"No, not soccer," Woods practically spat out. "Hopefully something more physical."

Right. Like golf.

I don't understand how you (or anyone else, for that matter)can really and truly like or appreciate golf and find Tiger "yawn-inducing"...? It just makes me shake my head in wonder...do you even golf? It makes a lot of sense if you just write for a living but if you are a golfer, this type of assessment is just nuts...

You dumb butt. Soccer is a physical game. The varsity girls team where I teach would wip your flabby, middle-aged body into a ridiculous froth of jiggling perspiration and jelly. Soccer players know how to play physically without inducing car-crash-like hits that cause permanent damage (e.g., USA football and collisions at home plate, boxing and cage matches.) Note that Tiger has no children, so he is ignorant of soccer's benefits. Does Baldwin have children? If not, then he, too, speaks from the font of ignorance.

whoa.. I know a whole planet, and probably two that'd disagree with you. Just because as a kid you weren’t athletic, and by your picture, you don’t look fit now.

"Now, that's funny. Because it's true." So are you and tiger not going to let you kids play basketball, baseball, or golf? If you do you are instantly a hypocrite, but judging by you looks you probably will never have kids, I can picture you in you golf flannels.

A guy named Eldrick(instantly white) would play golf. Its obvious Eldrik, and your IQ are below average, but what can you expect from two guys who didn't go to college?

To quote yourself from a previous article where you defended your writing: "There will be things that challenge your preconceived notions." (Aug 8th, Edgewood Tahoe better than Pebble Beach?) Too bad you don't challenge your own. You started out with a personal belief, obviously very unfounded on experience or research of any kind, that soccer is "ridiculous", and used a quote from Tiger Woods as the proof to your hypothesis. Brilliant writing. But not as brilliant as comparing the soccer community to terrorists and NASCAR fans or your assertion that Wood's quip is "more impressive" than what he does on the golf course. What your article has to do with golf, I have no idea. This was obviously an attempt to make someone out there care about what you write. I care, and I look forward to your apology.

Listen, it's quite likely that Woods was kidding and that the joke was a play on the fact that soccer IS so physical.

So...I will repeat what everyone else has said - soccer > golf. It's more physical, more popular (please note, nearly 2 BILLION people watched the world cup final this year, also note that that is more than 20 times the superbowl), and a hell of a lot funner to watch. As for calling another golfer/writer a weenie...I agree with that. You never see a golfer in the weight room.
Also, let's compare injuries and death's on the field...I gurantee soccer has more - do the research for yourself.
Once again, thank you for proving American's ignorance and desire to be different...for no reason. Seriously, congratulations. Too bad you're too lazy to read and respond to everyone against this article and your ridiculous statements. Oh, and soccer players also make a hell of a lot more than tiger...just fyi.

WOW!!! so as one person already said, Tiger could be joking(i doubt it), but this guy was not. YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!! have you ever played soccer? probobly not. so you shouldnt be talking, you know nothing of the sport. and as an athlete, i have played golf, so i can talk, and it is boring, filled with uptight people, takes the same amount of energy as watching tv, and can be won by practecly anyone on any given day. now i will be honest, it may take some skill to line up a shot, but thats using your brain, and the last time i checked your also suposed to do something physical in a sport!!!

What an idiot,

If you really believe that anyone can win on a given day, why don't you and I play for money?

I'll be awaiting your response.

"i have played golf, so i can talk, and it is boring, filled with uptight people, takes the same amount of energy as watching tv, and can be won by practecly anyone on any given day." What An Idiot is as ignorant of the foibles of golf as Baldy is, it appears, of soccer. Golf does take a bit of phsicuality, with the walking and the torque of the swing, along with the mere strength needed to muscle the ball out of the rough. It's funny when guys ramble about on topics about which they know nothing...whooops, don't read my blogs.

I love how so many American's think soccer is some..mini sport. During the world cup all i heard was a mild irritation & ignorance on this..THING getting so muc coverage. I guess it really is cultural?

"Soccer" when played correctly is one of the most physical sports you can play. Its great cardio, requires excellent coordination & concentration. If Tiger doesnt like it thats cool, but his kid could be an international star playing that lowly 'soccer', or football as the rest of us say.

First of all, "soccer" is football. It is the greatest sport in the world when played properly. Unfortunately, it too has been ruined, as drama queens taking dives is now more important than a well constructed rush.

ha ha- i would 'rip' on you and tiger's ignorance, but that would be pointless seeing how i doubt i can come up with something as cold as those below. It is good to have an opinion (for what is a person with out their fancies) but it is not good to insult the subject being scrutinized in the process.

If you couldn't figure it out, the subject now is soccer. i may be a bit biased because this sport is the love of my life, but i find things i like in all sports, even golf. but i suppose all people aren't as well-rounded and respectable as i am.

WHAT'S SO PHYSICAL ABOUT GOLF? You hit a ball with a club. You walk from place-to-place. You pick up the ball from the water. And you even bend over to hit the ball...WOW! NOW THAT'S A PHYSICAL SPORT! Psss...riiiight! SOCCER is 1,000 TIMES MORE PHYSICAL THAN GOLF can ever be in a day, enought said! Your opinion and article are the lamest things that I have ever read so far. Your article and your opinion just prove my point. And that point is that people WHO DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SOCCER and talk shit about it are nothing more than a bunch of clueless idiots who know nothing about this sport, period! And guess what? YOU and TIGER WOODS are ONE of the many outhere in this country! You and Tiger should feel special just like the rest outhere, IDIOTS! And how can you compare us to terrorist when you DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING about this sport? Look, it's OBVIOUS that YOU KNOW NOTHING about this game so you you what? SHUT THE F*CK UP!

you think soccer sucks eh?

then why is it played all around the world?
differences between american football and soccer: soccer has no timeouts;footbal does
we have no ridiculous halftime spectacles, football does; we have no commericial or water breaks, fotball does;no cheerleaders, football does;we only have shin guards, football even has butt pads (wtf)

and if you wanna compare soccer and golf?!
soccer:running for 90 minutes nonstop, all
the players are in shape,you actually have to have power, you arent lazy, most people who play arent rich unlike golf who usually you have to belong to a country club or w/e, and is exciting and thrilling to watch

now golf: most the guys are overweight and hit little balls with sticks, and for once id like to see the guy that does soccer anouncements to do golf , the golf announcers are talking in whispers making everyone go to sleep, soccer announcers actually show emotion(oh my what a concept) anyway, everyone i know(including golf fans) cannot watch golf for more than a couple minutes because it is so dang boring!


watching butterflies is more exciting than golf!

Hey Josh, for your information, golf is way more physical than soccer: You have to bend over to put your ball on the tee, there's getting in the golf cart to get to the next green, um...... getting out of the golf cart..... it's really a demanding sport.

maybe if tiger wasn't so busy choking on the uncircumcised spectre of the sheik of dubai---you know the guy that owns the country that hosts the jan. golf event that tiger will play at the expense of events organized by the tour that made him a billionaire in training--he'd have time to actually watch a game of soccer and realize that far more blood, sweat and tears are expended in one 10-minute stretch than an entire four-day golf tournament.

he's a spoiled, pampered, arrogant idiot that cares about nothing but his own public edification. His much-vanuted charity tournament in december? The purse is $5.7 million, more than nearly every other non-major golf tournament. Not any of that money goes to his learning center, it goes to line the pockets of his equally greedy cohorts.

tiger may be the biggest thing in golf, but he's also its biggest problem.
