    Yep, here it comes from my local sports station before they go to the ad before the sports segment..."Tiger makes a run today at the Master's, but will it be enough?" (while showing a highlight of him making one of his birdies and then punching his arm in the air while kicking his right leg out) all under the headline of "Tiger's Run"[​IMG]

    Was that a White women that Jason Day stole? I saw her several months ago and she looked "non-descript".. but, I feel now that she's White. [​IMG]

    At least Schwartzel was PURE UNBRIDLED STEEL. Other than him or Adam Scott, I wouldn't have minded if former-powerlifer K.J. choi had won. He has some STEEL in him, too.

    Rory McIlroy blew up and shot an 80 today, but handled himself like a true champ afterwards with the media. Tiger Woods would have been smashing clubs into the hallowed ground of Augusta, cursing and ignoring the media had it happened to him. Makes me proud to see the young White players continue golf's tradition of conducting themselves with class.

    I wonder if Charl was thinking of Mandela as he was walking down the 18th fairway? Didn't the golf marxists pull that out last time a south african won a major? I remember they went on about how the guy was thinking about all of the wonderful changes in their home country blah blah blah, you know the ones? where all the white people have to leave or get ethnically cleansed while all of the other white people in the world are worried whether black people are comfortable or not?

    I noticed Jason Day's female partner. These ethnic european women seem to have about zero loyalty to men of their own ethnicity. These women will hookup with whichever man has the money. Just another traitor.

    Congrats to Schwartzel for a superb victory! Those final 4 holes is how a champion should come thru and get the win.

    Also, I caught a little segment in ESPN this evening, when despicable ass-clown Rick Reilly joined the duo of Van Pelt and North to talk about how "frustrating" it was that Tiger was so close and could not get the win. "If only he could play like we know he can, he'll finally end that 17-month winless drought" said Reilly, no doubt in a world of pain because he couldn't join dozens of other sports writers in finally writing the column that Tiger is back.

    It was close today for sure, and I was afraid a choke-job by the rest of the field could hand him another Masters. Luckily, the field came thru this time. I hope with each Major that he doesn't win, Tiger's confidence continues to sink, while the opposite happens for the competition.

    Woods played a great front nine, but it's not a stretch to say that he was the one who choked a bit on the back ninewhile his competition stepped it up. He missed an easy putt on 12 for a bogey that really slowed his momentum, made a poor approachiron shot on the par 5 13th that led to a par ona must birdie hole, then made a spectacular second shot on the par 5 15th but missed the eagle putt, which was just outside of tap-in range. If he had posted -12 or -13 instead of -10 he could easily have changed the dynamics of what the players after him were doing and maybe gotten into a playoff if not won outright, but it was clear -10 wasn't going to scare thegaggleof players who wereat -9 to -11when Woods posted his score asmost still had the two relatively easy par 5s to play.

    I wasn't aware that Jason Day wasn't full blooded white. I see on his Wiki page that he is half Filipino.

    IMO, the Masters is the most important Major. Golfers, including a "washed-out" Tiger, can make runs because the course isn't particularly difficult. This will likely be the case in future years as well.

    I feel Tiger will win at least one Major this year. His short-game will not always be this dreadful.. certainly unbecoming of a "God."

    Very exciting Masters. Tiger's front nine charge was fool's gold. All the fist pumping was premature hype. There were too many good players even or ahead of Woods that still had all the scoring chances.

    Yes, I'm sure it was "frustrating" for these "White" "men" seeing just how close Tiger was in winning...sexually frustrating.

    Some columnists wrote that this means that "Tiger is back."

    This doesn't mean that Tiger is "back" IMHO, it just means that Tiger knows
    this course inside out and he will probably always play good at Augusta. Even last year he
    "almost" pulled off the win at the Masters yet he failed to do anything
    after being "back" then...

    On Sunday, the fraudulent "Remorseful Tiger"Â￾ persona was axed in favor of vintage "Thug Tiger."Â￾ The infantile fist pumping, the boorish cursing (he once screamed out "F-ck Yeah!"Â￾ after a routine birdie put), the attention-starved overreaction of every bad shot, the obnoxious hand-slapping with his wigger caddie, the feigned "furrowed brow"Â￾ when frustrated, the trademark watermelon grin (complete with yellowed front tooth) during moments of triumph, the giggling, the constant spitting, the club dropping when perturbed, the complete disregard (borderline disdain) for the euphoric, all-white TigerCentric galleries praying for their hero to return to greatness, etc.

