Tiger Woods & David Shaw Took Portuguese Studies At Stanford Together

Funny story from Tiger Woods. Well, it's at least as funny as a guy who plays golf like Mr. Roboto can do.

In case you didn't know, the Stanford football team is ranked No. 7 in the country. My freshman year -- 1995 -- I had a class with David Shaw called "Portuguese Studies." He is now the head football head coach. Good luck, David, and Go Cardinal!

It's an interesting meeting of minds. Here you have two Stanford Cardinal grads, both with very famous distinctions. One grew up to become a rather impressive individual who accomplished all his dreams and made his dad proud for getting to where he was today. The other one grew up to be Tiger Woods.

What does one learn in Portuguese studies? How to be overtaken by the Dutch? Also, can you name the most impressive person Portugal has produced in between Ferdinand Magellan and Cristiano Ronaldo? Bonus points if she's hot.
