Tiger Woods Spitting: Why Woods' Loogie Really Isn't That Big Of a Deal
Tiger Woods Spitting Isn't All That Big of a Deal; So Why Are We Discussing it
Former world number one golfer Tiger Woods found himself at the center of another media firestorm on Sunday after television cameras caught him spitting on the 12th green during the second round of the Dubai Desert Classic.
Woods was crouching to line up a putt on the 12th green, when he turned, hocked and fired an extremely visible loogie, much to the consternation of the announcers, and thousands of television viewers around the world.
"How disgusting!" they cried, "What a disgrace to the game!"
But was it really? After all, anyone who watches sports for any length of time can tell you that almost every single athlete on the planet drops saliva bombs on a regular basis. Baseball players are notorious for launching loogies all over the field, including the basepaths and around home plate.
And have you ever watched a soccer match? Premier League footballers, Serie A footballers and yes, even Cristiano Ronaldo hock stuff up all the time, but they don't stop there. Many footballers will close off one nostril and fire a Class V snot rocket onto the pitch with regularity, leaving snotty landmines all over the pitch.
In other words, before we go blasting Tiger, remember that he was just doing something that every other athlete does. Don't act all offended by it; it's just a part of sports.
