Is there no end to the women that will come forth in the Tiger story that's dominated news (and late night host) headlines this past week? It's to the point where you're not sure who is telling the truth and who is looking for her 15 minutes of fame.
Yes, shame on Tiger. It appears he's a bit of a sexual deviant. If the women are telling the truth, he like is rough while buzzed on sleeping aids. Poor bastard.
I'm hugely disappointed in Tiger, no less than any other supposed role model, from athlete to politician, who lives one huge lie in a house of cards that everyone knows will tumble at some point. But what of these women? What a disappointment that they don't share in the blame of this tragic event — of course we have to start with the premise that the break up of ANY family is a tragic event — as it appears they simply slept with one of the most famously married men on the planet and for what? trips to exotic places and to be spanked on their behind. Really? I am sure those young women are so proud, and their parents too — and for what — in a couple years when they're trying to get work the only qualifications are their sexual transgressions. A fucking disappointment all the way around.
Now we see the real fall-out. Tiger's family is breaking apart with his wife leaving with the children. Tiger is losing some of his corporate support — as he should. Notice the Nike ads have stopped airing. So too have the Accenture ads. And Gillette's "The best a man can get –" have you seen that on television this week? (Don't you love the irony of that one!) Wheaties cereal, Tag Heuer watches, Gatorade — they are all taking a break. His $100 million a year in endorsements will be impacted so I hope he's invested well the estimated billion he's already banked.
When he hollers, let 'im go. Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe.
