I wasn't about to get too excited watching the Hall of Fame game yesterday, despite the fact that it featured my Dallas Cowboys.
I wasn't even going to get excited over the fact they won 24-20, beating the pre-season Miami Dolphins.
The Hall of Fame game is kind of like one of those international friendlies in REAL football, where one team plays another just for fun.
They can sometimes be interesting to watch, but they really don't count.
That's pre-season football in general.
No, my eye was more glued on the Bridgestone Invitational, where Tiger Woods owned the weekend outright.
And I mean owned it.
Of course, he'd been on a "59" watch during Friday's third round, where he still shot the course record 61.
But through the weekend, he was like a marathoner leaving the rest of the pack well behind him, sprinting toward the finish with nary a care in the world.
Never mind this victory was also historical, matching golf legend Sam Snead's PGA Tour record wins in a single event, again (after having done so earlier this year when he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the eighth time as well).
So here come the lingering major questions: As we move north to Rochester, New York, for the 2013 PGA Championship, will Tiger bring that kind of "mo" to the year's last golf major?
I guess that depends on which Tiger shows up. If it's the guy at Akron, watch out. In his last round yesterday, Tiger shot an even-par 70, not exactly a stroke of golfing genius... that is, if you're just looking for low scores.
In those windy conditions, and with a seven-shot lead, Tiger played smart golf -- you know, the kind where you don't get in any trouble and you make the competition come after YOU!
If Tiger from earlier in the week shows up at Oak Hill, there's no reason he can't take a big and early lead (well, other than Oak Hill probably won't be playing quite as friendly as Akron). And though Tiger hasn't won 17 starts in a major, let's also not forget he HAS already won 14 of them.
I have no clue which Tiger will show up this week but I look forward to watching and seeing!
