The Tiger Soap Opera Continues…

ESPN has reported that Tiger Woods is at a sexual addiction clinic in Mississippi – Read the story

What do you think about this?  I think it’s part of the weird soap opera that is becoming the Tiger Woods story.  Whether this is a last ditch effort to try and save his marriage and/or his reputation, I don’t buy that he’s a sex addict.OK, I’m sure there are folks out there who are, but this is part of Tiger’s PR push.  If you thought Mark McGwire was phony (which I didn’t), what do you think of Tiger?

History is filled with celebrities and athletes that just basically think they are above the law and morals.  The bigger they get, the higher above the law.  Michal Vick, Plaxico Burress, Roger Clemens are all recent and prime examples.  Tiger’s no different.  Regardless of the fact he has a Swedish model for a wife, he believes that because he is Tiger Woods, he can do what he wants.  This isn’t about sex. It’s about power.

Babe Ruth was the iconic figure of his generation.  The Bambino was legendary for his escapades with women (he was married), booze, and the night life.  Tiger probably wishes the times haven’t changed. Babe Ruth would be all over the front page of ESPN today.

I believe this is a cover up to win good graces.  I think Tiger will be back by The Masters in April.  I agree with Geoff Ogilvy that he should talk before he walks the course.  I don’t think he will.  The Masters is an easy return.  The gallery police are pretty strict at Augusta.  Waits until he hits the U.S. and British Opens.


Extra Points:  It is reported that the Oakland Raiders are interested in Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh.  I have one piece of advice for him.  RUN. Don’t turn around. Run straight back to Palo Alto.  Even though I’m a Dwag fan, I’d never wish that on anyone.

  1. I don’t think that Tiger is addicted to sex – I think he is addicted to power. Power that allows him to do what he wants and it doesn’t matter who he hurts.
