Tiger Tell the Truth

Posted: November 30, 2009 in sports

I know it hurts.  I know it is embarrassing.  I know you don’t want to.  I know it is awkward.   Putting off conversations with the police are only making things worse.  People are telling the story for you.  Tell the truth.  Get it out there.  And then move on.  As long as you keep hiding the truth, this won’t go away…and will only get worse.  I’d say the same to my 10 year old.

  1. K. Rex Butts says:

    That sounds like a conversation my parents had with me a time or two when I was a child.

    Grace and peace,


  2. Lori says:

    I am going to disagree with you on this one. Given how the press hound the police until they release statements, I don’t blame Tiger a bit for not wanting to talk to them. I think it was a smart move on his part.

  3. Lori…yea…not sure that really panned out to be a smart move for old Tiger did it? Let’s keep our mouth shut and not tell the truth that way NO ONE will ever know about my affair…I mean…affairs.

    Trust always requires a level of transparency. True in every relationship. Even the artificial ones created by athletes and fans (this would also be true in situations that involve the word “steroid”).

    I’m pretty sure David Letterman would agree with you Sam.

    “those at the top of the heap, have the greatest fall…”

    from Jack Shafer on slate.com:
    In a 1997 GQ profile of Woods, Charles P. Pierce documented that the 21-year-old phenom was as normal off the golf course as he was exceptional on it. That is, he liked telling “dick” jokes. He liked scoring with the ladies.

    … for business reasons—Buick, Nike, Gatorade, Gillette, EA Sports, and Accenture being among them—Woods decided to exfoliate from his public image of all things base, carnal, and even personal…

    Given how desperately we want to believe in a human god, it didn’t take much peddling from Team Tiger for us to accept Woods as a modern deity…

    We’re embarrassed by the gap between who we believed Woods to be and who he really is; and, having put Woods on that pedestal, we want to bring him down where he belongs—with the rest of us sinners.
