Breakin' Out the Jackets

No, it's not cold here (although I do complain about the weather often...)! I don't mean cold weather jackets. These are a different kind. They're for winners. They're usually green and highly coveted. The competition to get them lasts an entire week and resembles nothing like a reality TV show. Across the United States people (not only sports aficionados) know what they mean. They have a small yellow emblem on the pocket and are full of tradition and pride. Although sometimes they can belong to a game of a slow moving pace, these jackets aren't just given to anyone. You all MUST know what I'm talking about by now!!


As I said on facebook yesterday, I'm so jealous of all the folks getting to go to Augusta this week! A lot of the Sports Management majors here at USC get to actually intern at the Masters since we're so close to Augusta! I have a few friends who are heading down to work it and I have a few other friends going to enjoy all the fun festivities!

Is anyone going to the Masters this week? What day? Have you ever been before? Do tell!!

I was a HRTM major and I applied to intern but didn't get picked! I was pissed! Especially after seeing all of the other people that applied. I'll stop judging now..I honestly think it was because I had my sorority parents weekend the same weekend and my availability sucked. :)

I want to make it there at some point in my life. My grandma has been and my dad doesn't really like to stand and watch golf so we'll see who I would go with. My dad does want to go to the Kentucky Derby at some point so I will definitely be tagging along when he does!

Guess I should be a sports management major at usc? That is so cool!!!

I grew up about 20 minutes from the Augusta Nat'l and never realized how excited people got about it until I was in college in Columbia. It really is beautiful and everyone should see it once in their lives, but what's really crazy is that something so beautiful is in the middle of nasty old Augusta!

Keep your eyes and ears open because you never know when tickets might pop up! Augusta is only an hour and half drive from Cola!!
