Buzz Bissinger Talks Angry on TV
By Stephanie Wei under General

Speaking with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, good ol’ Buzz Bissinger chats about the provocative Vanity Fair cover and article, creatively titled “Tiger in the Rough.” He loves how Annie Leibovitz’s photos (which, you know, the magazine decided to dig up four years after they were originally shot) capture Tiger’s “intensity” and “focus, and especially his “narcissism” — because he let Leibovitz photograph him doing pull-ups. Wait, don’t a lot of people do those? Yes, but definitely not fat, lazy golfers, especially guys like Lee Trevino, who Bissinger calls a “smurf” and “drinker.”
