there are only a few

Image result for tiger woods
cbs news-tiger wins the masters
i watched on cbs and read the articles

in the world of sports there are only a few athletes that reach the maximum greatness
jim thorpe in multiple sports
babe ruth in baseball
michael jordan in basketball
lebron james in basketball
tom brady in football
muhammad ali in boxing
pele in soccer

these are all people who dominated their sports
these are all people that folks would pay to go see
the only one ive seen live is lebron james

in golf there is arnold palmer and jack nicklaus
definitely after this weekend
tiger woods

now he was already up there as one of the greatest
after this weekend he got elevated more
for winning
also for overcoming odds that almost finished his career

he lost his wife
he wrecked his vehicle
he malingered with the wrong female groups
he got stopped for driving under the influence of vicodin and ambian
he had major back surgery more than once
he had knee surgeries
he played if he played at all awful for several years
almost embarrassing himself
something physically and probably mentally kicked in the last year or so
culminating this weekend at the masters

the masters is like the world series or the world cup or the super bowl
win those and you are the best
now he had won 4 times before but that was 10 years ago
most folks including me felt he would never win it again
were we wrong huh

i rarely watch golf unless tiger woods plays
over the last 10 years i have watched him for awhile but it was painful to watch
many a time i thought he needs to quit
quit though he didnt

i sure hope that someone will write a book about his last 10 years culminating in the win
this weekend at the master
he probably will make a good feel good movie and or documentary

this masters was like a close fought basketball or football game with the team winning in the last minutes
exciting all the way through
it takes a lot for most of us to get excited about golf

i know i was this weekend

he should just quit now
let us all have this our last memory of him playing golf
