Boring? BORING? Mike & Mike, Mad Dog Radio, etc etc how could these guys even use the word? Did these sportscasters even watch the tournament, or did they tune in for the last 3 holes and expect a playoff? Bubba "coasting" on a 3 shot lead on the back, yes, that happened, but this Masters was anything but boring. He could have lost strokes anywhere but saving par on 17 for example. I know everyone missed Tiger, I did too as he is my favorite golfer, but BORING, really? That's the word we're going with? Bubba, Sunday, out of the trees on 17. No laying up. Young Spieth's intensity (ultimately failed to hold the lead), leading at one of the youngest in the field, and stuck with it even after 8 and 9, Miguel Angel Jiminez blasting out of the gate amid a cloud of cigar smoke? Freddy in the show as always? Kuchar's new found cult following? Jonas BLIXT out of the great North barreling down on golf's greatest?? Are you NOT ENTERTAINED?
People seem to think that this Masters wasn't exciting because it didn't come down to the last putt on the last hole. Oh boo hoo. Were you even watching Round 2? Did you see Bubba birdie 12, 13, 14, 15, 16? Have you ever done that, ESPN announcer guy? From -4 to -8 in 4 holes, the score that would ultimately win the tournament? I think these media people have a seriously short attention span to say that this was a boring tournament. Watching Bubba birdie 8 and 9 on Sunday while Jordan bogied the same holes sealed the deal but there was still a chance. Bubba finished strong and wow what a show.
There were plenty of lead changes and plenty of drama at the 2014 Masters. To say it was a boring show makes me sick to my stomach. ESPN guy, go pack sand. You're lousy and your job is fake. You have a fake job. You regurgitate news stories and I am boycotting ALL sports shows until tomorrow at which point I will be crawling back and tuning back in.
Now let's talk more about Bubba.
Anyone who didn't let a tiny tear stream down when his kid waddled out onto the green has absolutely no soul. Long live the game and to the winner goes the jacket. Bubba Watson, community college grad, self taught, kid coming out of a town on the FL-GA line of 1500 people, over a third of kids under the poverty line, is the 2014 Masters Champion. This is the Tin Cup you're wanting, people. This is your everyday man. This could be you or your kid. For the second time in two years, Bubba did it his way. No swing coach, no country club, just Jesus Christ, long hair, a hovercraft and a shirt buttoned all the way up. Hail to the People's champ. Until next year.
