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.

I suppose if you'd told me early in the season that Murder Kornet and The Hausitzer would play > 10 minutes in the NBA Finals for the Celtics, I would have taken that deal just to see what the hell happened.

The Celtics seem insistent on ending their season like it started. That's frustrating as hell. That said, obviously most of the problem can be credited to the Warriors.

I feel like that was a pretty good day of Euros. 2 games, 14 goals, a penalty shootout (much as I hate 'em for making heroes and villains out of individuals).

Between the last two days, I am starting to think people with the initials KD (or Kd, I suppose) are preternaturally good at sports.

I got so annoyed with Derek Rae's pronunciation of "Bruno Fernandes" (it doesn't jibe with my decades-old New England understanding of Portuguese) that I discovered this IPA pronunciation tool and will now waste the rest of these Euros taking the spellings from players' Wikipedia entries to judge the commentators' accuracy.

Will a 'Super League' blow up global soccer? Here's what we know after bombshell announcement

Well that folded faster than Superman on laundry day. And it meant the end of Ed Woodward. If it gets rid of the Glazers and Fenway Sports, all the better.
