Each week MyHOFS gathers some of the finest minds in sports and they shoot from the hip. Pull up a chair and join the conversation.
. First he pulls off one of the best shots
under pressure in the history of the PGA Tour and then he follows that up by behaving like a real person. His genuine raw emotion
after winning is just what the "Gentlemen's Game" needs after years of Tiger Woods' arrogance and disrespect
. This coincides with opening day nationwide. In a word, awesome.
Masters TV announcers
. I won't give them the satisfaction of mentioning their names. If I hear one more "oh what a mistake," that rolls eight feet from the cup I'm going to throw a mini helmet through my flat screen.
. Someone can have my seat, I'm officially off the bandwagon. His continual attacks on Gunner Kiel
are pathetic. You sir don't have "the chest."
Gambling Moment Of The Week
A quick congratulations to a friend of MyHOFS, Kyle Emmich, on his March Madness payday...Go Cats. As for the gambling side of things the Chicago Bulls take the cake for their meltdown
on Sunday against the Knicks. Up 91-81 at MSG with 3:30 remaining in the game the Bulls failed to scored a single point down the stretch allowing the Knicks to send the game into overtime with things knotted at 91. During that stretch they missed four shots from the field, four from the line and turned the ball over twice. They would also squander a four point lead in OT, falling 100-99.
If there is anything we learned from this week in sports it is that everyone loves Bubba. The 76th Masters champion was crowned late Sunday night off of what will forever be known as the hook heard-round-the-world. But it was before Bubba Watson’s impossible shot on his second playoff hole from deep in the woods
that placed him on the green and into Augusta lore. His lead up to the title was one of populous vote. The Georgia boy with the “everyman” style of golf, captivated fans this weekend. His crowds were the loudest and you could sense that all of the Peach State wanted him to win. And rightfully so…He’s sporadic, emotional, flamboyant, and he’s everything that golf needs right now. The 33-year-old has never taken a golf lesson nor watched a single video of his swing, but now he’s part of golf’s elite. Tiger made golf exciting for the masses, but now that his mellow-drama is filling up ESPN’s headlines, why not let the common-man golfer take the pumped-up ego’s place? Move over Mr. Gump and Mr. Clinton, there’s a new Bubba in town, and he’s got more than shrimp and southern swag to him, he’s got a Green Jacket
. Allow me to introduce to you the new face to golf: Bubba.
NBA and NHL playoffs
Comparing the playoffs of the two leagues is like comparing the Battle of the Bulge to a boy scout jamboree. First off, the early rounds of the NHL playoffs are really dog fights, teams are not that far apart in terms of points
for the season or overall talent. The NBA on the other hand has at least five teams that should not be in the playoffs at all, not because of record but due to their lack of talent. Namely the Sixers, Knicks, Nuggets, Rockets, Suns and possible Milwaukee. Add to that the visceral dislike of teams in the NHL towards each other compared to the NBA. This year's Stanley Cup playoffs includes potential match-ups that go well beyond rivalries
. Famous rivalries such as Yanks-Sox, Ohio State-Michigan, LSU-Alabama are walks in the park compared to these. Add to the fire the potential of seven game series and we could be in for a bloody April
This is what happens when, for years, you allow 'close enough' to count. Eventually, close enough is actually very far away.
