Ok, so not that tiger...but let's talk about this Tiger.
Woods was on Mike & Mike yesterday and is the buzz all over the sports and entertainment world. You can listen to the full interview here or read a recap here.
How would your life be if that Thanksgiving day didn't happen? If that didn't happen, I don't think I would be as blessed or as balanced as I am now. Last November, everything I knew about myself changed abruptly.
Are you a happier man today? Definitely. More clear about my perspective, who I am and where I want to go. Its amazing how much better I feel internally each and every day.
On his thoughts about being a better player: I can't get better as a player if I don't get better as a person.
What do you say to those that say you have used performance enhancing drugs? Everyone is entitled to their opinion....
Tiger, what are you thankful for for this Thanksgiving? I am thankful for my kids. I enjoy teaching them something each and every day. Something my dad would do. I try to now do the same thing with my kids and its a blast.
So what are your thoughts? Reactions to the interview have been all over the place. Some saying that Tiger was very fake, rehearsed, and robot-like. Others say that he has always been a private person, and so to have this kind of reaction on a phone interview is pretty standard.
I think it was the right time for this interview. I think that his reaction to the questions were rehearsed, but not because a PR agent is whispering in his ear. He is clearly going through therapy and concentracting on himself and his kids...which IMO is a must. He said that he is happier and well balanced now. I believe that. A man sleeping around with every skank around are not those actions of a happy man. I am ready to see him be that player again and move on from this.
So as a golf fan (or not) will you watch Tiger? Will you cheer him on for more championships? We all know that other athletes (i.e. Great Michael Jordan) played around in the same extra curricular activities as Woods. So when does it come back to the game? When will we see the same red-shirt-fist-pumping-champion-winning Tiger again?
