The weekly recap

Boss of the week:

Bubba Watson

 

After an iconic path to victory, Bubba is the champ. Watson topped Louis Oosthuizin in a sudden death playoff to win the Master’s and his first major title. Oosthuizen made clutch putts and forced a playoff on the 18th hole. On the 10th fairway in the playoff, Watson swung deep in the trees and managed to get 10 feet from the hole from 155 yards away. Watson finished 10-under.

 

Quote of the week

 

 

“Kill the head and the body will die. We’ve got to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore’s head. We want him running sideways. We want his head sideways.”

 

-Gregg Williams, Saints defensive coordinator giving his defense orders to injure San Francisco players.

 

Goat of the week:

Red Sox

 

It is certainly no September collapse and is too early to make predictions for the season, but the Red Sox really blew it against the Detroit Tigers. At the bottom of the 11th inning, Detroit’s Alex Avila nailed a ball deep to right field and earned a two-run homer. The runs gave the Tigers a 13-12 victory over Boston. The Sox start their season 0-3 with their new manager Bobby Valentine.
