We offer you a smattering of various topics in this ‘tweener springtime week.
- With the Masters getting underway on Monday, Augusta National‘s policy about women being admitted could become a story again. Only because they traditionally offer a membership to the CEO of IBM, one of the tournament’s biggest sponsors, and–whoops–that person is currently a female.
- The NFL’s free agency period is in its third week, and the pickings are pretty slim. Exactly when the Packers start getting active.
- The Detroit RedWings just qualified for the NHL playoffs for the 21st-consecutive year. Pretty amazing here in the 21st century.
- The Los Angeles Dodgers were sold this week for a MLB-record 2 billion dollars. Seeing a guy like Frank McCourt–who ran the team into the ground while treating it like his personal piggy bank–make off in the deal with as much cash as he stands to get, makes Josh something-something.
- The MLB prognostication has begun in all of your national media circles. Most are seeing a middling-type-year for the Brewers, but as far as I’m concerned, the NL Central is wide open. It’s going to be a fun year.
