Tiger Woods Adds Another Apology
There was one time during the 13 1/2 minute speech Tiger Woods gave on Friday that seemed, well, un-robotic. That was when Tiger flipped out at the media and paparazzi (Ed Note: Lady Gaga does not approve.) for their continued patrolling of his kids. It was a fine thing to say, but just seemed like the only time Tiger was genuine the entire time he spoke.
Well, Tiger apologized again, this time in a letter to the parents of anyone attending the Premier Academy in Florida with his daughter, again blaming the media for their badgering of his kids.
"We hope that the paparazzi will find something better to do with their time in the near future," the letter said.
"In the meantime, it is our goal to keep life as normal as possible for our children," the letter said. "We are sure that as parents you can appreciate that. For Sam, that normalcy means attending the school that she enjoys so much."
Listen, I am all for protecting Tiger's kids and such, but I really wish he wouldn't get so heated about it. He is supposed to be on the defense right now, and continuing to send messages to a group of people that clearly won't listen seems like a waste of time. I wish the cameramen would leave and let the kids be, but it isn't going to happen. If Tiger had any grasp of reality he'd understand this. The first photographer that lands a picture of Elin and Tiger, together, picking up the kids is probably looking at five figures, and that is the person's job, as sleazy as it is.
Unless laws change in this country, this will continue to go on. I think the letter was appropriate, but this stuff isn't changing. Something else I wish wasn't around? People shooting other people with guns.
