Here We Go

So far, I have stayed on the sidelines with the whole Tiger Woods affair scandal stuff because I actually don't think there is anything to talk about or report. His affair was wrong and it should be a private affair.

My beef with the whole story is the sad fact of how people live and breathe scandals. Stop and think about why every news outlet picked up the story and ran with it. There was a car accident in the middle of the night, an affair, plenty of girls coming out of the dark, and Tiger hiding out somewhere in the world. The reason why the news outlets picked up the story had nothing to do with the above, it had to do with the sad fact people in this world love gossip. This wouldn't be a story if the people who read, listen, and watch the news were interested in something other than boring gossip. You, the people, created the whole story.

You can say he's a role model but why do you even look up to professional athletes in the first place. Try to mimic their skills and movements but copy their way of life? Come on, you are just setting yourself up for a dramatic failure. I have always looked at pro athletes and copied what they are good at...playing the game. Do I want to copy their life styles? Hell, no!

Gossip is just plain old crap that teenage girls spread during their high school years.
