Cuomo scandals, Biden asked to give back responsibility for the codes and putting kids in "cages", Kerry meeting with Iran...I just can't imagine why Tiger is getting so much coverage

Fact. And this is the problem. We lionize these athletes for their ability to hit/catch/throw a ****in' ball.

Stripper at the club gets my attention way more than someone who can hit a ball and run. She is more talented..

At first I thought you meant to write "idolize", which, is very true.
So, before I acted as a forum prick spelling police (am just a prick, no policing) I looked up "lionize".

and...


Quote:
lionize.
[ˈlīəˌnīz]

VERB
give a lot of public attention and approval to (someone); treat as a celebrity.

and there ya have it...also true.

How did I know that this thread would have the usual "I heard..." and "He probably..." and "He must have been..." assumptions.

Actually, that was an implication that someone else made, bless their heart. So I thought I'd go with it.

Well yeah, but as we all know, too much money at a young age can make idiots out of almost everyone. I'm still a fan of innocent until proven guilty though.

If he was impaired I'd agree with you. But what if he wasn't? Some people just enjoy driving and accidents DO happen even to douchebags that swing the fag sticks.

In related news. Other people are in accidents every hour of the day and are seriously injured or killed. They get 3 minutes or so on the nightly news. I figure Tiger's notoriety affords him three times that. Then it can go in the "who gives a hit" basket.
