The Morning After – April 9, 2012 edition

Hello all! Welcome to the this week’s edition of The Morning After.

70 years ago today, the Fall of Bataan and Corregidor took place, and it’s subsequent Death March. To commemorate those who went through it, the Philippines commemorates it with the holiday. Thus this, coupled with the Easter weekend, proved to be one really long weekend.

Meanwhile, Bubba Watson became the latest winner of the Green Jacket, joining the group of first-time major winners that have dominated the sport as of late. He won it on a playoff against Louis Oosthuizen, who announced his presence early, thanks to a double eagle. It’ll take a herculean shot to win a cup, and Bubba pulled out one in the second playoff hole.

So, congratulations to him. You can probably expect something more on this later on today.

    I’m panicking. Yesterday’s Red Sox game was very painful. Are the AL East standings upside down?

    I’d panic if I were Boston. Their pitching staff sucks after Lester…
