Tiger Woods scores win in Dubai - just a matter of time until Super Bowl is played there
While the people of Arizona are in an uproar of Super Bowl goodness, waiting to see if the New England Patriots can finish the NFL season as undefeated champions or whether the New Your Giants can pull off a great upset, Tiger Woods is coming home after winning the Dubai Desert Classic.
Well, coming home may be overstating. Like Halliburton and other mega corporations, Woods is more a multinational now than an American, and multinationals don’t concern themselves with borders. They belong to the world, and whoever pays them the most, or gives them the best tax breaks.
Which leads to my main Super Bowl prediction - within a decade, the Super Bowl will be held in Dubai. Or whichever other nation bids the most for it. Because the NFL, and more or less every other major sporting league in the world these days, is no different than Tiger Woods, or multinational corporations - they go where the money goes.
So here’s here’s hoping those who’ve made their way to Phoenix enjoy Super Bowl Sunday. And here’s hoping the Super Bowl stays in a U.S. city for the foreseeable future. But it doesn’t take a psychic to see that if an oil-rich nation pays enough for the NFL’s biggest game, the NFL wouldn’t think twice about going there. If their money’s good enough for Tiger Woods and Dick Cheney’s old company, it will be good enough for the NFL.
