Hate to be Rude: Augusta on my mind
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
As we’ve learned on television, among other things, Abe Lincoln is honest, Ed Jones is too tall, Charlie Daniels plays a mean fiddle, it’s a bad idea to get into a snowball fight with Randy Johnson, drill sergeants make bad therapists, Elmer Fudd has trouble with the letter R and helium makes an opera room less stuffy.
With apologies to Geico, we wonder if golf fans are looking forward to next week’s Masters. And we answer in the affirmative through a series of golfy questions, unfortunately with no video:
