THE LIBRARY OF CONTEMPORARY THOUGHT
"The Masters elevated Tiger Woods to a level of fame that perhaps no athlete outside of Muhammed Ali had ever achieved. People who knew absolutely nothing about golf, cared not at all about the sport, stopped to watch Tiger play. . . . He signed endorsement contracts for staggering amounts of money. He blew off the president of the United States and Rachel Robinson, the widow of the century's most important athlete--and made no apologies for it. He didn't have to. He was Tiger. They weren't."
--from The First Coming
From the Trade Paperback edition.
This book really provides great insight to Tiger and "his world". I heard John Feinstein on Sirius and a brief view of his opinions on Tiger. I am glad not everyone cow tows to Tiger and realizes that no one person is bigger than any game.
After his great downfall I would be interested in the way that Tiger is once again looking to be part of the 156 players each week.
Once you set yourself up as the messiah it is very difficult to go anywhere but down. Being one of 156 may not be too bad.
