Tiger Woods Still a Big Draw I Guess, Will Get $3 Million for Abu Dhabi Appearance


My dad and I were talking this morning about the University of Arizona's recent hiring of Rich Rodriguez. A former Wildcat myself, I've been open about how excited I am about the hire, and really think he could do wonders in Tucson. My dad? Not so thrilled. He said he didn't really like the guy and thought it was crazy that he left West Virginia, his alma mater, to go coach at Michigan. I simply told my dad that there were about a million reasons why he'd leave for the Wolverines, and that's true. People, at the end of the day, chase dollars (well, except for bloggers, but you guys know that ... hey, can I borrow $5?).

So it shouldn't surprise you that Tiger Woods decided to pick the Abu Dhabi tournament over Torrey Pines. At the end of the day, which one is going to help his bottom line?

The thing is, nobody really knew how much it might help, but reports are out, and Woods is getting $3 million just to show up. Insane? Maybe. Telling? Definitely.

We can sit here and want Rory McIlroy or Rickie Fowler to be the new face of golf, but the truth is, it's Tiger and then nobody even close. Why did Fred Couples pick Tiger for the Presidents Cup? Well, because he's one of the best match player golfers of all time, is one of the most successful golfers of all time, and is a close friend to Couples. Why did the Presidents Cup want Tiger? Because he brings the viewers.

So be thankful that we still have Tiger. The guy continues to put golf on the map even when everything else is going on, and if nothing else, he moves the needle.

This is uterally redicious. All of the sports figures are all overpaid for playing a game and then check the amount of them that commit crimes, etc.

[p]I’ve got to put cream on for each [url=http://www.clarisoniccanadaoutlets.com]cheap clarisonic outlet
[/url] hour it looks like and flaky and blue . B u t i s i t w o r t h [url=http://www.clarisoniccanadaoutlets.com]clarisonic[/url] i t ? A b s o l u t e l y . Since the skin is totally cleansed and rid off impurities, [url=http://www.clarisoniccanadaoutlets.com]clarisonic canada outlet[/url] the moisturizer is very easily soaked up into the skin . Since then, it’s been a bit of a vicious circle: use Clarisonic for a few weeks, get spots on cheeks, feel like screaming/crying hot salty real tears/stamping tiny feet repeatedly in dramatic beauty-fuelled strop, stop using Clarisonic for a few weeks until the spots bugger off, decide spots must now be gone for good, use Clarisonic for a few weeks … repeat ad nauseum . The tone, texture, and glow of the skin are [url=http://www.clarisoniccanadaoutlets.com]clarisonic mia canada[/url] noticeably improved by the Clarisonic Mia . It can also be quicker and is more effective than using a face washer [url=http://www.clarisoniccanadaoutlets.com]clarisonic mia outlet[/url] or cotton pads to take away a cleansing lotion . When using it on the clarisonic brush nose area, it may also feel a bit uncomfortable or ticklish at first.[/p]
