If You Had To Play In A Golf Death Match, Who Would You Want As Your Partner, Jack Nicklaus or Donald Trump?


By: JohnRussell  •  16 comments  •  2 weeks ago
I've been reading an article from The New Yorker about Trump and golf. The NY'er article is based on a book by the sportswriter Rick Reilly. I am going to post the article somewhere below my thoughts on the matter. There was a time when for a few years in a row I would golf with anywhere from 3 to 7 of my friends most Sunday mornings during the summer. We would meet at a local course...

Apr 03 11:02pm @2.1.2 Actually, I would probably prefer to golf with Lee Trevino in any death match, but especially against a known fudger like Trump. Trevino did his 4 years in the USMC, married 3 times, fathered 2...

Well, we here in Chicago now have the city's first  black , female, gay mayor.  Richard J Daley's above ground tomb at Holy Sepulcher Cemetery was seen spinning in circles.  It is not a surprise that a black woman won, since both of the two finalists who survived the February primary are black women. What was a surprise is that the winner , Lori Lightfoot, got 74% of the vote to Toni...

The financial strain of paying for health care in the U.S. has been made clear by a new survey that shows that Americans borrowed an estimated $88 billion in 2018 to pay for medical attention. The survey, released Tuesday by Gallup and the nonprofit West Health, shows that around a quarter of Americans avoided seeking treatment for medical problems because of the costs, and that half of...

Intrigued, DePalma kept digging, and found a dazzling assortment of fossils, very delicate yet wonderfully preserved. He found a jumble of wood, cypress tree bundles, tree trunks coated with amber and fish, all entombed together in muddy sediment that hardened over the eons into mudstone. DePalma’s field assistant, Rudy Pascucci, was with him as he began to tease out the story the...

Jerry Hill heard about a local 12-year-old girl getting married to a 28-year-old man, he thought it was just a sick rumor. “It’s one of those, ‘You’re kidding me, that’s not happening here,’” Hill told NBC News.

In her return, Carpenter delivered a fervent lecture on the importance of...
