You can always tell when a sportswriter has become a little too close to his subject.

It’s when he pens a list of good and bad things about Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf and writes of his PR people:

“They finally got something right, making an early announcement to short-circuit the rampant speculation and give the world time to prepare”

The world?

I wouldn’t be so naive as to assume there are still millions of people out there who’ve never heard of Woods but I suspect the number of those who give a damn about anything he says, thinks or does, even before the events of last Thanksgiving, is considerably smaller than that imagined by the author of this drivel.

Take a holiday, Alan Shipnuck. And if you’d like to find out what really makes the world hold its breath, Google ‘Afghanistan’ or ‘Haiti’.
