Annika Sorenstam: Golf's Billy Jean King

So Sorenstam, the winningest female golfer of all time, and arguably the best ever, has accepted an invitation to play the world's best male golfers in a PGA tournament. She's only the second woman ever to do this.

Most of ther men have been gracious and enthusiastic, but of all people, Tiger Woods disappoints. He said he was happy to play against Sorenstam, but said he was worried that it would be bad for women's golf if Sorenstam played poorly.

Note to Tiger: I hope she kicks your sorry ass.

Al the talk is about how women have a physical disadvantage because they don't have the power off the tee. This tourney should level the playing field with its short fairways. Besides, if the important thing about golf were physical power, these guys would be weightlifters, not riding around in stupid little golf carts and wearing chinos.

Three passions,[url=]warcraft leveling[/url] simple but [url=]wow lvl[/url] overwhelmingly strong,[url=]wow power level[/url] have governed [url=]wow power level[/url] my life: the longing [url=]wrath of the lich king power leveling[/url] for love, the search for knowledge,[url=]World of warcraft Power Leveling[/url] and unbearable pity [url=]WOTLK Power Leveling[/url] for the suffering [url=]wlk power leveling[/url] of mankind. These passions,[url=]wlk power leveling[/url] like great winds,[url=]age of conan gold[/url] have blown me hither and thither,[url=]cheap aoc gold[/url] in a wayward course,[url=]aoc power leveling[/url] over a great ocean [url=]ffxi gil[/url] of anguish, reaching [url=]final fantasy xi gil[/url] to the very verge of despair. I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy - ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed [url=]FFXI Gil[/url] all the rest of life for [url=]final fantasy gil[/url] a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, [url=]wow gold[/url], because it relieves loneliness--that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness [url=]dog clothes[/url] looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss.
