From the Masters: The rock star arrives

AUGUSTA – The rock star of golf has arrived. At approximately 3 p.m., local children chased his golf cart through the parking lot, and the obscure sound of velcro opening to unleash hoards of personal cameras engulfed an otherwise peaceful early Monday afternoon of Masters week at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Weekly Whatup 3/31

Never, in my 10 years of filling out a bracket, have I had a year as absolutely pathetic as this one. I'm done, finished, caput – not a single team left in the Final Four. I went o-fer.

Tiger puts golf back on the map

ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods was down to his last shot at Bay Hill, tied for the lead as he measured a 15-foot birdie putt. That's when he heard a lone voice among thousands of people packed into the grandstand behind the 18th green.

Weekly Whatup 3/24

My bracket is a complete mess - which is pretty ridiculous considering the lack of big upsets, Cinderella's no-show and a whole lot of big names still standing in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.

This week, we're going to start with an apology. Last week, I gave a quick review of the 2008-2009 basketball season for all our area teams. Outside of the Statesboro boys team, I guessed most squads were disappointed with the way things ended…wrong.

Weekly Whatup 2.24

Man, what a week. I stood at Metter High School this past week, leaning against the wall behind the baseline watching the end of the Emanuel County Institute-Savannah Country Day girls' game - an appetizer before Portal took on Calvary Day in the Region 3-A tournament. It dawned on me that, "Yes, I do love basketball."
