The Masters is on ESPN and CBS. But I'm sure Golf Channel will have lots of fine coverage.

So now the question is:

Do you hope he wins at Augusta?

Or do you hope he stinks up the course in his return?

My father gets to go to some portion of the Masters tourney every year, and he was very stoked when I gave him the Tiger news. I don't get why my father isn't at all fazed by Tiger's indiscretions.

Tiger made a very shrewd move by coming back to Augusta first. The gallery really cannot get away with heckling him for fear of losing their "membership" to the Masters if you will, so I suspect that Tiger will avoid the catcalls that would have welcomed him on almost every other course in America (I would have loved to hear the reaction from fans at say Bethpage Black).

I personally hope that he plays well. As always, I hope that my boy Phil M. beats him.

My grandfather was in the Air Force in the '60s. In fact, my mother was born on Walker Air Force Base near Roswell, NM, in 1961. My grandparents divorced (or at least lived separately) by the late 60s. Anyway my point is that my grandma said that it was common knowledge that a good portion of the soldiers were sleeping around. I think maybe older people might be more accepting of it.

None of this stuff fazes me either. As a golf fan, my relationship with Tiger is from Thurs-Sun during the tournaments in which he plays.

We're heavy into the gossip saturation these days, but I really try to ignore the off-course stuff. It's not always possible - I think my wife and I have had more arguments about Tiger than any other single topic since we've been married.

I'm thrilled he'll be back at the Masters and I hope it's an exciting a tournament as it usually is.

Bad: ESPN/CBS will follow Tiger even more obsessively than usual while ignoring action from the other players.

Good: The unintentional humor factor as the announcers have to fill all this time while barely (or possibly not at all) mentioning the elephant in the room. Both as not to piss off Tiger or Augusta chairman Billy Payne.

Prediction: Tiger makes the cut, but never seriously challenges for the title. Something like 20th place.

I think the real questions are ...Will the media forgive him if he plays well or will they boo him regardless of how well or not well he plays?

I don't think the media is allowed to boo players. I'm assuming you mean the media forgiving him and the fans possibly booing him?

The media is still mad because they can't get dig their claws into Tiger. He's controlling access and limiting what they can ask. They want to be jackyls and he won't let them be jackyls.

It's a simple story - Tiger is a great golfer and has been lousy at monogamy. Tiger is trying to make amends (at least in the public eye), but until every reporter gets to ask every question for the "Nth" time, they won't be satisfied that Tiger has properly paid his dues.

Is Skip Bayless a part of the media? Because he always seems to be figuratively booing people.

Skip Bayless is a barnacle on the immensely-talented Rick Bayless's good name.

I won't be cheering for Tiger any more or less than I usually do. When watching the majors, I usually root for the best story --- a young guy breaking out, an internationally significant victory (i.e. Y.E. Yang or Angel Cabrera), a old-timer trying to get one more (Tom Watson's near-miss at the British last year) or just a notable golfer who seems like a nice guy and could use another major to add to his legacy (i.e. Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington). If Tiger is in contending against a bunch of bland golfers or Phil, I'll still root for Tiger any time. But if Tiger is going up against someone with a more interesting story, I'll root for the underdog.

Pretty good race today at Daytona. Really Cool wrecks especially the ending with Bowyer crossing the finish line upside down. NASCAR continues their streak of denying Roush Racing/Mark Martin a win at Daytona. R.C.R. looks like the team to beat this year....
