Tomorrow’s New York Post cover could be the star that went on top


Yesterday we "reported" that Tiger Woods had made the cover of the New York Post for 16 straight days.  Somehow, we inexplicably missed one cover, which was the cautiously subtle "Tiger's Back 9."

So with today's cover in the books, the count is officially at 18, with just one more to go to tie the Post's previous record of 19, which was set after the events of 9/11.  Two topics with about as much in common as Lyle Alzado and Stephen Hawking.

Even more impressive, the New York Daily News is already at 19 straight covers, albeit with a few less dong jokes.
