My Wife Breaks Tiger Baby News to Me

HOW DID YOU HEAR about the birth of Charlie Axel Woods? My wife told me. That’s right, my wife. It’s a perfect reminder of the enormity of Tiger Woods.

“Oh,” she said this morning while I was sipping my first cup of coffee. “Did you hear that Tiger and his wife had their baby? It’s a boy.”

My wife knows a few things about golf through ARMCHAIR GOLF osmosis, but most of it escapes her like a bad slice in a crossing wind. But she knew about the birth of Tiger’s second child. Before me. (Not that I have a problem with that.)

It does makes me wonder how many people on the planet who know little or nothing about golf know that Tiger Woods is now the proud father of a baby boy. I’m going to take a wild stab and say 3.1 billion.

The legend just keeps growing.

Looks to me like your wife needs a regular gig here at least once a month, since she scooped you. ;-)

I was wondering when you were going to post something.

It is pretty awesome. I've been thinking in 20 years we could see Tiger, Axel, and Sam Alexis in the same pairing. You never know.

Good idea, Tom. Maybe I can lure my wife into a regular gig. But she would turn me down. It was a fun thought -- for about two seconds.
