Masters Recap and 'Paterno' Review
Release Date: 04/11/2018
Golf is and will always be among the most popular sports in the world with many major tournaments held annually, but none compare to The Masters. The 2018 Masters Tournament was particularly exciting as evidenced by the 18% jump over last year’s ratings - the main reason for that is due to the return of Tiger Woods. He may not have won, but the fact that someone who was considered to have “fallen from grace” last year returned to the sport at all is worth celebrating.
In this episode, Lindsay and Whitney share their takeaways from this year’s Masters Tournament. Not only did they react to the wins and losses, but they also provide their opinions regarding some of the more obvious social issues being displayed on live TV. They also discuss HBO’s “Paterno” movie and provide commentary on how the film portrayed the scandal as well as why more people should’ve been held accountable.
