  • Circus horror as three-year-old is sent 8 metres above tiger pit at Chinese zoo

    Spectators screamed in horror as a three-year- old circus girl tottered 130 metres along a tightrope above an enclosure full of hungry tigers. The six Siberian big cats eyed little Zhang Xiaoyan with anticipation as, buffeted by strong winds, she made her perilous journey with no safety net. Visitors criticised the crazy stunt which began when the wire was strung eight metres above the pen at Changzhou Yancheng Zoo, eastern China.
  • Tone deaf Tiger: He compared his Masters comeback to Ben Hogan’s brilliant 1950 win at Merion

    After Tiger got caught cheating on his wife with porn stars, pancake waitresses, cocktail waitresses and many others, he disappeared for months and eventually went to rehab for “sex addiction.” He’s back at The Masters and he’s doing quite well for having taken so much time off. But he hit a terrible note during a press conference when he compared his comeback to that of Ben Hogan, one of golf’s legends. In 1949 Ben Hogan and his wife, Valerie, were driving in their car when a Greyhound bus crossed the center line and hit them head on. Ben threw himself...
  • Augusta bringing out the best in Phil Mickelson again

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Phil Mickelson loves everything about Augusta National, and you can see it in his results. No matter what's happening in his life or his game, he finishes in the top 10, usually top five. From his victories in '04 and '06, to his record-tying 30 on the front nine on Sunday last year, to his three straight third-place finishes from 2001 to '03, Phil thrills at Augusta like no place else. He's at it again. Mickelson hit 10 of 14 fairways, blistering an assortment of eye-popping drives — one nearly reached the crosswalk on the ninth fairway...

    In his February public apology, Tiger Woods vowed he would show more respect to the game of golf. No more fist pumping, no more club tossing and no more profanity-laden outbursts after bad shots. He made it about 42 holes. WATCH VIDEO

    A prankster in the skies above Augusta, Ga., trails a sign satirizing Tiger Woods that reads: "Tiger: Did you mean bootyism?" The sign is probably satirizing Woods' statement during last week's press conference in which he said he planned to return to Buddhism.

    Tiger Woods is more open to the press than BO. We have good evidence he has answered questions from a bank of reporters ELEVEN TIMES since Dear Reader had his "police acted stupidly" moment, and his numbers began to tank. BO last had to go unscripted before the media on July 22, 2009. Not that I am complaining--he is a liar, and the less we hear from him the better. But if George Bush took this long to speak to the media after such partisan divides, you can bet the "objective" (ha ha) media would be attacking him day and...
  • Tiger Woods returns to golf in Augusta... with an army of 90 bodyguards

    04/05/2010 10:41:48 AM PDT · by Justaham · 64 replies · 1,860+ views
    Tiger Woods will be guarded by a ‘ring of steel’ of 90 private bodyguards – including former FBI and Secret Service agents – as well as armed deputies on his return to golf at the Masters tournament this week. The unprecedented security is in place because of fears he may be confronted by one of his 15 alleged mistresses. The bodyguards are thought to have been given photos of his alleged lovers, including porn star Joslyn James who has threatened to picket the tournament with a group of friends with megaphones. One guard said last night: ‘None of these girls...

    Tiger Woods' a former kindergarten teacher disputed a story today that he once told about an incident where he was tied to a tree and spray painted with the N-word by older kids. In a 2005 book written by Charles Barkley, Woods said he was taunted at a young age by schoolmates because he was bi-racial. The teacher, Maureen Decker, said the story is a complete lie and that she's been unfairly maligned. Decker, who has hired lawyer Gloria Allred, wants a retraction and an apology.

    I Hope Tiger Woods Fails to Make the Cut at The Masters Monday morning it will begin. First ESPN, CBS and the other boot-licking media will start the broadcast vomit overkill of Tiger Woods and his press orgy at The Masters Golf Tournament. They will preview the press orgy ad nauseum Monday morning before it happens, interrupt regular programming Monday afternoon while it happens, and bombard us with clips and snippets of the Tiger Woods press orgy every moment day and night until the winner holes out on Sunday. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see CBS (Clown...

