It sure didn't take long for folks fist-pumping with Tiger Woods on the first nine Sunday at the Masters to throw haymakers at him after he was done with his second. My Twitter account blew up twice and the comments after his exit interview with CBS weren't even rated PG.
I'm not singling out Tiger, apparently he did a great job of that himself. But Rory McIlroy is proof that it doesn't have to go that way. So, why is it that some athletes think interviews are an obligation and some treat it like an opportunity. If you're mad, or don't love the question, twist it in your favor, smile or promote yourself or your cause.
Why? The bottom line is people notice everything and bad body language can shorten a victory receiving line in short order, if you care.
