Tiger Woods & Steve Williams: The next Penn & Teller?

So today Tiger Woods apologized for Steve Williams by saying he "probably went to far" when he kicked a photographer's lens & took a camera from someone in the gallery. Check this out to see the thug himself in action. Tiger went on to say "he was trying to protect me" and "that the crowds can get out of hand". Protect you from what? A guy doing his job taking another picture of you. And I have never seen a golf crowd that out of hand.

First, why did Tiger have to come out and apologize for Steve? Since when does the cat have Steve's tongue? He's an adult, he should apologize for acting like an idiot, Tiger should not have to do this for him.

My thoughts are this, if the snap of a camera is going to cause a PGA Tour player to hit a bad shot he should not be on tour. This comes with the territory, a "hazard" of the job. I have no sympathy for any tour player that complains about a picture being taken of them, regardless of where they are in their swing. The photographers are doing their job and the fans pay more than enough money to spend the day out at a tournament, it is their right to snap a picture whenever they damn well please.

And as for you Steve, you got lucky by landing this job as Tiger's caddy. Because you're Tiger's friend you got this job, it was not based on your qualifications. Your days are numbered pal, it won't be long before your back at Wal-Mart greeting people.

Hey Steve didn't get the job because he was tigers friend. Butch Harmon came up to him and out of about 5-10 caddies he was picked. and anyway no one likes steve williams, nobody.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

I agree,

I love PGA GOLF. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite golfers and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time your golfer plays in a tournament. Also I can sell my players stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.
heres a link

This site has lots of data about dividends and game pots and golfers. It also has alot of information about how the market works.

See you there!
