Shhhhh! I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
Contrary to what ESPN and Jim Nantz may have led you to believe, Tiger Woods wasn’t actually leading The Masters. As he continues to par his way to something other than what he needed to do (read: shoot 65 and hope no one else in front of him broke par), it’s going to be enjoyable to watch a handful of guys out there with no major (or Major) wins to their credit trying to bring it home. Kind of like in 2004 when Els and Mickleson traded blows down the back nine. As much as I’m not a fan of Tiger Woods, I’m a huge fan of seeing some unheralded players battle for an ugly coat.
That said, I likely just jinxed the field and Woods will be taking another green jacket to the dry cleaners.
Congrats to Jerry York, who coached his third team to the NCAA hockey title. While I’m not a huge fan of anything Boston College, it was good to see Notre Dame lose, and even better to see Coach York get the win. He fought back from cancer in recent years, and will forever be remembered to me as the coach at BG during my college years, and also the architect of the 1984 National Championship team.
