Woods comeback not making scalpers rich

Frankly, I'm a tad surprised.

Sure, the economy is in the tank. Yeah, perhaps folks are turned off by the notion of watching Tiger Woods do anything at the moment, especially if it costs them money. But still, what would you guess that first-round tickets to the Masters are commanding on the open market?

Remember, Masters ducats are supposedly the toughest to land in all of sports.

The magic number, as of Tuesday evening, is $687 apiece -- subject to the daily caprices of supply and demand, of course. A Friday ticket can be purchased for $601. A four-day badge, available from an online broker called Ticket City, are available from $2,236.

All in all, I would have assumed that, given the incredible buildup and anticipated TV ratings for Woods' first competitive event in 144 days, demand would have been far greater.

Woods comeback not making scalpers rich

You sound like you don't know what the hell you are talking about buckeye!  And when you start off by saying "yo shut the fu*k up", it makes everyone either think you are either a certain race, or you are someone that hasn't come to realize that your YO hero, Tiger, is not a very good person.  Sure he is a fantastic golfer, but if you want i'll bet you any amount of money that you don't have if you want to take Tiger as your man to win it all.  He won't even make the cut.  Sorry! Tiger doesn't have to be any races hero.  As I seem to remember, he doesn't seem to claim being 100% Black (and its OBVIOUS that he isn't), or even speak much about his Black roots, so when you say "it makes everyone think you are are a certain race...", what race exactly are YOU alluding to?  Asian?  Thai?  Chinese?  Korean?  Just come out and say it and don't hide behind the internet.  If you want to stereotype people who post to these message boards, I'd like to know what kind of person you think you are.  Are YOU someone's hero?  Does someone worship you for being a bigot, because that's EXACTLY what you are doing when you characterize people simply based on a posting, along your poor attempt at language mockery.

I will give you credit for one thing though...  Woods IS a fantastic golfer.  What his personal life has to do with his ability to remain one of the Worlds best is beyond me.  Before his life turned upside down, you probably hated him because of his arrogance and stand offishness.  Now you simply hate him because you feel he's given you the reason to do so.  Based on that, I bet you have a lot of names on some dry erase board somewhere.  I'm actually surprised you have the time to post in-between boycotting "Fallen Heroes".....

Jamie Jungers dancin' on bars, Tiger makin' pars!

I heard that one of Tiger's nightowl man juice drops, Jamie Jungers, is going to be "in the rough" April 8th-10th in Hot-lanta. She'll be dancin' nude on bars while Tiger is making pars. I wonder if she'll be using "Woods" or "Irons". Wow. That was aggressive. Wow.

You really have a way with words.  Where did you attend school?  And that punctuation!  Amazing.  I think it's your incredible insight that caught me.  People like you shouldn't be allowed on the internet.  Why don't you leave that up to us adults and go back to your XBox or whatever you do with the incredible amount of time you have.

yo shut the fu*k up, Els sucks at Augusta he hasn't made the cut since 2006, and has not finished in the top 10 since '04. Your just mad because Tiger's count is way higher in the past 5 years than yours is in your entire lifetime. Get over it, Woods will win, Ernie although he is playing much better will probably even crack the top 10, but most certainly will not be much of a factor on the weekend while Tiger is running away with it, and your first comment about one for ever hole at Augusta, pretty sure most golf courses have 18 holes so it would be alot easier if you just said one for every hole on a golf course. PUS*Y

The last count on Tiger is 15 - the only question is whether he can pcik up three more so he could have one for every hole at Augusta.

Jack Nichlaus and Ernie Els - now that is class - Tiger ~~~~~~~~

It would be nice to see Els win the Masters
