5 at 10: Live from the Masters (Day 2)

Great day on Thursday. Loads of great golf here at ANGC, loads of great comments at the 5-at-10 — it was a load of awesomeness. Friday’s normally our mailbag day, and sense we’re in the home of “a tradition unlike any other,” we are not about to start changing our tradition now. Mercifully, we have a collection of Masters related questions, so we can stay on the topic du jour. (The topic of the day — “MMMMM, that sounds good, I’ll have that.”) That said, we have every intention of posting throughout today’s second round, and that means we need you. (A one-way commentary is a speech; a multi-way commentary is the 5-at-10 at its family-oriented, InterTubes, sports-based web column best).

Here we go...



From ElJefe

Is there a formula for the correlation of the oddity of your name and your golf prowess? I mean did their parents give them just awful names to toughen them up? The Masters’ field does have a “Bubba” and a “Bo” (I chose him in the pick using my “ace-cannot-lose; Bo-knows-golf picking system” ) Alas, Bo’s last name is Van Pelt so I guess he spent a lot of time fighting for his lunch money along with Retief Goosen.

ElJefe

This question made the 5-at-10 laugh. Hard. Then we scrolled through the players’ field photos — strange-looking group here, no doubt. We’re not talking early-1980s Boston Celtics funny looking, but you get the idea.

No idea about the name-game correlation. In the previous generation, there was some balance — sure, there was a Davis Love III, who was predestined as a PGA player, or an Ian Woosnam, but you also had a Fred (Couples) and a Tom (Watson).

Sweet Beatles melody, there are a lot color swirls and sideburns out here this week. Alas.

That said, regardless of their names or outfits, they must embrace the tradition of this place. That means you and your hat Ronnie-Bobby-Rickie-Mike Bieber Fowler. And Kburg, the tradition is what makes this place. The green jackets, the $6 lunch of two P.C. sandwiches and a drink, the no-running-on-the-grounds rule, all of it. And if they start bending tradition, well, that’s when they start breaking tradition.

From CelticVol

I’m pumped for the Masters this weekend. There’s nothing like watching the Masters on a Sunday afternoon. Although I am a little miffed at the Mrs. for scheduling a birthday party during this time. Why do women do this? Oh well, I’m rooting hard for the two great lefties, Phil and Bubba. To get me juiced for this years Masters, I purchased the new Tiger Woods 12: Masters Editions. As Dick Enberg would say, “OHHHHH MYYYYYY!!!” Can you imagine what it would’ve been like growing up with games like this?

C-Vol,

The 5-at-10 can fondly remember Intellivision football with number-pad play calling (run plays started with 7; pass-play codes started with 9). Then came Nintendo, and Mike Tyson’s Punchout, which for our money is the Babe Ruth of sports video games — yes, there may have been athletes/video games since Ruth/MT Punchout, but that was the first mega-name. Then Blades of Steel which begat Double Dribble which begat Tecmo Bowl which begat Madden which begat (Bill Walsh) NCAA football, and it was on.

Now they have seasons and front offices and drafts (the 5-at-10 loves the draft, even the video, virtual draft, but you know this) and recruiting in college football and even earning sponsorships in the golf games. It’s unbelievable.

Now, what’s up with the 5-at-10 folks scheduling stuff this weekend. Gang, it’s the Masters, for crying out loud. Schedule things in the a.m. or around lunch this weekend, but block out the 3-8 p.m. time slot Saturday and Sunday.

From BaseballJunkie

Why are you such a Braves homer? Why not tell us about all your favorite Braves players and Braves moments. But really this team is OK -- maybe even pretty good. But they’re not the Phillies, and if you think the Braves are, your dumb. I know everyone around here is a Braves fan, but seriously man.

Thanks for stopping by BaseballJunkie, and we’ll be glad to cover some of our favorite moments. We were blessed to get to a bunch of bad Braves games growing up — the 5-at-10’s Pop was cool like that and shared his love of baseball. The 5-at-10 has never been anything close to a Braves fan growing up — we always cheered for the Dodgers strangely (we loved the uniforms was one of the main reasons).

As for these Braves, well, we think they are well-assembled, have a balanced lineup and enough power to challenge anyone. That opinion and three bucks will get you a small Starbucks French-vanilla-cream-mocha-non-fat-latte.

