Top 5 reasons to watch the Masters

Top 5 reasons to be excited about the Masters

5.Rory McIlroy looks for redemption – The young McIlroy pulled off one of the biggest choke jobs in Masters history last year. He came into Sunday with a four-stroke lead but a triple-bogey on No. 10 started a nightmare back nine for the young Irishman. The roars from crowd reacting to Tiger’s attempt at a comeback seemed to have gotten to him as he finished with 8-over 80 final round.

McIlroy has responded nicely since then, working his way up to a No.1 world ranking. If he’s in contention during the final round, it will be interesting to see how he responds to the Augusta spotlight this time around.

4. Phil Mickelson is always dangerous – Mickelson has always been a fan favorite and can never ben counted out at the Masters. He is only the player besides Tiger that can get the crowd behind him and place the pressure on the rest of the field.

While Lefty has been streaky this season on the tour, Majors have always been where hes shined. If Mickelson is in the hunt on Sunday, particularly with Woods, things will surely be interesting.

3. The best coverage in golf – The Masters is an excellent example of how technology can be used to drastically improve sports broadcast. With its parternship with IBM, The Masters provides some of the best online and television coverage in all of sports.

Not only are all four rounds of the tournament aired on television, you can follow along all week online as well. The Masters, through its app and website, make feeds of featured groups, Amens corner, and other holes, available for free. When it comes to golf coverage, Augusta can’t be topped.

2. The rest of the field makes it interesting – While the casual golf fans love to see the big names battling for the green jacket at the end, the Masters is always more exciting when someone no one expects to win is in the hunt. Whether its one of the young up-and-coming pros or a former champion, you can usually expect a dark horse to be in the running on the final day.

1. Tiger, Tiger, Tiger — Tiger Woods has been, and will continue to be the biggest name in golf until he quits. The event is always more exciting with Tiger in the field and this year the excitement might be bigger then ever. Fresh off his first official PGA tour victory in 30 months, Woods looks to be getting back to his pre-fallout form.

A Sunday with Tiger in his tradiontal red shirt, making a run at his fifth green jacket, would make for a great event.

Kings to stay in Sacramento, good for ball!

February 27, 2012 Leave a comment

In case you haven’t heard, the Kings have an agreement  in place with the City of Sacramento to build a new $400 million arena and to keep the team in California’s capitol city for the foreseeable future. Although I don’t consider my self a Kings fan, there are a few reasons I’m happy to see the team stay in Sacramento. For one, the new arena looks like its going to be an amazing, top of the line facility. If you haven’t already seen the renderings, check out this gallery on CSNBayArea.com.

The second reason, and most important, is that I would have hated to see the city of Sacramento lose the team that has provided them with so many great memories. It’s been over the 25 years since the Kings moved to Sacramento and they have had some pretty good teams during that time. Particularly during the late 90s/early 2000s when the team was constantly in the title hunt. It brought excitement and pride to the city of Sacramento, not to mention 354 consecutive sellout games for the Kings.  Read more…

Did Alex Smith earn the right to be the 49ers’ QB of the future?

January 23, 2012 Leave a comment

First, let’s all take a moment to reflect on how truly amazing the 49ers’ 2011 season was. With their biggest moment, a 39-34 win over the Saints, putting them in the record books. San Francisco became the first playoff team in NFL postseason history to score two gaming winning TDs, one from the feet and the other the arm of Alex Smith, in the final three minutes to win.

Smith had arguably the biggest game of his career, on the biggest stage of his career, throwing for 299 yards and three touchdowns, including the game winner to Vernon Davis with nine seconds left. Pretty good numbers for a quarterback who has been labeled as nothing more then a “game manager” all season.

Even in the 49ers’ season ending lost to the Giants, Smith threw for 2 touchdowns while, more importantly, having no turnovers. While he didn’t lead the team to victory with a late comeback, he certainly didn’t cost them the game either.The 49ers’ magical 2011 run has made the fans reconsider the possibility that the number one overall pick from 2005 might not be a bust after all. The next question seems to be, did he do enough to be considered the 49ers quarterback of the future?
