Flashback: "Please give the kid a break.”

Ahhhh, nostalgia!

After the reports out of the new A-Rod book have Tiger Woods was getting three times as many house calls from Dr. Spaceman Galea  than everyone first admitted, I went back in the archives (four years!) to re-read about the old Doc Galea days.

I forgot about this from Don Van Natta Jr., Michael S. Schmidt and Ian Austen's original New York Times story outting the doc.

The doctor said he flew to Orlando, Fla., at least four times to give Mr. Woods the platelet therapy at his home in Windermere, Fla., in February and March of this year. When asked for comment about Mr. Woods’s involvement with Dr. Galea, Mark Steinberg, of I.M.G., responded in an e-mail message: “I would really ask that you guys don’t write this? If Tiger is NOT implicated, and won’t be, let’s please give the kid a break.”
