The Tiger Woods Made for TV Scandal

Reports are coming in and so far it is sounding like Tiger Woods is more a Mr. Putz than Mr. Putts.  While the recent events in his life prompt me to write this, let's instead put him aside for now and take a wider look at fame, fortune and power:  When one looks across the landscape of the people who have become very successful in their careers (as the world counts "success") we see a troubling number who are total failures at other, more fundamental levels of life.  We ask ourselves how people could allow their lives to get so messed up.  Then the wiser among us pause to take an inventory of our own lives.

My beat up old car, modest home, relative anonymity, discount-store blue jeans and MARRIAGE THAT WORKS is looking pretty good right now.

  1. I agree Innominatus. I don't know that I'd trade my pay check to paycheck life for a golf club wielding wife, wrecked Escalade, and massive public embarrassment.

  2. Hi Guys! I'm so happy you have great lives and that your marriage is so wonderful, Innominatus (Matt u didn't say if u were wed.)

    I'm single with no kids, but if this is what happens in bad marriages, I'll stay happily single. The super rich and famous can never be satisfied with all the good they have in life. And Tiger takes that to the nth degree! Look at the BILLIONS he has, and a beautiful wife, and two cute healthy kids....still it's never enough. I think for him, its always looking for the next big "score" if you will. I'd imagine in reality he's bored with his life and an endless supply of willing women gives him something (one) new to do. Plus, he had such a controlled life as a child, now that his dad's dead, he feels he's entitled to "let loose". Just my amateur Diagnosis.

    Now, on the funnier side. What's the difference between a golf ball and a Caddilac?
    Tiger can drive a golf ball 400 yards.

    Why didnt Tiger climb the tree instead of running into it.

    Of course, he blamed it on a problem with his Escalade. Typical.....whenever a golfer hits a tree, he blames it on his Caddie

    What do baby seals and Tiger Woods have in common? Both were clubbed by a Norwegian.

    Why was Tiger in such a hurry at 2:30?
    He was late getting to the next hole.

    I did a search for "jokes"

  3. I still think Tiger is a phenomenal athlete.

    But yeah, this puts some shit into perspective. Right now, it absolutely sucks to be Woods.
