Tiger and His Knee

So, Mike Milbury was legitimately upset after Tiger dissed hockey and, as you see in the clip below, called him Tiger Wuss for taking so long to recover from simple arthroscopic knee surgery.


Much like in hockey, it seems Tiger was hiding some much more serious damage to his "lower body". Tiger revealed yesterday that "he has been playing for at least 10 months with a torn ligament in his left knee, and that he suffered a double stress fracture in his left leg two weeks before the U.S. Open. He said he will have season-ending surgery."

I don't care how much or how little respect someone has for the sport of Golf, but everyone has to recognize that these are serious injuries. To be able to precisely swing a club at the speed that Tiger does for 5 straight days withe pressure of playing a major championship tournament is nothing short of amazing.

We now know that this was a display of toughness and tenacity at a level that is rare in any sport.

All that needs to be done now is to tell Tiger to use his time off to learn more about hockey and its players. They are, as a whole, the toughest athletes in sports.
