I heard that he's trading in the name "Tiger" for "Cheetah".

The reason he hit a fire hydrant and a tree is he had a hard time deciding between an iron or a wood. :)

I can understand someone being offended by jokes at the expense of a normal, average citizen, even one who has done something wrong. But in the case of celebrities or politicians, I believe there is a different standard.

I believe sports celebrities are in an especially different class in this respect. Their ridiculously large paychecks are funded by us as consumers when we spend out hard earned wages to buy life's necessities. A large percentage of the revenue from our retail purchases goes toward advertising, and much of that money ends up in the world of sports.

Keep in mind that these sports figures don't actually do anything constructive in their "jobs". They simply entertain observers by playing games. Few of them qualify as role models, and many of them lead very dangerous lifestyles fueled by the quick cash and the power of celebrity.

I'm not saying that because of their celebrity status that these people deserve to be made fun of, just that I find it much less offensive to do so than I would if these were "real" people.

But really why are athletes and performers considered celebrities to begin with? They are both just doing a "job" that they are more qualified than you or I to do. Do you think any of them could come to your place of employment and do your job? They couldn't do that with mine. Do you and I get dragged over the coals when we make a normal mistake? No we don't , why should they? Private lives should stay private, "famous" or not.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown

Seems though that they have agreed to pay the price for their idol-worship, unbelievably lavish lifestyles and beyond-belief wealth -- surrendering any claim to privacy.

The difference is that my salary is not funded by everyone why buys a product or service in the USA. Sports celebrity salaries are in effect funded by a hidden tax on the consuming public. Nearly every product or service we buy has some portion of the revenue earmarked for marketing that ends up in sports sponsorships.

Another way to look at this is the joke is not about tiger, just the situation. It happens with many celebrities. Think about Leno poking fun at Letterman's recent problems. It just an easy opportunity to make someone laugh, smile or chuckle at an otherwise unfortunate event.

Because we, the media, and their lifestyles make them celebrities, without that they would just be working stiffs. We are responsible. Sad, isn't it.:nono2:

Just heard that Tiger Wood's wife Elin has come out with her own version of a driver. They're called the "Oh no you didn't" woods designed for professional golfer's wives whose husbands play more than 18.

That is why I try to not buy anything from a sponsor of Jeff Gordon or Jimmie Johnson.:eek2:
