The Masters 2012…Tear Out Day


20120411-162339.jpg

So another great Masters this year with Bubba Watson beating Louis Oooooothisoozen for the green jacket. As I sat watching from our tv truck as Watson hit this crazy hook out of the rough to land about 8 feet from the pin and a win, I had only one thing on my mind…on Monday we had to strike the tv compound.

Ugh.

Here’s the thing…on MOST tv events such as basketball games or baseball games or football games, there is 1 or maybe 2 trucks. In the case of The Masters…there are literally hundreds of trucks (ok…THAT might be stretching but it sure SEEMS like it) in our compound. And on Monday we get to tear out all the cables, all the cameras and get the equipment back in the trucks so they can move on to other events (such as The Heritage…where I am now). Since I’ve already written about Augusta & all of its magic, here’s the dirty side of what we do after a large event such as this. Exciting cant even begin to describe it!
