Masters ramblings

By now the tournament is in full force and we'll spend much of the morning following Steven Fox, so play nice.

On Fox, we spent some time with he and his family last night before he headed to the famed Crow's Nest, and the kid was as calm as an October lake morning. What an adventure huh?

He's playing with Bubba and Ian Poulter today and tomorrow. Cool stuff.

Braves magic

The legend of Oso Blanco only grows. Evan Gattis, the Braves catcher and cleanup hitter who was out of baseball for four years, is hitting .391 and hit his third homer of the season in last night's 8-0 drubbing of the Marlins.

Amazing indeed.

The artist formerly known as Jason Heyward is hitting a less than stellar .071.

Go figure huh?

This and that

• Loved a few of the suggestions for the name of the two-week radio adventure TFP football ace David Paschall and the goofballTFP sports editor will try starting Monday on ESPN 105.1 here in town.

• Kobe scored 47 as the Lakers stayed in the playoff hunt. If LA makes it in -- it holds a scant edge with a few games left -- the Lakers would be the most dangerous 8 seed of all-time.

• As our ace columnist Mark Wiedmer shared this morningg, Shaq was in Chattanooga Wednesday. Shaq is a cool cucumber you know?

• NFL draft names moving and shaking -- we love the draft; you know this. There's no way we spend a first-rounder on any QB on this board. Also, as all-around ace David Paschall shared, Mel Kiper Jr has Da'Rick Rogers in Round 4. If David Ricky Rogers is still on the board going into the Saturday of the draft, we'd move pieces to have that first pick. Kid can play.

• side note: The 'g' key on our keyboard is sticking so if you see a randon 'g' well now you know.

• Want to know a side story about the glorious, high-dollar newspaper travel? Here's what happened this morning at the America's Best Inn parking log -- Uch is outside smoking, and a Richmond County sheriff pulls through the parking lot and says, "If you see a black male in a yellowT-shirt call 911." Ocuh-standing

Today's question

Don't forget Friday's mailbag. And yes we know that is not a question.

We thought about asking something poetic or magical about Augusta, but that's not our style.

Try this one: What's the Rushmore of Caddyshack quotes? Yep, give us your fav four quotes from the iconic golf movie.

about Jay Greeson...

Jay was named the Sports Editor of the Times Free Press in 2003 and started with the newspaper in May 2002 as the Deputy Sports Editor. He was born and raised in Smyrna, Ga., and graduated from Auburn University before starting his newspaper career in 1997 with the Newnan (Ga.) Times Herald. Stops in Clayton and Henry counties in Georgia and two years as the Sports Editor of the Marietta (Ga.) Daily Journal preceded Jay’s ...

Caddyshack Rushmore - "Be the ball" "Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga" "Oh, this your wife, huh? A lovely lady. Hey baby, you must've been something before electricity" "Its in the hole!"

"So I got that going for me, which is nice."

"Your uncle molests collies."

"The crowd has gone deadly silent, Cinderella story, outta nowhere, a former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a miracle....It's in the hole, It's in the hole."

"You'll get nothing and like it!"

How do the azaleas look? And Laird's batting .400.

I like that Shaq's mom slapped him for bragging about his cars. And is that really Mrs. Barkley holding up Sir Chuck's XXXL tighty whiteys in the ad?

Mailbag question: Who's on your Rushmore of retired athletes as pitchmen on TV?

Boy, this Lynn guy sure must be mad at all the 5 at 10'ers not picking him, because he's taking it out upon the Augusta National course.

Hey, baby, I bet you were something before electricity.

Now I know why tigers eat their young.

Thank you very little.

You look like you walked off a Scotch ad.

Todd —

Can you make a bullshot? Can you make a shoe smell?

McPell —

We sent boys younger to than you to the gas chamber. Didn't want to do it. Fel we owed it to them.

Spy —

Do you take drugs, Danny? Everyday. Then what's the problem?

HC —

Wang, it's a parking lot, enough with the pictures.

We just bought land at the Great Wall... On the good side.

We could do this all day, but we headed back to the course shortly.

B-B-B-B-Buy Bushwood?

Great name by the way.

Saw this tweet and figured it might be of use:

With a steal of third and a stand-up triple, Miggy Cabrera is an infield single away from hitting for the fat-guy cycle

A hat like that oughta come with a free bowl of soup. But it looks good on you.

Thank you Ted Potter Jr. for continuing the curse of the par-3 champion. Nice 76 you're throwing up there on the scoreboard.

After playing the Cubs and Marlins, are the Braves finally through with the exhibition season? The Braves would get more resistance from the French army than they would the Cubs and Marlins pitching staffs.
