Jim Gray to Corey Pavin: 'You're going down': Will Tiger Woods win the PGA Championship and get a Ryder Cup berth?

Who cares now?

Jim Gray and Corey Pavin went at it big time after Pavin, captain of the Ryder Cup team and presumed decider on whether Woods will get a captain's-pick spot, accused Gray of misquoting him.

Jim Gray deserves more of the Chad Curtis treatment.

Jim Gray forgets, once again, the cardinal rule of journalism...the reporter is not the story. Stupid and unprofessional on too many levels to count.

Gray stuck his finger in Pavin's face during the confrontation.

Is there a reality tv school of journalism that I haven't heard of? Another tv reporter who thinks their own self-importance transcends whatever they report.

When the hell did Jim Gray become such a giant star in the journalistic field? What a dildo. Of course he goes after one of the only people in athletics smaller than him.

Or, when did Jim Gray decide to go from channeling his inner Willy Wonka to channeling his inner Rampage Jackson?

I'm wondering the same thing. How exactly would he carry out a threat to bring down Corey Pavin? Has he quietly been assembling blackmail material on sports broadcasting executives all these years?

Jim Gray and Jim Rome should make a baby that grows up to eat them and then we'll kill it.

Beyond journalistic integrity, where'd his common sense go? Publicly calling out someone rarely leads to a positive result. I'm thinking his ability to get candid responses from other golfers just evaporated.

I really wish I could borrow Mrs. Pavin's cell phone for a few minutes...

Sorry about the link...no computer these days, so I'm doing everything by cell phone, and my HTML-fu was already questionable to start with...

Link added. My HTML moves are unstoppable.

Which is why you are part of Team Pantheon, and I am not. Plus, I was not blessed with the Pope-shaped secret birthmark...
