Well if Kepler can hit a four run homer with one guy on base I’ll forgive him.
True story. Attending a Little League game of mine, my mom yelled out, with 1 guy on base, "C'MON HIT A GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!!!"


Yeah, she is not a sportsball person. :lol:

What is the first thing they teach you when you catch a ball in the outfield? Cover it with your other hand!

Re: This might be a dumb question, but...

As the article mentions there is no option to tip if you visit currently. That's ...

Re: Tee to Green!

The putt DJ made to force a playoff & the putt Ramn made to win the playoff are two of the most amazing putts I’ve ever seen! The uber long one that crawled to the hole? That was sick. Just saw it on twitter. Just saw the Rahm one: [media][https://twitter.com/i/status/1300213213389369345/media]

Re: Totally Random Trivia

2) Shah ?? Correct. The Shah of Iran, for example. And going back further in time, with Chess being originally a Persian game, "checkmate" is derived from "shah mat" which is Farsi for "The King is dead" I remember reading many years ago that Shah, Tsar, and Kaiser are all derived from Caesar.

Re: Got Beer?

Back Channel now has beer slushies (shaved ice fruit beers). They are delicious. :) Talk about beer makers jumping the shark. 😂 Junkyard had them last year. BC is doing it because it's (normally) State Fair time, aka Gimmick Beer Time. Lift Bridge is serving the Mini-donut beer at their brewery. :w...