    CBS's 2011 Masters coverage team swooned with girlish love-sickness whenever a kinky black hair became slightly out of place on the balding scalp of "God's Gift to Prostitutes,"Â￾ anti-hero Tiger Woods. Even when eight other players were ahead of him, or when he was five strokes off the lead, everything was always put into its proper "Tiger Context."Â￾

    While CBS was airing live play, as well as previously recorded footage of their corn-toothed savior taking every single shot on the course (no matter how insignificant), critical shots by Schwartzel, Day, Scott, Donald, Ogilvy, Cabrera and Van Pelt were ignored. After the conclusion of his round, Asian-Australian Jason Day (who tied for second place) was interviewed"¦concerning what he thought about "Tiger's performance."Â￾

    On Saturday and Sunday, the gallery supported Tiger as if it were his "pre-scandal"Â￾ days. As the months pass, the absentminded white invertebrates slowly raise Woods to his previous "black deity"Â￾ stratum.

    My relatives, who don't normally watch golf and are not exactly racially-minded, were disgusted by the wild cheering for Tiger.

    I noticed that ALL the other main competitors - the Aussies, McIlroy, Cabrera, Choi, and, of course, Schwartzel, kept smiles on their faces and displayed good sportsmanship whether they were on top or had fallen back of the leaders.

    I will say that while the coverage of Woods was over the top and rabid, it wasn't quite as rabid as I thought it might get. I agree with JReb that Augusta is the course he is most comfortable on so it's premature to say he's "back" when hecontended last year at The Masters in what was his first tourament since his then-wife bashed him with a 9 iron.



    As far as his behavior it's changed very little. A few more cold-eyed acknowledgements of the galleries, slightly less swearing, club throwing and farting, but he's still the same surly, pampered prima donna he's always been.Edited by: Don Wassall

    Rick Reilly does not disappoint:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=6328143

    After his Jimmer hit piece, he's clearly on a roll. Notice that in the second paragraph, the only time the 2011 Masters winner is mentioned, each sentence is basically an insult of Schwartzel. Way to go Rick, you've outdone yourself with this Tiger worship piece, releasing some of your sexual frustrations in the process.

    Tiger Woods, Almost There

    AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Sure, it was a Masters Sunday when you needed a defibrillator next to the couch, but in the end, what did we wind up with?

    We got a green jacket being hung on the bony shoulders of 140-pound Charl Schwartzel, and who knows if we'll ever see HIM again. He seems like a work in progress. Even his first name is unfinished.

    This is the 10th different winner in the past 10 majors. It's like golf is running some kind of contest. Hey, you. You just won the Masters.

    Tiger, please come back. The game misses you. [​IMG]

    What kills you is he was right there. He had it. He did all the hard work and messed up the easy stuff. He shot his lowest Sunday round ever at the Masters, 67, and still didn't jacket. He crushed all the elephants and got stampeded by the squirrels.

    He did all the hard work and messed up the easy stuff. ... He crushed all the elephants and got stampeded by the squirrels.

    Sunday started with Tiger Woods 7 back. "What was the use?" you thought. He hadn't won any of his 14 majors from even 1 stroke back, much less 7. This was setting up as just another Sunday walk at a major straight back to the jet and home to that big empty house in Orlando.

    It was going to be 17 months now since he'd won, the longest nuclear winter in his professional career. It was going to be 11 straight majors without winning one. Almost three years of majorless minorness.

    But suddenly, things stopped making sense.

    Suddenly, Woods was Arnie at Cherry Hills, 1960, charging from 7 back. He turned the front in a delicious 31 and young kids like Rory McIlroy were seeing him in the rearview mirror and driving into cabins.

    He was splitting every fairway (six of the first six). He hit irons like you diagram them on the course map. (He hit eight of the first eight greens.) He made birdies at 2 and 3, a bogey at 4, but then a birdie at 7, that ear-splitting eagle at 8, and a par saved out of both straw and sand on 9.

    For the first time since the 2007 Masters, Woods had a chunk of the lead.

    Just then somebody hollered out "You're a legend, Tiger!" Trying, buddy. Trying.

    He dropped a perfect (read: safe) shot onto the 12th, the Lindsay Lohan of golf holes -- short, drop-dead gorgeous and hellatrouble. And what does he do? Three-putts it. That's the easiest green to putt on the whole course!

    He comes to the easy par-5 13th and doesn't birdie it for the first time in his past 10 tries. What are the odds? He strikes one of the most goosebump-perfect 6-irons in his life on 15 to within the length of a felled parking meter, and then blows it. It's like climbing Mount Everest and then falling while taking the picture.

    He tapped in the miss for a birdie there and a share of the lead again and yet he looked like a guy whose cat just shot his dog. Had to be the most glum leader of the Masters in history.

    He hits a Mozart shot at 16, and misses the putt. From there, he slumped home.

    First thing he did is take his frustration out on CBS interviewer Bill Macatee.

    Macatee: Do you feel like you played well enough to win?

    TW: Right now, I'm 1 back. Let's see what happens."

    Macatee: Do you feel like you're back in the thick of things now?

