So I’ll try to make a long story short...I’m a diehard Broncos fan, and for Christmas my wife got me a personalized jersey with the number 18, and told me it was to signify our January 8th anniversary.  THIS WAS THE CHRISTMAS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE OUR WEDDING. (Before  they signed Peyton Manning.) In giving me the gift she told me that now I had a jersey I could always wear instead of having the players jerseys I had who retired or got traded. (Bailey, Tebow, Cutler, etc.) She then held up her own 18 Broncos jersey and said “see, I have one too.”

What did my dumbass say?  “We’re not married yet, you could still get traded.”

Wasn’t born with a great brain-to-mouth filter.

That's great

I have wine on hand but not the other. Part of my problem is I don't have my dogs at my house can't take them with and sleeping with an empty bed feels odd

I accompanied SWMBO to Walmart the other day and while I was waiting & waiting & waiting took a look in Sporting Goods. In the Golf Section there were hardly any boxes only a few refinished or Nitro balls. I was surprised and had no idea why.
Still looking around and waiting looked at guns/ammo stuff and behind the counter and roped off section where the golf balls! Really!! What is going on, Ole Farts stealing balls!
Curious (and still waiting) asked a clerk why and he told me that people are taking out a sleeve from box or switching the 4 sleeves of high end balls for cheaper ones.

You have to be on high alert when shopping at WallyWorld.  A friend of mine bought a 5 qt jug of oil, got home to do his oil change and discovered it was used oil!  Somebody got creative to get a free oil change.  I bought a jar of peanuts to keep in the truck for a job snack.  Opened it up the first time and found the foil seal had been opened already and a handful or two missing.  I couldn't bring myself to eat any and tossed the whole jar.  I guess somebody got hungry shopping for hours in their PJ's and needed a snack.

WOW, never understood what would bring folks to do that.
I do remember a while back at Publix a couple walking around eating a bag of grapes while shopping.

That happens a lot around here, I have seem many times where the boxes of high end balls are full of cheaper golf balls, I have gone to the point where I do not buy any golf balls at Walmart, without checking each sleeve to ensure that the balls I am getting are the right ones.

I posted earlier in the "How'd You Play" but had issues with inserting pictures from an Iphone and them showing up upside down. Downloaded the MGS app and went back an uploaded the pictures from my phone without issue.

Happens all the time at Walmart. The other big item to switch is shoes. Needed some cheap shoes and half the boxes I opened had old used shoes in them.

We have a large Walmart in town here and it it a golfing community but never had a large selection of golf balls or other golf stuff except for refurbished balls. Those refurbished prices are almost as much as buying new Srixon or Maxfli.

Guess that's why they don't carry golf shoes at our store. Our golf selection is limited to refurbished balls, one type of tee, a few righty gloves and that's it.

I've seen that too.

Unfortunately I knew someone a long time ago that would pull that crap, he would go to shoe stores and swap his old old shoes for new ones leaving the old ones on the box of the new ones.

Unfortunately for Walmart, the loses of those items, are acceptable as having a proper loss prevention set up probably costs a lot more for them.

TSi tester thread is closed, looks like testers could/should be announced today.

I didn't apply but I've paid attention to the thread...I know I've said it before but I can't believe how many responses are first time posters, incomplete or wrong responses, etc.  One guy said he wants to test the TSi4?!

Honestly, there was a time that I posted only to the testing opportunities.  Looking back now, that's pretty damn embarrassing to admit.

Having to distill all those responses down to just the legitimate candidates, and then picking from among them, has to be painful.

all those big box stores have a “shrink” value built in to the budget to account for shoplifting, damaged items, etc.
