Well Hello Tuesday

UCLA Fires Jim Mora

Yep. They let him go. Unsuccessful season after losing to USC. It appears even the quarterback saying he’d delay the NFL wasn’t enough to save the coach’s job. Now it appears they’re going after Chip Kelly hard. What’s the toughest job for Chip Kelly? Recruiting. UCLA has all of these tests and academic requirements that athletes still have to do to get into the school. You could be a young Tom Brady in the making and yet it’s still up in the air as to whether they can get you into the program.

Dan has a good take on it all.

Justice League Mini-Review

JUSTICE-LEAGUE-Wonder-Woman-Batman-Flash-1200x810

I don’t understand why DC has such a hard time putting this together with a decent script. I don’t know if they’re just in a hurry or what they’re doing. Steppenwolf was such a boring villain. All he had was an axe and would throw around the Justice League members. You take a look at Superman (The Richard Donner films) and you always had a worthy villain. Lex Luthor or General Zod, etc. Then it flew off the train when you started putting inferior villains into the movies. Well, this was another example of that. Wonder Woman worked as they were largely able to shoot in Europe and Patty Jenkins had complete control. All of these stories leaking in that the CEO of Warner Bros told whoever that the movie had to be two hours and hiring a new director mid-way – all of these are issues that should have never happened.

My mini- takeaway:

  • Ben Affleck did a good job portraying an older and wiser Bruce Wayne. Most of the Batman scenes were well done.
  • Gal Gadot steals the scenes largely in the movie.
  • Flash is around for comic relief and is character they could have done a better job of taking the wise cracking Flash to the screen. Best joke was perhaps Flash saying that he doesn’t understand ‘Brunch’

Golf Yesterday

Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 7.49.17 AM

One of the oddest rounds of late. But it’s definitely one of my best since recovering from my wrist injury. What’d odd? I was on the driving range warming up and I was just striping the ball. One of my best warm-ups. I get out on the course and it’s +6 on the front nine holes. I made the turn and I was thinking ,”This wasn’t how I was hitting it on the range.” So I just relaxed and tried to slow things down. Boom! Back nine – one under par.

My buddy Doug – I’m not sure what happened. He shows up with no warm-up. No practice putting. Then he gets on the course and boom explodes for a 94. Gee – I wonder why?!?!

Justice League Day

Justice League

I’m headed to the movies to see Justice League in 70mm. Highest quality negative with a minimal amount of crop applied to the film – but I always enjoy 70mm films. For camera buffs, it’s like watching medium format film.

I’m curious to see what the hidden content is at the end. It’s also going to be tough to avoid spoilers.

Titleist new AVX Ball

I had a good discussion about this yesterday. Have you heard of the new Titleist AVX ball? It’s a new release from Titleist in only three states – California, Arizona, and Florida. We also don’t know if this ball will be around in the future as Titleist has said that it’s a test ball. My conversation that I had? It seems to be a long ball for just about everyone. But what do you call it? I heard it called yesterday,”The Titleist Pro V1 AVX”. That sounds like an awfully long name. I think my buddy Pete will like them because finally, they have a top-tier premium ball that comes in yellow.

NBA’s One and Done

I hope we’re getting rid of it. It’s kind of made a mockery of college basketball. If you’re going to go to college and play hoops, then you should stick around and do so. These coaches in colleges need teams that they can count on.

 

Bring on Tuesday

Justice League

Comes out this Thursday. I’m excited for it. I was one of the few that didn’t totally hate ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman’. It might be one of my first moviepass movies.

Congratulations to Bob Madsen

Congratulations on Bob Madsen for being named Golf Teacher of the Year on Planet Earth. It turns out there are awards on the national level, the regional level, the sectional level, and who knows what else?!?! Still congratulations sir.

*Tiny Footnote to the photographer* Smiles involve teeth. Otherwise, you just look weird.

Cowboys Lost…

Looks like Steve A. Smith is quite happy about it.

iPhone X Popularity

It’s still my daily driver. The camera on the front and back are fabulous. No more home button is the future. I seriously wish the IPads had this now! Excellent video from Casey about the lines in New York City to get one.

But Perhaps the best Review…

Does come from iJustine. Well done on the review.

Also, Leo Laporte does an excellent review (ish)

Bring on Thursday

Digging the new clip that showed up on Snapchat from Justice League.
