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, "...it 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...

...it'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?

heh heh, they should start calling him 'hound dog woods'

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!

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
