Pay attention to Tiger Woods--Why?

Pay some attention to Tiger Woods.......even if, and especially if, you don't care for golf.

If you don't care much for art, you still need to try and appreciate daVinci and Dali and vanGogh and Monet. If you don't care for music you still need to try and appreciate Beethoven and Bach and The Beatles and....well, you get the picture....So even if you don't care for sport, but if you get a kick out of seeing human beings make the sublime seem routine, pay some attention to what Tiger is doing and how he's going about it.

By the way, too bad he signed on to be the spokesman for Buick and not Lexus, because nobody better embodies and personifies the concept of 'Relentless Pursuit of Perfection'.

A more substantial article follows, hopefully tonight....but I had to post this now because Tiger, whose chances this week looked bleak Saturday morning, is tied for the lead going into Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. In his career, he has entered the final round of a tournament in the lead, or tied for it, 45 times. In 42 of those 45 instances, he has ended up winning the tournament. The odds are that he will win his third straight PGA tournament this year.

Anyway, this is a once-in-a-generation human being who is currently better than he has ever been at what he does. Enjoy it while it lasts.
