Tiger Woods

Did you watch today's press conference?

I did, and I must admit, he seemd genuinely sorry. I'm not sure if he's sorry for his actions, or if he's sorry that the world sees what a scumbag he is. I guess only time will tell.

While I was watching him, I was thankful that Elin wasn't standing next to him. I tried to put myself in her shoes, wondering what I would do if I was in her circumstance. I like to think that I would try to find it in myself to forgive my husband, to uphold my marital vow, to turn the other cheek. In our first session with the Priest that is marrying Scott & me, he talked about marriage as a covenant. He explained that what defined this covenant was the promise to uphold your vow to one another regardless of the other's actions (in other words, if one of us was unfaithful, the other should find it in themselves to forgive... thereby upholding our portion of the marriage covenant).

It's one thing to believe that you could be that way, and another to actually do it. How humiliating must it be to have your husband cheat all over your vows. How hard it would be to have your parents, grandparents, the whole world reading all about your husbands sexual dalliances. I can't imagine what she is going though with the public knowing all of her business.

Even more, I can't imagine what Tiger was thinking. Clearly he has a problem. I'm not a psychologist, but I am so curious why he got married in the first place. If he wasn't married, none of us would have probably learned about his sex-ploits. And if we did learn, we probably wouldn't care. Either way- he DID get married, and apparantly that's something that he doesn't care about. I can't imagine that he'll ever rebound in public opinion. Certainly I will never view him positively again.

One commentator said that the only way Tiger can redeem himself now is to single-handedly capture and kill Osama Bin Laden. Well... Happy Hunting.
