I would say that quite a few parents will be taking down their kids posters of Tiger in the next few days if they haven't already. Sure he's still a great golfer but he's just as human as everyone else.

This is the funniest Tiger related thing I've seen and it's totally legit. CGI re-enactment of the Tiger Woods incident from Taiwanese news.

The comments by Jesper Parnevik are just brutal. Can't say at all that I would disagree with them if I were in Jesper's place.

Pre-nup Renegotiation Time

Of course unspoken here is that if she splits, she almost certainly would get the kids (Tiger with visitation) and a rather massive Child Support level so the kids can continue to live in a manner they're accustomed to. That probably would include a mansion or two.

Pre-nup or not, she deservedly has Tiger by the balls. It's pretty clear that the lady in Vegas with the voice message isn't the only one during the marriage, and a floodgate of other women would open if it goes into Ugly Divorce zone.

I bet Kobe Bryant is thinking he got off cheap. :)

The was a remote earlier in the week about Tiger telling a friend that he needed a Kobe Ring, i.e. a House On The Finger for his wife.

For a rather smart guy, Tiger has been pretty stupid banging everything in sight for the past decade and a half. One would have thought that he got it out of his system when he settled down with the super model and started having kids. That he would know that there's no 100% reliablity that one of the women wouldn't talk, or that he wouldn't get someone pregnant, or that a tabloid wouldn't find out, or his wife wouldn't find out. I mean... he lived through Clinton's Blow Job. And we all know that Bill banged a shitload of women before and after Monica that he hasn't been "caught" on. But eventually one will come out.

It's really a head scratcher. Tiger didn't have to get married. Or if he did, he could have been honest while they were dating that he wanted an open relationship (and if he was man enough that she could as well). I don't think there's any doubt that's what Bill and Hillary have long had.

Well, it's becoming more clear as to why Tiger never played a full tournament schedule.

A fourth woman turned up today, and one report says that British tabloids have found FOUR more* for a total of 8 Tiger tails. So far.

Poor guy was so busy chasing women that he barely had time to golf. And still, he played (golf) at such a high level. The women he played with weren't quite as high-level.

*by "have found FOUR more", I mean "have been approached by FOUR more offering to sell their stories". Reliability not guaranteed. But still...

This, coupled with more allegations of an increasing number of mistresses that Tiger Woods had, make this story take a more darker route.

It was the mother-in-law with Elin following over in the Caddy. Was my general guess when seeing it on the tube this morning.

I wonder how long this lasts. In any way, golf's ratings will most likely decline. Unless everyone is drawn to Mickelson that is.

Sports Medicine Pioneer Subject of Doping Inquiry

Quote:
A Canadian doctor who has treated many N.F.L. players as well as Olympic medalists like Donovan Bailey and the world’s top golfer, Tiger Woods, is under criminal investigation in the United States. He is suspected of providing athletes with performance-enhancing drugs, according to several people who have been briefed on the investigation.

The F.B.I. investigation of Dr. Anthony Galea, a sports medicine specialist who has treated hundreds of professional athletes across many sports, follows his arrest on Oct. 15 in Toronto by the Canadian police. Human growth hormone and Actovegin, a drug extracted from calf’s blood, were found in his medical bag at the United States-Canada border in late September. Using, selling or importing Actovegin is illegal in the United States.


That's just the lead. There's quite a bit more.

Not a surprise. The amount of people who are clean you could probably count on one set of hands (wild hyperbole that's not far from the truth).

Looks like there's a chance that CBS is going to be really, really, really happy about the folks playing well heading into Saturday's round.
