Congrats to the New York Post: Thursday’s photo of Tiger Woods on its cover was the 20th consecutive day the newspaper had mention of him on either its front or back page.
The previous record — 15 consecutive front-page stories dedicated to 9/11 back in 2001.
Nice perspective on life.
From the story (linked here): “Tiger Named Best Swinger of the Decade”
He’s just that good.
Tiger Woods was acknowledged yesterday for his athletic prowess – this time, outside the bedroom.
The philandering dog and world – class golfer was voted “Athelete of the Decade” by members of the Associated Press yesterday, giving Woods a pass on recent revelations — and his own admission — that he cheated on his wife.
The record was noted as well on TheSportsHernia.com, comparing how Tiger Woods and 9/11 have now been linked: “Two topics with about as much in common as Lyle Alzado and Stephen Hawking.”
The site also reported that during the Post streak, the site CatChannel.com also had a story posted on Dec. 9 with the headline: “Tiger Undergoes Spaying.”
