Woods says people don't watch hockey anymore

DETROIT -- Don't count Tiger Woods among those glued
to their TVs during the Stanley Cup finals.

The world's top golfer appeared via teleconference on Monday,
promoting August's PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban

Woods was asked if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh.

Woods started to laugh, then landed a zinger.

"I don't really care. Let's talk about the Dodgers," the
California native said. "I don't think anybody really watches
hockey anymore."


But the improved television ratings for this year's finals
doesn't seem to match Woods' assessment.

"The National Hockey League has enormous respect for Tiger
Woods, for all his accomplishments and for his work with the
community," NHL spokesman Frank Brown said. "We think he's a
great golfer."
