A couple of weeks ago, we were talking in the sports department about different games and different events. One of our interns asked me if I could go to one event, which event would I choose. I didn't even hesitate. The Masters. She was stunned. She's a big football fan, and said "What about the Super Bowl?" Nope, for me its the Masters.
This is my favorite week. I love everything about the Masters. The tradition, the course, the players, even Jim Nantz's sometimes corny lines.
I've been to the Masters one time. We went in 2004 when Mike Weir was the defending champ. It was awesome! As we were driving into Augusta, the closer we got to the course, the bigger my smile got. It was everything I had dreamed about and more. So beautiful. So peaceful. So awesome.
Watching it on TV just makes me want to go back. To see the dogwoods and the azelias, the manicured greens and fairways, to feel the history and to watch the greatest golfers in the world play for a title that everyone wants is too amazing for words. I can't wait!!!
