Tiger Tiger Tiger Woods ya'lllllllllllllllll

All this drama over Mr. Tiger Woods!!

"I'm disappointed"
"Where's the Tiger Woods clearance bin?"
"I can't wear those, my wife will kill me!"
"Bah! The second he comes back, he'll win a huge tournament and all will be forgotten."
I've heard everything from jokes comparing Tiger to Santa to experiencing first hand the falling sales of everything Tiger related in the country's biggest golf store chain. 

Vanity Fair came out with this cover:

Everyone wants a piece of Tiger.
Pierre Elliot Trudeau once said, " the state has no business in the bedroom of the nation."  And I take this, and apply it to everyday life.  What goes on in the personal lives of people, is no business of mine.

So when I think of Tiger Woods, i'll think: a black man who came on to the golf course and broke through boundaries, flew over obstacles and came to be one of the greatest golfers of all time.  period.
