Fantastic interview here by Shane Bacon with Bubba Watson. He talks about how badly he wants to be friends with Shaun White.

I play golf, and golf is boring, but when you see Shaun White winning for the sixth time in a row and he's got the "O" on there and you feel like you're a part of that even though he has no idea who I am, but I'm going to say me and Shaun are close, that's the cool part, the cool factor to me.
