Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Tiger Woods Goes Off on Writer
Tiger Woods vs. Dan Jenkins
Think Tiger Woods doesn't care what writers say about him? Think again. In a piece for The Player's Tribune, Woods went off on 84-year-old Dan Jenkins. “Did you read Dan Jenkins’ interview with me in the latest Golf Digest? I hope not. Because it wasn’t me,” writes Tiger. “It was some jerk he created to pretend he was talking to me. That’s right, Jenkins faked an interview, which fails as parody, and is really more like a grudge-fueled piece of character assassination.” But that's not all. Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, wrote a letter to the magazine "requesting a formal response to these questions on how journalistically or ethically this piece is acceptable." Since you asked, I'd advise Tiger to grab some Wendy's, play some Legend of Zelda and laugh the whole thing off.
3,800 Cans of Seafood
Don't freak out if you happen to be at Regan National Airport this week and see a nine-foot tall statue of Jayson Werth made entirely of seafood cans. It's part of Arlington’s annual Canstruction competition, which features large sculptures made out of full cans of food.
Contest: Win Sting's Bat
Good news, pro wrestling fans. Our friends at the WWE have given us an autographed Sting bat to give away. We decided to make you work for it a little by playing a pro wrestling booker.

Enter the Bill Walton Teepee
Yes, Bill Walton has a teepee and it's exactly what you thought it'd be. I'm hoping this dude has a teepee nearby so they still hang out and complain about bad Brent Mydland songs (sorry, couldn't help myself).
