You know Tiger Woods is getting up there in age when he's blaming bad play Wednesday at the back nine in The Barclays tournament at New Jersey' Liberty National Golf Course on account of a stiff neck and back.
How did he get these "injuries"? No, ex-wife Elin Nordegren didn't come at him with a nine iron again. Instead, Woods blames his problems on his "too soft" hotel bed .
"My neck and back are a little bit stiff. It was stiff this morning after a soft bed and just one of those things, sleeping in hotels." he said. "I didn't want to push it, so just took it easy and chipped and putted."
Hmm. If this isn't a Goldilocks moment, we don't know what is. Woods, who is looked to be a surefire winner in this pro-am tournament was asked if he was getting a new bed in time for the FedEx Cup Playoffs on Thursday. He answered with a smile, "What do you think? We'll have something." But will it be enough? The man has apparently been plagued by elbow and back injuries the whole summer.
Now we're not sure what hotel Woods is staying at, as there isn't a boatload of high-end hotels in Jersey City. Perhaps it's time to start traveling with a Tempurpedic, Tiger? After all, there's $10 million at stake here.
In the meantime, what do you think? Is Tiger being a big pussycat by blaming the hotel bed? Have you ever been unable to work thanks to a "too soft" sleeping situation? We'd like to know!

Oh, Stanford Blatch You are too cute.
Years ago when Sex and the City first debuted on HBO, the Manolo-filled closets and Cosmo-soaked nights of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte lured women to the Big Apple in the hopes that they too could be that fabulous. Some succeeded and others went to work in retail, and now the Sex and the City lifestyle is marketed mainly at tourists.
If you're one of these travelers headed for NYC soonperhaps just in time for the Sex and the City 2 movie premierethen there is a man who can make you wildest SATC dreams come true as part of your hotel stay. His name is Jarl Haugedal and he wants to be your personal Stanford Blatch, aka your best gay friend with whom you can shop, dine and drink your way around NYC.
What the Westin JC looks like now.
Find yourself having to come home to Jersey for the holidays but want the option of some New York City action? It's too bad the Westin Jersey City won't be ready for ya! With its proximity to lower Manhattan (one stop to the West Village or two stops to the Financial District) and breathtaking views of the same), the new Westin would have made an excellent option getting in some quality city time over the holiday. Why all the pluperfect subjunctive, you ask? Well, the Westin was originally slated to open its doors this month but now the hot property is delayed until early February 2009.
