The following article is adapted from material that will appear in the author's upcoming book Slaying the Tiger, which is now available for order; it originally ran at Tobacco Road Blues. Q: Do you think the media's making you out to be a villain? A: Yeah. For sure. —Patrick Reed Patrick Reed: Twenty-four years old, built like Babe Ruth—short, heavy, barrel-chested, with a build that makes you think "stocky" and "powerful" rather than "fat"—quick to anger even by pro golf standards, and a born winner. Those are the descriptions that come to mind when you study Reed's résumé and watch him on the course. With his win earlier this month at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, he became just the fourth player in the last two decades to win four times on the PGA Tour before his 25th birthday. The other three are Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Sergio Garcia—names that demonstrate the lofty company he keeps. With Reed, though, success is never … [Read more...] about How Patrick Reed Became Golf’s Latest Villain
I didn’t anticipate how strange I’d feel buying non-alcoholic beer. I rolled into my regular supermarket at 9:30 on Saturday morning and loaded up the register’s conveyer belt with seven six-packs of non-alcoholic beer, plus a gallon of milk (we were out). The cashier asked for my I.D., which I wasn’t expecting. Then, to his credit, he did a decent job containing his side-eye while asking whether I wanted paper or plastic. Wow, I said to myself as I watched the cashier scan pack after pack of NA beer, I look like a serial killer. But the awkwardness was worth it, readers, for I was on a mission: to objectively evaluate and rank non-alcoholic beers. My curiosity was piqued with reports that German Olympians and even marathoners use non-alcoholic beers as fuel. And it’s not just athletes:CNN Money reports Anheuser-Busch InBev says low- and non-alcoholic beers will make up 20 percent of its production volume by 2025. An increasing number of people are … [Read more...] about Which non-alcoholic beer is marginally better than just drinking water?
The question I had, as I picked up the 2016 Cadillac CTS V-Sport on a summer Saturday morning, was how a four-year-old might like it. My younger son, Dominic, was four at the time, counting down to his fifth birthday, and it was mostly for his sake that I had arranged to pick up a review car—a high-powered American luxury car—to drive on our weeklong vacation trip. I had already known the CTS V-Sport wasn’t going to be my kind of car. The cars I have always felt comfortable with are lightweight, imported, economical. My parents were not rich, and more than that, they were not spenders, and so the cars of my early childhood were a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle, in zenith blue, and a 1975 Volkswagen Rabbit, in school-bus chrome yellow. When the Beetle got totaled in a crash and when the Rabbit broke in half on a repair-shop lift from body rust, my parents replaced them with a used yellow 1974 Beetle and a new dark-red 1986 diesel Jetta, respectively. My exposure to the big … [Read more...] about The Identities We Construct Through And Around Our Consumption Of Commercial Products Are Tissue-Thin And Contingent