As for our favorite Braves moments, here’s one family-oriented, InterTubes, sports-based web column’s view:

Best Braves’ moment historical — Winning the series in 1995

Best Braves’ moment emotional — Sid’s slide in 1992

Best Braves’ moment individual play — Nixon’s game-saving, homer-robbing catch against the Pirates and Andy Van Slyke

Best Braves’ moment pro wrestling division — Huge brawl with the Padres in late August 1984, Bob Horner with a cast on his broken wrist mixes it up with Champ Summers. It was awesome in its awesomeness.

Best Braves moment, insomnia division — The July 4 game against the Mets in 1985 that went 19 innings, survived a few rain delays and finished around 4 a.m. before the fireworks finally were shot. Poor-hitting pitcher Braves Rick Camp hit a homer in the 18th inning to push the game another inning before the Mets won 16-13.

From Big Orange Follower

What happened to the spring football updates? You’ve done like three total. You know spring practice ends next week, right? What’s up?

BOF, there’s no explanation for our shortcomings in our UT football spring reviews. But know this, we’re going to finish fast next week.

In fact, we’ll even put dates on it. Monday — offensive line

Tuesday — defensive line

Wednesday — linebackers

Thursday — secondary

Friday — it’s the mailbag, so we’ll see what the questions bring.

Then we’ll spend the following week going around the SEC in an extra special 5-at-10 series that will still be the same low, low price.

Until Monday (although we’ll be back soon with our first Masters update from Friday)...

Awesome questions in this Friday's mailbag..even Awesomer answers...with that said I would like to think that parents somehow know how to pick out the perfect name for their childs future career...take the president for instance...No Name oozes with "historical DeJa Vu" Like Barrack Obama...they had to know he was destined for Greatness...How about Lefty's shot from the cudzu yesterday...talk about awesome...nobody can screw up a tee shot and pull off a miracle save quite like Dill Pickelson....

The only instructions i received in picking a name for my daughter was to put "And now coming to the stage......." in front of it and then you would know if you have picked a safe name or not. I didnt know this before hand...wish somebody had told me...my daughter's name is Alexia....im doomed... and yes...awesomeness in its extreme awesometisity...it was Fabawesomelous. And i have a half a point! let the trash talking begin!!

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE I

Cloud cover makes for some interesting issues for those at ANGC today. The players need to make scores as soon as possible (if the course gets wet, it will play much longer and much tougher). It's so up in the air, we brough umbrellas and sunscreen into the press building today. Go figure. As for the leaderboard, early runs by Paul Casey, Fred Couples and Ricky Barnes (who has moved to 7 under and has a share of the lead) have added some new names to the mix. Y.E. Yang has started quickly and is 2 under through six holes today and 7 under for the tournament.

EC — There were some great questions today and that's a pretty good scale to grade names on. As for Dill P., dude is MacGyver. Put the ball under a bush and have him standing on a pine straw and he'll try to cut it around a tree, bounce it off a water closet and leave it within 6 feet. The only thing he can't escape is his own self-destructive tendencies — and that trash can on 18 at Winged Foot.

Oso — Missed you yesterday, worth your time to check back ‚— the comments were awesome and we referenced no joke like 1,450 movies (or maybe 15, somewhere in between). Let all the 1/2-pointers unite!

Sidenote: Just saw on the InterWebs, that a church sign in Decatur, Ga. has the following message: "We don't condone Heyward batting sixth." Amen.

April 8, 2011 at 10:52 a.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

Heyward batting sixth is like Halladay coming out of the Bullpen...yeah it may be working...but think of what could happen if we increase his PAs...and by the way 5@10..yesterday you mentioned DH friend or Foe...I cant wait for that topic...the new issue of SI has some very interesting points made about DH's..consider me "well read on this topic"...this burrito is good, but it is filling

April 8, 2011 at 10:59 a.m.

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE II

Now this is happening, broseph: Yang is at 8 under (thru 8 today), Barnes (thru 7) is at 7 with Choi (thru 4) with first-round co-leaders McIlroy (tees off a little later) and Quiro (who made bogey on No. 1 to fall to 6 under) right there.

Ssshhhhhh, be quiet, but Fred Couples (bad back and all) is making a small climb. The '92 champ is 3 under thru 7 holes today and is 4 under for the tournament. Giddy-up.

