I’m just about to catch my flight home, but I wanted to post a couple of photos from Augusta National and the 2010 Masters… First, my Dream Foursome was featured on Augusta.com’s web site!
2nd, kissing the #1 fairway. The pilgrimage is completed.
From my iPhone:
6:09am – Im currently on interstate 20 heading for Augusta National with about 140 miles to go.
Phones are not allowed on the grounds so I wont be updating during todays practice round.
The fantasy foursome has assembled. We are in Atlanta heading to MLB opening night with the Braves / Cubs.
Happy Easter to all my friends, family and HOG readers! The title says NO GOLF for a couple of reasons.
1. Woke up this morning to four inches of snow on the ground. So no golf.
2. No golf on TV. No PGA Tour. See my previous post…
By the way, what’s with the snow? Did the Easter bunny come out of his hole and see his shadow this morning, meaning four more weeks of winter? Isn’t that how that thing works?
So I’m shopping today at Costco. I’m picking up the usual stuff I get there like a case of toilet paper which will last me 4.27 years, a dual 750 pack of coffee filters, a three pound jar of Kalamata Olives and a 2.5 pound block of feta cheese. Like I said, the usual Costco stuff. I most certainly was not picking up Kirkland organic peanut butter.
Then I see the word “Masters” out of the corner of my eye. There, right next to the office supplies section (next to 20 packs of black ink for Epson ink jet printers to be exact), is a display selling Masters tickets.
For $5K you can get tickets to two days of the action, lodging and transportation to and from the tournament from the hotel.
I thought I’d seen everything possible at Coscto, but until today I apparently hadn’t.
