Talking Masters traditions and media control on Papa Joe Chevalier radio show
Las Vegas-based sports talk DJ Papa Joe Chevalier invited me onto his drive time radio show Friday afternoon to elaborate on a Friday morning blog that caught his eye.
Papa Joe calls the Masters an “anachronism", which is beyond any WorldGolf.com writers’ vocab (probably other than know-it-all Ph.D. Kiel Christanson). For the layman, that means “out of its place in time".
Of course, once I got into the discussion there were few five-syllable words tossed around…Papa Joe and I talked about all the things the Masters & Augusta National can get away with that other institutions can’t, like how can Gary McCord can get a lifetime ban for his “bikini wax” comment while Kelly Tilghman gets a two-week suspension for her “lynch Tiger Woods” gaffe.
We may scrutinize Augusta National for their exclusive policies and aura of secrecy, but it’s a safe bet none of us would ever turn down an invitation.
You can listen to the segment at Papa Joe’s website, PapaJoeTalk.com.
