When it was first reported that Tiger Woods was in a serious car accident, it may have caught our attention for a brief moment until we heard that he was treated and released from the hospital.
No big deal. After all, we don’t know Woods personally so we weren’t overly concerned with his physical health.
As stories began leaking out about an argument with his wife over alleged affairs being the cause of the accident, well, now you had our full attention.
We wanted to know EVERYTHING that happened outside of Woods’ home on that Thanksgiving night.
We wanted to know why the back windows of Woods’ car were bashed out and a golf club was lying in the road.
And we wanted to know every steamy detail imaginable about his alleged affairs.
A simple car accident, no big deal, we’re not interested.
Add in a scandal and it’s the biggest news story in the world since the September 11th attacks…oh no, wait, it’s actually a BIGGER news story then September 11th, at least according to the New York Post.
Folks, as a society, we are as nosey and nosey can be.
