Man, I love this tournament. This is possibly my favorite weekend of the year.

I'd like to see someone like Sergio break through. I think Tiger will be there, but I'd be surprised if he won.

Any other fans?

Random musings from an Augustan: I appreciate the tourism dollars. I saw a Bentley today with the Quebec license plate 1ST CDN. Ahead of me in the grocery store was an Australian family stocking up on bottled water. I would like to eat out soon, but I know better since the waits will be unbelievable, and when you finally get seated, you're handed a menu with prices 1.5 to 2x what you normally pay.

But I do love the tournament on TV. Truly "a tradition like no other."

I know that place is apparently full of hugely snobbish people, but I have to say if I could pick five courses to play before I die, Augusta would be one, really without a second thought. I've played some pretty nice tracks (Doral Blue, Torrey Pines and PGA West Stadium off the top of my head) but I'm sure they wouldn't even hold a candle.

The Masters has always been my favorite major, it should really be something with the return of Tiger.

Sounds like a typical Florida winter.

I am geared up for it as well. This will be the first Masters that I get to watch on a HDTV in my house. I know, I know. I am late to the HDTV game, but all of my discretionary funds had been going into my audio system for years.

And now you're looking forward to watching something with whispers and hushed reactions? \:\)

I really wish I wasn't so tied up with so many things at the moment. I really, really want to just sit down and watch the Masters for all four days....

Then you shouldn't have taught Joyce all of those Navy knots ...
