We need our Superheroes so give Tiger Woods some space. Please.
Whadya think? Would you believe it? No way? Oh Yeah? The rumors fly.
Just about the time Tiger Woods was crashing into a hydrant, the Salahis were stealing some of the limelight, gate crashing the White House.
Running with both hot stories, the media has enjoyed a feeding frenzy. Tiger can be grateful to some extent to this audacious couple who sashayed onto the front page stealing some of the limelight from arguably the greatest super sports star of our time.
But that’ s what the media do. It’ s their job. They report the news and typically give the most ink to the stories that reap the most ratings. Things that happen to people at the top of the food chain usually score higher than Joe the Plumber. But then, the media can make their own stars too - like Joe the Plumber.
We the viewers have choices. We don’t have to buy into it. We can switch the channel to PBS and watch Andrea Bocelli’ s Christmas concert or go to the Golf Channel for a lesson in sand shots. But those people who are drawn to a fire, love to watch this stuff.
Which is more important: the fact that our country’s highest profile, most highly admired golfer has a sad and serious problem brewing in his personal life or that a pair of smoothies could get close enough to the President of our country to blow him, his vice president and a lot of other upper echelon movers and shakers to bits.
And I don’t have to tell you if Nancy Pelosi was not at the party, she would then become our president. Terrifying thought.
So weighing what really counts, I am opting to give our Superhero some space to sort out his family life el al. We need our Superheroes and I’m not ready to give up on a guy who has given so much to the game we all love.
He is after all human. And think about it: Superman has a continual identity crisis along with commitment issues with Lois Lane while Batman escapes in his Batmobile to his cave for heaven’ s sake. And still we love ‘em.
Personally I’m going with Brandon Tucker’s story of what happened. Works for me.

I agree with you on Nancy Pelosi, though.
