Schadenfreude in Sport

From http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story?columnist=wojciechowski_gene&id=2829607 : 

“AUGUSTA, Ga. — If you enjoy human suffering, you’ll absolutely love what’s happening here at the 71st Masters.

First of all, it’s colder than the produce bin in your fridge. It’s also gusty enough to blow most of the pretenders off the leaderboard. And before it’s finished, Augusta National officials are going to have to hire a depression therapist to work the players’ locker room.

Here are some comments heard on the course Saturday:

Phil Mickelson: “Oh, no!”
Tiger Woods: “Ah, dammit!”
Jerry Kelly: “Arrgggh!”

Stuart Appleby

Isn’t it wonderful? Nothing brings me more pleasure than watching the collective misery of men wearing Rolexes and rain gear. The more slumped shoulders the better. Expletives are encouraged.”

And the article goes on like that…
