Colin, I know your specialty is the basketball beat, but I have to say, I enjoy the hell out of the articles you write on the football side.  They are well written, with loads of content.  The attention to detail and work that goes into your writing is truly evident.  

Keep doing your thing, it is appreciated.

Old Mac is for the architecture nuts, which I am one.  It is a tribute to Charles Blair Macdonald (who's most famous design was NGLA), so I can see how it might not be some people's cup of tea.

I definitely will if given the opportunity.  Have heard great things about the Country Club of Charleston as well which is nearby.  Will be on display for the Women's Open next year.

Shinny is so good, but it's neighbor is the best course in the country in my opinion.  But to be fair, I have never played Shinny, only walked it during the open.

So many good courses, but most are private.  Charitable outings are big out here, and can get you access at least for one day at most any private club.  

Piping Rock, The Creek Club, Meadowbrook Hunt Club, Nassau Country Club, Glen Oaks are all within 20 -30 minutes of Bethpage so you may be able to search for a Monday outing going on at one that coincides with the tournament week.  

Montauk Downs is a hidden gem that is public, but it is on the east end so looking at an 1.5 hour drive from Bethpage.

Nope, sadly have never done a trip to the south for golf.  But I know a few people out here who are members at Kiawah and love to escape there in the winter.  Have heard great things.  

Comment 12 Feb 2019

NGLA, Pine Valley, North Berwick, Merion, The Old Course St Andrews, Los Angeles Country Club, Old Mac at Bandon Dunes in that order.  

Been very fortunate to know the right people to get me some good access,  Many others on the list that some have probably not heard of on Long Island, as the quality of courses here is so deep.

Not a big fan of the way the CFP committee is structured anyway.  Since the guidelines are so vague, the criteria switches from year to year, etc, etc., etc., it makes no sense to have Athletic Directors involved in the first place. Too many motives, too many people who have to abstain from discussion. 

Comment 07 Feb 2019

While I am into many different genres, been getting into some bluegrass/folk as of late.  The Dead South is a newer band out of Canada. 

Another band that has been around forever but has put out some quality stuff is The Devil Makes Three.

I understand all the votes for Belichick.  However, I think Brady is every bit as important.  Sure, he did not have a great game last night, but they don't even play without what he did against KC.  How many times has Brady put the team on his back when he has needed to?  Took them down to score in the 4th quarter in a big game?  His clutch gene is unreal.  

So, I say neither.  One without the other is nothing.

 I just don't know many or any examples of bands that came out with their best work after the age of 35-40

Johnny Cash.  Man, he just got better with age.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I was all in on DMB through Before These Crowded Streets, then pretty much lost interest from that point on.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

Outkast didnt do Hey Ya, Andre 3000 did

I see your point, but Speakerboxxx/The Love Below was still released under the Outkast name, even though it was pretty much 2 solo albums combined in one.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I think you bring up a good point of the record labels influence.  Add that to a producer, and the whole soul of a band can change.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

Shakey Graves really changed things up.  He has gone from folk, blues, country.... to pop.  Very strange.  

I really miss his one man band stuff.  His duets with Esme Patterson were so good.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I still contend everything after Stankonia was far inferior.  To each their own, which is what is great about music.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I'd put Dylan more in the sellout group.  Used to sing for a cause, not to sell a Chrysler.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I am with you on these.  Once the fame is achieved, it seems to be less about the music and more about album sales.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

Solid list.  

Like you, after putting on protective gear, would suggest Bob Dylan in the group of monster names.
