Woods says meeting Mandela "inspiring time"
At the British Open this summer, when Mandela's health was failing, he told of walking into a living room in Mandela's home and feeling a presence he couldn't describe.
A gentleman asked us to go into this side room over here and, 'President Mandela will join you in a little bit.
Woods, the first player of black heritage to win the Masters in 1997 with a record-breaking performance, was in the middle of overhauling his swing in the fall of 1998.
Woods returned to South Africa five years later for the Presidents Cup, a time when there was uncertainly whether Americans would travel such a long distance in November for the event.
Mandela met with Woods, Ernie Els and the rest of the players that week at the Presidents Cup, and he attended the opening ceremony.
Woods was informed of Mandela's death after finishing his round at Sherwood Country Club, and before he spoke to reporters.
Nelson Mandela's death left world soccer in deep mourning, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said Thursday, while new International Olympic Committee head Thomas Bach paid tribute to the anti-apartheid icon as a man who understood the unifying power of sport.
Blatter said in a statement that "Nelson Mandela will stay in our hearts forever," and ordered that the 209 flags of the world soccer body's member countries at FIFA headquarters in Switzerland be lowered and flown at half-staff.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest political leaders of any era, the reaction from many of the world's biggest sporting organizations were clear testimony to the enormous affinity Mandela had for sport — and to sport's great love for the Nobel Prize winner.
"What I will remember most about Mr.
U. N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says Nelson Mandela was "a giant for justice" whose "selfless struggle for human dignity, equality and freedom" inspired many people around the world.
"No one did more in our time to advance the values and aspirations of the United Nations," Ban told reporters soon after Mandela's death was announced Thursday.
Brian McCann arrived at Yankee Stadium on Nov. 19 and was greeted on the field by CC Sabathia and the pitcher's kids.
McCann toured the opulent clubhouse, then went to a hotel room arranged by the team at the $695-and-up Mandarin Oriental overlooking Central Park.
McCann merely had to take an elevator downstairs for a dinner with manager Joe Girardi and three other team executives at Porter House New York, a sleek steak restaurant in the Time Warner Center, filled with cherry wood floors and leather seating.
Four days later, he had a deal for an $85 million, five-year contract, the start of a new spending spree by the Yankees that also includes a pending $153 million, seven-year agreement with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury.
"When the Yankees call you and then you go through the process that I went through, you leave blown away," McCann said Thursday during a news conference at his new home ballpark.
Himself a former Yankees catcher, Girardi was excited about upgrading with McCann, a seven-time All-Star who joins a lineage that includes Bill Dickey, Yogi Berra, Elston Howard, Thurman Munson and Jorge Posada.
McCann and Ellsbury, who hope to benefit from Yankee Stadium's short porch in right field, appear to be just the start of an upgrade.
Cashman said he thinks pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, who turns 39 in February, wants to return for a third season with the Yankees.
Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk was taken from the ice on a stretcher after a hit from behind by Montreal forward Max Pacioretty on Thursday night.
The hit into the end boards to the right of goalie Carey Price did not look particularly hard, but Boychuk's head struck the top of the boards and he fell to the ice.
