DCrotty 22 Master's Contest: Adam Scott, Lee Westwood, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker
Stay in the limelight. It looks good on you.
And Dougie McBuckets had a brilliant career for sure.
We'll go 1) Duke (if Jabari stays); 2) UK; 3) Arizona; 4) UNC and 5) Florida and feel good about it.
LBJ got fouled but it was 50-50 at full speed and we've always preferred when referees let players decide the outcome.
So it goes. Plumlee made an aggressive play and got rewarded for it.
We like that five of the all White Shadow team, but we'd flip Cousy for Havlicek and our order would be Bird, West, Dirk, Havlicek, Stockton.
You are in. We'll have the complete list in the morning.
And MT, did you say Forster hit 397 or weighed 397?
Pick four golfers (Adam plus 3 more).
And considering the women's title game is in Nashville (pro-Pat land), Notre Dame's massive fan base and Geno's jerkness, what's the percentage of ND fans in the house tonight? Like 80-20 maybe?
MT — Sandlot was a fine flick to be sure.
9er — Funny Braves Rushmore, I-285 Perez for sure. Maybe Terry Forster, who was with the Braves when Letterman called him a fat tub of goo. Brian Asselstine. Bruce Benedict, who called a T on the 5-at-10 in high school basketball at the Cobb County Civic Center in 1988. Good times.
FE to the C — We went down to the North Georgia Championship Wrestling, the precursor to NWA.
Jomo — Geno and Pat are even right now at 8 and Pat has like 300 more wins. She's either a step ahead or dead even, but that could change tonight.
MT and JMC's questions are in.
BiB — Well-played indeed.
From Spy — My four ... Rory. Dufner. Jason Day (if he's healthy). Big time wild card - Victor Dubuisson.
From McPell — Put me down for Mickelson, Dufner, Harris English & Justin Rose.
From Dawg747 — Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Harris English, Angel Cabrera
From friend of the show StuckinKent —
Hmmm....four Masters players....hmmmm......
I'll go Adam Scott, Jason Day, Matt Kuchar and Lee Westwood.
I'm tempted to go with Phil Mickelson as my fourth. Those are the five I like. We'll see.
