Yesterday, I made light of the fact that you can now bet on what Tiger Woods will say. Today, I'm saying who the hell really cares what he says?
First off, what Tiger Woods did has absolutely no effect on you or I or anybody outside his family. He's not Donte Stallworth or Jim Leyritz who killed someone. I'm not his child who will grow up wealthy but with parents that want to swing a golf club at each other. I'm not a woman whose handler hooked me up with him. I'm a sports fan that likes watching Woods play golf. For all I care, he could spend every single minute of his days outside of tournament play screwing a different broad until he came down with every STD on the face of the earth. I don't care, as long as he stays on the golf course. The only thing he can do today that effects me, is say that he won't play in the Masters, this would piss me off.
Now to the real point, who is actually going to believe his apology today? I don't care if he cries throughout the entire thing. You don't cheat on your wife with a different woman in every city and feel that sorry about it. You feel sorry about getting caught. His apology is just one of the many sports apologies that come out of necessity to save public image rather than actually being sorry about what he did. It's is going to be proofread by 37 different PR reps to make sure it's the best of the best. His apology is going to be completely meaningless and fake and yet I guarantee it's on every front page of newspapers around the country simply because we are American and this is the kind of shit people like.
