Sports Illustrated doesn't find Tiger Woods fun to watch
Over at Sports Illustrated, they love nothing better than accumulating a bunch of photos, giving it all a topic, and then presenting it as a colorful photo gallery. Today’s photo gallery is of the “Most Fun Athletes to Watch.”
Generally these photo galleries don’t teach us much, but do showcase some nice photographs. This particular photo gallery teaches us something, however - SI doesn’t find Tiger Woods very fun to watch. SI features 32 “fun-to-watch” athletes, and even with the U.S. Open about to tee off, not one of them is named Tiger.
Other athletes that SI find more fun to watch than Tiger: Carl Edwards, Earl Boykins, Diana Taurasi, Marco “Get this Zidane forehead off my chest” Materazzi, Martin St. Louis, Carolina Kluft, and Steven Lopez (Taekwondo).
So, while SI finds it more fun to watch Swedes high jump or Americans Taekwondi (or whatever the verb for that would be), golf fans, and most general sports fans know the truth.
Just look at TV ratings when Woods is playing, and you’ll see that most of us find him fun to watch. And with 12 majors and 57 PGA Tour victories to his name, Woods holds the one quality that is always entertaining to witness - greatness.
So check back over at SI on Monday. We’ll see if they find Tiger Woods fun to watch after he’s taken home his 13th major.

Enthralling, exhilarating, enchanting, exasperating, but never fun. That's Tiger Woods. Mr. boring, the surgeon, the Tell-Tale Heart-napper.
