    Mary is really digging in on this whole coffee meme thing.

    What was that course a few years ago with all the elevation change? It was brutal. Dudes were dropping like flies...I think Jason Day had to withdraw.

    Have some, youngsters.
  5. The public pushback and shaming clearly had a beneficial effect. You can thank our free press for that.

    Misty morning, clouds in the sky...

    That DUI a couple years ago pretty much had me convinced that it was over for Tiger. I do remember remarking that, even if Tiger made a full recovery, he’d likely find the competition from the new generation of players to be much tougher than what he faced in the 00s.
  8. 2018 Washington Nationals - Weak Cheese

    This team is frustrating.
  9. I Hate The Patriots.

    This is the year that Brady starts to fall off. The Jets will win the division. I HAVE SPOKEN!
  10. I Hate The Patriots.

    All Boston teams, really. But I'm completely over the Patriots. Belichick is a cheater. Tom Brady is luckiest gump of all time. The city is a weak-sauce, low rent, white trash NYC wannabe. I hope they go 0-16 forever. What say you?

    Koepka is a goddamn terminator.

    Very entertaining Sunday at the PGA.
  13. Goodman has received dozens[50] of awards for her work, including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting (1993, with Allan Nairn)[51] and the George Polk Award (1998, with Jeremy Scahill).[52] In 1999, she declined to accept the Overseas Press Club Award, in protest of the group's pledge not to ask questions of keynote speaker Ambassador Richard Holbrooke and because the OPC was honoring Indonesia for their improved treatment of journalists despite the fact that its forces had recently beaten and killed reporters in occupied East Timor.[53] On October 2, 2004, Goodman was presented the Islamic Community Award for Journalism by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.[54] On November 18, 2004, she was presented the Thomas Merton Award.[55] In 2006 she received the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship.[56] Goodman was a recipient of the 2008 Right Livelihood Award. The Right Livelihood Award Foundation cited her work in "developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media".[57] On March 31, 2009, Goodman was the recipient, along with Glenn Greenwald, of the first Izzy Award (named after journalist I. F. "Izzy" Stone) for "special achievement in independent media". The award is presented by Ithaca College's Park Center for Independent Media.[58] In May 2012, Goodman received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from DePauw University in recognition of her journalistic work.[59]She also received the Gandhi Peace Award from Promoting Enduring Peace, for a "significant contribution to the promotion of an enduring international peace".[60][61] On May 16, 2014, Goodman received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Purchase College, SUNY in recognition of her progressive journalism. In February 2015, Goodman (along with Laura Poitras) received the 2014 I.F. Stone Lifetime Achievement Award from the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard.[62] Many similarities to the esteemed Mr. Jones.

    I grilled some fresh Halibut last night. Freaking amazing.

    On the bright side, it’s obviously not a “wrecked knee” or anything like that. I like Guice’s chances to make a full recovery.

    I want to die.
  18. To the mattresses!

    I’ve had very good luck with the American Mattress Factory.

    Should we make a Post-Grunge Alt-core thread for you?

    The quality of “Metal” discussed in this thread had really taken a nosedive recently.
