I haven't read through so don't know other responses. The answer is the one you don't want to hear: start from the green and work backwards. The closer you are to the hole, the more shots you are taking.
Don't try and kill the ball, focus on being smooth.
No swing thoughts besides a picture of where you want the ball to go.
Your body and subconscious mind is better at hitting a golf ball than you realize. Don't let your conscious mind get in the way.
2handed underhand stick throwing (ie forgot about Golf and pretend it's a new sport. chipping throw it shorter. full swing throw it further) is the best simulation. Then hold onto the stick (club) and let the ball, grass, and ground just get in the way, (and hold onto club this time).
Good luck. Don't take anyone's Golf advice, including mine, too seriously. Everyone is different. Find what works for you and enjoy the journey.
|1 week 4 days ago||eat||
I have crushed workouts for an entire summer and not dropped a pound since I wasn't eating right. I've lost 26lbs in 3 months by simply being really strict about my diet and only exercising maybe once a week. Everyone is different but for me it all starts with what I eat.
full disclosure: both these examples happened in past summers. I am currently fat and out of shape.

Did you consider Hart at all? Not rankings wise. I could see him being a less shifty/crafty but more speedy Hart. Not sure on measurables.

Congrats fearless leader!!!
Let me give the best advice i can give to first time parends of a newborn:
Do NOT feel like using the nursery services to watch your new child makes you a bad parent. You have not gotten a lot of sleep the last couple days, and will not get much when you take your new child home. Get sleep in the hospital and let the nurses do what they do best. They will bring baby to mom for feedings, etc.
With our first we did not take proper advantage of this, because we didn't know. with our 2nd and 3rd.... no brainer.

Thanks Bacon. The post you're talking about had the money quote I was searching for, that I actually thought was in the UV article EmGoBlue13 posted.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks!||
This is it I believe.
I was actually remembering 2 things and melding them in my brain as 1 subconsciously.
This UV after Terry Pratchett's passing, as well as the post mentioned by Bacon which I searched for and found the main quote I was thinking of (Brian judges his writing by how many adverbs he edits out), were what I was thinking of.
Thanks to all for the help!

Thanks OMG Shirtless. That wasn't it, but I enjoyed reading it nonetheless. It's fun to go back and read "deep" posts by Brian.

A smart sexy insane woman would be dangerous. Id like sexy to be involved. I could deal with sexy sane the best, as long as she's not a complete dumbass. That has to b the right call for most situations.

Can we say it will be Alabama, Clemson, Big 12 winner, Big 10 winner?
I agree after last year they'd have a tough time keeping Big12 winner out.
Big 10 is getting one in. Either OSU, M, MSU, Iowa will be in most likely.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Brewer fan here||
We're basically going young/cheap and re-building, without actually saying that and pissing off our fanbase.
Have a new young GM and Manager (Counsell was working with the minor league system heavily from the front office before becoming manager, and he is the manager to help the new GM re-tool the farm system and team). Trying ot rebuild similar to the Astros - GM came from there.
KRod has been on/off brewers i don't know how many times in last 5 years. Kinda weird, kept letting him go then getting him cheaply. He's been very reliable and consistent i would say. Of course he always seems to put a runner or two on early and make everyone hold their breath, but he seemed to usually get it done. It will be tough not having him at the back end, but i don't know how many wins he'd have a chance at saving in the next few years for us.

|37 weeks 3 days ago||I've spent a lifetime||
I've spent a lifetime debating this and these are points people often overlook.
Yes, clearly going from the underside without reason is clinically insane. Or you just like to make life harder on yourself. But there are reasons to go under when necessary:
Cats, puppies (actually happened to me and changed my life on this matter), toddlers, spider monkeys, etc.
Also sometimes under actually works better on a new roll, and you can still achieve a clean one handed rip when the roll is new or the tube is badly mis-shapen.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Punting was the right call||
But I'm wondering to myself aloud here:
Due to the seemingly increased "wierdness" on special teams plays at end of games (is this because longsnappers, punters, and generally "less depended on" players are in spotlight of crunchtime?), i'm wondering why teams don't have a "seal the game" package for these scenarios. Jabrill in Wilcat formation and 2 best tacklers (Defensively) behind him in split back formation. They will not get the ball, they are safety valves.
The whole team would know that the objectives are:
1. Get the first down and end the game
2. If Jabrill does not catch the snap cleanly his only job is to fall on ball and insure no craziness. Let D take field and seal it. We can have a couple safetys as split backs to insure tackling on slim chance of fumble/turnover, etc.
3. If caught cleanly, and he sees he will not get first down due to crazy overload blitz, get out of pocket and throw ball out of bounds. If there is a defender within 5 feet of you just go down, don't even try throwing anywhere. Defense will win it.
4. If you find yourself in some type of shitstorm scenario not covered above, you are Jabrill Peppers, so run around and don't get tackled for 10 seconds. Make sure you are out of box so if at any point you are going to get tackled you can throw out of bounds.
IDK. Punting was the right call in this situation given everything we knew at that time. Maybe with 5 seconds left instead of 10 something like the above would be advisable.
When i saw the thread title i thought: "No way he is dumb enough or ballsy enough to comment on this with actual "I woulda done this" advice" - I was wrong.
As someone else stated already: If he shuts his mouth it wouldn't take long for him to be remembered fondly and maybe even come around the program occasionally. This is not helping.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||I think||
I think that's Lyons being held, but for the life of me I still don't understand how he didn't make some sort of play.
He's maintaing good leverage and not allowing a cutback and forcing to sidelines. The clip above in this post ends right before he should be forcing the blocker into the runner and the runner out of bounds.
My brain has erased any other memory of that play and i don't have the will to go find the whole thing and watch to see what happens a half second after above clip ends..
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Geez||
Even if you only count the 80%+ plays it's still well over 10 pts.
Though I thought this live I had since dropped it but this is so egregiously eye-opening I have to be the guy to bring it up:
When you look at the amount of $ that was on M in this game and then add in all the officiating blunders, some of which were at very important points in the game, it just begs for vegas/refs conspiracy talk.
Total speculation that is pointless and will never be proven and even if so we can't go back and change anything but, well i guess it just made me feel a tad better to get that off my chest.
Onward I suppose.

"I'd say it's more likely their defense scores than their offense."
At first I laughed at this but then after thinking about it briefly i came to the conclusion that I agree. Says alot about the quality of defense and lack of offense on both sides.
