Did you see that nauseating, self-serving apology dished out by Tiger Woods this morning, complete with pregnant pauses and flashes of self-righteous indignation?
I haven’t seen such a classic “I don’t like the man I’ve become” speech since Vernon mayor Sean Harvey confessed to faking dinner receipts a few years ago. This is always intoned, as if to say, “That was someone else who did that. It couldn’t have been me, because I’m such an honourable person at heart.”
Give us a break. Woods cheated on his wife so many times David Letterman would have to do a Top Ten every night for a week just to keep up. But then, of course, Letterman had to eat his own humble pie awhile back.
I agree with one of our newsroomers who said, in effect, “Sex addiction my ass. He’s rich, famous, and women were all over him. He took the opportunity.”
The only difference between Woods-Letterman and any other man or woman who cheats on his/her spouse is that they’re rich and famous and people are curious about the rich and famous. The only help the Tiger needed was to get caught so he’d have to face up to it.
