Don’t Be a Hazard

No one gives you a jersey for golf, so you’re in charge of the image of your one-man team. We’ve seen that freedom get out of hand with clashing bright colors and players just trying to make a statement, so we toned it down to let our swing do the talking. But note: “Toned down” doesn’t have to mean boring. A flat cap from Tom Morris perfectly accents a simple striped polo and solid pants. Round out the look with a streamlined glove from G/FORE and some [... more]

Time Traveler

Since 1883, Alpina has manufactured high-quality Swiss sports watches with the same standards set by its founder, Gottlieb Houser. One of the first leaders in Swiss watch manufacturing, Houser revolutionized the industry with his idea that every watch should possess four distinct characteristics—water-resistant, anti-magnetic, anti-shock, and a stainless steel case—in order to maintain optimal durability for those participating in extreme activities. It’s no wonder the brand gained popularity among pilots, divers, sailors, and the military. Water-resistant up to 600 feet, the Extreme Diver 300 Lady provides the [... more]

Wreck Diving in the Florida Keys

For the adventurous soul looking to get more out of Florida than a sinful South Beach retreat or a beach getaway to the Panhandle, the Keys are full of more extreme offerings—without going too far. While the reef diving is OK, it’s the 1,000 sunken ships off the shore of more than 800 islands that steal the underwater show. Just 60 miles from Miami in the Upper Keys, USS Spiegel Grove is a retired Navy ship that was purposely sunk in 2002 and landed on her side. [... more]

A Brave New World

The designing of the new Atlanta Braves stadium, and the challenges that ensue, begins with architects from Populous, a Kansas City-based firm. In a recent interview the principal in charge of the project described the new stadium as containing 41,500 seats for a more “intimate” feel for fans. The exterior, yet to be completely figured out, will be transparent in some way. This project differs from others because Populous plans to build an adjacent development to the stadium full of shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, and offices simultaneously [... more]

Keeping Score

One of the many things I love about baseball is its rich history and layers upon layers of quirks and stories. Back in the day, people used to maintain that history by keeping score at games, but as people have moved into the digital age this simple act has become a lost art. Several years ago, I supported The Eephus League’s Baseball Scorebook Revival Project on Kickstarter, and I have bought their scorebooks every season since. Each year at baseball games I’m approached by fans asking about [... more]
