Not News Worthy

Today's blog is brought to you by the letter E.

Today the letter E. stands for Eldrige "Tiger" Woods.

Yup, that is where I am going. I have succumbed to the media madness surrounding Tiger. Oh, and if you don't know what has been going on with Tiger over the past 4 months or so please STOP READING NOW! I am serious, STOP READING THIS BLOG!!!

Last week Tiger Woods came out and publicly apologized to the world about an affair or affairs that he had while married to his wife. As far as I am concerned I don't care. I just don't care. I don't have the capacity to care about Tiger Woods and his extramarital affairs, heck I barely have time to care if he wins a Golf game. I am too busy. I don't have too much stuff going on in my life.

Seriously, why would anyone care who Tiger slept with? To me it's like all those phone calls people make to vote for the next Pop Singer to become a multi-millionaire. I just can't find it in me to care. Maybe I am a mutant, an exception to the public rule. Maybe I am missing a certain coding in my DNA makeup. That would explain a lot about me I suppose.

So I am just going to wrap this up real quick.

Dear Mr. Eldrige "Tiger" Woods,

I do not accept your apology for cheating on your wife. You don't owe me an apology. I don't care if you sleep with every woman in the world. Your actions on and off the Links have nothing to do with me or anyone I know. I don't care if you get a birdy, bogie or even make Par. I don't care what you do with your 1 wood or 9 iron. If your short game suffers it makes no difference to me. Yes, I enjoy the way your play the game of golf and I like to watch you on the links knocking that little white ball around but then again I also like Hockey and Football and those two sports don't make any difference in my life. So to reiterate, I just don't care about your personal peccadillos or what you do behind closed doors. It makes no difference to me. Do what you want and with who you want I just don't care. I am not in your life nor do I know the pressure of your life and what you go through. It is not my place to judge you nor is it the place of the rest of the population of America. So go back and do what ever you normally do in your life.

There you go, short and sweet. I just can't bring myself to write anymore on this. I could, I have a bunch of opinions on this subject and some of the themes it touches on but for the most part I don't care. And really, does anybody care? And if you are one of those people who do care please let me know why you do?

See, short and sweet.


  1. I'm right there with you on this one brother. I was also thinking about blogging on this topic. This whole deal is just ridiculous. Why is Tiger's sex life the #1 news story? There are a thousand other issues that need media attention. Not some golfer's libido. It's shameful really. Though I guess we shouldn't be surprised. The news media always jumps on the latest celebrity gossip because, sadly, that's what the majority of American's want to hear about. We are in the minority, my friend.

  2. I third your sentiment. I don't give a damn what Tiger does in his spare time, as long as it doesn't involve me or my family. And if it did involve me, I had better get paid!

  3. I agree DI, if I aint gettin paid I aint playin.
