Golf may have a new superstar in the making, and he showed just how calm and poised he can be on golf’s biggest stage. While he fell short of winning in his first Masters tournament, he was able to keep his wits about him and stay steady into a second place finish in one of the PGA tours biggest tournaments.

I will probably get blasted for even posing this question, because it seems unimaginable for some people to think Tiger Woods, or any golfer would even take steroids. But before you decide to throw me into the fire, just think about some of the things that have gone on for the last few years. Some of it adds up to some suspicious thoughts about him and his sudden decline.

Today’s doppelganger is in honor of the U.S. Open. We give you 2006 U.S. Open winner and current contestant Geoff Ogilvy and Andrew “McLovin” Perloff from the Dan Patrick Show. Here’s hoping Ogilvy isn’t as much of a whining narcissist as “McLovin” plays.
Some people think they have tough jobs. Cops, firefighters, even the guys on Seal Team 6 can give you an argument about who has the roughest gig. With all due respect, those guys are all pussies compared to our guest Blast-Caster.
Chris Humpherys from SportsChump is the official bartender of Sports Blog Movement, and just from J-Dub’s rampant alcoholism alone, that’s a more dangerous job than storming the beach at Normandy against a full army of eight-dicked, syphillitic, Ron Jeremy-clone space monster zombies.
That notwithstanding, with in honor of today being the opening day of the Masters, the esteemed Mr. Humpherys has been kind enough to share some of the insights he collected first-hand by being on the grounds at Augusta National during last year’s tournament.

Even if you aren’t a golf officianado, this is “can’t miss” stuff for any sports fan!
In honor of it being Masters Week, we have a golf Doppelganger.
In any event, there’s really no denying the resemblance between Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers and golfer B.J. Novak.
But, just like those cheesy TV commercials tyring to sell you some mail-order crap…JUST WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
We really would be remiss if we made an Aaron Rodgers reference and didn’t point out that Will Ferrell’s “Elf” character was clearly modeled after him.
You might be thinking, “Another North Korea, Kim Jong Un, Dennis Rodman article!? Come on dude, give it a rest!”
Okay, okay! Last one I promise.
Last week, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un proposed a new set of rules for the sport of basketball. Rules that are absolutely ridiculous and would turn the NBA into absolute chaos:
- Dunks count for three points.
- “Three-pointers” that don’t touch the rim are worth four points.
- Baskets within the last three seconds of the game count for eight points.
- You lose a point for missed free throws.
The missed free throw rule would be a big one. If the NBA played by these rules, Shaq would have cost his teams a total of 5,317 points over his career. This would drop his career points per game from 23.7 down to 19.3. Teams would spend 90% of their practices shooting free throws because of the impact that missing one late in a game would have. Inconsistent free throw shooters would get phased out in favor of smaller grindy white guys who shoot 90+% from the line. More white guys!? No. That’s never the answer to anything basketball related. Just ask the Timberwolves.
North Korea’s basketball rules suck. The NBA is fine just the way it is. But all this talk of rule changes got my juices flowing. Which sports actually need rule changes? I’ve compiled a list below.
Here are sports that would become instantly more watchable with a few simple rule changes.

Extreme athlete Caleb Moore died on Thursday as a result of an accident while competing in the ESPN Winter X Games’ freestyle snowmobiling competition. It was the first death in the eighteen year history of the X Games, and is a huge blow to extreme sports and the future of how those events are sold and televised. Continue reading
Bubba Watson wins the 2012 Masters Tournament at Augusta National today in a play-off against Louis Oosthuizen to day to capture his first major win, and perhaps the most coveted in all of professional golf. This is especially sweet for Bubba since he lost a playoff that he really was in contention for in the 2010 PGA Championship.
|From Jamie Squire/Getty Images – Bubba walking up from getting his shot unseen out of the woods onto the 10th green during the playoff on Sunday.
Tiger Woods stopped all naysayers — at least for a few more weeks — as he dominated the field this week to beat Graeme McDowell on Sunday by 5 strokes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on Sunday.
