Dolphins schedule is out and by the looks of it they will be lucky to post four wins. Yikes!

Had my analysis close to spot on. Mr. Woodcock called me up an hour or two before the start of the Masters asking me if I wanted to join in on a “Masters pool.” He explained that for $20 each participant picks five golfers, and once finished, one adds each golfers winnings and whoever winds up with the highest winnings wins the pot. Oh but for a par here and there. I finished 18th out of 150 with my picks of: Tiger, McIlroy, Kutcher, Day, Molinari. My bad. I should have exchanged Koepka for McIlroy. Why? I forgot to recognize who were 1, 2, 3 and in the hunt during the last two Majors: Tiger, yes, Molinari, yes, but also Koepka. $3k. Oh, well. 18th. Is respectable.

Hmm... Tiger had zero wins between the years of 2009-2017 (Obama), but plenty under Bush and now withTrump. Another thing we can blame on BO. 😂

Watched nearly every minute of The Masters, including countless hours of Golf Channel analyzes. By now everyone on here should know that I’m a huge golf junkie. Especially, the majors. Watching this tournament, I couldn’t help but notice what Jack Nicklaus also noted (after he called into Golf Central in a phone interview), namely that Tiger was using his experience, skill, and “smarts” during every shot Sunday. Jack commented that Tiger was placing his shots in the middle of each green, being patient not to go for the million dollar shot. Not surprisingly, Tiger ended up with the highest “green in regulation” statistical number than every other golfer in the field. Equally joyous to watch were the many fellow golfers who afterwards praised the achievement. Comments and congratulatory handshakes from Johnson (Zack), Fouler, JT, Finau, Molinari, Poulter, Mick, Reed and Langer. The best coming from who many view as the best physically talented current golfer - Brooks Koepka, who laughingly admitted to giving it all he had, but “that man is good!”

BB, I have to hand it to your boy, Sergio. Most impressive to see how he gritted out Saturday to be in contention for his eventual victory on Sunday and over the best golfers in the world. Garcia is DA-MAN!

the shadow knows, I’m approaching seven years now here in Texas, so naturally, it comes as no surprise that I’m beginning to pull for certain state teams and players. My current favorite NFL player being Patrick Malhomes (Texas Tech). So yes, I was indeed pulling for them over Virginia. To these eyes the game was decided the moment the refs gave Virginia the ball with under two minutes to go after what was not incontrovertible evidence to overturn the original whistle on that out of bounds call. Oh well.

The guy was miserable while doing his job, by-way-of trying to keep his natural personality in check. How much did the NBA fine him? I believe close to $2M! He got to be so fearful of what the league might charge him every time he made the most innocuous of comments. A good guy in spite of his liberalism. Then again, that’s par for most every celebrity these days.

Given the lack of talent, youth, inexperience and lack of flow new coaching brings, it’s going to be very challenging for them to win more than three or four games.

Interesting observation by Salguero on how the Dolphins will need to fill out their 90 player team by bringing in upwards of 25 undrafted players. https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/armando-salguero/article228769289.html

This past Saturday, Sergio Garcia showed the world why many think of him a spoiled, arrogant child. His nickname of “El Niño” ought to include the adjective - ‘Malcriado.” Austin, Texas holds The World Match Play. A sudden elimination type tournament typically attended by the very best golfers in the world. Those who watched the action unfold on Saturday got to see matches where eight golfers would be eliminated and four would move on. Typically we have come to know the kind of etiquette professional golfers display both in victory and defeat. They are gracious almost to exaggeration. It is -personally- one of the elements that I like about the sport. Yet here we had Sergio, again showing his true colors. Sergio was playing his match against Matt Kuchar and on the seventh hole missed a four foot putt. A putt which would have had him win the hole. His miss was close enough to have any opponent concede any further strokes on given hole. However, Garcia did not allow time for Kuchar to “give him” the putt. Instead and in frustration, Garcia slapped the ball with the back side of his putter missing the tap in resulting in a loss of hole. Kuchar acknowledged that he would have conceded the putt had Sergio only waited for the formality. The audience next sees Garcia on the eighth green, again with another four foot putt. We see him miss the putt for another loss of hole, this time he follows up with a wild full swing, as if to drive the ball off the green, just missing. The anouncer next shows the TV audience Garcia arguing with Kuchar as they were walking down the next fairway, Garcia yelling to Kuchar that he should have conceded that last four-footer to even out, or “make up” for the one Kuchar should have granted earlier. Can you believe this guy!? Unbelievable.

He brings with him a recent two-year completion rate of 63.6 percent of his passes for 3,469 yards, 24 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 14 games (10 starts).

Looks like Ernie is going to have to take the bench, Woodcock. They just signed Ryan Fitzpatrick for two years at $11M. I’m not sure I like this move. Fitzpatrick is decent and perhaps the best leader that position has seen since another past Jet, Pennington.

We are in good hands for the 2020 draft. Jake Rudock and David Fales. A couple of sixth round picks guiding our team.

Wow! They traded him to what is tantamount, a 2020 fifth round pick.

BB, You must be cruising today at work, not having any major deliverables. “Hmm, let me see if I can rile up OC to get my day to go faster.” “Best days behind him?” Duh! So are Sergio, Mick, Couples, and every single golfer or athlete over 35. Now, you did take notice on why he’s at -3 instead of at -7 and tied for sixth with two days to go, right? The seventeenth green is fun and exciting to watch, but the last thing to a golfer’s ability. You’re asked to hit a 25 yard island from 146 yards away with winds blowing. There’s never been a shot more at the mercy of “the golf gods” than that one. Adam Scott, hardly a golf stiff, posted a 12 on that hole one time. As for the Lakers, they are not a living person prone to the demise brought on by age. Still, and viewing it in a more universal light, I would say you’re probably right. But so would be the Celtics (best days). Gone are the days when either team operated under conditions allowing each to amass 16 championships.

I was watching as that idiot Jeff Van Gundy blurted out that asinine view. That guy has never uttered one positive view on the Lakers. He’s a hater of the first degree. Transparent in his desire to stir up sh** - and I’m taking your suggestion, BB, as one in the same. Just for the sake of argument, imagine were they to do just that. Would any future superstar ever, ‘EVER’ trust the Lakers with their own career moves? The answer is a resounding NO! The Lakers would be viewed as the last place to wish to play for. This is nothing but goating and trolling.

I don’t believe in taking half measures. You either set out to win (because you can), or you suck so as to get the best players you can. Anything short of those two diametrically opposed ends and you’re just fooling yourself and more importantly, your fans. That middle ground is well known to Dolphins fan. False hope and dishonest self assessments have been two of the primary reasons for these .500 playoff-less seasons. So to reiterate, they need to massively suck. Like in 1-15 style! Bringing in Tyrod Taylor is too good, as he might actually be able to win five games or so.They should start any of the current QBs they have already on the roster. Either that or sign someone like José Canseco to be their 2019 QB.

Do any of you guys know why it is that the Dolphins’ 2nd round draft pick is #48 instead of #45? (1st round #13 + 32 should be the #45th pick).

Wake, Parker and Quinn not far behind. They did pick up NE blocking TE Dwane Allen. That move doesn’t say much for how this new administration feels about recent Dolphins TE draft picks: Gesicki and Smythe. Plus they still had Derby, O’Leary and Gray. Hmm, six TEs! That says a lot about how important they feel the position is.
