Above, two famous holes on a famous course where a famous tournament is held every year. #12 (above) and #13 (top photo) at Augusta, GA. My favorite tournament. I don't play but I enjoy watching the tour, especially the Majors, and my fave, the Masters. I like to stream in HD and take a few caps. This was from 2013, as you can see a little rain. Fascinating course, with those hilly, lightning-fast greens. I love golf courses, so beautiful.

So why are all the British courses, especially the Scottish ones, so ugly?

I'm not a golfer but I sure am a Sands Hills fan and wanderer.  Any golfers here want an interesting place to play?  Go here and enjoy the solitude and quiet.


@RoverRocks

Thanks for a very enjoyable clip of golf. I walk and carry my clubs when allowed and
would love to play this course.

Again, thank you.

Anyone remember the Cheers episode where they get Kevin McHale obsessing about counting the number of bolts on the parquet floor? I've been a Celtics fan since the last years of the Russell era. The greatest team in the history of pro sports (8 consecutive titles) and the greatest player in NBA history (Bill Russell, 11 championships in 13 years. 13 out of 15 if you count college)

In 5 out 0f 8 first-round NBA playoff series that began this weekend, the road team won the first game. First time there have been that many.

You certainly have the statistics to back it up for basketball. Not professional, but in my book, almost impressive is John Wooten's UCLA Bruins 7 consecutive NCAA Championships with 10 in 12 years.

Yes,  Russell is the greatest player based on championships but I still say Kareem Jabbar is the best all around player the game has ever seen,  followed by the two MJs (Jordan and Magic).

That was a favorite of mine at the time. I miss that show.

The Pistons actually lost to the Lakers in '88 because of Isiah Thomas' injured ankle in Game 6.

 

Wasn't it the next year where the Lakers lost both Magic and Scott, their backcourt by game 5 or so?

 

Injuries clearly impacted both teams in their contest.   For fans of both teams it would of been great if the two teams faced each other without injuries to key players like the Lakers and Celtics did.

Yes, I saw it and it was well done.    My hate for that team is what really made me a basketball fan again.  

 

The Lakers would have beat those bad boys if it wasn't for injury (ok,  that is a homer comment but I just had to say it!).

Did any of you see the ESPN 30-30 special on the Detroit PIstons' "Bad Boys" teams of the late '80s-early '90s? Very well-done. Don't miss it when it is re-run.

"The Splendid Splinter" always reminded me of Robert Ryan, Jake.

 

(...though I'm pretty sure Ryan died way before all this here cryogenics stuff came about!)   ;)

Exactly. I fact, I think, I've equated Ryan and Williams on these boards.

Well they are sitting down and Grant is leaning back while Yogi is sitting right at the edge.  That would make Yogi look taller than he was.    Looks like a real picture taken when the two actors were making A Touch of Mink in 1961 \ 62.

Bingo.
