SILVERMAN: On Sports:
Tonight I kept it simple and sweet. Two topics, golf and homosexuality in sports.
Thanks to Nick Masuda of Golfweek Magazine for coming on the show and having an awesome conversation about Tiger Woods and The Players Championship. Tiger has been so dominant and we explored how much he has improved.
So much has happened since Jason Collins came out a few weeks ago. Tonight was the first opportunity I have had to have Hudson Taylor on the show since the announcement. We talked about what happened with Collins, what has taken place since and where gays in sports are going. Taylor’s organization, Athlete Ally is leading the charge.
Enjoy the show!

A gossip report says Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have discussed marriage and have even talked about possible prenups.
I’m not one that likes the thought of fans being able to call penalties on players from their televisions at home. And with the recent news at The Masters, on Tiger Woods illegal drop, this is just going to make everything worse. But after last week’s TPC Sawgrass and another Tiger Woods controversial drop, the tour needs to do something. If the best player in the world doesn’t...

Odds for the 2013 U.S. Open have been released and to no surprise, Tiger Woods is a overwhelming favorite to take home the major.
Sergio Garcia lost the tournament lead that he shared with Tiger Woods on the 17th hole of Sunday's final round of the PGA Players Championship when he shot the ball into the water twice on the way to a quadruple-bogey. Garcia followed it up by hitting the ball into the water again on the 18th and finished with a double-bogey on the final hole.
The video here, set to the...
One bad tee shot made Tiger Woods appear vulnerable. One clutch par putt and a critical birdie made him look invincible.
Woods closed out The Players Championship on Sunday like he has so many other tournaments: hitting big shot after big shot down the stretch.
His latest unflappable finish helped him secure his fourth victory of 2013 and capture the richest prize on the PGA Tour...
Some Twitter comedian observed that Tiger Woods apparently retained ownership of Sergio Garcia in his pre-nup with Elin. That's harsh, but this...
Sergio Garcia has had his share of painful final round moments throughout his long career. The Players Championship, and more specifically the 17th hole at Sawgrass, was host to one of his finer moments, though.
Sunday, however, was not one of those finer moments. Garcia quadruple bogeyed 17, falling out of a share of the lead, and effectively giving away the tournament. Tiger Woods...
Love him or hate him (and there seems to be no middle ground) it is hard to argue against the claim that Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer in the history of the PGA. The numbers are staggering, 78 career wins in 300 starts including 14 major championships.
Lets take a quick look at the top 10 on the all time wins list :
1 Sam Snead 82 wins, 7 majors in 30 years
2 Tiger Woods 78...
