Headline of the Year candidate: Phil Mickelson says his wife wants a US Open trophy. In other news, Phil Mickelson's wife now dating Tiger Woods

http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=4454759


This one may actually be true now.

/Well, Tiger might at least be hittin' that
 
2009-12-29 03:32:50 PM  
I think the Phil Mickelson headline deserves votes purely for its prescience regarding Tiger Woods sleeping with tons of chicks.
 
2009-12-29 03:33:33 PM  
Phil Mickelson says his wife wants a US Open trophy. In other news, Phil Mickelson's wife now dating Tiger Woods

It's amazing how well this headline has aged...
 
2009-12-29 03:35:30 PM  
The Sharapova headline better win. I was surprised that it wasn't in the overall HOTY listings.

The Mickelson/Tiger one is so much more fitting now.

Greg Norman has now blown more Masters than Barbara Eden got my vote. Seemed the most original to me.
 
2009-12-29 03:50:55 PM  
Sharipova definitely should win. Its too bad it wasn't in the main list.
 
2009-12-29 03:52:53 PM  
The Sharapova and Greg Norman headlines are my favorites, followed closely by the Bobby Brown/Houston headline and the now appropriate Tiger Woods headline.
