

That's pretty funny. Vintage Kazaam.

BB, It's easy to do a Johnny Most impersonation, provided he is willing to swallow ten live frogs.

Tom, Those who see nothing here will wonder how Brady's efficiency might somehow not fare the same. Will someone who has tweaked his world so favorably for all these games be able to adapt and overcome? Count me as one who expects a difference now that an independent equipment manager (bears dude) will avail Brady with the legal ball. Too bad it's not going to be foul weather. Otherwise, Mr. Perfect could be looking like Chad Henne.

Tom, The Pats had a long-standing equipment manager who died from leukemia about a year ago. One has to wonder if this was something that goes back years. If so, then perhaps the new guy was not as careful. But the knowledge that Brady "prefers" soft balls eventually evolves to Brady "STRONGLY prefers" soft balls, and those who provide for him aim to please...Meanwhile, at the end of the season... Oh! Looky here what nice tip (to insure promptness) Mr. equipment manager found inside his thank you card! My guess, and because I tend to have a perverse mind. The new equipment guy felt brazen and carries with him a pump needle and a condom. He would insert the needle tipped condom into each ball until the condom, ahem...filled up (about 2 lbs.). A skilled equipment guy could fill 12 condoms pretty quickly using that technique. I even have this feeling that if the Patriots were about to go into a particularly tough game. One requiring Brady to have high completion rates. Well, equipment guy would exchange the regular condom for that of a magnum.

Back in 1975 I was ready to leave Miami and fly off the nest, sort of speak, to as distant a place as appeared attractive. I had my driver's license suspended for a whole year after accumulating more speeding tickets than Mario Andretti might have equally received. Not being one to stand still for any length of time, I went everywhere on my Raleigh 10-speed, including a air trip to Boston with my bike and a backpack. It was the 1976 bicentennial and I pedaled everywhere during that festive week. Liked the city and the schools, but I digress. The point being that, unlike so many of my friends, It was obvious that I was ready to move on and away from my Miami nest. The fact that I started enjoying other types of music like jazz fusion was an easy tipoff that, unlike my more provincial friends who were still exclusively rock oriented, I was being true to my nature and a willing explorer of farther regions and tastes. Liking this group's work, along with music by Weather Report, was a sure sign that I would not be sticking around the 305 much longer. http://youtu.be/ZVetTbHiwjw

These guys were accepted as part of the tribe back then. Always liked them. A sampling of this song's first 22 or so stanzas reveals a rather conservative stance. Pretty clear for a bunch of long-hairs during that time. http://youtu.be/oH5iiH1z_2c

the shadow knows, I'm curious about your view on this. Do you think that Brady cheated? In other words, do you think he knowingly "arranged" to have his favorable soft balls placed on his side of the field over these past key games, or is everyone just trying to impugn his character for reasons of spite.

Competition, that is.

Writer, You made some good points about free agency and how the Celts were able to keep winning formulas together longer. Frankly, I find myself more in Kazaam's camp which holds the position that practically any professional team playing today would destroy the best of yesteryear. Players today are collectively much stronger, leaner, better trained, coached. Not to mention how completion and sheer numbers continue to produce top specimens. If somehow one could time-travel that Russell team that won so many championships into today's era Red Auerbach would live years longer on account of not smoking cigars.

btw, I hope you weren't thinking of the word "trite," you ignoramus.

Brady is lying, misleading at best. There is no way he goes "all concentration mode" upon entering the field, as he told the world yesterday at the presser. No way that any professional, one used to their particular piece of equipment, cannot instantly tell when and if it is out of whack in some way. This guy has been handling footballs of all kinds since he was five. How many times have you seen tennis players refuse balls for reasons of touch? Or change out rackets to a less-than, or more-than string tension? Or a baseball pitcher throw back a new baseball to the ump? What, does anyone think that if you secretly substituted any PGA tour player's XX driver with one with just one X he would not instantly know? Tom Brady doesn't know it yet, but he just became Lance Armstrong.

The league should just penalize the Patriots by having Brady play with a medicine ball in the shape of a football. Let things end up however they end up.

If rings make the man and Russell's eleven place him atop all others (including Michael, haha...), then one has to be as rigid, holding that ridiculous premise throughout the rest of the players who played in the NBA. Karl freaking Malone. Only the man who sits in second place all-time scoring with 36,928 points (more than double that of Russell's 14,522), was not as good as these following fine gentlemen, each who had the distinction of having won TWO rings. Thereby, and by Mr. Woodcock's own finite -- motor oil is motor oil -- litmus test for determining which player is better, Player A or Player B...we submit: Luke Walton - two rings. Better than Karl Freaking Malone. D.J. Mbenga - two rings... Adam Morrison - two rings... Jack Haley - two rings... (Well, I may have to take this one back. Haley was a heck of a team player...he was the team's designated babysitter, for Dennis Rodman. That has to count for something). Please!

We have to excuse our geriatric friend. Too many Jim Beams, far many more bowls of ganja. He has become that old goat that we as kids would all laugh at. Waving his cane all about, as he would curse -- "come back here, you young whippersnappers! I'll teach ya to mess with my Perry Como records...show some respect to the greatest singer of them all!!!" Bill Russell...hahahahaha...

BIG DISTRACTIONS IN BOTH CAMPS: First, there is crotch-grabbing Marshawn Lynch. A key player for the Seattle Seahawks. A player who was just finned $20,000 for grabbing his package after scoring a touchdown. Is it a big deal? Probably not. At least not in of it by itself. However, this... Continue reading
