“Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. And did you learn anything.” - Tiger Woods’ father, Earl, in posthumous voice-over for his new Nike television spot.
I think this is brilliant… though I miss the use of music, obvs.
I also think it’s too soon. Like, way too soon.
I also think it won’t matter if he wins. America loves a winner.
I also think he’s an asshole. A talented asshole.
I also abhor golf, so my opinion on any of this is worth approximately $0.02.
Look, I’ll be straight with you. My marriage is… fine, sure. I don’t want to talk a lot of shit on my marriage, but at the end of the day, she’s a Swedish model who married a professional athlete worth over a hundred million dollars. Terrific girl. Would we have met and married if I wasn’t Tiger Woods? Or if she wasn’t a Swedish model? I don’t know, but probably not. Do you know why she came to America? On the advice of another Swedish model who was married to a golfer. It’s just sort of how things go. And to begin with, when your marriage lives and dies in the media, the sanctity of that marriage is ultimately, at best, shaky. There will always be doubt on both sides, because the circumstances by which we came together are so suspect. “He only likes me because I’m a model,” “She only likes me because I’m Tiger Woods.”
And stop feeling sorry for her. She’s fucking Tiger Woods in one of her many luxurious mansions. She’s doing fine. And, at any rate, what does it matter? As far as your golf-watching experience goes, what does it even matter? Did you watch me, buy my games and enjoy my commercials because I ruled ass at golf, or because you thought I was faithfully sticking it only to my wife?
The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith,” said Hume. “He is said to be a Buddhist. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of redemption and forgiveness offered by the Christian faith. My message to Tiger is, ‘Tiger turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.’
Fox News’ Brit Hume: Tiger Woods must become Christian to be forgiven
Agreed… nowhere but Christianity can you be a total fucking douchebag and still gain entry to eternal paradise at the 11th hour.
What a joke.
