Tiger Comeback

OK people. Time to stop talking about Tiger Woods and his private (or public) affairs. This country needs a new public scandal and someone else to humiliate and prosecute. Plenty of shady people in politics, entertainment, sports. Why is everyone focusing on Tiger? Maybe because they were envious of how amazing and successful he was and now realized he wasn't perfect after all. 

I don't defend him or his actions, but seriously people in this country have no shame. You see these TV shows like the Real Housewives, Jersey Shore, The Hills, Jon & Kate, and all these bullshit celebrities and retarded people who have become the icons of today's American culture and it's impossible to say that Tiger Woods is worse than them. He is definitely not. 

Yes, the guy got a little carried away with his affairs. I can imagine that most people in this country secretly wanted to be him. And others were happy to see him fall because of jealousy. He is a black dude who became the biggest Golf Superstar of all times. He made golf fun and exciting for people who didn't know what golf was before. And he was young, and he was cool, and he won everything and had a lot of money and his own video game. And now people know he has a huge penis too. Fuck, that would make anybody jealous.

Tiger Woods is one of the best athletes in the world. Period. Whatever happens behind closed doors is his own business, and the media in this country thinks that 'the truth must come out' always. The fact that you are famous doesn't mean your life is public. And this is where this country is fucked. Being in the spotlight for being the best golf player in the world doesn't mean that everything else about his life is public domain. He is not Paris Hilton or Jon Gosselin, who do nothing but get attention for no reason. The media here thinks it is their right and their obligation to expose everything, and that is bullshit. 

I'm glad Nike stayed behind Tiger. He will bounce back stronger than ever. He fucked up. So what? Lots of people do and some never get caught, but that does not make them better than Tiger. He is still an amazing athlete and he has donated millions to charity and participated in many world-changing events. He is not the bad guy here. He made a mistake, and it was a big one, but it can happen to anyone. The media and the people who are desperate for attention are the problem. 

I hope he wins the U.S. Masters and gets his confidence back. The only one who should be pissed of here is his wife, and of course the girlfriends if he lied to them, but this is not for everyone else to judge and criticize him. Most people breakdown with a lot less attention and would do crazier things if they had 1% of his money or fame.  

I'm still a big fan and supporter of the way he handled this whole mess. Not easy to come out of your house or go out and play golf with everything that has happened. I respect him and I hope he gets his shit together and prove everyone how great he can be.
