A year ago this week, Elin Nordegren and the rest of the world were just learning that Tiger Woods was not the perfect individual we once thought he was.
If you need a quick refresher, Tiger was caught in an extramarital affair not with one woman, but allegedly, according to the National Enquirer, 120 women.
While evidently not all sources on all things Tiger Woods should be trusted, the facts and results of the case emerged clearly over the last year. Tiger cheated on his wife multiple times. He lied about it to her, the media and his fans.
Yet in the contemporary world of sports, this is a common event. Kobe Bryant was once the most hated man in sports, not just for his infidelities but also for accusations of rape. Antonio Cromartie has five different paternity suits and seven children.
