Tiger - He's Grrrrrrrrrating

Tiger Wood's redemption clicked into high gear yesterday.  Maybe it's coincidence, maybe not, but he held his big news conference to kick off his participation in the Masters the day after the resurrection.

Here's my view of how the news conference went using actual quotes from Woods.  Of course the quotes are totally out of context.

Masters defender or master deceptor

Tiger Woods sat down  with reporters yesterday and apologized to his fans.  Well, he apologized to a small group of fans...female fans  "I acted terribly...I need to change that. Going forward I need to be a better man than I was before."  Mistresses, past, present and future were thrilled to hear Tiger's words.  "Just because I've gone through treatment doesn't mean it stops."

Reporters were interested in the incident that brought Tiger's infidelities to light: the night he crashed his car on the street in front of his house.  "Winning golf tournaments through all of this is irrelevant to the damage I've caused." Woods totally destroyed his Cadillac Escalade.  And how did his wife Elin react?  "...a busted up lip and a sore neck.  That was about it."  Tiger confirmed he needed five stitches to his face.

Oops, look at the time.  Gotta go.  Someone's waiting for me back at the hotel. 

Asked how he felt about the fans' reaction to their first glimpse of Tiger since the sex scandal broke, he used an analogy from his cheating ways, " blew me away, to be honest with you, it really did."

Hehehe. Yeah, only slightly out of context. It will be interesting to see how he fares this weekend.
You should have written for The N.Y.Times considering the manner in which you wrote that post. It's a gift...

Don: Heh, heh. Thanks. Does the NYT make up their stories too?
Love the punch line...'s like "Wait for it, wait for it." And then "Boom!"

I for one though am surprised you didn't write about your beloved Duke (that retching sound you hear is me ;).

I dunno, sounds about right to me. Excuse me, someone's at my door. It's Jesse James! Gotta go!

UP: Hey it's his line. When something like that if offered up how can I resist.

I don't have to say 'Go Duke' any more until next year! What a game.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Yeah I thought so... Oh, yeah, sure. Good luck with that. Is he building you a bike or taking you for a ride?
Nooter said…
heh heh, they should start calling him 'hound dog woods'

nooter: He ain't nothin but a...

Funny stuff. Love the 'punchline' at the end.

As for the injuries he sustained, it could have been worse - instead of the "Big Bertha", his wife may have opted for the "Bouncing Betty". After all, both weapons involve balls.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: You seem to know an awful lot about golf...or weapons! Glad you liked the post.
Honestly, I'm just tired of hearing about it. Yeah, he cheated. Big surprise, a rich athlete making extensive use of his putter.

Great approach, though, Dufus. Maybe a series of these using actual quotes from different scandals?

"So, Mr. Lincoln, how many times did you cheat on your wife, and when was your last affair?"

"Four score, and seven years ago."
I didn't get the Easter connection. As jaded as I am, I am not jaded enough. I'm sure it wasn't a coincidence. Redemption for 18 holes in 18 holes. PR people are so smart these days.

Chris: Yeah, I'm tired of hearing about it too. That's why I just couldn't take it seriously. He's got the best PR experts money can buy and the whole thing was too smooth by half.

Mike: Did you know he hired Bush's former Press Secretary. I think there's a joke in there somewhere if you wanna use it.
NoName, I think you just told the joke in a subtle, but oh so clever way. Brilliant!

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
