Listening to the Petros and Money Show (PMS) on Fox Sports Radio while waiting for my daughter to finish her gymnastics class...
These guys were killing Tiger on the radio.
Absolutely killing him.
I heard words/phrases like "creepy," "phony," "catastrophe," and "it's over for him" in describing his actions. It was actually refreshing to hear.
I know what you're saying, "What else is there to say about Tiger's meltdown that hasn't been said?" As far as I'm concerned, plenty.
For 12 years this guy's had a cakewalk over anyone in the media, the public, and the golf and sports worlds. I mean, you couldn't get near this guy.
Now we know why.
Throwing Fuzzy (and anyone else) under the bus for daring to mess with your fraudulent persona.
Now that the cows have come home, the major media players are running for cover. What are they going to do now? They've been so willing to cut him slack, fawning over his every shot. His every word. It'll be interesting to see if they bail on him now.
"Bigger than Gandhi?" "More important than Ali?" I don't think so.
As more and more "transgressions" come out, it's no wonder Woods named his yacht "Privacy" and hid his life so carefully for so long.
Hey Phil Knight (Lord Nike), drop this guy! Like now.
Gatorade? You too. How dare you continue to associate with him with the word "Gator" in your name.
Target? See ya!
American Express? Gone!
Buick? Yeah right. No wonder GM is done too.
It's over, Tiger.
We're finished with you. You took us to the cleaners. And we were had. Big time. Living large while we watched; thinking it was only about golf. What a con.
Like the story of The Ring of Gyges in Plato's Republic in which the author discusses whether a typical person would be moral if he did not have to fear the consequences of his actions.
You didn't fear the consequences. You were above it.
You proved that you were not up to it. Your temerity trumped even Plato.
Oh, and by the way, where have you gone? Prepping for "Contrition-Fest '09" with Oprah?
When you were out there selling, you were front and center, bro. But what about now?
Out on "Privacy?"
You wanted it.
Now you've got it.
And do me a favor? Take Pitino and Kobe with you, too.
