SoCal Needs a Hero

And his name is Tiger Woods.

Say Boston, where is your golfer? What? You don't have one? That's too bad. You'll just have to live vicariously through Tiger as he shows Boston (Loserville) what it's like to have a real champion.

And one quick thing (before getting back to this compelling U.S. Open playoff) good luck to your squad on Tuesday. You realize that if the Celtics choke on Tuesday, there is no way that they are coming back to win a Game 7. So would you rather be the team to blow a 24-point lead, or the first team to lose an NBA Finals series after leading 3-1?

Not that there isn't precedent for Boston blowing history games, as this year's Super Bowl will attest.

Congrats to Tiger, but Rocco is my new favorite player. Between the peace sign belt buckler, the souvenir pins and hanging in there for 90 holes, he's my hero.

Here's an idea for the PGA, start a tournament called The Also-Ran Classic. Everyone gets to play except Tiger.

For one weekend, Michelson, Els, Mediate, and all the rest of these tomato cans whose names I can't remember get to savor how different their lives would have been if they'd been born in another place and time.

That's pretty much every tournament that isn't a major or run by one of Tiger's sponsors.

Woody Austin would be the stuff!

Don't fret, Boston fans. You still have that G*ddamn NFL ref who invoked the Tuck Rule to look up to.

Why is the PGA Tour going to start a drug testing program? They should just test Tiger and Tiger only. Because really, if he's not on drugs, what does it matter what everyone else is doing?

Tomato cans. Brilliant, Bain.
