"Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" (or Pretty in Pink)

Tiger Woods beware: Its the dawning of the age of.... well, this guy!



(and, no we didn't photoshop that photo)

Britain's Ian Poulter has, despite no PGA tour victories ever, announced that this year "Only I can challenge Tiger's supremacy"

Go on sir!

"Don't get me wrong, I really respect every professional golfer, but I know I haven't played to my full potential and when that happens, it will be just me and Tiger."

The Englishman, asked by the magazine to predict the winner of the first major of the season at the U.S. Masters in April, replied: "Put Tiger down for that one".

For the year's second major at the U.S. Open, he said: "You can put me down for that one".

Besides dissing all other pro golfers including the 21 others with higher world rankings than himself, Ian took a special shot at Ole Lefty (Phil Mickelson):

"Tiger is one in 10 million. "He is extraordinary. If you look at the rankings he is almost two and a half times better than the guy in second place."


Nicely done sir, Kudos to you.

UPDATE: Now, probably after seeing this blogpost, Mr. Poulter is (like Charles Barkely in his "autobiography"), claiming that he's been misunderstood, "The whole answer to the question has been taken out of context," he said.

Kudos hereby retracted sir for not having the onions to stick with what you said and take the heat.

Too bad about the misquotes; we've all been there.

But don't mess with Poulter, aka the Pink Panther. The kid has the game to go with his gonads. He'll be heard from and won't be a non-winner for very long.

Hi Skip: I've updated to reflect Poulter's complaints, and I'll readily bow to your expertise in collegiate athletics and baseball (and probably tons of other stuff), but I am indeed messing with Poulter. He doesn't even have the gonads to stick to his words and far from being a kid, he's 32!! I predict no PGA tour wins for him this year.

PS: the "real" pink panther is Paula Creamer, though Ian is smashing in pink for sure.

For some reason this story reminds me of Jeff Spicoli's dream sequence in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High". --“...then I’m going to wing on over to London and jam with the Stones."

Sorry. Apparently Internet Explorer felt it was necessary to re-iterate.
