  1. Nice pics!!!!….what are there odds on him making the cut?…….odds on being top amatuer?

  2. Go Blue! If only I could be there. I’d bring an ‘M Club Supports You’ banner for him.

    No way would Lion be caught dead in a green jacket, no matter what the celebration. The caddy outfit is embarrassing enough.

  3. Any one know how i can purchase the Michigan shirt the Lion is wearing with the faded shoulders and back? I can’t find it at Mo’s or Mden

  4. I’m a bit confused: Are those photos from this year’s Masters or from 2011?
