Two things I want to disclose before getting deep in this post. 1.) I hate CNN. 2.) I am a Tiger Woods homer. If you have ever read my blog you probably already know I will defend him. So here we go…
First off, the setting for the interview with Earl Woods Jr. and a golf course in the background is pretty lame. Does Earl Woods Jr. even play golf or did they just do that because his half-brother Tiger is the best golfer in the world? Second off, to include skank Joslyn James just goes to show how low CNN would go to put this “feature” together. This “special” was pretty much a waste of everyone’s time.
Every single thing that was said is old news. The fact that CNN would promote a “rare look” into the of life the world’s first billion dollar athlete is a joke. The whole episode was a joke. If what you call a “rare look” consists of “Tiger being gracious enough to let us fly with him on his private jet to his dads funeral and then walking the other way with his entourage,” then CNN needs to be shut down. The first part of the show tells us what happened, again, like we don’t already know how everything went down. The next portion of the show is bringing in some porn star to tell us how she was hurt by Tiger and blah blah blah. Most of the remaining part of the show was Earl Woods Jr. telling us how he is disappointed in Tiger and how his love for Tiger is unconditional and Tiger hasn’t reached out to them since his fathers death and so on. Sprinkle in Sports Illustrated golf writer David Dusek piling on, and there you have it, “Downfall: The Tiger Woods Scandal.”
I am still trying to figure out Earl Woods Jr. intentions with this interview? What was he trying to accomplish? Does he want Tiger to cut him a check? Does he want Tiger to buy him his own private jet so they don’t have to share? Does he want Tiger’s old house in Isleworth? It seemed like in the article on CNN yesterday promoting the show, they were going to talk all about their other half-brother Kevin, who is ill, but they didn’t do much talking about Kevin. Did he think by piling on and trying to make Tiger look worse that Tiger will all of a sudden jump on his private jet today and come visit? In fact, the piling on probably just got you another 10 years of no contact and next time he probably won’t let you on his private jet, or even flip the bill for you to fly coach. You told me nothing that I didn’t already know and a story like this is not going to slow Tiger down, so I am still confused why it was done.
Now to the porn star portion of the interview. I have made my feelings about this chick known in the past on this blog, and I am not going to spend much time on her, but she needs to get over the fact she thinks she was hurt or Tiger loved you. You were a piece of ass for Tiger and that’s it. Period. Get over it. Stop acting like a 9th grader who just got dumped by the star quarterback after he took your virginity. You are a porn star. If you need to get paid, all you have to do is go and lay down somewhere, and collect a check. (BTW.. She needs to lay off the crack or coke or heroin, she looked like a worn out rag-doll during that interview.)
Most of the blame should be put on CNN for doing such a horrible piece. But Earl Woods Jr. just did a lot more to hurt himself with Tiger than he did anything good. Everybody already knows Tiger is a selfish, egotistical person. Look what he did to his family.. And going on record with it did nothing for your chances as well.
