At least one good thing could come out of Tiger Woods’ injury: sponsor exemptions for John Daly. If golfers such as Stewart Cink continue to win tournaments, television ratings will continue to sink. Daly might be struggling, but he is still among the sport’s biggest draws.
Free John! But make him wear a shirt.
I can’t tell you the best movie I’ve seen this summer because I have yet to go to a theater. But I’ve read four books the last three weeks, and the best of them is “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. The narrator is a dog. Dogs know more than we think and this proves it. The book is warm and funny and there’s a quiet power to it.
I cried. I can’t fathom caring enough about a sporting event, not now, not at my age, to cry.
And that’s good.
