"The last laugh with men," says Wilbon, "is always money, fame and women. And you get more of each of those if you're Tiger Woods."

Kornheiser: "After 9/11 all the people who said we shouldn't play the games were f——— morons. F—-you! In fact, we needed the games more than ever. And when the games came back, people were so grateful—mostly people who were grieving."
Wilbon: "I disagree with that. I don't think people are dopes. I think people thought it was inappropriate to resume at that time. I was at some of those things. It was inappropriate to ask people to fly."
Kornheiser: "They're still painting their goddam faces and screaming and acting like dopes."
Wilbon: "Millions of people don't paint their faces!"
"You know that fat schmuck I'm talking about," says Kornheiser. "He hasn't changed a goddam bit."
Wilbon: "He's a dope. Other people did change their behavior."
