Is Tiger Watching Tonight?

Its 11:42 pm and I'm sure Tiger was up watching the game! My brother started touting Tiger's skills back when he played as a Junior and I didn't pay much attention, but I soon learned that my brother was bang on with this we all watched him take the golf world by shock and awe I couldn't help but notice how mature and well spoken he was and this is one of the rare occasions that I think he'll want to take his words back. Yes hockey is not quite a major sport but it ranks up there with where golf was before Tiger came along and hopefully he will think about that before he dishes on other athletes...maybe he jealous that he can't get his name on the Stanley Cup...Tiger, the Red team won again and they were wearing skates.
Tiger Woods zings the Stanley Cup finals

Don't count Tiger Woods among those glued to their TVs during the Stanley Cup finals.
The world's top golfer appeared via teleconference on Monday, promoting August's PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit.
Woods was asked if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh.
Woods started to laugh, then landed a zinger.
"I don't really care. Let's talk about the Dodgers," the California native said. "I don't think anybody really watches hockey any more."
But the improved television ratings for this year's finals doesn't seem to match Woods' assessment.
The Penguins' victory over the Red Wings on NBC drew the best overnight rating for a Game 3 of the Cup finals in six years. Pittsburgh's 3-2 win on Wednesday night earned a 2.8 national rating and an 18.2 rating in Detroit, beating out the 15.9 rating for the Pistons' matchup with the Boston Celtics in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals. The combination of Games 1, 2 and 3 have made this the highest-rated and most-watched opening games of the Cup finals since Detroit faced Carolina in 2002.
