Off The Post

The Masters

By Deborah Lew

Aside from hockey, golf is probably the other most popular sport where people use long, narrow, L-shaped weapons to propel roundish objects into the air at death-defying speeds. Bet you’ve never heard it like that before.

The Masters is the first major tournament of the year as far as golfing goes, and it’s probably the only time where a jacket that awful shade of green is fashionably acceptable…at least, we can hope.

For this edition of Off The Post, Kings players discuss their Masters’ favorites, and their trendy  - or not so trendy – teammates.

What a deadly combination!


The Shot: Who is your pick to win the Masters?

The Pass: Which of your teammates would most likely have a green jacket in his closet?


Matt Greene
