WTH is going on here? Is this really that important? Every news channel is waiting for his press conference.....CNBC even has people talking about how this will affect endorsements.
It's not like we hav a corrupt government, housing crisis, massive unemployment, two wars or anything!
Pathetci does not begin to describe it. Who cares what this person has to say? Am I the only one who is disgusted?
It’s called capitalism. Don’t shoot the messenger. Your beef is with some of your fellow citizens, the ones watching this charlie foxtrot :)
We even had maps of the route he would take to get there. LOL
Scandals, etc. grab lots of eyes to TV and ears to talk radio. Michael Jackson, John Edwards, Patches Kennedy,
Tiger Woods, steroids, Jon and Kate, etc.
Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet? You know the boys in the newsroom got a running bet. Get the widow on the set, we need dirty laundry. The bubble headed bleach blonde comes on at 5. She can tell you ‘bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye. It’s interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry.
Gee, I haven’t seen it yet. You must be watching too much TV, or the wrong Channels, or I’m just too highly selective.
And I play Golf. Maybe we need some TV screens in the Golf carts ? Yeah, and ONLY play Tiger’s Apology on that station, as its connected to Golf (somehow).
I’m not watching, but I’m curious about one thing: is Elin there?
(I hope not.)
I think that was his point. Said something was wrong with society. Nothing is personal or private these days. Everything is socialized and on its way to being federalized.
btw my cable system took Tru TV and MSNBC off my tier. Then they got back on; COPS, etc. on Tru TV, and we know what’s on the other channel.
Now I tune and and guess what, Comcast has messages on each channel: NOT AUTHORIZED. In other words, it’s off the tier again.
I’M REALLY GONNA MISS...TRU-TV :)
The question isn’t whether it is particularly important ... the question is whether there is anything else more important that must be covered at this very moment. 24-hour news networks have a lot of time to fill ... so they’ll seize on any remotely interesting breaking story that they can.
It isn’t as if they’re pre-empting coverage of anythign else worth watching. Maury Povich, Jerry Springer, and Family Feud reruns are likely worth pre-empting for Tiger Woods.
Prancing with the stars
Tiger is hitting it out of the ball park...golden globe performance so far.
It's really all about money in the end....The courses are losing tons of money without him...
Hallaluyah....We Forgive...Head for the tee....the money making mmachine is back!!!
This thread needs pictures (of his wife and his hos).
Yeah, what a guy!/sarc
Nobel Peace Prize.
; o D
Well, Woods is also big business. And I do mean big. Other peoples’ lives and livelihoods have been impaired by this guy’s degeneracy. I can think of a lot of stockholders who hope Woods has had an epiphany.
I don’t give a crap what the idiot does.
Long run...I feel sorry for the kids because the marriage will forever be in doubt.
Maggie, his Golf game is NOTHING compared to this new game he’s playin on us.
If that Tiger Woods, it would be Obama on every station.
I think you have a point there.
Who wrote this crap?
Tiger could have used 0bama’s acting coach.
Doesn’t sound like Woods is on the road to Damascus...
There’s a reason the TV comes first in “TV news”. News channels are no different than any other channel, their job is to get you to watch commercials, any information they convey is purely an accident and should not be considered indicative of future performance.
R Lee Ermey is on the history channel playing with fun toys if you’re interested.
Ah yes, another phony apology and public act of contrition. He will immediately become a idol of the left, which love nothing more than groveling rich people.
Everybody loves a circus. OR a potential train wreck.
Buddhist. There ya go.
You kidding? (doesn't matter - I bought it ;-)
I'm sure he is sorry. But I am done with him. He made his money on his clean public image and NOW he begs for privacy. Right.
Now, when all else fails, he's found religion.
Depravity of man.
he only owes an apology to his family and the companies he signed contracts with. I never bought anything this man was selling, and don’t much care.
I can’t bear to watch. He’s a Buddhist?
Unfortunately I’m not kidding. Earlier this morning FOX news had satellite pictures with a route marked on it.
Yeah. Says he always has been. It was the faith of his mother. Buddha doesn’t offer freedom from the bonds of sin and true forgiveness.
“Unfortunately Im not kidding. Earlier this morning FOX news had satellite pictures with a route marked on it.”
Did you catch the audible sniffle at the end, before he hugged his mom.
What a performance. Author!
He’s hugging some woman.
Is that his wife?
I have it on mute.
Ohhh. Now, he’ hugging a guy.
Is there something else Tiger isn’t telling?
Elin is not there.
When Woods first started his lengthy statement, I envisioned two women in bikinis standing on either side of him, pawing him as he spoke. That would make an interesting skit for “Saturday Night Live.”
Tiger’s statement just ended....he hugged his mother in the audience and a few other people. Cameras were clicking away the entire time he spoke.
I’m no expert, but last I knew Buddhism wasn’t real big on adultery, either.
It was his mother.
Sniff, sniff, sniff....and YES that was quite a performance. Clap, clap.
This is really none of our business.
His PR people are giving him bad advise, he should have stuck with his original privacy instincts.
