So now where do we athletic wannabes and weekend warriors turn to find inspiration? The answer just might be found next door or across the street.
As the world's best golfers head to Augusta National for The Masters, the buzz is building around the biggest story of the week: Will Tiger Woods win his first major championship in five years?
Did anyone really think for a minute that Woods would never date again or that only some self-loathing gold digger would have any interest in him? If so, that's short-sighted, to say the least. Woods, like all of us, is more than the sum of his parts.
The Miami Heat had their 27 game winning streak snapped by Chicago 101-97. The '71-'72 Lakers record of 33 straight wins is safe.
Tiger Woods had to make winning the only possibility in his mind, and this came through supreme confidence and self-talk. All champions know the power self-talk can have.
All this "controversy" over Tiger Woods' new Nike ad is 98 percent a lot of nothin' and 2 percent a little somethin'. That's the ad above.
Sixteen teams are left in the NCAA basketball tournament. Three #1 seeds survived, Gonzaga didn't. Florida Gulf Coast is the first #15 seed to reach the Sweet 16.
In my view, Woods has it right: After about three months. Any sooner and you could rush things. What if you declare the courtship online after only three weeks, things don't pan out and you have to remove the 'in a relationship' status?
Just this week, the big news was the announcement by Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn that they're officially a couple. How did we find out? Together they shared their new status on their individual Facebook pages.
Miami beat Boston 105-103 for their 23rd straight win. Only the '71-'72 Lakers had a longer streak, 33.
Seems like a scary proposition for most people to confront one of the world's best golfers about his putting stroke. But it's proof of what professional athletes have known for years: the great ones are coachable.
Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors scored an NBA season-high of 54 points (over half of his team's total) last night in a loss to the Knicks 109-105.
And the hottest team in the NBA? That would be the champion Miami heat: It's now nine straight wins.
It was President's Days Weekend and many Americans took advantage of the three day holiday to take a mini-vacation, recharge their batteries, and relax. So did President Obama.
What do Lance Armstrong, Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps and Bartolo Colon have in common? They've all allegedly had their blood composition modified, in ways legal or not.