EC — What topic do we not consider you well read?

Side question: All this green has the 5-at-10 wondering: Are the Celtics cooked? They're 14-10 since the All-Star break, Rondo looks disinterested and the whole "Why did they trade Kendrick funk" is getting a bit out of control? Thoughts?

April 8, 2011 at 11:27 a.m.
bigbearzzz said...

Celtics can only play from the nursing home for so long. I mean dont they have a curfew now as it is?! Yes they are done. My money is riding on the bulls to take charge once again.

April 8, 2011 at 11:33 a.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

Doc is over thinking match-ups...they traded perkins and got Green ( BIG pun (RIP BIG PUN) very intended) so he could dictate match-ups vs other teams...hard to bet against the Celtics but I dont see them getting past the 2nd Round.... What about LBJ (not the president) having minority intrest in a Futbol Club ?? Insane...hes building a business impire...

April 8, 2011 at 11:34 a.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE III

Lots of movement on the leader board, but not a lot of distance. Yang and Choi are at 7 under with McIlroy, who tees off in a bit. Mickelson is even so far today — birdie at 2, bogey at 3 — and is 2 under for the tournament. The clouds have lifted a bit, and the sun is trying to sneak a look.

Oso — Bulls look strong, and D-Rose is flat nasty. That said, not sure how well his cohorts will handle the pressure. Someone other than Rose will have to knock down shots, and right now who's that going to be?

EC — Can't believe we have not discussed this yet, but forget LBJ and futbol. What about LBJ's momma getting picked up by the cops for slapping a valet at 4:30 in the morning for making her wait too long this week. Sweet Kosmo Kramer's Lawyer, if LeBron's momma smacks the 5-at-10 know that the damages for pain and suffering will start in the seven figures. Can't confirm it, but rumor has it after she smacked valet dude, she mumbled, "First rule of Fight Club is you never talk about Fight Club."

— 5-at-10

April 8, 2011 at 11:51 a.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

I wouldnt have put it past her...what i heard at the water cooler this morning...The Valet..yeah well hes Dan Gilbert's nephew by marriage...somethings tells me this was no accident...First and foremost...why is his Momma out at 4:30am in the morning? If my momma was out at 4:30am in the morning, it better be because she was out of milk and/or coffee or perhaps making a trip to local Hardees...4:30am is no time for Momma's to be out and about

I have a question as I enjoy a sweet tea at hooters. Why is the lighting on chris mckendry on sportscenter reminiscent of that on cybill shepherd on "Moonlighting"?

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE IV

Spent a good chunk of the last hour outside the practice facility (FYI — to say the Masters' practice facility is not unlike saying the sound-check room at the Hollywood Bowl or the youth center at the Sistine Chapel). Anyhoo, where were we?

Yes, the practice facility, and near the end of his preparation on the putting green, Tiger Woods started draining some putts. We're not saying, we're just saying.

Leaderboard check: Choi at -8 thru 10, McIlroy at -8 thru 2, Quiros at -7 thru 9, Yang and Barnes are at -6, and Couple is -5 thru 13.

EC — LBJ's momma reportedly smelled of the Al-keeeee-Hol, so apparently she was still gettin' her drink on at 4:30 in the a.m. Holla.

BIspy — Great question. Let's go to the review with our lighting expert (That's right the 5-at-10 has lighting expert. Who knew?) Clark W. Griswold, who annually covers his roof with more than 25,000 Christmas lights each season. Clark, thoughts on BIspy's question? CWG: It's pretty simple actually, what we have here is a failure to communicate the desired impressions of the lighting expression that has a desired affect. Plus, if you have a set filled with Mort and Buccigrass and the rest of those folks, why not highlight Chris? Hmmmm, mmmmm. How about a Fresca?

April 8, 2011 at 1:18 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

And the Braves-Padres donnybrook in 1984 is the best baseball fight ever.

April 8, 2011 at 1:21 p.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

any idea what the 23 flavors of Dr.Pepper are?

LBJ's mommma says- "I got my drank and my two step, my drank and my two step..its on its on its on" LBJ himself he says- " dont judge me for my momma's actions" Its getting to the point of the day where I need my Hannah Storm fix...

