LOTD: Bubba, parenting boys and Luther was a blogger?

Some great stories the last couple days:

- Fantastic column from Joe Posnanski on Bubba Watson winning the Masters. Talks about why we love, watch and write about sports. Just a sample:

It feels like the rest of the entertainment world has been trying for years to express the immediacy of sports, to capture what it is about these games that captures us. What, after all, are reality TV shows except an effort to reproduce the drama and unexpected turns of sports? Cooking shows try to be like sports. Televised poker tries to be like sports. Movies try twist endings to surprise us the way sports can and do. Those questions — Will he or won’t he? Can she or can’t she? Victory or defeat? — will startle and thrill and frustrate us forever. This is why I love writing about games.

Plus he gets major bonus points for not one, but two Princess Bride references.

This additional SI coverage of Bubba is great as well. Love that he bought the General Lee from the old show The Dukes of Hazzard.

- Good advice on how to parent boys from The Resurgence.

- Martin Luther was a blogger? The Reformation was fueled by social media? Well, yeah, according to The Economist.
