Ps. Explain the bet to me though as I am wager challenged.

If Tiger (Me) wins the grand slam, (quite possibly) THE hardest thing in all of sports. I get a sleeve of balls.

If the field (you) wins I have to pay 100 dollars to go see Cannibal Corpse/Cryptopsy/Darkthrone/Deicide/Dismember?

Something seems outta' whack daddy-o.


ok, point #1,  it was a bit late and intoxicated when i typed that.  I meant a BOX of balls, to begin with.
and #2, those shows wouldn't come close to costing $100 (well maybe if you're in the boonies and gasoline... but hey, that's life!)
more like $20-$30

so the overall payoff odds are likely somewhere between  1:1 and 2:1  depending on the exact ticket price and the type of balls you want and blah blah.     seems fair to me since he's so great and has it locked up

My biggest problem with Tiger is hardly Tiger's fault. Even when he's running in the middle of the pack, he commands a grossly disproportionate amount of air-time and fawning commentary. Hell, even when he's not playing they still spend a lot of time talking about him. Of course I realize that some huge percentage of casual golf viewers tune in just to see what/how Tiger's doing so the broadcast team is simply giving their viewers what they want. Like I say, it's not really Tiger's fault.

That being said, dude's a remarkable talent and amazing to watch, particularly when he's shooting lights out. I still prefer to see a competitive match rather than watching the rest of the pack battle for a distant 2nd place. Again, though, Tiger just goes out and does what he does, it's not his fault when no one stands up to him.

Well stated. We are watching history in the making but the media coverage is well over the top.

 Shocked

The fact that his every move is captured (cue the overmediasaturation of which I agree) has to factor in. It's one argument I just don't buy as I submit he is no different than most. And not even close to being considered an a-hole. Just my opinion.

And somehow I just knew his being wealthy grated on you.   Devil Wink Smiley  Don't you at least have to give some grudging respect for the work he's put in to make his money? He definitely was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

I might point out, then, that your problem isn't with Tiger at all, but with the networks.

Putting aside the fans who only watch golf on TV to see Tiger Woods (is that even such a high percentage of the total?), the Number 1 player in the world having the wheels come off is news, too.  Same happened with Palmer, Nicklaus, Watson, ...

I guess I'm more wager challenged than I thought, but let me type this out so I can see it in writing. Over the course of the 4 major tournaments I'm giving you approximately 560 players (155 x 3 majors/ + approx. 90-100 at the Masters)) to beat my one guy. 560/1 and the best odds you can give me is even money?

How about if you win, Dystopia has to take 10,000 posts away from Aske and give them to you.
Can't do that, that's just not fair to the good Dr., he's worked hard getting those posts so high and I couldn't/wouldn't want to be the reason his posts were removed, especially over a silly bet.

This isn't about money, and this isn't about golf balls, and it's not about going to see Deicide or The Crypt Kicker 5, or whatever.

If I win I want you dressed in a Seahawk jersey that I will provide (to be returned) and I want you in a Nike TW Cap that you will purchase, and I want you holding an "I Love Tiger Woods Sign" and I want a good picture, no fingers, no silly faces, no devil horns, I want you smiling.

If I lose I will go see whatever Death Metal band hits Seattle this year, or you may come up with another counter offer.

Tiger can eat my fat one as far as I'm concerned!!!

He has yet to win in all parts of the World, such as Plamer, Nicklaus, Watson, Player, Norman and Els.

Of the current era at least Ernie makes an effort to come down here regularly, other than for the Presidents Cup a few years back.

Tiger played a tournament here once and was beaten by the course and hasn't been back since!!

As for Phil, that tubby bitch wouldn't have a clue where Australia is.

I'd also be prepared to tip the field vs Tiger winning the Grand Slam.
