Crime riddled sidelines in football. Steroids and Pete Rose in Baseball. Gambling and sudafed in Hockey. Adultery in Golf.
So Tiger Woods had an affair. So What? Who honestly cares that a man had sexual relations with another women other than the one he was married to. A sitting (haha – get it) President of the United States was caught in an extra-marital affair – and he is still to this day accoladed as a wonderful president.
Check out these stats on extramarital affairs. And these are only compiled with numbers of people who will admit to it! No one will ever know the true number behind it, there are many that get away with it, and others who continue to hide it.
As fans, I think we need to separate ourselves from the game these “role models” play, and their personal lives.
Let me ask you this – do you want your kids role model to be Tiger Woods, oh no, he had an affair, we don’t want our kids watching Tiger Woods! Or Sean Avery? Enough said.
Keep the private lives private, and enjoy the game these men and women play. Look up to real role models.
Personally, I think Woods is a damn fool, I mean, have you seen his wife?
I wouldn’t be able to find the time to stop staring at her if she were my wife let alone find time for an affair – but the man does travel alot, and has needs. I am not condoning what he did in any way, but it happens. I mean look at the broad he slept with:
She’s not all that unattractive either.
In a time when we all have more important things to worry about, who cares that he had an affair? I don’t.
