Even field Negroes like to play.

He caught and passed the Tiger.


Oh well I guess Tiger is human after all. Homey was grinding all day yesterday at the Master's, and honestly, I thought he was finished before he even started for the back nine. But then there was that eagle, and I, like everyone else in America was thinking; OK here it comes.

But that Zach Johnson had some serious ice in his veins. That chip he made from the fringe of the sand on 18 was clutch. Home boy put the little white ball within a strong wind of the hole.

Game match set! And you have a first time winner of the Masters being a kid who had only won one previous PGA tournament. And what was the guy ranked, like 56th in the world? Hey, it just goes to show you, on any given Sunday. And it really makes you appreciate just how good Tiger is.

And let me say this for the record. All the people who keep trying to compare "lefty" to Tiger, need to quit right now. The man has some skills, but he needs to see the Wizard for a heart. His defense of his green jacket was a disgrace yesterday, and he ought to be ashamed of himself.

Before I go, the Phils lost today again to the Mets. I know it's early, but would it be too much to ask them to stay in the race until at least May. What are they 1-6 now? Ryan, again, I know it's early, but if you don't start producing soon, these Philly fans will turn on you faster than some of the corners on the Schukyll Expressway. Hey, over twenty four years without a major championship will do that to a city.
