Hey Lama, How About Something For The (Sex) Effort?

It's almost as if Bill Murray himself wrote the headline for the latest golf story I read. Scrolling through the 'ol Google Reader, I happened upon this -- "Dalai Lama says faith can bring Woods discipline."

Ahh, golf and the Dalai Lama. We all know the famous quote from Caddyshack, when Carl Spackler delivers a random and brilliant soliloquy about his experience with, a person he likes to call, "the Lama."

Well Dalai recently was asked about Tiger Woods, and offered up his own advice.

Tibet's exiled spiritual leader told The Associated Press during a brief interview in his hotel suite in Beverly Hills that he had not heard of Woods, but when the circumstances were explained to him he said that when it comes to adultery, "all religions have the same idea."

"Whether you call it Buddhism or another religion, self-discipline, that's important," he said. "Self-discipline with awareness of consequences."

I have absolutely no idea what any of that means, but I do appreciate any opportunity to talk about the Lama and golf. Gunga. Galunga.
