Rock On: Get a life, Adam Scott

Published: Monday, April 15 2013 9:17 p.m. MDT

PERSPECTIVE, PLEASE

There’s nothing wrong with the Masters announcers going all Masters, but when the winning putt dropped this year, Jim Nantz whisper-shouted, “Adam Scott! A life changer!”

Maybe, though Rock On would beg to differ.

Casual Friday is a life changer. Sea salt caramel ice cream is, too.

The Masters?

Just a really good day at the office.

A REAL VISUAL

Coaches love to refer to certain type players as “a confident young man.”

That certainly holds true with Michigan guard Spike Albrecht. Following the Wolverines’ NCAA championship loss to Louisville, Albrecht tweeted to supermodel Kate Upton: "hey saw you at the game last night, thanks for coming out! Hope to see you again" [sic].

That drew a chuckle from Michigan coach John Beilein, who told WTKA-AM in Detroit: “I think he’s got a shot there.”

Regarding the recruitment the 5-foot-11, 170-pound freshman, Beilein told USA Today: “He obviously does not pass the eye test.”

As far as dating Upton goes, here’s guessing he doesn’t really pass that eye test, either.

EVERYDAY WEAR

Last week the Salt Lake Bees sponsored Ugly Sweater Night at Spring Mobile Ballpark.

Which raises the question: With Rick Majerus’ sweater hanging in the Huntsman Center, isn’t every night Ugly Sweater Night up there?

THE ERASER

Reports say Alex Rodriguez allegedly tried to buy records from a Florida “anti-aging clinic” to prevent the release of information that could tie him to performance enhancing drugs.

Theoretically, Rodriguez could shred such records.

While he’s at it, why not just shred the Baseball Records Book, too?

COOPERSTOWN QUERY

Twenty-year-old Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper hit homers on his first two at-bats on Opening Day.

But apparently it didn’t go to his head. Harper asked teammate Chad Tracy if it was OK to make a curtain call.

Next time he needs help, he might be asking whether he should wear a tie to the Hall of Fame ceremony.

MARLINSANITY

Fans at the Miami Marlins home opener, wearing T-shirts that lambasted management, were ejected.

Sources say this is a bad precedent, since fans may one day be ejected for wearing other insulting things like “Marlins” on their shirts.

BAD AUDIBLE

Arizona quarterback B.J. Denker during spring practice: “I’m the smartest guy on the field.”

Not necessarily.
