Tiger Woods tells Golf Digest that he does not believe he will be a full-time golfer again because of the leg injury he suffered in his car crash earlier this year. "After my back fusion, for me, I had to prove it to myself -- I had to climb Mount Everest one more time. I had to do it, and I did it. This time around, I don't think I'll have the body to climb Mount Everest, and that's OK. But, I can participate in the game of golf. I can still, maybe if my leg gets good enough, maybe [I can] click off a tournament here or there. But, as far as climbing the mountain again and getting all the way to the top, I don't think that's a realistic expectation of me."

It was pretty insane. I realized I had gotten way, way too comfortable in the city. My guard was down… I was all the way at the end of the subway. Innately, I would just go all the way down to the end. I felt somebody coming up. I thought, Oh they want to take a photo or something. As I turned, I’m up against the post like it’s ‘The French Connection’ and I turned. I looked down and I see a knife… I see the person’s eyes, and I’m taken by how young they are. I just started booking, just started running. I jumped over the turnstile, hid around the white, tiled entrance to the subway [and] took my phone out. He jumped over, running away. I took a photo of him. Then I chased him up the stairs. He started running up 7th Avenue. I took two more photographs of him. And then I got back on the subway and picked up my daughter.”

One of my co-workers came into work yesterday and was so excited because she became an aunt over the weekend. She was showing off pictures of her niece. I'm not one to judge, but my co-workers are and made tons of jokes about the baby's looks. I know everyone thinks their baby is adorable, but this one is not. Should I tell my friend and co-worker what others are saying? I think I would want to know?
