Tiger annouces return to golf

Posted in Pop culture, Tough Shit with tags , on March 16, 2010 by gvcatullus

Tiger Woods came out of hiding today to declare his return to the game that made him famous. Golf.com reports:
“The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.

The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played.

I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.”

When asked for comment, Phil Mickelson responded, “Well, I might not be number one golfer in 2010 as I pledged during my Thanskgiving toast, but i have updated my 2010 to-do list to include Ambien sex with no less than 17 whores, picking up Accenture and AT&T as sponsors and rethinking my driver strategy at Winged Foot.”

Mike Tyson and Animal Planet are teaming up to bring the world “Taking on Tyson” about Mike Tyson’s newest hobby, pigeon racing. I wish the former champ well, though if Ozzy Osbourne is ever on the show as a challenger, I don’t think I will be tuning in.

Lost Boys Sequel Cancelled

Posted in 80's, Pop culture, Tough Shit on March 10, 2010 by gvcatullus

Corey Haim was found dead this morning of an apparent drug overdose in his Oakwood, California apartment.

EW reports: “Actor Corey Haim, 38, is dead after an accidental drug overdose. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed that Haim, who battled substance addiction for several years, was found unresponsive in an Oakwood apartment and pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center at 2:15 a.m. this morning.”

This is sad, but not shocking news. He had been fired from several films for unprofessional conduct directly related to drug use. Instead of making a sob-filled tribute (sponsored by Riger Beat) they should make at risk stars *cough Lohan, Winehouse cough* act as pallbearers to scare them into avoiding a similar fate.

While looking for nebbish, I saw “turd sandwich” and “die in a fire”.  With the internet as a focus group, I guess he has his work cut out for him.
