Get 'em Tiger!!

All this Tiger Woods stuff is amazing. I'm not sure why I'm amazed, but I am. The media runs wild with any kind of dirt they can get their hands on regarding celebrities in our country. The feeding frenzy is just shy of the circus that surrounded the death of Michal Jackson.

Almost any time you read about something insane happening in the middle of the night, it's going to be bad for the celebrity involved. Crash your car into a tree, in front of your own home, at a speed of 25 mph? Your wife is trying to "free" you from your vehicle by smashing the windows out with a golf club? Sounds more like Tiger was trying to avoid being grabbed by the tail.

Woods is just another in a long line of men who can't seem to be satisfied by the family they have. They don't value commitment, because they feel they are above such things. When you are given the keys to life's Jaguar before you have to actually work to buy and feel good about earning a Pinto, you just can't build a true appreciation for what you have. It's all too easy and you never learn to have respect or to really care about those who love you.

Men like Tiger Woods don't really deserve (in some sort of cosmic or karma approach) what they have. They don't know how to treat their lives. They have never seen things from the other side. They want what they want when they want it without having to practice self discipline or to feel that tug on their heart that they may be hurting someone else with their selfish actions. If their is any justice, the air horn of life will start blowing every time he lines up a tournament winning putt. Up yours Tiger.........and by the way.....Mr. Ed wants his teeth back.

Where's that tiger where's that tiger where's that tiger where's that tiger
Hold that tiger hold that tiger hold that tiger hold that tiger
Hold him choke him kick him pokin'
