Tiger Who?

This is the first time I've actually sat down to weigh in on ESPN's "Who's Now" bracket, because to me, it is a no brainer.

Shaq is the "Diesel", but that engine has a lot of miles on it. Tom Brady is already HOF material, but his head wear is in flux. Jeter is the Yankees, but he is a Yankee. Lebron is the "King," but he'll be "Who's Next". A-Rod has the hot wife, but he is supposedly not quite a Yankee. Peyton won his Super Bowl, but he couldn't beat the Gators, and they vote in this thing. L.T. is a great running back, but he is not the face of the NFL.

Which leads us to TIGER.

He is only a third of the way through his career. His head wear is his own brand (with the same company as His Airness). He is golf, ranked first in the world for the past 110+ weeks. He is the guy you don't want to face in the last group on Sunday, or the finals of anything. He is the guy that has made golf soar in ratings, revenue, and participation. His wife - who doesn't think she is hot? His picture is worth a thousand words, but more likely a couple million dollars. He can sell Buicks...enough said!

Here's how it looks:

MICHAEL JORDAN REGION (1) Tiger Woods v. (2) LaDainian Tomlinson
MUHAMMAD ALI REGION (1) Peyton Manning v. (2) Alex Rodriguez
BILLIE JEAN KING REGION (1) LeBron James v. (2) Derek Jeter
BABE RUTH REGION (1) Tom Brady v. (3) Shaquille O'Neal

Jordan winner vs. Ali winner

King winner vs. Ruth winner
