You don’t even have to be rich (I’m not, and I’m a tight ass) or a true golf fan (I watch maybe two tournaments a year). I won a single ticket last year to the first round, so I had a dilemma: go see an actual round of the Masters (including Tiger’s return to Augusta), sell that one ticket to get 12 mezzanine tickets…
Ehhhh, I mean, the fact that they’re basically scalping very affordable tickets to an event that likely has VERY high overhead for travel/lodging, they’re classing out an entire group of people who could probably swing it if they won the lottery. The 200% markup probably moves a full weekend in Augusta from a $4-$5k…
An answer to that Daily Double: Annapolis is home to the annual United States Sailboat Show.
Putting aside the jokes (and there are so many) - if something is illegally obtained, it definitely should not become public record. I am a huge proponent of open records laws, but if the police illegally obtain stuff, they shouldn’t be able to make it public as retribution for losing in court.
“Yet you participate in society, how curious.” the Deadspin article.
If the author can stand to be such a judge on character, why be a sports journalist? An industry steeped in chauvinism, sexism, harassment and hypocrisy. Are you fixing any of the many problems with articles, litigation or economic actions, blogs, TED Talks, or personal appearances? If so, how have they challenged or…
I’ve also never heard Beilien denounce the Holocaust. Have fun in the NBA, Coach Hitler!

You’re also missing “no swag” which seems like just a regular whistle.
Long time Giants fan. Is it just me, or do Gettleman’s (and the Giants generally) justifications for doing things recently (like trading OBJ, picking Jones over Haskins) come off as racially coded? “Negative culture.” “Mature.” “Fiber.” Hmmmmmmmmmm. Like they get rid of Beckham for complaining that they lose too much…
The entire strength and conditioning staff needs to go. I think we’ve passed the point of “bad luck” and entered into the realm of “definite trend of some kind”.
Great article that captures everything about this win that made it so special, particularly to those of us old enough to remember Prime Tiger. Man, what a day!
Yes, unlike the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAA, and Pro Tennis circuits, which are all proletarian exercises in egalitarianism, appealing first and foremost to the poor person in all of us sitting in the Poverty Suites at our publicly funded stadiums and arenas.
I do not want to see Robert Kraft given a blowjob, but I do want to live in a world where the video of Robert Kraft getting a blowjob is widely available.
Here is the cash grab example I always use. The cost to park during the last season at Shea Stadium was $10 per car. The cost the next season, the first at Citi Field, was $20 per car, now up to $25. A 100% increase to park in the same fucking lot.
I can’t be the only one relieved not to find myself in there.
Vanech’s lawsuit is seeking $50 million in losses.
Given how the AAF is getting on, if they win their suit they’ll get to claim a crippling $0 judgement against them.
