    They just opened up the vaccine line to a slew of industries this week from what I heard this morning. Hopefully we can all move on to some normalcy very soon.

    More on people who want to sound like they speak properly...using the word every for ever as in “Every loyal be”. Yes heard it on a recent sound byte by the nasally Learfield voice guy.

    You misinterpreted what he said. He wasn’t incorrectly saying “EVER loyal be”, he was correctly saying “every loyal BEE”. Bees a matriarchal society and they must be loyal to the queen. He was giving you a free entomology lesson, you should feel lucky.

    Another one....

    In golf.....the term ball striker(isn’t that the point?) I could see the significance of pointing out how well a guy strikes the ball if other players frequently swung and missed.
    In basketball.....score the basketball(isn’t that the point?)


    We don’t say a running back is a great runner of the football, do we?
    Do we say Usain Bolt is a great runner of the track?

    As someone who plays - I get the striker reference...

    A great striker of the ball - hits the ball squarely, firmly and on-line whatever his/her chosen line is - i.e. always in play from tee to green in regulation - i.e. Zach Johnson, Steve Stricker, Justin Rose

    Other cans "hit" the ball - but usually not squarely, but sometimes very far and long but in most instances not on-line with whatever his/her chosen line is - usually playing from the rough from tee to the green - i.e. Phil Mickelson, Bryson deChambeau

    All 5 mentioned are considered HOFers and 4 of the 5 are major winners - i.e. great players - but not all are great "strikers" of the ball

    When you break it down like that, I get it. Hitting it squarely seems like a good enough description.