    Tiger Woods has got a million problems, and one of them is that he's out $10 million. That's reportedly the amount he paid mistress No. 1, Rachel Uchitel, to keep quiet right as the scandal broke. Uchitel was outed by the National Enquirer as having an affair with Woods in November. A week later, Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant in his neighborhood, allegedly after his wife, Elin, confronted him about the story and the affair after finding text messages from Uchitel on his phone. In the day after the stories of Tiger's cheating came out, Uchitel...

    BAGHDAD – When the call came in, Capt. Curt Degeyter knew he had to act fast.  A seven-month-old male tiger at the Baghdad Zoo was acting sluggish and experiencing tremors; by all signs he was getting worse. No one at the zoo could determine the problem and if something wasn’t done soon, the tiger might die. Upon hearing of the animal’s plight March 24, Degeyter, a doctor of veterinary medicine assigned to 1st Armored Division, U.S. Division - Center, quickly made his own calls to other U.S. Army veterinarians to help formulate a plan of action. When Degeyter received the...

    PALM HARBOR, Fla. (CBS) Tiger Woods said Tuesday he will return to golf next month at the Masters, ending a four-month hiatus brought on by a sex scandal that shattered his image as the gold standard in sports. "The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect," Woods said in a statement. "After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta."

    ORLANDO, Fla. — The ambulance crew that responded after golfer Tiger Woods crashed his SUV would not allow his wife to ride with him to the hospital because they thought it was a case of domestic violence, documents released Friday by the Florida Highway Patrol show. But a police officer who responded said he didn't know where the crew got that information because he never heard it from anyone at the scene. The reports also show that Woods' wife, Elin, turned over two bottles of pain pills to troopers after the Nov. 27 crash outside the couple's suburban Orlando home....

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol was flooded with e-mails criticizing their handling of the investigation of the crash involving golfer Tiger Woods that led to him admitting to extramarital affairs. A review by the Orlando Sentinel found that the highway patrol and its umbrella agency, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, got more than 400 e-mails in the days after the November crash outside Woods' home near Orlando. Many of the e-mails accused the highway patrol of doing shoddy work and of treating Woods more like a celebrity than a suspect. A small percentage of...

    MONTREAL (AFP) - French guru Claude Vorilhon, alias Rael, advised golf superstar Tiger Woods in an open letter on Thursday to divorce his wife and embrace "Adultery is not mental disease but a very normal behavior among both humans and animals," said the leader of the atheist Raelian Movement, whose followers believe life on earth was created by extra-terrestrials. "I encourage you to explore what more and more people are calling 'polyamory,' which means loving many people simultaneously and with no jealousy," he said. .... "If she (Elin Nordgren) doesn't get therapy, you will be better off divorcing such a...

    Table Of Wisdom ^ | February 24, 2010 | by MrArbitrage
    Jon Friedman of Marketwatch recently wrote a column in which he contends that Tiger Woods will eventually be bigger than ever as long as he can get control of his sex-addiction and that the public views it as such. Friedman also highlighted the fact that the public loves a “comeback story” which will be a key factor in Tiger’s future success. I agree with Friedman’s entire premise but I don’t think that Woods needs to wait for public perception to turn. It is not a question of whether Tiger Woods can become “bigger than ever”. Tiger Woods –is- bigger than...

    Friends have been asking me why I haven't written my take on "the Tiger Woods deal," so here it comes. First, let me just say that I'm still having trouble getting past the video games and Fruit Loops. That's if I'm to believe the report that Tiger was so distraught after his indoor athleticism became public -- and turned into what some people call a Shakespearean tragedy -- that he crawled into deep, lonely hiding and occupied his time playing video games and eating Fruit Loops. Maybe it is true, and that's why Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg of IMG, said...

    Shock jock Howard Stern lines up lovers of Tiger Woods for $100,000 beauty contestChris Ayres, Los Angeles February 24, 2010 As if Tiger Woods’s apology last week for his serial philandering wasn’t enough of a public humiliation, several of his former mistresses have agreed to take part in a beauty pageant in which they will compete for a $100,000 (£65,000) prize. The Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant, organised by the US shock jock Howard Stern, will be held on March 10. So far, only four of the golfer’s former mistresses — out of the 13 identified in the press —...
