For the moment, I'm going to ignore the people who would tell you that "The Masters doesn't start until the back nine on Sunday." I've been watching for almost an hour already, and there's no way that Miguel Angel Jimenez's fucking head is bothering me this much without the tournament having started.

Jose Maria Olazabal has birdied five of the first eight holes to move to -2 and put his name very much into contention. Freddie Couples has a birdie and is tied for the lead with Phil Mickelson, and Tiger just missed a 15-footer that would've put him at -4 as well.

This is one of the best sports Sundays of the year. And there are a lot of things that irk me about Augusta National and The Masters, but you can't argue with only 4 minutes of commercials per hour. Even if one of them is ExxonMobil telling you how great they are for the environment.
