So, Tiger Woods is not playing in the Safeway Open,
00:03
withdrawing just three days after he got our hopes up
00:05
by committing to the event.
00:07
I'm doing my best to hang in there,
00:08
but it's not a good sign when your co-worker's
00:11
7-year-old daughter sees you and says,
00:13
why is the man in the vest so sad.
00:17
Some day, you'll understand, little one.
00:19
But I still don't understand this late change of heart.
00:22
Was potentially playing with Phil Mickelson
00:24
too much pressure?
00:25
Do you really have the chipping yips?
00:27
Were you worried about losing to Stephen Curry
00:29
in the Pro Am?
00:31
Do you need a pep talk from Coach Taylor?
00:34
I haven't had my emotions played with like this
00:36
since Lebron James' decision.
00:38
Still can't believe he didn't go to the Knicks.
00:40
The only thing keeping me going
00:42
in the wake of Tiger's latest decision
00:43
is the office vending machine and Ken Bone memes,
00:46
oh, and Boyz II Men, lots of Boyz II Men.
00:50
♫ Still I can't let go
00:55
Look, it was great seeing Tiger at the Rider Cup
00:58
and at the Stanford football game over the weekend,
01:00
but we miss watching him play.
01:02
Maybe this is the end of the road,
01:04
but hopefully it's just a minor speed bump.
01:07
Come back when you're ready, Tiger.
01:08
And when you do, it'll be one sweet day.
01:12
Okay, I really am listening to way too much Boyz II Men.