    TW: I'm 1 back, let's see what happens.

    You half expected the next exchange to be:

    Macatee: Have you ever eaten a live turtle while skydiving?

    Tw: I'm 1 back, let's see what happens.

    "I should have easily shot 3 or 4 under on the back nine," he finally told a group of reporters afterward, bathed in sweat. "I was right there in the thick of it."

    At this point in his comeback, he's doing everything great, except interviews and putting, which he seems to be doing with a fettucini noodle. Six 3-putts. One hundred twenty putts for the whole week. Sometimes, Steve Stricker will go TWO weeks without that many putts.

    These were tiddlers he missed. The one at 15 he missed Saturday was no longer than a baby's arm. The one at 12 Sunday was just slightly longer than a roll of quarters.

    If I didn't know better, I'd say all this TMZ and divorce and watching millions circle the drain is giving him a case of "¦ (whisper this part) "¦ the yips.

    If not, then he really is close now. What the country will do when he wins -- which is going to be soon -- who knows? America will forgive anything if it comes with a big sparkly trophy.

    The scoreboard will say that Tiger Woods is still trapped in the longest losing streak of his pro career. He's still handcuffed without a major since the summer of '08.

    But at least on this one Sunday in Augusta, he seemed almost free.

    Yeah, if you're not a steroid monkey you're not a real athlete.

    Even his first name is unfinished.

    Reilly thinks Akrikaner names are funny but probably thinks "LaShawn" is perfectly normal.

    Reilly basically came-out-of-the-closet on this piece, for all to see. Straight White men should now feel safe if in the same room with him but White men with alternative lifestyles may feel disappointed, as he obviously has a racial preference that they weren't born with. Tough luck.

    If Schwartzel had been a 140 lb. black South African the tenor of the piece would have entirely different.

    Reilly would have spun his victory as being one of the most awesome, inspiring, heart warming spectacles in the history of sports.

    Wouldn't the fact that Charl Schwartzel is a "nobody,"Â￾ has an "unfinished name,"Â￾ a "bony"Â￾ physique, and weighs "140 lbs"Â￾ make the bronzed Anti-Hero's loss that much more pathetic? I heard that the legendary Jew-wussy, Mike Greenberg of "Mike and K-ke in the Morning"Â￾ was even mocking Schwartzel (who is 5'-11"Â￾, by the way).


    The international competition (white European, white South African, Japanese, and Korean) is better than ever before. Reilly's yearning for his aging, spitting, club-throwing, surly, corn-toothed, unfaithful, conceited, multi-billionaire prostitute-addict to return to greatness will go unfulfilled. Poor little Ricky.


    What "kills"Â￾ you? Yes, it certainly "kills"Â￾ me to see the world's only "billion dollar athlete"Â￾ and one of this planet's most odious pricks falter during a meaningless sporting event"¦yet again. Kids with leukemia aren't nearly a depressing as this "tragedy."Â￾

    Lindsey Lohan is "drop-dead gorgeous?"Â￾ Gaylords always have terrible taste in "women"Â￾"¦they always seem to find the "twelve year old boy"Â￾ type chicks to be "beautiful."Â￾ I wonder why? It's difficult to fathom how this sort of tripe now passes for "professional writing."Â￾

    The tanned "Lord of Hosts"Â￾ was in contention at the 2010 Masters (placing 4th)"¦he looked terrible the remainder of the year. And yes, thanks to Jew-sponsored living-hemorrhoids such as yourself, the white masses have already forgotten.

    I just emailed my comments to Reilly, along with this picture of Reilly's future mother-in-law (after gay marriage has become legal)...[​IMG]Edited by: Thrashen

    Reilly is one of the very worst jock sniffers I've ever seen. Which means, of course, that he has a bright future in "journalism."

    The better man won, fair and square.

    Didn't this "journalist" learn anything about sportsmanship?

    Shaking hands after giving the game your best shot is basic character you learn in primary school and before.

    Bashing the winner because the whiner's [wished for] boyfriend couldn't beat him is...

    ... like when these same people bashed Duke in '10, bashed both Klitschko's from 1998 to present, preemtively rags on Christope Lemaire, bashed Joe Calzaghe for turning Roy Jones Jr. into a garden burger... etc.

    Hey, Reilly, tell it to the White South African's face, why don't you?

    At only "140 pounds", he can't be too threatening, right?

    People like this LOVE to talk, Talk, TALK. They're no better than gossipy chicks, except with girls it's normal and expected and even at times endearing because they're WOMEN.

    When "men" do it, it's just sad, disgusting, and wrong.

    Sadly, the world is coming to see such degenerate, characterless, classless behavior as the norm, and dignity, respect for your opponent, and the spirit of honest competition where anyone on the field can win with his own to hands, legs, feet, heart -- AND MIND -- are falling to the wayside.
