Briefly.

Today’s math problem: If Charlie is 68 and his girlfriend is 22, how much money does Charlie have?

Trivia #1: What game is sometimes called “Roshambo?”

Trivia #2: The Masters Tournament was originally called the “Augusta National Invitational.” What year did the name change? – 1924, 1932, 1939, 1941, 1955, 1968, 2019
Trivia #3: Who has made the most cuts at the Masters? Bonus: How many cuts? – Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Tiger Woods, Ben Crenshaw, Lee Trevino, Dane Hubbard

Xander Schauffele shot even par yesterday and stands tied for 13th place in the Masters, 8 shots behind leader Justin Rose. What I’m saying is, he has a chance!

Good news: Chip Hawthorne, 6th generation Floridian, is riding his lawn mower 130 miles to raise money for Habitat for Humanity in what is being dubbed the “Mowathon.” Escorted by law enforcement, Hawthorne took off from Winter Garden, FL at 6 a.m. on Thursday and expected to reach the Gulf of Mexico around 8 p.m. next Thursday while averaging about 10 mph.

Useless information supposed to fire my/your imagination: Tickets to practice rounds at the Masters are $75 while tickets to the tournament are $115.

So Baylor goes up 9-0 on previously undefeated Gonzaga and goes on to beat them and win the NCAA men’s Championship in a game that arguably was never in question. Arguably.

Speaking of Baylor, they did not commit a turnover in the championship game until 7 minutes (or so) into the second half. That, my friends, will win basketball games.

Professional basketball frustrates me. (you may have noticed) What really burns me is how lazy so many players are when running the pick-n-roll. One player usually attempts to set a pick but laziness makes the pick useless, and when a decent pick is actually set the other player involved rarely uses the pick. If you want to argue this point please buy me a beer first.

Have you ever noticed that people won’t take the time to look up important information, but they’ll spend 15 minutes taking a quiz to find out what kind of potato they are?

Boston sports fans, suck it up! We’ve had a good run. The Patriots were awful last season, by our standards, the Bruins and Celtics have been struggling and the Red Sox are not expected to have much of a season. Get over it!

Speaking of the Red Sox, after their 0-3 start they won 4 in a row. That’s called a “winning streak.” They scored a total of 5 runs in the first three games and have averaged 8.25 runs per game since. BTW, their losing the first three games at Fenway was their worst start at home in 73 years.

San Diego Padres’ star  Fernando Tati Jr. suffered a partially dislocated shoulder on a big swing Monday night. For the record, he struck out on the pitch.

Maybe it’s just me but I would say the worst hat in movie history is the worn by Forrest Gump Jr. when he first meets his Daddy.

Article: “David Wells had this to say about MLB moving the All-Star game out of Atlanta” Ya, I’m interested in what David Wells says. Not!

Quote for the week: “…I’m gonna go back and get a Caesar salad with croutons and all this shit, right, and go ahead and take me a nice, fat shit and get my stomach all right and everything…” – Marshawn Lynch during a live broadcast of a Fan Controlled Football game. Really.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: High-profile dog expert Cesar Milan, known for the Emmy-nominated television series “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan” is speaking out about what he believes is really causing President’s Biden’s dog Major to act out after reportedly biting two people at the White House in recent weeks. Milan described the White House environment as “a place full of tension” and that the problem doesn’t lie with Major, but with the situation and people the dog is surrounded by. (I guess this is comparable to arguing that pitbulls are really good dogs)

I can’t complain but sometimes I still do…

Trivia #1 answer: What game is sometimes called “Roshambo?” – The hand-game, “Rock paper scissors”

Trivia #2 answer: The Masters Tournament was originally called the “Augusta National Invitational.” What year did the name change? – 1924, 1932, 1939, 1941, 1955, 1968, 2019 – The present name was adopted in 1939

Trivia #3 answer: Who has made the most cuts at the Masters? Bonus: How many cuts? – Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Tiger Woods, Ben Crenshaw, Lee Trevino, Dane Hubbard – Jack Nicklaus (37)

Be careful out there.

“Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I’d gladly do it, ‘cause

I don’t want to fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don’t want to fade away
In your heart I want to say”
