You see Dr. S, some of us do and some of us don't. Picking Russell Brand was like my picking VCU and Butler to make the Final Four. I did and you didn't. Tiger ain't been right since Elen went street on him. He often swings like Elen is still running after him - wildly, stumbling, bumbling and without much concentration. Plus Tiger knows most men see him as a girly-boy nowadays for begging his jump-off to erase his number from her phone, paying his jump-on and shake-down queen Gloria Allred a million or two to be quiet, and for letting Elen beat the good golf out of him. Had it been me, I would have told Elen, "Say look a hear baby girl, you don't tell me how to run my life or what to do with my women. You either go with the program or get your clothes and personal items and get out. Leave my chilluns too. Tiger Woods runs the show around here." This is what a real man would have done. I could tell you who is going to win the NBA Championship this year too, but I won't just yet. Once basketball is over I'll be bored to death until football. Watching baseball is like watching lighting-bulbs mate, slow and not much going on, and if something happens it happens so fast you will probably miss it anyway.