April 8, 2011 at 1:27 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE V

McIlroy is killing it. After 23 holes at this Masters, he has nine birdies, 14 pars. Choi is at 8 under after making birdie on the par-5 13th. Quiros just made double on 12, he's at 5 under, with Father Time Freddie Couples, who three-putted 16.

Starting to get interesting here, folks.

BIspy4 — No doubt that Braves-Padres slugfest was best, but we'd be remissed if we didn't mention Nolan Ryan pounding Robbie Ventura, too.

EC — Those 23 flavors are locked in the President's book of secrets with the truth about JFK, Area 51, the photos of what Tammy Faye Bakker looked like without makeup and all the other great unknowns.

April 8, 2011 at 2:13 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

Now, I know it’s Miami, so the clubs are probably hoppin til just before the sun comes up. It’s no Doc’s, where the elite meet and greet, but I’m sure it is quite nice. So does any baby’s momma need to be steppin out that late? But ain’t nothin’ good happenin’ after 4 a.m. Well … wait a minute … yeah, every now and then something does.

April 8, 2011 at 2:34 p.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

Perhaps when the pres. steps in to handle College Football he can tell at least 6 of those flavors...no baby mama's need to be out at 4 in the am...unless they got their hair did, their nails done and a babysitter...maybe its ok then.... Nolan Ryan beating up RObin Ventura...that alone was hall of fame worthy...even for Ventura..the fact that he took that beating and didnt retire immediately

How are those pimento Cheese's treatin ya ? I bet they are awesome in their awesomeness

April 8, 2011 at 2:53 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE VI

Couples in is in with a 68 and he's at 5 under for the tournament. Steve Stricker says Couples is "as cool as ever," and he was in 1992 form. Holy Calloway War Bird he hits a ton for a guy who's 51. Whatever, he hits it a ton for a guy who's 31.

Couples, Yang and Ricky Barnes are in the house at 5 under. Geoff Oglivy is 6 under thru 16, Choi is 8 under thru 17 and McIlroy still leads at 9 under thru eight.

Tiger is 1 over today thru 4 and even for the tournament; Mickelson is even today and still at 2 under for the event.

BIspy4 — Nothing to see here, just move along. Or as the animal outside the Monster Plantation at Six Flags over Georgia says, "This way out, this way out. Stupid humans, you never listen."

EC — On a different leaderboard, it's currently

5-at-10 3, Pimento Cheese 0 (and we're not done today folks.)

April 8, 2011 at 3:05 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

Ladies and gentlemen, the lost younger brother of Andre the Giant is in the game! Now pitching for the Yankees … Bartolo Colon (now batting … Manny Mota. … Mota)! The Expos got beat up for some of their trades — they did give up Grady Sizemore, et al, for Colon. But he did pitch well for them down the stretch in their last meaningful season in Montreal (a beautiful, beautiful city by the way. Love Montreal.) And they did swap Randy Johnson among others for Mark Langston, who always pretty good for them in the playoff drive. It’s just that neither move got them over the top. But it was no Larry Anderson for Jeff Bagwell.

April 8, 2011 at 3:15 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

Pretty impressive run by Rickie Bieber with the birdie stretch on 5-6-7. Not a lot of birdies to be had on 5 and 6. And my boy McIlroy … wow. Knew I shoulda picked him. Knew it when I put the five together. Dagnabbit. If he stays at –10, that puts the cut at even. Think some of those bobbing on the surface of par are getting nervous — like Eldrick?

April 8, 2011 at 3:22 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE VII

There will be a lot of scoreboard watching this afternoon. If the cut stays at even, well, then Bubba Watson is even, Eldrick just made birdie on No. 6 and then bogey on No. 7 so he's even, too.

Sweet holy hooked tee shots, No. 11 here today is a monster. It's 505 yards into the breeze and the pin is tucked front right. Good luck gang. Even the Lama would have trouble here (Big hitter the Lama, long). As for one-sided trades, Bagwell for Andersen (who asked the ever-wise question, "Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?" is up there as one of the great stinkers. What about Wainwright for J.D. Drew?

As for the picks, Mrs. 5-at-10 looks pretty smart snagging Rory, huh?

