Even included Biaz stealing home…..as shown below

What a game. Maybe not so much if you’re a Pirates fan.

Paige Spiranac Dumps Callaway

Not entirely sure how I feel about this. Golf Equipment sponsorship for someone that doesn’t compete in professional tournaments. I mean…I know why they do it…they feel she can move the needle and draw attention to their products. It just feels to me like they’re paying for a model.

Golf Game

My wrist annoyance is still lingering in my game. So it’s time to do the last option that I was hoping I wouldn’t have to do. Rest. I was hoping I could play thru it and it would pass. Just not happening. So time to shut things down and enjoy the other things I enjoy doing.

Hurricane Harvey

It’s terrible and I hope Texas recovers. Words cannot express what they’re going thru.

Happy Sunday Everyone

My wife and I decided to go to Alpine beer and hang out in their lovely beer garden and watch the fight on my mobile phone. My take – I wish they had it let it go on further and at least end it with him being knocked to the floor or having to take a knee. $100 price tag for someone at home and much more expensive for bars – I wonder if they feel they got their money’s worth.

Cubs vs Phillies

SNL

I found it quite funny. Alec Baldwin definitely has the Trump down.

Golf with the Boys

Bad ball-striking. My wrist still isn’t 100%. But a fun time none the less. The fifth hole I’m walking down the fairway and I bring up the Sheriff Joe pardon and he starts giving me the ,”But Obama and Eric Holder….” Literally shaking my head. Republicans can’t claim to be the party of responsibility and accountability if we don’t hold true to those values.

Both Republican Senators from Arizona seem to both not be in favor of this pardon. Even the WSJ is reporting that Paul Ryan’s spokesman condemned it.

“The speaker does not agree with the decision. Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.”

 

It’s Thursday. Enjoy

Billy Payne Steps Down

He was big for Augusta National. A Chairman that really brought Augusta into the 2000’s. The Drive, Chip, and Putt – new Media room – honorary starters – and countless other initiatives were all his. I’m sad to see him step down but glad to see that they looked for another chairman with his credentials.

Lindsey Von – Tiger Woods – Others have Nude Photos Leaked

142nd Open Championship - Previews

If you take these photos and you put them on your phone, there is a chance that you’re not doing enough to secure them. Bingo! They can be hacked. Also – nearly 7 in 10 people that I talk with don’t have the latest software on their phones and computers. This gives hackers a gateway into your life.

I love tennis and green is my favorite color…. Also I think I ate too much for lunch 😜🙈

Apple Event

Steve_Jobs_20071

Everyone is waiting for the next IPhone and the question is now – when will it be announced? Then the question is ‘when will it be available?’ Lots of rumor sites suggest supply for this IPhone will be tougher and that we’ll see three variations.

IPhone 7s

IPhone 7s Plus

IPhone Pro (IPhone 8)

We’re starting to get hints as some of the cell phone carriers have been told when to start putting up promotional material and advertising. 9to5mac is reporting that we’re looking for a September 12th date.

One of my Favorite Movie Scenes

Bring on Wednesday

Anyone catch any of Donald Trump’s rally last evening? *sigh* where to start?!? Let’s just say the video above does most of the work for me. It’s like I was saying last week that he missed his moment to come down hard on White Supremacists and instead tried to play something to his base with “all sides.”

Personally. I thought it showed an extreme amount of low class when you’re attacking a veteran and a man dealing with a brain tumor – John McCain. When did that become acceptable?

Moving on….

Golf with the Boys

Showed up with my 85% wrist that is annoying me to no end. No pain but it’s definitely an annoyance.  I ridiculously suggested that we play teams where we’d rotate every six holes. The main problem is there are so many pickups and then we actually spend time talking about conceding a one-foot putt. I’m not even sure how in good conscience that you’d post from a day where you have so many pickups.

Also – a twelve-foot putt you just pick up and say ,”Is this good for six?” Answer should have been – no you pickup and it’s good for seven. Do you feel that you’re ‘most likely’ draining twelve-foot putts? If you’re being honest with yourself the answer is ‘no’. Secondly – you’re only hurting yourself for a score for today. It’s not a true reflection of what your golfing potential come tournament day. Don’t you want that additional stroke on your handicap if it’s a stroke that you legitimately take?

Why do I use that word ‘most likely’ – Section 4 of the USGA Golf Rules

Michael Rapaport on Colbert

It surely does make me laugh.

Today’s Agenda

I’m moving the boy into the SDSU dorms. One less kid in the house and one more to go. My wife and I are ready to have the house to ourselves again.

It seems like just yesterday he was fourteen and posing for my silly photography.

Eclipse Time. Ben Affleck Walks SDCC. Colin and Football

Eclipse Happy

The United States has gone eclipse happy. This is how our “leader” spent the time.

How did I?

First Something fun…

San Diego Comic-Con is just huge. If you’re a celebrity, it’s kind of become the thing to try and walk around the convention floor without getting mobbed. Many of them dress up in small costumes to try and walk around the convention floor without being noticed.

ben-affleck-comic-con

Ben Affleck tried just that in a Sesame Street costume.

Kaepernick and Football

Sure he does have a first amendment right of freedom of speech. Nobody is denying that. You may even appreciate what he’s doing it for. But you have to also understand that the owners have a right to not hire you because of what is said. Colin has become a distraction to the team and owners want to field the best team possible. If you’re an exceptional football player (Rodgers – Brady) I don’t think the owners would care and your football performance is enough to overshadow the other attention that you’d draw. Problem with Colin, his on-field performance hasn’t been great and he has difficulty throwing the 15-20 yard completed football pass. He requires an offense geared entirely around his strengths and weaknesses which even makes it difficult for him to even be a backup quarterback.

He needs to take a play out of Michael Vick’s playbook. Take a contract for cheap and show an owner that he can be a welcomed addition to the team. Then your following contract will be worth what you’re wanting.

 

Solheim Cup and some Politics of Note

2017-solheim-generic_2000x1125

It’s Solheim Cup time. This is the ladies version of the Ryder Cup for those that read this and don’t know.

We’re off to a good start…

But that amazing drive doesn’t matter if you can’t make the putt…..

Onto some Politics

Krauthammer makes a lot of valid points here. This should be over with already. The President and his party – the party of Lincoln – should know that he needs the moral compass to just say,”This is wrong and this is not what we stand for.” His agenda and what the American public need is your mission. Jobs and economic growth. That’s your mission, Mr. President.

Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, and longtime Trump supporter had some harsh words for him yesterday.

Also, Fox News and 21st Century Fox’s CEO James Murdock had these words for the President which seems to be what should be being said by everyone…

“I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”
