Playing the Field: Masters recap, Sapp files for bankruptcy

Yep, that's a pink driver. What of it? Did you win the Masters?

You probably know by now that Bubba Watson won the Masters yesterday. Still, we here at Playing the Field would like to salute a truly deserving champion. Not because of his performance or anything, but because he embodies everything Tiger Woods does not. He has never had a lesson in his life. He doesn’t break down video of his swing. And he carries a pink driver. PINK, people!

Also, he made Masters clown Billy Payne look like a complete fool in the post-win clubhouse interview by blowing off his handshake.

 

OK, so leaving Payne hanging on the handshake was probably an accident. But we’re going to pretend the fool who won’t even let women play at Augusta was just shown up by the champion. We can get behind that. Nice try on the nose itch, Billy.

Speaking of something we can get behind, we certainly identify with Phil Mickelson. His triple bogey meltdown on the fourth hole was something we’ve all been through on the golf course. I am particularly fond of the second shot from under the bush.

Warren is a Sapp

With all the great on-field (/court/course) action this weekend you might have missed former NFL crybaby Warren Sapp’s declaration of bankruptcy. Sapp, who is now paid to say dumb stuff on NFL Network instead of unsolicited during his playing career, apparently owes $6.7 million to creditors and in child support.

In case you forgot the story of three separate women suing him in 2003, while still playing for the Bucs, now you know why he owes so much child support.

As for the debt, well that will happen when you charge 240 pairs of Jordans and a lion skin rug. Because really, how embarrassing is a mansion floor without a lion skin rug?

Sapp is still raking in $115,881 per month according to the bankruptcy filing, but reportedly he is out at NFL Network. I’d be willing to make asinine, undocumented claims about Jeremy Shockey for only half of the $500K NFL Network pays him yearly.
