Listen, I love Tiger Woods* as much as any golf fan, but this is insanity.
It appears Woods has decided to go back to college (he does have two more years of eligibility) to play baseball, and has turned his shoulder on Stanford for North Carolina State. I guess we should have seen this coming, with the long drives and incredible shoulder turn and hand-eye coordination that would make Mickey Mantle weep.
The always amazing Brahsome points out that N.C. State inked the deal with Woods after a late push for the 14-time major champion.
The Wolfpack made a late push to get the right handed slugging first basemen after several other high profile programs backed off in the wake of Woods' torn ACL and stress fractures. Woods looks to push for playing time as a true freshman.
