    Spring is in the air, birds are chirping, flowers, trees and the grasses are blooming, and most importantly, it's the Final Four, Baseball's Opening Day and The Masters all in one week. If you can sneak a TV into work this week, do it. If you can play hooky from work this week, definitely do it. Enjoy this week gentlemen and don't take it for granted. It's also Wrestlemania for those interested and I really started the week off with a bang this morning by running a half marathon. Now I can't move.

    I admire the heck out of folks that run half marathons and marathons. I've said that I want to do one before I die, but the only problem is the training and the fact I hate running with a passion.

    It wasn't as bad as I expected, but my quads are still mad at me. Who is your Master's pick?

    Tiger, Phil or Rory are the immediate reactions. If Tiger can keep the putter under control he's beyond due. A part of me thinks he's still not there yet, though.

    Cats/Tiger wins could turn one of the best weeks of the year into one of the worst.

    Tiger in contention on Sunday is great drama, no matter who wins.

    volfanjo made me realize a while back that I'm a fan of the game itself before teams/players/contenders. Also, I don't hate Kentucky basketball with the passion most on here do and while I cheer against Tiger, this is always the best week of the year regardless of the outcomes. Plus my A's already have a win under their belt. We might get 50 more this season.

    This is a very good week, but it isn't the best week. The best week comes in early October, when summer is changing into fall, the leaves are changing, the days are warm and the nights are cool; when hunting seasons take us to the woods, football is in full swing, and Alabama hasn't beaten us yet this year.

    It will be a lot better now that I can live stream at work without getting calls from IT.

    It is a beautiful week. No joke, I'm going going to family lunch on Sunday so I can come home after church and watch the last round.

    I've been picking Adam Scott for years, so since I'm leaning away from him this year, he'll probably do it. In the end I see Phil, Rory and Bubba (yes Bubba) battling it out as they hit the back nine on Sunday. Can't bet against Phil in that situation.

    Dustin Johnson out of the Masters due to a bad back.

    Also if we're throwing out a dark horse, put me down for Jason Day.

    I like Labor Day weekend, but I wouldn't call the weather nice.

    In my neck of the woods, it is usually 94% humidity with a temperature of roughly 147 degrees.
