  • Tiger Woods?

    "I get to play golf for a living. What more can you ask for - getting paid for doing what you love."

    Apparently he asked for hoes, lots of hoes...which he paid for...to do what he loved.

    Other than Tiger, very inspirational list.

  • Tiger's personal life is one thing. The gist is about getting paid to do what you love. Just pretend it came from Arnold Palmer or something

  • In reply to jeffschear:

    Arnold Palmer was probably a bigger womanizer than Tiger Woods. Nonetheless, I catch the gist and will think of another honorable monogamous God-fearing golfer to go with this quote.
