According to Jim the world:

• If you miss this week’s news and you could be part of the problem, the LPGA Tour is losing some of its soul and Coachella Valley news that the tournament was formerly known as Dinah Shore. I will be leaving town in March next year after the 2022 tournament.

For 50 years, women’s golf events have been an integral part of Rancho Mirage’s Mission Hills Country Club from late March to early April. It has become synonymous with the coast and its statue still adorns the road to Mission Hills’ 18th green. She has been the face of a tournament celebrity since early 1972, and her contribution has made her the only honorary member of the LPGA Tour Hall of Fame. The tournament got big in 1983 and the winners’ jump to Poppy Pond became a valuable ritual. The list of winners includes Shore 12 of the 25 members inducted into the Hall of Fame. …

• All of its history will explode in the gallery for the first time since 2019 since the 51st tournament next March. LPGA’s new commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan announced earlier this week that the tournament’s naming rights would be sold to Chevron and relocated to Houston headquarters in 2023. So if you’re pissed about this step, you know which gas station to avoid. …

• Yes, it’s a business. Chevron has promised a $ 5 million wallet, and part of the package is a TV promise from NBC. Last year’s All Nippon Airways sponsored wallet was $ 3.1 million, and ANA was in the fight just to survive the aftermath of a corporate pandemic. …

• According to the LPGA announcement, the change of location is intended in part to “encourage a great deal of fan engagement, participation and enthusiasm within the community and among Chevron employees”. (On the other hand, desert events are traditionally accompanied by a “Dyna Weekend,” which is considered the largest lesbian gathering in the world. Are you about to be welcomed in Texas?) …

• However, the agenda hidden here is the date change. This is difficult to achieve in the desert, where mega-events take place on both sides of the golf tournament, the BNP Paribas Open (usually) in early March and the Coachella in April. And while the fossil fuel pals might be out-of-the-box thinkers, the good old guys from Augusta National are the real enemies here.

It was the ultimate bait-and-switch as only the finals of the 54-hole tournament were played on the famous Masters layout, but it was they who caught the counter-programmed attention at the 2019 LPGA women’s amateur tournament and top amateur Leaving competitors a choice, and in the end it was a belted LPGA. …

• Former Commissioner Mike One said in a media session in Mission Hills ahead of the 2021 tournament: When I was 7, 8 or 9 years old, I saw this tournament on TV and dreamed of being here. The point here is that we are not very familiar with the LPGA (tour) of these long standing historical works. “

• This is one less. Will the winner jump into the oil spill when the Chevron Championship moves to Houston? …

• Other news: I’m not a huge fan of Rams’bone’-colored jerseys and pants. They just look grubby, just like changing room workers have to look for stronger detergents. But it was wise for her to go through it Thursday night in Seattle, where the Seahawks wore neon green. (And what happened to the “look good, play good” theory?) …

• How many people forgot that the extra innings rule for the second baseball ended when the baseball postseason begins? …

• This week’s reveal: Convicted scammers sit behind homeplates instead of being sentenced to prison in 1998 during a game that has aired since escaping at Dodger Stadium. It’s possible he was a man who was found. 2016.

I a) released the game in question in 2016, b) Scott Kazmir’s 9-0 Dodgers defeat and Jesse Chavez’s pledge to blow. I like that. Imagine the game is what catches you after 20 years of execution. https://t.co/eM86CPeq4W

The US Marshals Service posted a photo on Tuesday. The next night, during a Dodgers Cardinals wildcard game, someone with a giant plastic head resembling the Jack in the Box and Mr. Mets cross was found in a home plate seat. .. It was an advertisement for a cryptocurrency company and it turned out that Mr. Bighead had left after a couple of innings, but it was speculated that he was either the escaped Ferron or Trevor Bauer in the game. …

And tonight Felon On the Lam / Fan Of The Game… https://t.co/AcGON7V1sh

• Finally, another sign that the world has indeed changed: the late Jerry Tarkanian said he likes transfers “because their cars have already been paid for”. a monthly vehicle allowance of $ 500 per year. Without breaking the NCAA rules.

Trade in all hail names / pictures / portraits. I hope the same goes for walk-ons.
