Tiger, Tiger, Tiger...augh. I cannot stand the amount of coverage there is for his return. Yes I get it, he is the best golfer in the world and is back, but the coverage has gotten to the point that they are not reporting on anything else. I am struggling to find a story on espn.com or even pga.com that actually mentions, oh by the way, 2 of the 4 #1 seeds in the WGC Championship lost in the first round! I wish they could find some kind of balance.
This happens in sports. I'm not a golf fan, but try being an IndyCar fan in 2005. They never shut up about Danica Patrick.
Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500, but was the second person to be interviewed after the race because ABC had to interview Danica, who finished fourth. They did all they could to shove her down your throat. Even if she was 4 laps down in 15th spot, you'd still get an update every few minutes & after the race as to where she was.
Danicamania let up after 2005, but reared its ugly head again after she won a race last year. ESPN thoroughly enjoyed demoting the last 10 minutes of the Long Beach GP
to a small window as ESPN went picture-in-picture and talked to her about her win in the bigger window. There was a RACE on, it was coming up on the FINISH, yet they just had to get that interview in.
More recently, ESPN has drooled over NASCAR rookie Joey Logano. With one major race (a Nationwide Series race, like AAA baseball) under his belt & no races in the top division, he was crowned "NASCAR's Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan". This is having never raced most of the top drivers in the sport.
