When you’ve had to undergo back surgery to get back to the point of walking and being able to shave and brush your teeth pain free you have a different level of respect for what one Eldrick Woods did today. Incredible.
Nothing personal against Tiger but I agree that this may open the floodgates for “All Tiger, All The Time” media coverage once again.Maybe it’ll be good for golf, but I doubt many of the other golfers will like it much.
I'll just chime in to say that I found Tiger's victory truly touching. Admittedly, the Masters thing is always milked for all the emotion possible every year and I'm sure that it is special for everyone who dons the Green Jacket. But yesterday, seeing Tiger joyously embrace his children (and just about anyone else who would let him, it seemed), I think I saw a man who finally understands the depth of what he has - and not just in golf. In his early years, he seemed to take it for granted that he would dominate and win because of his innate talent, hard work, and mental toughness (all of which were admirable). However, that attitude seemed to make him aloof and entitled - thus his personal and marital problems, methinks. But he now seems to understand how fleeting all that can be and it would also appear that he finally understands that lots of folks have a part in it (including the fans). Consequently, he has opened up emotionally to share it and be thankful that he can enjoy it today. I know I certainly enjoyed watching him.
Tiger was/is a scum bag. He is a great golfer, no doubt but its too bad he is morally bankrupt.
As a general rule, poon hounds don't change their spots (see Gottfried, Mark). Could he have changed? Sure. I am just not a fan of kids looking up to people with no morals. Of course that includes the bulk of the athletic world it seems.
Like I said he is a great golfer and I hold no personal animosity towards him. I just do not get the adulation him.
BTW I bet the problems his kids have due to having him as a father far out weight the joy of watching him win a golf match.
I’m a sports fan. Period. I don’t watch/refrain from watching due to my perceived morality of the performers. If I did that, I’m sure I’d be sorely disappointed time after time if I had a window into really knowing.
