ESPN Gets Coverage Of Masters' First Two Rounds

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

PGA continues to make changes under new Chairman Billy Payne as he's moving the first two rounds of the Masters from USA to ESPN. The HD telecasts will air from 4:00-7:00pm ET, with replays from 8:00-11:00pm. ESPN also plans to use CBS’ production and announcers, but ESPN’s Mike Tirico will host the telecast.

This is huge for ESPN, but you know they plan on getting Berman involved in this somehow too. Can you feel my excitement?!?!

I can't wait for Berman to interview Hootie "and the Blowfish" Johnson.

Berman once commented that he could not do the Masters beause he is preparing for the NFL Draft during this time of the year, seriously.

He's totally going to dust off that old green blazer of his.

There is no way the Green Jackets let the Jack Ass Berman on the premises. If they do, all holy hell will break loose.
