Quote of the Day

Tiger’s apology:

I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.

Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.

But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.

Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.
I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.

In other words: “Yes I screwed those broads and I am sorry.”

    I hope he gets everything that is coming to him, if his wife stays with him she is stupid as heck and deserves to get cheated on, only weak women will allow a man to cheat on them and stay cause he has money or brought you a huge diamond(Vannessa Bryant). Please take him to the cleaners, unfaithful punk, I hope he gets dragged through the mud.

  • vegasXV

    …somewhere, Kobe Bryant is shaking his head and trying to call Tiger Woods.

  • Gimmeabreak 78

    Just another case of a celebrity/politician/preacher/athlete who makes money off portraying a “goody-two-shoes” image, but does dirt behind closed doors.

    He doesn’t owe me or anyone else anything, but it’s just an observation.

    @ drenk:

    Nonsense! LOL

    All h-o-e-s talk eventually. Escorts, prostitutes, jump-offs, side peices, second helpings…all that.

    They all talk….ESPECIALY if money is involved.

    Most likely they dont have significant others themselves( and dont care about wrecking a home), and are banking on collecting dollars from the unsuspecting (dumb) man. She (the chick who SAVED the messages and all) did it for a REASON.

    To collect paper. And she will earn it too.

    Now she’s like Jay….On to the next one…..

  • resurrected

    He does not owe us anything but his wife everything and maybe she wanted a public apology since he did embrasses her as well..

  • Lyn Ortiz

    I still love Tiger. I’m proud of him for not being ashamed of his mixed-race heritage. Tiger single-handedly brought down the One-drop rule that Black people will not let go.

  • ♥Kami All Day ♥ (Haters give me Promo.....)

    I think that the “nosiness” stemmed from the white people (in particular, men) because they already envy and hate Tiger at the same time.

    And that’s just for his golf game.

    I mean, we black women know how it feels to see a brother date a white girl…..but let’s play devils advocate and think about what these white men think of a black man dating one of their own??? They DESPISE that sh*t to the fullest extent.

    So, I say that to say this.

    They pressured him, pressured him, and pressured him to come out to the media to talk. Because they were nosey. They wanted to know why these things happened to find out if Tiger was “mistreating” their white princess. This was an opportunity for them to tear him down…..to make America look at him different.

    But we dont. Well, at least I dont.

    He is no different from Eliot Spitzer. Only difference is, Spitzer was white and no one cared enough about him to try and make him look bad.

    THIS WORLD THRIVES ON NEGATIVITY AND IS WHY THE WORLD IS IN THE SITUATION IT IS NOW.
