    • There's no reason not to be a Phil Phan.  A single boneheaded play in the passion of the moment does not negate a lifetime of good work.  Our heroes aren't perfect.  +++   It took me years to gain a more mature perspective on how pro sports are officiated.  I am pretty much a rule book thumper, "the rules are the rules."  We've all seen Michael Jordan take three steps and dunk the ball.  "There's no such thing as a walk in the NBA."    I never understood NBA reffing.   For the playoffs a lot of the NBA TV broadcasts these days have former pro refs offer commentary.  They admit the superstars get preferential treatment when it comes to walking, fouling or being fouled.  People fill the the seats and tune in to watch superstars play, not to watch referees ref.    Have you ever seen a Cav's broadcast?  LeBron argues CONSTANTLY the entire game complaining to the refs.  You know how they get him to shut up?  They T-up the coach who's usually standing there on the side line with his arms crossed, saying nothing!    This is pro sports, not little league where children learn to play by the rules.  This is Big Time entertainment where millions of dollars in revenue for the sport depend on keeping the superstars on the court, or in the case of the popular Phil Mickelson, on the course.   What changed my understanding of how pro officiating was practiced was one of the aforementioned NBA refs who said the rule book was more of a guideline, and it is the REF ON THE COURT who takes these rules and INTERPRETS how the rule is applied.  In other words, the ref is the rule book.  It's only walking if the ref says it is.   Pro baseball is the same way, although with replay challenges that might be changing in terms of judgement calls.  Remember the phantom double play where the double play was started by a player not coming close to touching second base before throwing to first?  Gone.  But for years the MLB ump WAS the rule book because of his interpretation and judgement.   Golf is pro sport entertainment worth millions.  Little league umps need not apply.  
    • This is Great News! I've started/participated in numerous threads promoting this idea way back in the Dark Ages. Heck, I flew to Indianapolis to audition the LaScalas when I was considering them for Home Theater.  
    • For surround duties, I don't think timbre matching is quite as important. Don't get me wrong, you'd be better off matching when possible, but surrounds generally handle effects. That being said, hanging floorstanding speakers sounds like a pain, and you may honestly be better off going with the R-14S, since they're designed to be surrounds.
    • Standard Day Temperature
      (2 x Altitude in Thousands) - 15 = If altitude is greater than 7,500 feet the result is a negative   (2 x 40) - 15 = 65 - 65 degrees C   Now next time your are flying along and the flt deck welcomes you to cruising along at 33,000 today you can turn and announce that it is currently minus 51 degrees C outside

    • No.  The USGA has the obvious video that showed the ball still rolling.  He would not have been DQ on the spot, but after his round, which is what I believe should have happened.  I was a big fan of Phil before this.
