At The End of The Day

I walked and walked every day until my calves burned and kept walking. I could feel my body burning calories and processing water. Damn I have been sitting too much of late.

The Masters was perfection…the weather, the grounds, the staff and even the bathroom. I did a number one day and the stall was cleaner than back home. They had quilted toilet paper…top shelf stuff.

There were to guys in the bathroom directing traffic and announcing open stalls. The toilets flushed automatically. The sinks, soap and towels were all automatic.

I saw a guy taunt Tiger on his set up and two guards snatched him from the crowd. He is gone and privileges revoked for life.

There were tens of thousands of happy people all four days and I was one of them.

I had long chats with a CBS Sports sound man. He had interesting stories to tell. I talked to some officials especially one old fell who had an Appalachian State ball cap on.

I struggled to stay cool in the bright sun. My face and arms and legs are brown and my feet are white. Typical golfers tan.

I sat beside an old fellow that flew in for the day. Going to the Masters was on his bucket list. He had a great time.

Masters badges and the opportunity to go are rare. I hope I can do it again one day.

Sounds like a great event - your legs will forgive you eventually!

No hotdogs at the Masters.

Glad you had fun.
That's kind of B.S. that you can't heckle a guy in between shots, it happens in every sport.

Being banned for life too? Man, you'd think he slept with Tiger's wife.....

Fans have never been allowed to heckle golfers. You can't even heckle the guys finishing at the bottom.

When I lived in San Antonio I had the chance to go to the Texas Open each year. Never went. I kind of wish I had.

I think I would like to go to the Masters just because it would be on my bucket list of sporting events to attend.

Glad you had a great time. I'm sure it was very beautiful. Something tells me I don't have the proper dress for this place.

I'm disappointed about the hot dogs. It is America you know.

I don't know if I'll ever be able to go again. 4 Days was unreal. Perfect weather.

Did I say that they didn't sell Hot Dogs?

Egg salad $1.50
Tuna Salad $1.50
Ham and cheese on rye $1.50
Pimento Cheese $1.50
Club $2.50
BBQ $2.50
Chicken 2.50
Beer was $2.50 a glass and coke was $1.25.

Cheap and good food. But no Hot dogs.

My only complaint was that they put mayo and mustard on EVERYTHING! Who does that?!

Everyone in the south.
