Why Should I Write About Tiger Woods?

I played a round out in the Valley yesterday at one of the courses that is operated by the City of Los Angeles. The range was a little dry and some of the fairways were as well. Oh, and you could pay with a credit card for your green fees but only cash for the cart rental. The concessions stand in the middle of the course was cash only too but you could use your credit card in the clubhouse, but only if you spent a minimum of $10. Good thing our 3rd had cash on him - who ever still carries cash?

But the round I was playing is not the title or video I put up today. What started as news of a car accident has escalated into all sorts of shenanigans.

What is really going on?

We will probably never REALLY know the truth. Do we want to? Does it matter?

I know I can sleep at night not knowing any details. Whatever is going on in the Woods family is their business. Of course, being #1 puts you in a massive spotlight and some will even say that makes you obligated to behave a certain way.

Do you want to know what happened?

I'd like to know what happened; I think everybody would. But even more, I'd like to hear two "reports" that said the same thing.

Right now, this seems to be a competition between those who want to keep their idol on a pedestal and those who want to see that idol fall... and nobody cares about the facts.

I feel sorry for Tiger right now; the dark side of his celebrity status is working overtime against him. Regardless of what really happened, I suspect he feels very lonely. But Tiger has more than most of us will ever have; when the rewards are that great, you know the costs are gonna be a b*tch.

So I'm not losing any sleep over it either, Apryl. I just hope the Big Cat gets a fair shake.

If you land an interview with Mr. Woods, I definitely want to hear it. ;o)

Families have problems. I wouldn't want all of mine on the nightly news. But just to be safe, I'm not making anymore 3am runs to Meijer for Children's Motrin. I'm keeping a full stock at home.

Apryl DeLancey said...

Mike - yeah, I hope everything is fair all around!

Heather - An interview with Tiger would be quite cool. Of course, I'd ask him some off-the-wall questions that nobody else would think of (or at least try to). I'd also offer to teach him to surf (if he already doesn't know how) in exchange for time with him and his swing coach!

Lindsay said...

Yeah, will you interview Tiger for us??

The fact that no one knows the truth about what happened is probably worse, because then people make assumptions or spread rumors.

Apryl DeLancey said...

Yeah, let me get right on that interview. I'm sure he'll call me right back.
