Awesome Aussie and Awesome Logos at the 2013 Masters

To hear the “talking heads” tell it, Adam Scott’s 2013 Masters Win is a big deal. Why? Australia has never claimed a Masters victory until now. It seems like this is pretty exciting for just about everyone, but I’m not feeling the enthusiasm for Koala Country. I won’t accuse the media of manufacturing a story to drive headlines and eyes to the sport of golf. I will, however, proclaim that no matter his nationality, ethnicity, or favorite TV show, I’m just plain happy for Adam Scott. And that’s enough of a story to round out my 2013 Masters experience.

For an event that had so much going for it on the way in, the 2013 Masters could have been remembered for some rough occurrences. Rory didn’t show the way he was expected to. A chain smoking Argentinean straight off the set of the Sopranos almost won the damn thing. Oh yeah…and Tiger pretty much shot the bird to the entire sport of golf…again. The latter story could just be unraveling, and it won’t be the last we hear about it. But luckily, Adam Scott turned the thing around to end on a positive.

I don’t know much about Adam Scott. I really don’t even know much about his Golf game. I don’t know if he’s loyal to his significant other, how he treats the little people, or what he eats for breakfast. I do know that Adam Scott seems like a good ambassador for golf and sport in general. The guy is fair to the media, reserved, and seems generally happy to be there. For all I know, Scott has just figured out how to play up the façade the way Tiger did for so long. But that’s another blog entirely. The sport of golf has had to watch its back far too much in the past few years, and it’s nice to watch a (seemingly) nice guy win.

The 2013 Masters also had a winner in the logo department this year. How ‘bout Mercedes-Benz? The luxury car company had its emblem across the entire weekend and on the tournament’s winner. Not a bad weekend for the Benzos! Speaking of logos and here’s where we pay our bills, hopefully you’ve checked out our t-shirt of the month club? Huge discounts on our awesome t-shirts plus free shipping. We’ll even make a custom gift certificate to present to that special someone and they get to pick out the t-shirts that they would like to receive. How awesome is it to get a super soft cool t-shirt in your mailbox every month?

Thanks for reading and congrats Adam Scott. Aussie, Aussie Aussie!!!
