Tiger Scores

Tiger Scores

The media are covering golf as never before, thanks to Tiger Woods. Suddenly a game played by pear-shaped men in gaudy duds on ecologically wasteful courses, where alcoholism and gambling are rampant, is sexy.

The connection to alcohol remains, of course — most of Mr. Woods’ extracurricular partners seem to be cocktail waitresses, and he sat out the Breathalyzer Invitational at his exclusive home course in Florida. Experts agree that he needs to work on his drive.

Sports fans should keep this in perspective, though. If he wants to match the record set by NBA champion Wilt Chamberlain, the PGA’s Tiger Woods has a long way to go.

One Response to “Tiger Scores”

    How we do love a tawdry tale, especially when it involves a pseudo-squeaky clean star athlete and not one, but many extramarital partners. There’s two things I don’t understand, however. How can each of these nordic bimbos think they’re exclusive and how can so many have had 2-3 year “affairs” with the Tiger? The mere thought gives “Meet Me in St. Louis” an entirely new meaning.

    Oh, change the name of your blog. I don’t want my husband reading it. Happy holidays, kiddo!
