At least his behavior is no where near the "crap out" rate we see here at WGT. We don't know him or what is going on in his head or life. There isn't one human on this site or anywhere else that can identify with him or his talent that history has yet to provide another example. He will, on his time and his dime, work past it and return to his proper and undeniable stature. He is, the best that ever lived, like it or not. He has hit shots that no other pro, living or dead, ever dreamed of.
Absolutely dead on! I've come to expect nothing but intelligence and a razor sharp wit from you SP. I'm happy we are friends :-)
I'm indifferent about celebrity. I love what athletes can do on the court...or field, or ice, or green. But, I don't live their life. The pressures put on male athletes we will never understand. I was a student athlete in college. You get to know all the other teams players because you are always around each other. Even then you would see it. Guys on the football team or basketball team who were going places, always had women acting a fool and throwing themselves at them. I can't imagine what it must be like for a millionaire athlete. I also know that rare is the man that can have it thrown in his face at every turn of his life, and walk away from it. I don't agree with it, but I know that's how it is.
I am sad to know that Tiger failed his wife and family. I certainly don't condone it. But, who am I to judge him? I am far from a perfect person myself. Building people up, then trampling them when they stumble serves no purpose to me. I definitely never want to be the on trampled when I stumble, and I stumble often, just not on ESPN.
I may not agree with some of his life choices, but that has no effect on my thought of his game. I think we all should hope he finds his way again on the course. How many times have we all wished we could see just one more amazing Michael Jordan moment, or Wayne Gretzky pass. The greatness flies past us quickly. I hope he has lots of magic moments left. He is the best we've ever seen.
