I have an announcement to make. I’ve already spoken to those close to me, and to the staff, so they aren’t blind-sided by what I’m about to say.
I’m announcing, officially, that I have Flip-Flopped on my Tiger Woods stance, and I am 100% ALL-IN on The Tiger Comeback.
I wrote this story about the Mainstream Golf Media being little more than lapdogs for Tiger, and how they are way too premature in giving him the level of coverage they do…at least before he completes a comeback…until he wins something of some importance.
I’m not going to try to convince you that the Valspar Championship is important…or that out-dueling something called Corey Conners is impressive.
I’m also not going to maintain my journalistic integrity on this matter.
Do I still believe everything I wrote in November? YES.
Am I essentially contradicting most of that? YES.
Do I care? HELL NO!
I am a sports fan most of all. I am reactionary, play favorites, fall for storylines. How can I point out hypocrisy in the sports world if I can’t point it out in myself….I’M A FLIP-FLOPPER.
And this afternoon, my flip-flopping ass will be eating up all the Tiger hoopla!!!!!
