Kukla's Korner Hockey

From the AP via International Herald Tribune:
The world’s top golfer appeared via teleconference on Monday, promoting August’s PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit. Woods was asked if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh.
Woods started to laugh, then landed a zinger.
“I don’t really care. Let’s talk about the Dodgers,” the California native said. “I don’t think anybody really watches hockey any more.”
Charming, Tiger. And you don’t want to get me started on my opinion of televised golf—but fortunately, the NHL’s Frank Brown responded with a lot more class than I would have:
“The National Hockey League has enormous respect for Tiger Woods, for all his accomplishments and for his work with the community. We think he’s a great golfer.”
