Excuse us golf folks for being overly excited for the Tiger Woods return, but writing about golf the last few months has been rather difficult.
You see, for the most part, the general public cares about a short list of people for each sport, if any. You get Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in the NFL, the Williams sisters in tennis, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant in the NBA and Alex Rodriguez in baseball.
Other than those names, people that care about sports from afar aren't really paying attention. Nobody bothered the general public about Michelle Wie earning her tour card or guys like Chez Reavie winning his first tour event. Those stories fall of soft ears to the percentages.
Now, Tiger can grab everyone's attention again and the golf world will again be thrust into the forefront of sports. I'm excited, you should be excited, and you should join me for my live blog of the event all day. It's going to be a good one.
