Now a quick blurb about my favorite blog fodder, er, I mean, adulterer, Tiger Woods. The Associated Press is reporting that Tiger Woods will address the media this Friday. His agent said, “This is all about the next step. He’s looking forward to it.” You can read the entire article here.
Do you want to know why Tiger is looking forward to it? Because his “apology” won’t mean anything; and it will be done in front of a group of hand-picked media. They won’t be allowed to ask him any questions and only one camera will be in the room.
Personally, I’d rather talk to my fax machine than hear about another Tiger Woods’ mistress. But it’s so easy to make fun of him. So you tell me; was he a sex addict who needed help or will it only be a matter of time before he strays again?

I really just don’t care. His behavior was pathetic.
I think he was a scum bag who got too big for his britches and finally got caught. Call it “sex addiction” if you want, but I think that’s a cop out. No one has to take any responsibility for their actions any more, they just have to plead addiction and go to (fill in the blank) rehab.
“Personally, I’d rather talk to my fax machine”
I read one of his mistresses Rachael U. has gotten a job as an entertainment correspondent
Amen Jen, that is exactly what I was going to say. When I heard Dr Drew Pinksky talking so compassionately about Tiger and his ‘addiction’ I wanted to punch him through the TV. GIVE.ME.A.BREAK. I would so much rather see him just stand up and say “I’m a man whore. I f**ked a whole lot of women and this is where we are…” opposed to his lame route “Poor me, wah, I suffer from a sex addiction. I can’t possibly be held responsible for my actions”. Pathetic is an understatement. I think his wife is an idiot to stay with him. All I can say is don’t cry about it next time he cheats on you and expect me to feel bad because I won’t.
Whatever, totally a douchebag.
I honestly hope he walks out, grabs the mic and tells everyone to go screw themselves, especially those who individuals that don’t know hm from Adam and want an apology. It’s Tiger’s deal, I could care less if he plowed half the world as long as I never came in contact with whoever it was he was doing the do with.
Extreme John has an extreme point…I know we all want to be able to say that these people should be role models, but I just don’t expect it anymore. He’s a human being, and he screwed up. It’s none of my business if his sponsors keep him or drop him. I guarantee you that when he comes back and starts winning again, he’ll have no problem picking up sponsors. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like him, but who am I?
You know John and Don, you brought up something I don’t understand. Why most of us think its our business when these people have affairs. Honestly, aside from the people directly effected, who cares? I know I don’t, not to be rude, but seriously why would I? Why should I? I find it so annoying when people resign from their jobs or worse get fired because they cheated on their husbands or wives. Who cares. As long as it doesn’t effect your job I don’t care. You’re the only who’s going to have to deal with the consequences of your actions not me. I don’t believe that should be cause for termination from your job. If you want to go out and cheat and make yourself look like a douche that’s on you I don’t understand why people who have nothing to do with the situation are always trying to make it about them.
The only reason I would care is because I have little boys who look up to him. Listen, cheat don’t cheat, I don’t care – but don’t take sponsorship money selling that you are one thing and you are obviously another. Fame comes at a price.
Okay, I watched the apology and I felt like I wanted to cry for his wife the whole time. I’m willing to give him a chance and he said everything I wanted him to (though I’m sure a speech writer wrote that for him). And he didn’t say sex addiction (but eluded to it) so I didn’t have to climb through my TV to wring his neck. Did his mom look pissed or what?!?
I missed it live at 11 a.m. But I just had the chance to watch it too. It seemed a too staged my for my taste. And Jen is right; I felt bad for his wife the most. His mom did look mortified…
Here’s a interesting one for the ladies. My wife was reading a survey that asked men. “If you could cheat without getting caught, would you do it.” 87% said yes. But of course that is not anyone’s husband from this post. They are probably all too poor. 😉
Tiger woods is a douche bag. Noone can argue thst fact. Jen, why are you worried about your son looking up to this idiot. He can admire Tiger for his golf skill. He can be turned off by his personal behavior. The biggest role model in a child’s life is the same sex parent. If your husband condemns tiger’s actions, that should be good enough. I am goinmg to let my son admire who he wants athletically, but I will live my life so (if he chooses to model me) he will always know the correct answers to tough ethical questions.
I have to say that tiger is “SORRY”. A great athlete, but a sorry excuse for a man. He can have the will power to work hard at what he does; he can have the integrity and the commitment to the sport; but when it comes to manhood, this guy should cash in his chips, call it even, and walk away. No one should look up to him for his actions. Yah, he can swing a club… but apparently he is also a swinger of other sorts.
1. Who cares
2. I would rather listen to someone elses ringtones and a fax machine than Tiger’s rants.
3. Let me restate Tiger.. Nobody cares
No one should look up to him for his actions. Yah, he can swing a club… but apparently he is also a swinger of other sorts.(Tallelf)
Isnt this the actual problem, the people who viewed him for anything but his great ability to swing the club. Sorry is right!
All good points. Sure, it was staged. From the single camera in the room to the suspiciously stiff-looking tears and hugs. But my question for you is, does it really matter? I mean, what difference does it make? Sure, he’s a celebrity, but he’s also a human being and therefore entitled to his privacy. Yes, I know, he’s a role model and all that jazz, but honestly, I’m just a wee bit peeved at our nation’s tendencies to make everyone’s personal lives public.
