Another One Bites the Dust

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Let me step up on my soapbox for a moment here... I am going to vent and to anyone I offend, I hereby apologize in advance.

Timeline of events: early in the hours of last Friday, Tiger Woods wrecked his SUV right next to his home--next day, police determined it wasn't because of alcohol or drugs--then the allegations began, but Tiger stayed quiet and didn't say much.

Now it's almost a week later and we have not 1, but 3 cases of where women are stepping forward saying they were having affairs with the famed athlete. I just don't understand--I thought our beloved Tiger, above any other celebrity, would never stoop so low as to have extramarital relationship{s}... he has a beautiful wife, 2 loving children, sponsorships out the wazoo, an unwaivering golf career, and the admiration of practically everyone in the world.


Maybe I am naive in my understanding of marraige, but with infidelities all over the media and in households all over the country, I know I hold marriage to a higher standard and I wholeheartedly believe that when I enter that chapter of my life, I could never jeopardize that commitment I give to my husband.
Millions of children look up to you, Tiger, and your apology may be accepted by some {not me}, but you'll never come away from all of this unscaithed. I looked online earlier today and found these statements {so now he and his loyal sponsors are deciding to talk??}

Tiger: "I'm sorry for my personal failings"
EA Sports {one of his famed sponsors}: "Our strong relationship with Tiger for more than a decade remains unchanged. We respect Tiger's privacy, we wish him a fast recovery, and we look forward to seeing him back on the golf course."

Gatorade: "Tiger and his family have our support as they work through this private matter"

He says he wants this issue to remain "private" so he and his family can work through this together--well sorry Mr. I Can't Keep My Hands to Myself, you are a professional athlete, a celebrity, and you know very well that your life is made public... now you want all those trophies and championships to be in the news, right??? Well, you don't get to pick and choose and I think you should be devastated that the media is focusing on this right now rather than the far more important issues our society is facing--the war and our economy just to name a few.

And further, Jeff and I were talking about this night and he said this: "I'm sure he has women throwing themselves at him left and right". Well in my book, I don't care-- that doesn't give him a "Get Out of Jail Free" card and shame on those girls who knew he was married and still went after him-- homewreckers I like to call them. They should be ashamed {although I am positive they are as happy as can be with UsWeekly and People paying them the big bucks to tell their stories}. GROSS!

Forbes reported that Tiger has made $1 BILLION dolars since 1996... wow! All I can say is that if Mr. Woods is cheating on a woman who looks like this, maybe we're all in more trouble than we originally thought

Wow, that felt good to get all of that frustration out!! Can you tell I am in a venting kind-of-mood?? I promise I am feeling happy and chipper today, but I just can't help it that it makes me furious to know people can throw away their life like that to get some "instant gratification" =)


  1. I just can't wrap my brain around it. He is just not right in the head!

  2. ahh, 100% with you on this one!! it's so so sad, if this is all true. she is gorgeous, why would any man ever think of cheating on her!

  3. Tornado warnings take 2nd spot on the news as Tiger Woods is all over the headlines here in Florida?! Something is wrong with this... Anyway, I agree with you! GROSS...

  4. I completely agree with you. I wonder if his wife will stand by him or get a divorce. Sad for the kids.

  5. It just makes me so mad. He had EVERYTHING!!! Disgusting. Is it that hard to keep it in your pants?

  6. I think it is funny how he wants to keep things private...well maybe you should have thought about that before he cheated-hello...he is a celebrity!

  7. I heard she may get 300 mil from this. HE. SCREWED. UP. His daddy would kill him if he were alive!

  8. I cant believe he did that.. what a scum bag!

  9. I am a huge Tiger fan and just so upset over this, I can't believe all the things he has done! I am proud of Elin for sticking up for herself and not being a pushover of a wife!! Love your blog, and I am from Nashville, but now live in TX.
