Trying to tame Tiger

Congratulations to columnist Rick Reilly of ESPN the Magazine (who had a higher profile, but presumably earned less money, when he wasat Sports Illustrated) for calling out golf star Tiger Woods.

Woods long has been the game's best player and worst sport. Yet rarely do print journalists make reference to his propensity for throwing clubs and screaming expletives when things aren't going his way. And as for the network broadcasters who cover the tournaments, there's even less chance they'll speak up and risk access to His Tigerness.

As Howard Cosell would have said, Reilly's column tells it like it is.
