Who knew there was a :

In golf’s history, there were just four previous condors reported through 2018 — all of them holes-in-one on par 5s, starting in 1962 when a golfer in Hope, Ark. cut the corner on a dogleg for an ace on a 480-yard hole. Before Pon’s rare feat, the last condor was in 2007, when a 16-year-old aced a 511-yard hole in New South Wales, Australia.

The Annual : and it's wonderful.

If this last terrible year could do one good thing it would be to move the definition of the word community away from its more recent meaning – online interest group – back towards its older, more challenging meaning – the people who live near you with whom you have to learn to get along with.

It's nice that Urban Meyer isn't even trying to hide his true self anymore, just letting that freak flag fly. "Ok, boys, we'll fire the racist, but see if you can get a spouse abuser who will melt down in some outrageous way later on!"

Bucs Win Super Bowl 0x37

Has there ever been a Super Bowl defense that had more hurries and sacks on a QB?

I have to give props to Greg Bedard of for calling this result.

Tampa won't need to worry about the run and should be able to pressure with four, I don't see an issue with doubling Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

Basically, if the Chiefs are going to put up their customary 30-plus points in this game and win, Mahomes is going to have to be otherworldly. Anything the Chiefs do on offense will be because of him, and possibly some breakdowns on behalf of the Bucs. He will have to have, arguably, the greatest QB performance in Super Bowl history.

I gotta admit I find Pizzeria Regina underwhelming. I also pronounce it like it's a Canadian city.

I don't think it's her fault, but the thing to would have been to blow the whistle right away.

I don't think that tracks: if you're a woman who somehow made it to a job of covering the MLB at any level, the last thing you want to do is rock the boat. It's a huge power imbalance; as it is, she probably spent every level of progress having to prove she could be "One of the guys" and not get snippy about the slightest (read, "obvious") bit of sexual harassment. It also suggests its anyone else's problem that some guy would take the time during what should be a busy day to find a place, drop trou, take 5 or 6 different shots, edit them for beauty and then make the decision to text them to anyone. I wouldn't send a photo of my junk to a urologist, much less a distant acquaintance.
