Leave Tiger alone

So I’m getting tired of hearing about the Tiger situation in the news. He is definitely not the first person to cheat and he is definitely not going to be the last. I hear sponsors are dropping him. Is it really that serious? This is what happens when you put someone up on a pedestal. Tiger is human and allowed to make mistakes. Leave the man alone.

So since I have the internet back, I’m browsing and I came across an article regarding  Tiger. This article takes the cake and shows how ridiculous the media and people can be. The article is titled “Woods picture disappoints middle school” . So a middle school band was trying to raise money to be able to perform at Walt Disney World. Supposedly the band had been raising money since February and it ended last weekend with a silent auction. One of the items in the silent auction was an autographed pic from Tiger. The band director had requested the picture from Tiger’s media team. They expected the picture to sell for about $$1,500. However, due to the recent events no one was interested in the picture and it only sold for $300.00.

So now, since they don’t have enough money Tiger is getting the blame that these kids can’t go on their trip.  This is a mess. I just don’t understand why they’re not grateful for the fact he even sent them an autographed picture for them to be able to make $300.  Somebody, please tell me why this story was worthy of a news article. The band director needs to be ASHAMED of herself.  She is quoted in this article saying  “I think he let a lot of people down but celebrities are celebrities and we get what we get out of them”. And in this case you got less than you thought you were going to get out of him. She needs to stay out the news and tell them kids to bake some more cookies or wash some more cars if they really want to go. She must have never heard of the old saying… Don’t count your chickens before they hatch and don’t spend money before you even get it.

Puhlease, leave this man alone. He is human just like the rest of us. Take him off of that high horse that you put him on.

    OMG I am soooooo sick of “Tiger” talk. I have not read one text message or listened to any of the voicemails. I can’t! I don’t know why people are acting like his azz is the first to ever cheat. This situation is not NEW at all. Cheating has been going on since the beginning of time. Not saying that it’s right, just that it’s not new. 

    It makes you lose respect for newspapers/stations/sites. The line between gossip blogs and news websites is so blurry. I can’t tell one from the other. Apparently one does not need to go to journalism school to be a journalist. ANYONE can be one! Even you and I!!!!!! 

    I could not be famous. I couldn’t take the spotlight. AT ALL! I’d mess around and catch a case. True story.
