Why the Masters creep me out
I’m one of the few red-blooded American males who didn’t watch the Masters yesterday, and I’m OK with that.
Part of the reason I didn’t watch was the home where we ate Easter dinner didn’t have television, which is OK, but I have to admit the tournament kind of creeps me out.
There’s a lot of great tradition there, the green jacket and Amen Corner to name a few.
Jack Nicklaus winning there in 1986 is still one of my favorite sports memories.
But the club’s past concern over admitting female members creeps me out.
C’mon. It’s 2012.
EASTER TEBOWING – New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow made headlines yesterday for his appearance during a Texas church’s Easter service.
Selfishly, I’m still annoyed that he led the Broncos over my Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL Playoffs, but I appreciate the fact he’s willing to share his faith. Here’s a shaky, but complete video of his interview during the outdoor service with the church pastor.
WAITING ON BASEBALL – I can’t get too excited about the baseball season in April, but I’m a history buff and have enjoyed Ken Burns Baseball documentary on Netflix.
In addition, I enjoyed the new commercial on the Chicago baseball rivalry. If you like the Cubs, White Sox, “The Office” or “Parks and Recreation,” you should enjoy this.
CHECK OUT HOCKEY THIS WEEK – I’m really looking forward to the start of the NHL Playoffs this week.
I know I’m in the minority by saying this, I know not a lot of you like hockey, but do yourself a favor and check it out.
It’s a lot better than April baseball.
