Wizard of Id (4/11/09)


Even though I don’t follow golf, I do know that this weekend’s Masters tournament is the first for Tiger Woods since his return from knee surgery and that some people will judge his comeback based on how he performs. It’s funny that I know so much about Tiger while knowing next to nothing about the rest of the field. Like the short king in this strip, Woods completely overshadows the rest of the PGA tour and at times manages to make the sport exclusively about him. Are there any other athletes who have commanded that much attention at the expense of their contemporaries? Aside from Babe Ruth and Muhammad Ali, probably not.
