Tiger's DNA for Sale

Perhaps you have heard the news. Tiger Woods' Apple Core is being sold on EBay to some lucky winner. On the 16th hole of the U.S Open playoff Tiger Calmly bit into an apple, then came back from being down one to force a Sudden Death ending to his 18 hole playoff with Rocco Mediate. He played in one of the greatest Opens of all time on a bum leg and is now on the shelf for the rest of the year. Amazing tournament, that led to the lowest work production across the county in years. He ended up winning there, all because of a single apple. The single greatest sports memoribila item EVER.
