I didn't want to talk about it but the elephant is in the room.
Apparently the guy cheated on his wife and now everyone wants to be mad at him. Guess what...IT'S NO BIG DEAL. The only person who should care is his wife. Jesper Parnevik, the golfer who introduced them, is talking about how he thought Tiger was a better guy than that. Jesper would have done the same thing if he had Tiger's options. And Elin will be fine. Either they'll stay married or should get the joy of just going to the bank the rest of her life.
Now before you get on me and ask me if I'd cheat on my wife and all that nonsense let me explain. I don't care what Tiger does Monday through Wednesday, I watch him play golf on Thursday through Sunday. Anytime outside of that, he can do what he wants. He is not accountable to me, he isn't my role model. The guy just plays golf and I enjoy watching him do his job.
Tiger won't lose sponsors either. Most of the people who buy products Tiger markets are men who really don't care that much. Michael Jordan is still peddling Nike and Gatorade and he cheated on his wife.
At the end of the day, people don't care as much as they're saying now. In a few months when he's playing on Sunday in Augusta, I won't care about what happened. I didn't care about Colorado when Kobe was winning the Finals MVP this summer, I didn't care that Peter Warrick got a deep discount on clothes when he was torching Virginia Tech in leading FSU to its last national title, and I don't care that Tom Brady left his pregnant girlfriend to start dating a supermodel.
They're athletes and I appreciate the entertainment and joy they bring me; however, they're human and should always be treated as such.
