Golf, Kissed With Apocalypse, Pop Rocks

Do not read anything else into the Milk reference. 

Here are my thoughts on Tiger Woods’ “Situation”…..

For the sake of full disclosure, I am no fan of Eldrick and never have been.  His on-course behavior is absurd, his personality is robotic and dry, and, of course, the current Mess(es).  However, I have been/will remain completely fascinated with his mastery of the golf ball.  I have played golf my entire life and once at a pretty high level, but watching his feats seems completely alien…

On to the Mess(es)…

Am I surprised by the (what now?…14?) alleged counts of infidelity?  Is the Pope Jewish?  Of course not, silly, and neither am I…surprised that is…or Jewish.  While Papa Woods was crafting the Chosen One/Golden Child, etc. (1996 SI Interview…Eesh), something had to give.  And the victim?  His personality, his social awareness…  Let’s be honest here–Dood’s a dork.  He just is.  And that is perfectly fine until you combine it with $(MEGA TEXAS)$ and no semblance of a social filter.  He thought he could get away with it all; he thought wrong.

The one shocking ingredient in this Tiger Stew is the recklessness and utter disregard for his wife and family.  No rubbers??  Porn stars??  Psychotic if true.

What happens next?…

How is he going to respond to “ADULTERER!!!!!!!!!!” in his backswing?  Probably not very well.  He will still be great/semi-dominant when he returns, but there is no way he will be what he once was.  When does he return?  When Nike says so…ie. before the Masters.

And the Golden Bear is right; the sporting public forgives its stars.  Maybe Tiger can earn that forgiveness here, maybe not.  But whether Jack’s statement applies here or not, he’s still…..
