Cal’s Snake Oil: Coach Cal can satisfy all of your holiday shopping needs

December 13, 2010

In preparation for Tiger Woods’ return to the PGA Tour next week, Phil Mickelson is  growing a mullet.

“Look, Tiger’s losin’ the hair and I know he can’t be happy about it,” said Mickelson, whose third round 62 blistered Riviera Country Club on Saturday. “I’m going to let my freak flag fly.  The knee will be the least of Tiger’s worries now.”
