Let Spring Begin

The Masters starts today.

I promised myself I would never watch golf. My parents (and grandparents) used to invite their friends over to watch it, and I was convinced that was the beginning of the end.

But that was before Tiger.

And Phil Mickelson's incredible run in 2004.

Enjoy, folk. Spring has arrived.

Personally, I'd rather be tied to an ironing board and needled by masochistic porcupines than watch golf.

But I hope Tiger kicks some ass for you.

Here's the problem with golf, or at least, playing it:

Every so often, almost no matter how good you are, you hit a shot just like Tiger. Now, there's no question it's just luck. And only luck. But you're hooked. It's a legitimate high. "I'm like Tiger," you say. And for a moment, you are. [I think there was a commercial that played on people's emotions like that, i.e., "I am Tiger Woods."]

In any case, here's the problem. Tiger does that 68-70 shots per round every day [not including the hundreds of practice swings].

I do it maybe once a year.
