    If this is d_b, my apologies. Pretty big move for stay-the-course Augusta National.

    Thankfully, ESPN will use CBS announcers and only use Mike Tirico as the host. No Chris Berman. Yet.

    This lends itself to many exciting possibilities. Perhaps Martha Burk and Chris Berman can team up for a highlight show together. Or wrestle in the mud.

    Would like to see Scott Van Pelt get in on some of the action here.

    ESPN already is in Masters-speak:

    "We are honored by the opportunity to work with the Tournament to help it achieve its goal of growing the game of golf around the world," ESPN president George Bodenheimer said in the same statement.

    "the Tournament"?!

    Where they gonna put the ESPN Masters Game Day crew and desk? Maybe on that little bridge on Amen Corner.

    Did he say "tournament" or "tooounahment"?

    God, I hope we don't have to hear anymore Jim Nantz salivating over Augusta-just as long as we don't get Berman instead.

    Live from the Butler Cabin, it's Stu Scott hosting The Master's edition of Around The Horn.

    Mike Tirico makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X

    Tirico and VanPelt will have to be there.

    CBS Crew is fine except for two things.

    1. Nantzy

    2. The absence of Gary McCord.
