The Tiger Woods Tease

December 3rd, 2009

By Harvey Grund

Tiger&ElinI’ve been a bad boy, Tiger Woods readily and publicly admits, … but I don’t want to talk about it!

OK, so he made a mistake — he slipped up — he had an affair or whatever the heck he did — that’s one thing, and no, he doesn’t have to discuss it with every hack reporter who feels he or she is “entitled” because Tiger is a famous sports star.

He does need to square things with the wife and with his sponsors, but his real fans don’t need an apology — they need to see him tee off. Does Tiger really think that many of his loyal fans really care about his private life? Perhaps some do, but those are the ones he doesn’t need — they’re not golf fans, they’re looking for a role model. Tiger Woods didn’t get where he is by being an angel or a role model — he got where he is by being one of the best golfers in the world.

Apparently Tiger either has some physical injury from the car crash … or he is being really dumb by skipping the “Chevron World Challenge” (aka: “Tiger’s Tournament”).

ESPN reports that:

Proceeds from the event (Tiger’s Tournament) go to the Tiger Woods Foundation, which has a learning center in nearby Anaheim that has helped thousands of students. That concept has been a longtime dream of Woods and his late father, Earl, conceived nearly the moment Tiger turned pro in 1996.

But the charity is likely to take a hit this week, as Woods is at home in Florida, nursing the injuries — both literal and figurative — suffered in the one-car crash Friday that has made worldwide headlines.

You’ve probably all heard the joke about Mike the avid golfer:

Mike was teeing up for a very difficult shot. At that moment a funeral procession went by. Mike stopped, stood still with his hat over his heart, and bowed his head. His golfing partner looked at him and said, “Mike, that was kind and decent of you to show such respect for the dead.”

Mike replied, “Yes, we would have been married twenty-six years come tomorrow.”

That, to many sports fans, is more of a fantasy than it is a joke.

    With all the press coverage of Tiger Woods’ indiscretions (or not) and the White House party crashers (or not), it’s amazing that the media found time to report such lesser stories as the President’s speech on Afghanistan.

    I’m tempted to make my own YouTube video — mess up my hair, sniff an onion so I can cry, and scream “Leave Tiger alone!” Far as I’m concerned, he should just keep his mouth shut and play golf. All the rest of that stuff is private and should stay that way.

    Speaking of which, I played golf for about seven years in my youth. Given the way I was working, spending five hours to play 18 holes once or maybe twice a week was tough to do. I eventually figured out that I lacked the three essential Ts of golf — time, temperament, and talent. So I sold the damn clubs and never picked up one again. It’s an evil game….

    Tom, I’m with you on that. My biggest problem was finding a set of clubs that were long enough for me. I know they make them, but I wasn’t nearly devoted enough to the sport to spend that kind of money. Besides, if I’m going to drop coin like that, I’d rather spend it on a rifle or shotgun.

    I think we should leave him alone, but I think his penance should be to stop practicing the big ego move of wearing a red shirt on Sundays. I think every time he wears his red shirt on Sunday, it should be commonly referred to as fire hydrant red.
