Back in 2007, Tiger “I Put My Penis in All of Vegas” Woods apparently went on ESPN and criticized Michael Vick for not coming out sooner about his dogfight scandal. Via SPORTSbyBROOKS:
“If you made that big a mistake, you’ve got to come out and just be contrite, be honest and just tell the public that ‘I was wrong.’”
“Waiting a long time got a lot of people polarized. … If he would have come out earlier, he would’ve diffused a little more of it.”
What’s ironic is during the same year, Tiger’s people granted an unprecedented interview with Men’s Fitness in exchange for their parent company squashing a National Enquirer story about Tiger having an affair with Mindy Lawtown, according to The Wall Street Journal:
Golf Digest editor Jerry Tarde acknowledged that he was “mystified” that Mr. Woods had agreed to this. Under Golf Digest’s contract with Mr. Woods, the monthly, which is owned by Condé Nast Publications Inc., spent as much as $1 million annually on donations to the Tiger Woods Foundation, printing the charity’s annual report and sponsoring many of Mr. Woods’s preferred tournaments, according to a person familiar with the terms. In return, Mr. Woods agreed to contribute monthly articles on golf techniques and limit his appearances in competing publications
Mr. Woods had cut an unusual deal with American Media Inc., the owner of both Men’s Fitness magazine and the National Enquirer tabloid newspaper. Mr. Woods agreed to the cover shot and photo spread in Men’s Fitness, whose circulation of about 700,000 per issue is less than half of Golf Digest’s nearly 1.7 million, in return for the National Enquirer squelching a story and photographs purportedly showing Mr. Woods in a liaison with a woman who wasn’t his wife, according to people directly involved in the arrangement.
All of this leads toward one simple conclusion about Tiger Woods: He should be forced to marry the now-single Kate Gosselin without a pre-nup. Although, there’s an off-chance he might actually be happy with that. Think about it: She’s blonde, white and will basically do anything for money. (Read: Burying cocktail waitresses.)
