Floyd explains Vision 2025

We’ve had several articles here about the happenings at the SBC Executive Committee Meeting last week. On Monday night, Ronnie Floyd presented his new plan called Vision 2025 to the Executive Committee. William published an article on the plan here at SBC Voices. But Vision 2025 was quickly overshadowed by the actions the Executive Committee took the following day. It’s one of my frustrations with the EC right now. We should be focusing on Vision 2025. Instead, it was almost forgotten just as qu...

Where to see rocket launches 2020

Rocket launches aren’t just for Florida anymore. Noting that the second-most-popular tourist attraction in Central Florida is the massive Kennedy Space Center, the rest of America — and the world – has begun developing tourism around the awe-inspiring experience of watching a rocket shoot into space. And many of them are in places worth visiting for more than just the launch. Though our American launch pads are easily the most accessible, if you were planning a trip to South America, Japan, o...

Honma Announces New Mobile Fitting Van Program

Honma has said it’s getting serious about North America. Apparently, it’s serious about getting serious. Exhibit A was Honma’s Demo Day booth at the PGA Show, most certainly outsized for the company’s relatively small North American market share.  The highlight was the new TR20 line of irons and metal woods, the first product line produced by Honma’s new North American product development team. Yep, Honma wants to grow, but experience tells us growth and comfort do not coexist. Product alone won...

U.S. Supreme Court turns away religious bias claim against Walgreens

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory to Walgreens, turning away an appeal by a fired former Florida employee of the pharmacy chain who asked not to work on Saturdays for religious reasons as a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The justices declined to review a lower court ruling in Darrell Patterson's religious discrimination lawsuit that concluded that his demand to never work on Saturday, observed as the Sabbath by Seventh-day Adventists, placed an undue hardship on Wal...

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It (Chris Gordon)

I can tell you the batting average of Dale Murphy from his 1983 NL MVP season rose 21 points from his 1982 MVP season(.281 to .302). Much to the chagrin of my poor wife I might add, I am a statistical nerd. It’s true I hated Statistics in college though. No not stats, but Statistics, Probabilities & such. I don’t care if you roll a pair of dice 2909872 times you might not ever get six on both at the same time, but I digress. This isn’t a post about my abnormal LOVE for statistics, the measurable...

How a Lakers coaching staff of strangers blended to lead the West’s top team

CHICAGO — The Lakers might not be where they are today if not for a very crucial task that helps keep them humming. It’s an area that falls under the expertise of assistant coach Mike Penberthy, who once won a title with the Shaq-and-Kobe-era Lakers. When coaching staff meetings invariably bog down with the minutiae of game planning, he’s often the one who makes the decision to shake things up. “I’ll be like, ‘You know what, I think we need some donuts today,’” he said. “I’ll grab one of the you...

Fellow NBA players think Aaron Gordon was robbed in Dunk Contest, too

Aaron Gordon got robbed. At the conclusion of the best NBA All-Star Saturday night Dunk Contest in years, Orlando's Aaron Gordon jumped over 7'5″ — without shoes — Tacko Fall, and still got a 47 score that cost him the contest to Derrick Jones Jr. “Jumping over somebody 7'5″ [note: without shoes] and dunking is no easy feat,” Gordon said, stating the obvious. What did I get, like a 47?

I flew first class on Delta from Orlando to New York and found it wasn't anywhere close to worth the extra cost
