Angel Cabrera ... where have we heard that name before? Oh, right, he's the guy who won the Masters in 2009. Anyway, as is tradition, Cabrera gets to choose the menu for the Masters' Champions Dinner to be held Tuesday night.
Cabrera's choice of meals? Meat, meat, more meat, meat stuffed with meat, meat pureed and drizzled over meat, and probably meat-based drinks, too. Courtesy of Waggle Room, here's what your favorite Masters champions will be dining on come Tuesday eve:

Sweet mother of mercy. I gotta get me one of those green jackets. That all sounds delicious.
You can tell a lot about a champion by the food they choose. Tiger Woods, for his first dinner at age 22, chose milkshakes, cheeseburgers and fries, while Phil Mickelson went for barbecued ribs and chicken. Vijay Singh selected Chilean sea bass, while Mark O'Meara rocked chicken fajitas. (For a large list, click here.) Worst choice? Hands down, Sandy Lyle's 1989 selection of haggis -- sheep organs and oatmeal stuffed in a sheep's stomach. Mmmm ... it's Augustarrific!
