Of course, we all know how important golf is in the grand scheme of things.

Is this an economic position statement, or a criticism of Tiger, or what? Hope it's not a criticism of golf, which is VERY important in the grand scheme of things.

I used to feel sorry for myself because I had no feet but then I met a man who had no Nikes.

I would pay Nike $30 for a good pair of shoes if they paid the children the same wage as Americans. Forget the Tiger commercials, I don't need them.

Instead they charge an average of $100 a pair, and give a big chunk of it to Woods to brainwash the teenyboppers into thinking they are the best shoes. They are no better than other brands.

In the course of reading most of the answers to this post I am once again reminded how many ignorant people are wandering around out there. Sad testimony to the intelligence level of many of our citizens. Hopefully, these morons dont get out too often unless closely supervised.

Ooooo, thanks for the warning Your Assholiness! Are you another one of CPR's unstable personalities, or are you just suffering from the same delusions of grandeur?

Please enlighten us, Oh Master of Intelligence, show us the error of our ways!
