Months ago Tiger Woods hit the lime light in a very different way – his SUV attacked a tree with him in it. It was assumed his wife lost control of a golf club, maybe a 9 iron, as it drove into Tiger’s SUV’S windows. Media coverage swarmed in supreme to a hungry school of perona, and proceeded to devour and divulge every aspect of his personal life. Perhaps PETA should step in and declare such treatment as Tiger Abuse.
Now, Tiger has returned to competition and media bottom feeders are dinning in mass. Nike has run an ad doing a voice over from Tigers’ father saying; “what have you learned?” Tigers answer to media asking this question to him should be; “How many of you media types are following in Barbara Walters’ footsteps? My personal life was private before this happened and now, it is again. Have a good day.”
Tiger Woods is a golf pro. He is not a god, God; and certainly not GOD. A man encouraging idolizing any professional athlete is failing at his job of being a father. Any mother doing the same, is failing in an equal manner. Professional athletes are first people; second- human, and third not worthy of worship. Anyone doing so, have failed life’s reality test.
Wake-up America, sports is for entertainment and character building. Anything beyond that, and you are asking for trouble.
