Sorry, So Sorry: Tiger Woods Apologizes to the Universe … Was it Necessary?



Maybe it’s not Tiger Woods who owes us and apology.

It was the most anticipated apology since President Bill Clinton’s mea culpa. Yesterday Tiger Woods made the apology heard around the world, televised, on radio, streaming live on the Internet. Tiger Woods apologized again for cheating on his wife, without revealing the scope of his infidelity or when he will return to golf.

“I have made you question who I am and how I could have done the things I did,” Woods said.

Woods’ wife, Elin, did not attend his first public appearance since he crashed his car into a tree outside their home three months ago, setting off shocking allegations of rampant extramarital affairs.

“I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated,” Woods said. “What I did was not acceptable.”

Woods stated during his apology that “people want to find  out how I could be so selfish and so foolish.  People want to know how I could have done these things to my wive and children”. Actually, it is none of our business. Was it wrong what Woods did? Of course. However, why is it our business and what harm did he do to any of us, except to diminish the play of golf we see on TV.

This is between Tiger, his wife, his kids and his family. Yes Tiger is a public individual with many sponsors, but his personal life is his own. Tiger Woods is never going to affect any one of us, he won’t be coming over for dinner and we won’t be having a beer with him.

However, on the other hand … the apology that we look to Tiger for, we might wanting to be asking for from our elected politicians. Maybe they should provide the American people with an apology for the insanity, record deficits and big government that they have saddled us with. That demands an apology. What rehab can politicians go to for their addition to wastefully taxing and spending We the People’s money?

Woods is 100% correct on one thing, his family should be left alone.

Tiger further went on to say:

Woods did not say how much longer he would be in therapy, only that “I have a long way to go.”

Pool photos were released Thursday of Woods hitting golf balls on the practice range.

“I do plan to return to golf one day,” Woods said. “I just don’t know when that day will be. I don’t rule out that it will be this year. When I do return, I need to make my behavior more respectful of the game.”

      No wonder he never gives interviews. He speaks like a robot, and a very slow robot, at that.

      I forgive you Tiger. Advice time. Get divorced and stay single.

      Woods therapy needs to focus on fairness to others. Considering others. Other human beings cannot be only stepping stones of a heavy pocket and a position of power. Being a bit normal is one thing; being a beast is not one thing at all.

      Tiger only needs to try and mend the difficulties with his family, period. All Elin ever wanted was a faithful husband and a father for her children. I hope it works out for them but I have my doubts about Elin considering her return to marriage…who could blame her…and the women involved were obviously only in for the money…what trash!!!! Rachel says I am not a whore, I guess she doesn’t know the meaning…Elin has a tough road ahead of her….

      Tiger will probably come back bigger than ever…he knows what a public figure he has become and will take advantage of it all….I think Elin should take the money and run…she wants an on going relationship with Tiger as a parent but he can still see his children and be a father to them…she’s young and beautiful and deserves a nice life….!!!!!
