    Come on, now. I'm sure there was some interest. But the entire country?

    Apropos of nothing or everything, that is quite a top five. Wow.

    I remember reading or hearing that Verne kinda had to answer for that... he's famous for "Yes Sir", but he sort of appropriated it.

    Right. THIS weekend. But next time Tiger's +3 and barely makes the cut, nothing will be different. While the leaders are playing, we'll see Tiger's "highlights" repeated throughout the day. And again, if you're only watching because Tiger's playing, you don't really like golf. You like being a sheep, who goes where people tell you to go. Try thinking for yourself. It's like going to an art museum because one guy's painting is there. Some of those other works in there are pretty good too. Maybe even better. But you're not going to look at them, because that's not your guy.

    Some people are fans of a particular player or team? In sports?

    I need some time to process this.

    Good thing I'm not one, right? And I have said over and over that I understand it. You overlook that part, though. I totally understand it. But for people like me, who are going to be all they have left when Willie Mays finally falls completely apart, you'd think they'd cater to us a bit more. If Tiger's in the mix, I'll watch, because of the mix, not because of Tiger. Watching a shitty human being play shitty golf does nothing for me. If he plays well, I'm interested. If he's sucking, I could do without all the other sucking.

    Nice to see you're still a curmudgeon after 6 years, or whatever it's been.

    People only watch the teams or players they're fans of? Do you also only listen to the radio when your favorite band is on? Do you only eat one kind of food? Processed, I would imagine.

    Is this a Tiger PED reference?

    God I wish Wayne Levi would have been higher up the leaderboard.
