By running away with the American Express Championship this weekend, Tiger Woods extended his PGA Tour winning streak to six. This, of course, excludes his recent performance in Ryder Cup and some other match play in which he was merely human. I'm sure Tiger's really broken up about that. Six straight tournaments is, what? Three million dollars or so, maybe more? Not bad for twenty-four rounds of golf.
Fittingly, Tiger's going to take a little vacation over the coming weeks:
"I'm getting away for a little bit. As far as golf, I've had enough of it for a while."
Tiger went on to add, "This game for mortals bores me. Now if you'll excuse me, there's a Swedish blonde I need to go turn inside-out." At least he should have said that. If I were the richest athlete in the world and had a ridiculously hot wife, I would definitely talk about how filthy she was in bed, just so everybody would hate me more.
And Grandma wonders why I haven't found a nice girl to settle down with.
