A couple of months or so ago, Tiger finally come out and apologized for his, ah, indiscretions. It's obvious that his public relations, image consultants, spin doctors and the workers of the almighty make it disappear voodoo, advised Tiger to use the, "I wrote the speech myself" approach. Did it work? Well, the jury is still out on that one.
Tiger chose to speak to a few hand picked, handcuffed media people, in a news conference without any real questions in a situation where he was in total control, as always. Noticeably, Tiger's mother was there but Elin, his absolutely gorgeous wife, was absent!
Headline news was made on Sunday March 21, 2010, when Tiger gave two separate five minute interviews to ESPN and the Golf channel.
Now, I don't know about you but I was expecting something more substantial. Will we ever get all the details? No and maybe we shouldn't. But I quote "it's all in the police report" was not what I expecting. Did I mention that headline news was made?
Tiger sounded more like he was he was sorry for getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar, than he was for getting caught cheating on his wife with numerous hoochies!!
Leading up to the Masters, in Augusta Georgia, this weekend Tiger has given another interview in hopes of satiating the masses need to know the sordid details of his fall from grace and subsequent rehab. Nothing new of consequence was revealed, although Tiger did reiterate how sorry he is for letting us, the little people, along with his wife, family and close friends, down.
I am glad to see that Tiger has had at least one good friend, that will stick with him through thick or thin. Good, old reliable Nike!! Could that friendship have anything to do with the fact that Tiger Woods is Nike Golf?
The hardcore golf fan has already moved past the "Tiger" debacle and just wants to see Tiger, do one thing, play golf.
Of course, Tiger-gate was a huge story of epic proportions and the non-sports media went excessively overboard. Now the media circus keeps billing Tiger Woods at the Masters as the second coming of Jesus Christ; everyone is going to watch him!
