Week in Review: April

Well it's been awhile since I wrote anything but here's a few thoughts on the week that ways

Yes Schwartzel is the newest Master champion but I think a lot of the story is Rory Mcilroy's absolute collapse. A plus 8 after a 4 hole lead? Triple bogeys? Wow. Can he recover? I don't know. But this is a pretty historic collapse.

It's a very long season so anything that happens April will soon be forgotten by August....However Boston's slow start seems important. Boston was expected to dominate after winning the off-season or whatever. But so far a very slow start.

Manny ended his career the only way it could have ...mindnumbling stupid....Manny, an idiot savant of hitting, left a wreckage of stupid moves. So I'd say it was a shame but it's not...just Manny exiting stage right as only he could....

Playoffs have started. Fill in any comments as you see fit...

Manny's exit is a shame. Just like Barry Bonds, Manny is immensely talented, one of the truly gifted hitters that any of us has seen - and, like Bonds, he just couldn't get out of his own way. What makes the whole thing so disappointing, so mindnumbingly stupid, is that Manny (and Bonds before him) just doesn't seem to get it. Really, what the F could he possibly have been thinking by taking PEDs again? It defies any shred of common sense.

Anyway, like Bonds, Manny is now gone from the game, with far more detractors than fans and a permanently-stained reputation. It's a shame that such a talent is going down this history. But he - like Barry - has nobody to blame but himself.

1) Manny! Oh boy. I didn't even find it that surprising actually. He never was the sharpest tool in the shed.

2) I ended up watching the last 1.5 hours of the Master's... and it was incredible. When I turned it on there was a 5-way tie with just about 7? holes to play. CBS even had to acknoledge that for them to show every shot live was very difficult and it was very challenging for them to keep up (they did a great job). McIlroy almost cried at one point. that part was awful.