April 8, 2011 at 3:42 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

That Braves-Padres fight, when Bob Horner — on the DL … a rarity, I know — charged out of the clubhouse to take on Champ Summers, former Marine Pacific Fleet boxing champ. And if I recall accurately, it was Skip or Pete saying, “There’s Murph, acting in the role of peacemaker” just before the big fella grabbed a left hand full of jersey and introduce some Padre to the knuckles on his large right hand. And I’m watching J.D. Paycheck as we chat. And he just popped out to shallow left on the first pitch with runners on first and third. Drew did have maybe his best year as a pro as a Brave and if they had resigned him, maybe the trade wouldn’t look so bad. I don’t consider it worse than what the Braves gave up for and then got back in return in trading Teixeira. The press building at Augusta National — where winning the lottery has a whole different yet completely wonderful meaning. Nickel at dime, do you go back into the pool this year?

April 8, 2011 at 3:50 p.m.
wcole777 said...

Agreed that Mrs. 5 @ 10 is looking MONEY at the moment. As for Rory, he doesn't seem too unnerved by leading a pack of the world's elite. Then again, there's still a lot of golf to play. But with the cut looking to be at even surely there are a lot of folks considering getting a bit aggressive. This is one of four weekends every year that I believe leaving work 3 or 4 hours early should be considered a type of holiday. Thanks for the updates 5 @ 10! Greatly appreciated!

April 8, 2011 at 3:55 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE VII

Sweet buckets, the young guns group of Rickie Bieber, Jason (Green) Day and Rory Mac is lights out right now. Rory is the leader at 10 under, Day is 6 under today (and for the tournament), and Fowler is 4 under for the tournament.

Hey, we've had a Dustin Johnson sighting — birdie at 17 moves DJ to 3 under. Oh yeah, some guy name Eldrick had a 3-footer at 10 for birdie that was his third birdie in a row. Sshhhhhh, is there a Tiger out here?

In other news, how about Manny being Manny — that's right Manny Ramirez retired today after getting busted for steroids again. Lot of heavy-hitting names in sports journalism here talking about how Manny will have a hard time getting in the Hall — 580-plus homers or not.

April 8, 2011 at 4:45 p.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

Jeff Bagwell, now there is a hitting stance to be affraid of...spread eagle squatting like hes gonna jump to the moon...and bat speed..not gary shefield bat speed...c'mon it was impressive!!

(ear muffs) You Don't have to celebrate it Frank!

Could someone point me to the nearest Puma Outlet store...I gotta have one of those shirts!!!

April 8, 2011 at 4:47 p.m.
Eustice_Chase said...

Just add his name to the list...Bonds, Sosa, McGwire and Rose... The List of players who set some serious records, accumulated serious stats and didnt take the rules..serious

April 8, 2011 at 4:51 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

As unstoppable as Bo Jackson was in Tecmo Bowl (and Michael Carter of the 49ers was a beast too), the old Intellivision screen pass, running the quarterback to the very top of the screen and then dropping a pass to a receiver at the bottom of the screen, was nigh unstoppable.

April 8, 2011 at 4:53 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE VIII Tiger Woods is 3 under for the tournament heading to the reachable par-5 13th. Could be interesting this afternoon. Jason Day has moved to 7 under for the day and the tournament. McIlroy still at 10 under heading to the 17th green, where he has a pretty good look at birdie.

EC — If you locate a Puma outlet in the greater Chattanooga area, let the 5-at-10 know. Bagwell was a beast, and the growing list of steroid sluggers is staggering.

BIspy4 — Bo was a monster; so was LT. Underrated stud on Tecmo was Mark Bavaro, the Giants tight end, who was unstoppable on a curl. The Intellivision screen was tough; so was the double-tight end set and show the run and throw the dump pass. (Code was something like 9893 — shame what we waste memory space on, huh?)

April 8, 2011 at 5:27 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND II, UPDATE IX Tiger makes birdie at No. 14 and he's at 5 under. Wow. Rory stays at 10 under; he's the second youngest to have the 36-hole lead here. One guess at the youngest and it's now Craig Stadler. Jason Day closed a second-round 64 and is 8 under. It looks like Day and McIlroy will play together again in the final group tomorrow.

We've also had a Lee Westwood sighting — due is 5 under thru 16 today and 5 under for tournament.

April 8, 2011 at 6:05 p.m.

All I can say is VINTAGE TIGER!!! That back 9 was unbelievable! Especially 18! Wow!
