Sad story. Rest in Peace Earl.

For those who don't know, Earl is the father of Tiger.

from all I had reas and heard about him, he was a wonderful man. The world has lost a good person today.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

this man single handedly changed the face of recreational sports. some of you know, some of you don't...i work as an assistant golf professional. earl wrote a book a few years back called Training a Tiger. It was all about how he treated tiger when he was growing up. The man was a green beret and instilled that work ethic and discipline in tiger. many parents are following this regimen these days. i can't say that i agree with it. i think it was a miraculous mix of an incredible amount of talent/athletecism and the mindset/determination that tiger possesses. i see some people that i think are too overbearing on their children when it comes to sports. and i think that earl and richard williams (father of venus and serena) are responsible for this new approach to bringing up young athletes. todd marinovich had the same type of upbringing, except he was not mentally stable enough to handle it. to say the least earl was a visionary and a superb father to tiger. but the man had another family that he left and has had no contact with for over 30 years. so he was not the most upstanding person ever, but he was good to tiger. and i respect and admire the man. RIP earl. I hope that tiger can bounce back and have a productive year. I always pull for tiger because you don't come across talent like that very often. I know that earl was instrumental in making tiger who he is, and this will be very devastating to him. win the open for earl, tiger. win it for pop.

We can all hope and pray that cancer is cured soon. It's just a freakish, insidious mutation of your own cells, but it kills. And the S thing about it is that nobody knows why yet.

But they're working on it. Five years from now, maybe ten, cancer treatment will be very different than it is today, and cancer deaths will drop dramatically.

2004 marked the first year that cancer deaths dropped from the previous year. We can only hope that they continue to drop when the 2005 stats come out.

It's almost a 100% guarantee that someone you know will be diagnosed with cancer in your lifetime. Many of those people will not survive if we don't continue to contribute to research. Please do all you can to spare a dime, a quarter, a dollar here or there.
