Two things:

1) Today we've posted about perhaps the world's two greatest fornicators: Smarty Jones and Tiger Woods. And if there's anyone who can figure out a way to become the real life equivalent of Smarty Jones, it's Tiger Woods. Sooo… it all ties together.

2) This was perhaps the greatest don't ask me about this press conference move of all time… and it backfired.

Woods is in Philly today to promote the upcoming AT&T Classic at Aronimink. About an hour before his nationally televised press conference, he Tweeted that he would donate $1 million to his charity, the Tiger Woods Foundation, if no one asked him about his leg.

First question:

Tiger, how you doin? Um, first question, how you feelin'? How's your health today as opposed to a week ago or two weeks ago?

 

Way to go, asshole.

I can see Michael Richards adopting this style of post-game presser: If Tim Panaccio doesn't ask me an inane question about "bouncing back," I'll send a pallet of Rednex to inner city youths.

Audio and video after the jump.

UPDATE: Tiger will rightfully donate the money, anyway.

    “Today we’ve posted about perhaps the world’s two greatest fornicators”
    Correction: “Today we’ve posted about perhaps the world’s two of the three greatest fornicators.”
    And in case you didn’t know, yours truly would be the #1 Shagmeister.
    And someone should tell wee little Eldrick that if he wants trim who would stay on the QT (and cheaper too), he should have hung out behind the Wawful House instead of the more fancy Perkins.
