Heading into day two, Tiger is 4 strokes off the lead.

Good, I say. I can't confirm based on personal experience, but I know people who've been in the presence of him and I've been told he's arrogant and callous towards fans. Lord knows he whines about people taking pictures. Hell, his father used to blow whistles and airhorns when he was growing up to teach him to block out distractions and then he turns into a whiner complaining about an occasional flashbulb.

All this talk about him winning the grand slam before we've even completed one major event of 2008 annoys me. So I hope he loses.

Go Lefty!

I did not realize he let anyone else play this week. Quick, let's cut to Tiger on the putting green, he is chewing juicy fruit today.

Hmmm well lets see the headlines on the day after the Masters.... Immelman overcomes cancer, comes back, wins his first major and his first masters and should be headlining at least the golf page....

No, there's goddam Tiger with his mug getting the big picture, and then a smaller picture tucked away in the corner as a "substory" for Immelman.

This really pisses me off. Tiger gets all the coverage all the time whether he wins or loses, and the winner gets second billing. Does anyone know who Trevor Immelman is? Probably not because you wouldn't even know he won the tournament based on how much coverage goddam Tiger gets.

I know, what the hell are they thinking? Why the phuck do they keep paying so much attention to him? You would think he was the greatest golfer ever or something.

Oh wait...

He his.

Dumbass.

Nice. The story is about the winner of the best tournament of the year (IMHOP), not about why someone else did not win. The status of the person who did not win is not important. I fail to see how making that observation makes someone, as you so delicately put it, a dumbass.

You're an asshole. He lost the tournament, but he got all the press. Immelman won the tournament, but he got markedly less press. Why? Because the media has a hard-on for Tiger 24/7. If he wins, they cream themselves over the opportunity to cover it. If he loses, they cream themselves over the opportunity to write about why he lost and how he made a valiant effort to come back and couldn't get it done even though he obviously deserved it and got robbed by the course.

Do you honestly believe a guy who lost a tournament deserves more press than the guy who won the tournament? If you do, you're as much a jackass as Tiger is for thinking that he's so special that he can win a grand slam before he's even teed up at the first major.

I'm glad he lost and I hope he keeps losing with regularity.
