I'm So Sorry for Poor Tiger Woods

Poor Tiger Woods just announced that he is taking an indefnite break from golfing. The recent media howling around this great sportsman has been nothing short of disgraceful. People are so horrible to him, and why? Just because he cheated on one Barbie doll with a dozen or so other Barbie dolls.

Of course, if the initial Barbie doll divorces him, he will lose most of his hard-earned money. As a result, he must now withdraw from playing golf and dedicate himself to mending fences with the Barbie doll # 1 who is using this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to renegotiate her prenuptial agreement. Imagine what kind of an individual races to see her attorney as soon as she gleefully discovers that now she has the perfect excuse to milk her rich and famous husband for even more money.

Tiger Woods had to issue a statement that sounds beyond hilarious to my non-American ear. It starts as follows: "I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people." I haven't heard anything quite so insane for a while. People who can be "hurt" by the infidelity of some one they have no relationship with are not normal. They need to go and get a life immediately.

These celebrity marriages are a total joke. They revolve around nothing other than money, fame, prestige, and who gets to milk the rich person for more cash. It sickens me that the very people who follow these stories on the news with so much dedication preach about the sanctity of marriage and vote against gay rights. Come on, people. Sanctity of marriage, my ass.

People fixate on the sex lives of celebrities because they have no lives of their own. Chewing over the number of lovers this or that celebrity has had lets them live vicariously through said celebrity's experiences.

Yes it is so sad that it happened and worse, that the media jumps on it and blew it so out of proportion. After all this goes on everyday in the straight world. And I agree, how can gay marriage destroy the straight framework of marriage, the straights are doing a good job of destroying it without our help.

Totally agree. This pathetic excuse for banning gay marriage is beypnd hypocritical.

Whilst I do agree with your assessment of how the private life of Tiger Woods is being displayed in the media. I do feel that I have to object to calling Elin Nordgren a barbie doll, just because she is a former model.

She is not just a dumb little blonde model. She is well educated (Sweden has an excellent schooling system). And grew up in a well educated household. She was a nanny because it allowed her to travel for a bit. Her hope was to become a child psychiatrist.

I had no idea that this little piranha was a model, a nanny, or had hopes of whatever. I call her a dumb barbie doll because she doesn't make a life of her own but rather sucks dry a man who was stupid enough to marry her. Anybody who believes that if their spouse doesn't want them any more this entitles them to more money is a dumb barbie doll (irrespective of gender, former profession, hair color, etc.). Even if at some point they had "hopes" of becoming somebody.
