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.

Don’t look too much into NBA regular season games

March 19, 2011 Leave a comment

There has been a lot of talk and analyzing done during this NBA season and as we get ready for the playoffs there is only one thing we know for sure. All of this talk means nothing when it comes to the playoffs.

The media as a whole tends to over empathize to many games during the NBA regular season. The Miami heat are a prime example of this. After every Heat game there seems to be a discussion on whether  the Heat can win a championship. The Heat started the season cold, as expected with a completely brand new team, and people were quick to question if the Heat could ever win a championship. Then the Heat started winning and after beating the Lakers in LA on Christmas day, talk changed to the Heat being a championship quality team again. After a small losing streak a few weeks back, the Heat again received harsh scrutiny. Miami is just one example, the national media has been quick to question the Lakers, Celtics and Spurs ability to win a championship numerous times during the regular season.

The reality in most professional sports is that individual regular season games mean very little in the grand scheme of things, particularly in the NBA. With 82 game season, long road trips, back to back games, every team is going to struggle at some point. Especially the high profile teams because everyone else in the league is gunning for them. The playoffs are a whole different beast and what you did or didn’t do during the regular season means nothing. We wont see what teams are really made of until mid April, when the real championship contenders start to show themselves.
