I'd usually be inclined to make a "pot caling the kettle black" joke here, but since it's about something Tiger Woods said, it might break the momentum of the post-racial age we've entered into with Barack Obama's nomination as the Democratic presidential candidate. Anyway, Woods called hockey boring, which is ironic because so is golf. Also, he's black, just like the pot and the kettle. 

The PGA official thought he had the perfect softball question to throw at Tiger Woods to kick off a media teleconference with the world's No. 1-ranked player yesterday.

"Detroit or Pittsburgh?" Julius Mason asked of Woods during a session to promote the 90th PGA Championship at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

"I don't really care," Woods replied. "I don't think anybody really watches hockey any more, do they?"

It's good that even without context, Woods knew the question was about hockey. Had the reporter been asking his preference between the two cities, Tiger probably would have done the logical thing and shrugged and said "Eh, meteor."
