Tiger 'cracks up' (watching cartoons alone)
The Sun (UK) ^ | 10-17-2009 | ALEX PEAKE

Posted on 12/16/2009 10:41:33 PM PST by Frantzie

TIGER Woods is close to "cracking up" after spending days alone watching CARTOONS and eating cereal. Close friends fear the golf superstar, 33, can't cope in the wake of his sex scandal.

He changed his mobile phone number the day after his late-night car crash which sparked a stream of revelations - so friends can no longer contact him.

May be a PR play for pity. When is the PGA going to test him for steroids?

Looks like the moving vans are there and Elin is going. I really respect her now. It seems like she has standards, morals and will not be made a fool by him.

“Family Guy”? Or maybe “South Park”.

Woods’ childhood sweetheart Dina Parr told how he was shattered and wept when he found his dad Earl was cheating on his mum.

I picture that scene of Mel Gibson in one of the Lethal Weapon movies (the South Africans & Krugerands one) with Bug’s Bunny (Three Stooge’s?) playing on the small TV in his trailer on the beach.

Sounds like some generational curses . . . if not demonic influences may have followed the family line down . . .

He could have had prayer for that . . .

I don’t find this funny. If true, and that’s a very big IF, it is a monumental tragedy.

I read the article and it said the cartoon channel may have been the only channel where he could avoid his own story. He is either a mess or this is a NIKE PR dept sympathy play.

Elin looks like she is pissed and has just taken control. Good for her.

Yeah it is is sad if tre and not a PR agency move for sympathy.

I find it also tragic that other golfers played by the rules and he is probably jucin on PEDS/HRH/Steroids. People working like dogs to get better and one person is cheating and the PGA justs covers it up.

Also serially cheating on your wife and leaving he open to GLOBAL humilation.

If watching cartoons while eating cereal is the criterion for cracking up, every guy in my dorm in college was insane.

Hey that was my favorite Saturday routine when I was a kid.

Of course, the cartoons were good then ....

Bugs Bunny / Roadrunner Hour
Johnny Quest
The Archies
The Beatles
Scooby-Doo (without Scrappy Doo)

The only thing that bothered me is that Race Bannon and Dr. Quest turned off the vertical ascent angines before the horizontal engines provided enough forward thrust to maintain lift.

But hey, who am I to nitpick Johnny Quest?

And then you have to have the right cereal(s)...

I hear Spielberg initially was afraid to hire the guy for Lost World bc of his psycho character in Fargo.

This is a lot harder for Tiger than it would be a normal person used to life’s disappointments.

This is the equivalent of telling a kid all in one day that there’s no Santa Claus, no Tooth Fairy and no Easter Bunny and mommy and daddy are getting a divorce and we’re out of money and you can’t have an X-Box and life is going to be filled with disappointment.

We’ll see how he handles his monster reality check, eventually he’ll have to learn a human emotion that has so far eluded him, humility.

Tiger, I’m here to help, BUGS BUNNY is the best cartoon series ever made and in another 1000 years it will STILL be the best cartoon ever made.

“Countin’ Flowers On The Wall”

I keep hearing you’re concerned about my happiness.
All that thought you’re giving me is conscience, I guess.
If I were walking in your shoes, I wouldn’t worry none.
While you and your friends are worrying ‘bout me, I’m having lots of fun.

Counting flowers on the wall,
That don’t bother me at all.
Playing Solitaire till dawn,
With a deck of fifty-one.
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.
Now, don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do.

Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town.
As long as I can dream, it’s hard to slow this swinger down.
So please don’t give a thought to me, I’m really doing fine.
You can always find me here, having quite a time.

Counting flowers on the wall,
That don’t bother me at all.
Playing Solitaire till dawn,
With a deck of fifty-one.
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.
Now, don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do.

Well, it’s good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright.
Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light.
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete.
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete.

Counting flowers on the wall,
That don’t bother me at all.
Playing Solitaire till dawn,
With a deck of fifty-one.
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.

Now, counting flowers on the wall,
That don’t bother me at all.
Playing Solitaire till dawn,
With a deck of fifty-one.
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.
Now, don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do.

Don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do.

I get so sick of these types.

While Tiger has lost millions, he still has more money than I’ve ever dreamed of having. He has two beautiful children. And if what he wants is women, well, I’m sure he won’t have a problem finding those. And he’s young and healthy, which I know several people who would give anything for just that right now.

i’d just like to know why the media is on him all of a sudden. this is not new behavior and it certainly wasn’t a secret (maybe to his wife, but not in the golf world)

so the real question should be, why now? what changed?

or... what did he do or NOT do? (ie: endorse 0bambi’s plans)

sure looks like chicago style politics to me.
i’m just sayin’

I’m for leaving the guy alone. He’s lost all kinds of income, let alone his family.

Changing the phone number is a bad sign. Holing up is, too. If he had drunk alcohol, took Ambien and Vicodin, he would have been in a bad way.

He never claimed to be anything but a golfer. Yeah, there’s the whole other women & maybe steroids or whatever, but man, he knows his stuff on the golf course.

I imagine this is his Dark Night of the Soul time. He needs prayer, this guy.

He’s probably alone to let his wounds to heal and to detox before he decides what to do next. Cartoons and cereal, sounds like he’s reverting to childhood.

Tiger was married for 5 years. His wife went through 2 pregnancies alone, and then raised 2 babies alone. He was involved with so many women that he was cheating on the women he was cheating with.

The story is in the hands of the tabloids and paparazzi now. The mainstream and sports media covered it up for years.

The big media can't protect him anymore. The paparazzi will stalk him for years to come.

Plus, he's being tied to the PED doctor who was arrested.

Sounds like a lot of crappola. There is no news about Tiger so they’ll make something up.

It’s a good thing that Barkley, Jordan, and assorted other whoremongers cannot reach him. He didn’t need enemies with those so called friend.

Honestly, I didn't see any alternative for her or the children. One "transgression" might be dealt with, likely ending the same way or not. In this case it's just best to pack your bags and head for the nearest clinic for testing.

I hope she didn't catch anything.

Tiger should have just stayed single, this just couldn't be something "new"...

And since Woods was screwing around before and during her first pregnancy, he put both his kids at risk, too.
