    I'm a very boring smack-talker, mostly because I'm a stat nerd. I'm coming in to the final as a clear underdog, and even if I weren't, I know that week-by-week results are statistical noise, and so boasting in advance of how my team is going to dominate to just folly.

    [How am I doing for reverse-jinxing my team?]

    My smack talk is very boring too. I submit the above as evidence.

    Matter of fact @GB13, I'll one-up this. I'll will copy and paste your lame ass team and its owner into a word document and send it to my recycling bin. Then, I'll hover my cursor over "empty recycling bin" to give you a sense of false hope, before sending you to virtual nothingness while I clear up the hard-drive of my life, without any space for you or your team. 

    Just remember, when you hit delete, it doesn’t actually delete it. So I’ll be there, whether you can see me or not. Oh, and your team’s dumb-ass owner has their best punter warming the bench. #poorteammanagement #stillonyourharddrive #yougonnaloseBIGLY #puntersforpresident

    @daviddvm that was too close for comfort (.51pts) in circus but good matchup indeed. Lutz went nutz and almost pulled it off. Who would've thought I'd be sweating out a circus matchup??? The competitiveness is too strong!

    I know, I went into the Circus league thinking, oh, this will be a nice and relaxing, just for fun league. I was wrong. I want to win it just as much as I wanted to win the regular league. (Possibly because I lost in the regular league, but now I’m gonna put a positive spin on it, and call it competitiveness.)

    You don't know that.  Depends on what you want to do in life.  

    I didn't have to take any tests to get into college, but I loved math.  I was a math major until my sophomore year, then changed to chemistry... still used math.  Throughout my career I used math in ways I couldn't have guessed at your age.  

    Today I use it every day I play golf...  -1 for birdie, 0 for par, +1 for bogey, +2 for double.  Much easier to add up my score than all those 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 scores!  🤣

    Good luck!!

    Thank you Kenny! I appreciate the insight of someone with more extensive life experience, it helps me look at this in a different light. I don’t really have any idea what the next few years will bring, or any clear plans (yet) for my future. That should come into focus in the next few  years. I shouldn’t be looking at the things I’m learning today from a short-term perspective.

    I heard it said that the golf ball is the best teacher. So if you're hitting it straight why change. On the other hand...........

    Definitely, “on the other hand”. 🤣 This might be something to look at, my “full swing” is all over the place right now. And, I’m realizing that, my full swing has gotten exponentially worse since I weakened my grip for chip shots. Maybe I let that change into all of my clubs. I definitely need to investigate this more thoroughly.

    Agree - definitely didn't have the intensity or focus that is characteristic DJ. 

    I wonder how much of that had to do with his knee surgery. He probably didn’t have as good of a chance to practice as some of the other guys, and it probably feels a little different during his swing.

    I wouldn’t have said it if I didn’t think it was true? It’s my understanding most communication is via radio now, but I don’t have any first hand experience with same. You often see QBs holding their hands over their earholes before plays, listening to the play call coming in the offensive coordinator or head coach. And you see coaches calling in, holding their playsheet over their mouths on every play. Visual signals are the least used method of communication these days to my knowledge.

    I’m a Pats fan, you’re not, no problem. 

    I’m here to talk golf primarily.

    Yep, we clearly see this differently, and there’s nothing wrong in that. Let’s get back to golf!

    There goes two sponsors and a career (such that it was)... pretty sad when you think about it.  

    I don’t know, it didn’t affect Robert Kraft too much. 😜

    Seriously though, nothing about that story was good. You’re right, the whole thing was just sad.

    Alleged, we don't actually know yet. And you may have noticed most communications, especially offense, come in via radio communication - beginning over 25 years ago. Signals aren't at all what they used to be. And other teams get caught and fined every year, but that doesn't serve your agenda.

    First off, I don’t have any “agenda”.

    I’ll agree that this set of allegations is not been confirmed. If these allegations turn out to be false, or unsubstantiated, I’ll issue you a heartfelt apology. 

    Also, some calls come in over radio, but I think you’ll agree that signals are still used, although to a lesser degree than in the past.

    It's not the same at all, but you could read exactly what happened if you're even interested. Let's see how the investigation unfolds before you start concluding "cheating" and suggesting the Pats are the only team who has ever gone over the line trying to get an advantage. Every team does it to some extent, testing where the boundaries are, that's been established over and over again. Even with the original Spygate, other teams admitted they'd been doing the same thing at the time. But the Pats paid a high price in 2007, no one is denying that.

    The only real difference was that in 2007, it was concluded that Belichick told them to tape the sideline. So far, that hasn’t been made clear in this investigation. Otherwise, the main facts remain the same, the Patriots, or someone hired by the organization, was taping opponent’s sideline to get the signals. Am I saying the Pats are the only team to do this? Not at all, I have no doubt that other teams have done this. But the Pats continue to get caught up in incidents involving fair play, which clearly shows a disregard to the integrity of the game.
