John Daly tweets that he'll be spending his Masters Week at the Hooters of Augusta. Now there's a tradition unlike any other.

4. BEST FRIENDS

Canisius will formally announce the hiring of St. Bonaventure graduate Jim Baron as its head basketball coach today. In other news, the Hatfields and the McCoys will be staging a Sunday brunch together later in the month.
