    The Steelers were the BEST team in the NFL last season...you gonna become a Steelers fan?

    The White Sox were the BEST team in MLB last season...you gonna become a White Sox fan?

    Who were you a fan of before Tiger came along?

    I wasn't really interested in golf. I was under the impression that golf was just for rich people and that it was really hard. And even though I still think both of those to be true I find myself more and more interested in the sport.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I like a lot of golfers a lot more than Woods but I have so much respect for him. I love his competitiveness and focus. I would never cheer for anyone over Tim Herron though.

    Jim Furyk! How can you not love the guy? Pretty much any golfer except for Vijay and John Daly is alright with me.

    I'm not much for golf, but I was a Payne Stewart guy.

    just cause I like Tiger doesn't mean I cant recognize that there are other great golfers... but when some of those "great" golfers win 11 majors by the age of 30.. come let me know.

    Good call on Daly. I love Daly. I want him to win the Masters so bad. It would be hilarious. 1 and two for me are Herron and Daly

    Well for all the talk ... I was a golf fan a little before Tiger (got into it in the early nineties or so) and being such IT MAKES ME APPRECIATE WHAT TIGER DOES EVEN MORE. Honestly, saying that everyone likes Tiger because they did not even care before him is really taking away from everything he has and is doing in this sport where it is extremely difficult to win more than two or three times a year (something he does failrly regularly).
    I understand that some people think it is all about Tiger and that takes away from other players, but honestly who else should they talk about? You can take Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Reteif Goosen COMBINED and they only equal Tiger's 11 majors. Tiger has 49 PGA tour wins ... those other four COMBINED have 79 ... and he is at least five years younger than all of them ... he really is THAT good. It is not just a bunch of hype.
    I never said EVERYONE...I can appreciate what he has done and I can appreciate the fact that people who know something about and are interested in golf can root for him...the people that I can't appreciate are the bandwagoners who don't know CRAP about golf and only root for Tiger because it's the fashionable thing to do. That's MY beef!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Substitute "baseball" for "golf" and "Tiger" for "Yankees"

    Sounds like just about every Yankee fan I know Cajun! :razz:
