Catch a Tiger By His Trail

Tiger Woods is back on the links, making it safe to actually be interested in golf again. But some people are more than interested in Mr. Woods.

David Arnott of The Sporting News uncovered an eBay auction for a discarded Gatorade bottle that supposedly graced the gilded lips of the golf demigod during the 2007 PGA Championship. This creepy bit of fan flotsam could have been yours for the low, low price of $25,000.

As you might expect, the item description was, by turns, rhapsodic and philosophical. Sample excerpt: "Was this drink enough to sustain him before he teed off? Did it provide the necessary ingredients to allow him to focus and the power needed for this hole?"

Our guess is no, but then we weren't bidding.
